My favorite is the seven-episode arc that ended season five with "Call to Arms" and began season six with "A Time to Stand" through "Sacrifice of Angels" with the start of the Dominion War.

ugh, this is so hard. While I personally love the same episodes as what my buddy ^ voted for, my inner critic made me vote for "The Way of the Warrior."

These episodes really got a lot of people back into DS9 who had been lost AND it marked a distinctive turn in the direction of the show. And while I'm loath to give credit strictly to Worf (heart you Mr. Dorn, but too many Klingon emphasized episodes over the years), the addition of the Klingon conflict, the AWESOME new opening title sequence and score, AND the improved space battle scenes made this the best season premiere.

I agree with Trek Dude.

I'd have to go with the feature-length opener that retooled the fourth season.

way of the warrior as a standalone two-part episode, closely followed by the six episodes arc at the beginning of season six

"A Time to Stand" is the best season opener by far. The Federation on the offensive against the Dominion was awesome to watch and quite refreshing to see after all the buildup preceding season 6. :thumbup:

A Time to Stand was the best season opener.

Way of the Warrior all the way! It was a great episode. It was great to have Worf appear and be part of the crew and the station

While A Time To Stand was exciting because it began the Dominion occupation of DS9, Way Of The Warrior brought DS9 back to life when it was fizzling out.

I liked Apocalypse Rising. It was fun seeing some of them as Klingons. :klingon:

I actually loved Image In The Sand. Deep Space Nine was a show that just seemed to get better as time went on, unlike many shows. I still miss it! Sigh!

Way of the Warrior no doubt. All the premieres were great episodes, except perhaps season 2 and season 6 since their multi-part structure meant not much actually happened in them.

I was always a fan of A Time To Stand.

I liked seeing how the tables had turned, and the Federation was on the back foot. It was interesting to see how they would cope under the pressure of war, when the Federation's mission was one of peace. It set up a great season of moraility plays, and opened up great character arcs.

'The Way of the Warrior' for me, personally.

While at times it seemed at pains to show off it's increased budget, Sisko's new look and the fact the Klingons were back with a vengeance, it's scope was marvellous. Worf actually started to develop as a character in a way TNG hadn't allowed him to do FOR YEARS, it twisted the whole antagonism brilliantly by putting the Klingons back into the bad guy spot. And it felt more like a TV-movie than a typical season premiere.

I also remember no other DS9 release on VHS (back in the days you'd get two eps on a £12 tape every few weeks - how primitive!), got me as excited as this when I was a 13 year old boy.
