I have to admit, I don't always give DSN my full attention. It's more of a background for other activities. Nonetheless, I do enjoy it.
For those old enough to remember the intrigue the Cold War brought to both the little and the big screen during the 1960s and 1970s, DSN might be a blast from the past. DSN is a space station. Unlike other Star Trek franchises, DSN does not take place on a star ship. DSN is stationed near the entrance to the only known stable worm hole in the galaxy. This worm hole provides a vital communication and transportation link between two different quadrants of the galaxy. In addition, DSN is near the planet of Bajor which is recovering from a long war with the Cardassians. DSN is something of a Casa Blanca for travelers and ex-pats in the Bajoran region of the galaxy and a Ferengi called Quark is the owner of the bar.
You'll see some familiar faces from other Star Trek franchises and hear some references to Captain Kirk and his crew. But DSN is less about exploration and more about the trials and tribulations of every day living in a culturally diverse society. And it's about healing the wounds of long term aggression and oppression during an uneasy truce between ancient enemies. We could all learn something.
Watch it. Binge it. Enjoy it.
I spend more time than I like to admit on NetFlix and other services. When I can't sleep or am too exhausted to even think, I pop on the TV. As do most people, I have some definite opinions about entertainment offerings on cable, NetFlix, VuDu, and in theatres. If you're interested, read on....
