Getting TNG on DVD will be very cool and everything, but does anyone have any word on whether or not they'll do it for my favorite Star Trek series, Deep Space Nine?

And while we're on the subject-- is DS9 even on any more? Our local FOX affiliate used to play re-runs of it very late at night every weekday, then replaced it in favor of (ugh) Charlie's Angels. To hell with them, anyway. Is it on cable at all? Or is TNN going to pick it up? I miss my DS9!!!

I still get DS9 five days a week at noon. It's definitely my favourite Trek as well - it's just got more SOUL than the other ones.

I believe it is part of the TNN contract for them to pick up DS9, probably next fall.

I tried to find a press release or something on the TNN, Viacom and Star Tret websites, but I couldn't. I definitely remember that TNN will be picking up the rights to ALL the Star Trek series, I just don't remember when.

Well, that's a relief. Thanks, Joe. I'm suffering from Stage 1 of Deep Space Nine Withdrawal Syndrome. There are four stages of this disease, the fourth of which is invariably fatal.

So hopefully I'll still be alive when DS9 comes on TNN next fall. LOL!

In March of 2003, Paramount will release Season 7 of TNG.

While it hasn't been officially announced, I would expect DS9 to be released on a similar schedule to TNG - every other month a new season set is released.

The only things that might change that would be:
1) The selling of the basic cable/syndication rights.
It held up BUFFY for quite some time, but it sounds like the timing is fine for DS9. (It gives its TNN run a similar lead on the DVD release that TNG had.)

2) Sales on TNG not live up to expectations.
I can't imagine this being the case, especially since they did O.K. running The Original Series off in two episode disks.

So...
Fourteen months to go!

Unfortunately for all you DS9 and Voyager lovers - courtesy The Great Link (http://www.greatlink.org):

"TNN will begin to telecast "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" in fall 2004 and "Star Trek: Voyager" in late 2006."

Maybe we can make some sort of deal, where TNN will air DS9 next season, and Voyager, well, never. Never, ever again.

Sweet God, Brian. They're trying to boost the Enterprise ratings, not drag them down into the gutter.

I blame the suckiness of Voyager on one primary factor. They always seemed to try and find a techinical solution for everything. Something happens to the ship, but don't worry! We can use the graviton pulsator to emit a low-level EM field to de-ignite the neutrinos in the phase compensator!

And then people are like, Hey, that might work!

And everyone else at home is saying, What the fuck did that guy just say?

They loved to use technobabble in Voyager... loved it so much that they lost most of their audience who didn't know what they were talking about, didn't care, and just wanted Voyager to end.

I'm not saying that TNG didn't occassionally technobabble like that, but not constantly! And whenever they did do that, Data and Geordi were always there to put it in layman's terms for Picard and Riker. And mind you, Picard and Riker were hardly dumb as rocks, but they were command officers, and they needed engineers and science officers to translate that stuff.

Janeway was different, because she had the engineering background. If everyone on the crew (well, save Neelix, but he doesn't count) understands all that crap, then what's the point in dumbing it down?

I wish I could say that this wasn't a frequent occurrence on the show. Unfortunately, it was, and while Voyager had some good moments, I'll always remember the numerous times they lost me when coming up with a solution because they got tied up in the lingo.

But give me back Deep Space Nine! There was the best Trek series on television. The space station isn't going anywhere, so if Sisko were to pull a Kirk and tell Kai Winn to go screw herself, he would have to deal with the long-term consequences of that act.

In TOS, TNG and Voyager, you go to one planet, do something, and leave-- rarely having to deal with the consequences of what you did. But in DS9, you were on a station orbiting a planet, neither of which is going to move anytime soon. Stability was the name of the game in Deep Space Nine, and it allowed angles to develop over the course of multiple episodes and multiple seasons.

And they didn't delve too heavily into technobabble, either. At least, they didn't go as far out there as Voyager did. Plus, the Dominion War was awesome! And I loved the whole seven-year-long Emissary sub-plot. DS9 also dealt with politics and spirituality, and they did it in an enlightened way.

I miss DS9, seriously. I hope when it finally goes on TNN, that they play it as constantly as they now do TNG.

Voyager, I could live without. Indefinitely.

Eddie

i loved DS9 and babylon 5 because both were on space stations [the action usually had to come to them] and they had some great story arcs that were more addictive than herion [that MUST be spelled wrong, but it's 5am, whatchagonnado?]

Voyager was ok for what it was, and I liked DS9 a lot as well as TNG, but I am getting a kick out of Enterprise.

For one thing, there's NO DAMN HOLODECK.

Every other show, the damn holodeck would go crazy, trapping some crewperson in virtual hell. After about 25 times SHUT THE DAMN THING DOWN already.
