    I had been waiting for that and then totally forgot about it. thanks.

    I've been listening to some of the Mission Log podcast and they're into DS9 right now. Entertaining enough, nostalgic background noise.

    I was anticipating that DS9 documentary and was left feeling a bit off about it. Like I probably didn't need to now how the sausage was made.

    Got the impression that Mark Alaimo could be a real dick and maybe Avery brooks too. Sounds like Terry Farrell had a meltdown to create long term regret. I also think Nicole de Boer picked up the ball and ran with it.
    Sports analogy from a guy who doesn't watch any sports :facepalm2:

    Armin Shimerman and Max Grodenchick sound like the coolest people you'll ever meet.

    Terry Farrell used to live in my neck of the world in Hershey PA. That is until she divorced her first husband. She is now married to Adam Nimoy, son of Leonard Nimoy.

    I recall that on one of the DS9 convention panels that Marc Alaimo said he had an alcohol problem. Ever wonder why Avery Brooks has never appeared in anything past Deep Space Nine?

    Well that makes sense now lol, there are a few episodes of Deep Space Nine that I have not seen yet and the 1st and 2nd episodes of season 1 are two that I have never seen until tonight...I didn't know DS9 began with showing Sisko at Wolf 359...

    For the third time I've gone back to watching Deep Space Nine - But this is the First time I'm actually enjoying it.

    Because it is often slower, less action, than the other Star Trek series I at first didn't like it.

    But now I see the story development, drama and yes even humor make it well worth watching.

    And, again trying for the third time to like 'The Expanse' and getting through one complete season of that
    dreary nightmare {my opinion}, any other space adventure might seem good.

    Tell me, those of you watched the Expanse all the way through, does it get any better latter on or does it stay dreary,
    overly talkative and dull through all seasons ?

    I've heard rave reviews of the Expanse however I've also heard that it's extremely talkative, very heavy on dialog with a lower percentage of actual sci-fi action that we would expect from a sci-fi show...So because of that I have not watched any of that series...

    Way of the warrior is a great two part story (season 4 episodes 1 & 2) which in my opinion really sets the tempo for the seasons that followed...

    My favorite episodes were those that features Elim Garak. You never knew where he stood. The last season that featured the war against the Dominion were the best in my opinion. I ran across some obscure website that was playing all the episodes of Deep Space Nine. I sat in front of the computer and watched every episode before they removed them.

    I really like Star Trek Deep Space Nine. I watch it again about every two years layely. There just aren't that many sci-fi shows out there ( that are not horror). So I end up watching most of them over and over again
