Trekathon 480: Call to Arms (1) (DS9)

August 28th, 2012

That Federation-Dominion War finally kicks off.

It’s the end of the season, so we’re going to get a cliffhanger. But abandoning the station to the Dominion and Cardassians is a pretty good one. As always with the cliffhanger, it’ll come down to the resolution of course – but as setups go you’d have to look back to Best of Both Worlds as a setup.

One change is that the special effects must be getting a lot cheaper, as we’re finally escaping from the ‘tell don’t show’ bias of the show historically. This is also about the fifth change in setup for this show – maybe this time the writers will finally find consistently good stories to tell.

480 down, 257 to go.
