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 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.

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.
