Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.

Synopsis: Commander Sisko and his son move to a station in orbit of Bajor for his new position. There appears to be more than a Starfleet assignment involved here, though.

Reaction: This is a fine first season. The show took a little while finding its own unique style, but this is a solid beginning.

Personal Rating: 7/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • In the episode {Man Alone}, the planet Alderaan is listed as a recent place visited by a murder victim. Alderaan is the planet destroyed by the Death Star in Star Wars.
  • Alexander Siddig was producer/creator Rick Berman's first choice to play Benjamin Sisko, but he was eventually deemed too young. Instead, he got the role of the genetically-enhanced Julian Bashir.
  • Wolf 359, mentioned as the battle site where Sisko lost his wife, is a real star that is 7.6 light years from Earth.
  • Dax was originally envisioned as an alien from a low-gravity world forced to get around in a wheelchair and who flew around her quarters; the concept was scrapped and recycled into the character of Melora because the "flight" cables were too difficult to rig.
  • Reportedly, Gene Roddenberry was made aware of plans for [DS9] not long before his death in 1991, making this the last [Star Trek] TV series that he was connected with.
