The events of the series are placed a decade after Voyager's return from Delta Quadrant. When the pilot is complete, they'll present it to CBS in the hopes that it'll be picked up. They have also opened an Indiegogo campaign, seeking more funds from Star Trek fans to help make the production even more professional. They've already reached their primary funding goal."
Ah, I see...I believe this is covered by Ferengi Rule of Acquisition 285.Briarbabe":uwhulswh said:

I can corroborate that one. :mrgreen:

I had seen some brief snatches of a couple of DS9 episodes in the past, and it just didn't resonate with me. But now that I've been watching the entire series from the start I know why.
There are multiple evolving story lines in DS9, with complex interactions between them. Jumping into the series somewhere in the middle and watching a couple of episodes out of sequence without all the background and context is not the way to do it. You miss all the connections that give the episodes depth...which explains why I was lost just watching a couple of episodes out of sequence. I didn't get it.
In that sense, DS9 is very different from TOS and TNG, both of which had a much greater focus on self-contained episodes. There were a few continuing story lines in TNG (like the stuff that was happening with the Klingons), and to a limited extent the stuff with the Cardassians and the Bajorans, but nothing like the depth or extent to which the extended plots are developed in DS9. It's actually quite masterfully done.
Eggzackley my experience, Kyle. I started watching the Enterprise series for the first time last year. I had previously watched one episode out of sequence, and my reaction was "...eh...OK, I guess..." I mean, at least it held my interest, but it seemed kind of primitive compared to TNG.Kyle Weiss":fzzkyspl said:...DS9 is a perfect transition to Enterprise, which has a similar "flowing" format rather than an "episode-by-episode" format... :heart:

Really? Ya mean we've got one here on BoB-01? :mrgreen:Kyle Weiss":t95rqrur said:8)
Ah, the tortured-past "security" figure...enigmatic and calculating, and entertaining when caught off guard by reality. There's one on every vessel (or space station), or so it would seem.
