Will that be for good? Or till after the war?>> At least until the end of the war. <<Do you suppose that there are ancestoral species and home worlds for the Vorta and the Jem Hadar?>> Yes, and we've had a few discussions about finding original members of these races, but haven't developed the idea into a story yet. << First off I must honestly state that overall I have been rather disappointed with *Deep Space 9* so far this year, and I am not quite sure if the show should even attempt another season at this point. The six episode story arc (while containing 2 realy strong shows) fell rather flat in general, and its conclusion seemed a bit trite....My question is this, "Do you feel that "Deep Space 9", along with Trek in general, is a series best suited for episodic television rather than the complexities of a more serialised format (also taking into consideration the sheer scope of the Trekian universe)?".... *Babylon 5*, *Earth: Final Conflict*, *Voyager*, and *X-Files* have all been more satisfying to watch overall than what I have been given in *Deep Space 9*.>> Well, I'm sorry you're disappointed, but I have to tell you that I'm very happy with this season and think the war arc has been the best thing to happen to Trek in a long time. I personally would love to serialize the show completely, but the studio wouldn't stand for it, so we've tried to blend the episodic and serial elements this year. If the stories we're telling aren't to your liking, you may not want to watch the rest of the season because we on staff are VERY pleased with the show and will continue to take it in this direction. I'm not going to beg for your viewership -- if you like the show, great. Keep watching and I'm glad you're along for the ride. If not, well sorry and so long. This is Deep Space Nine and we're doing things a little different in this corner of the Trek universe. <<Ron, can you ask around to see if anyone is going to be at the opening of the Star Trek Exp. in Vegas on Jan 4th?>> Quite a few of us, actually. Rene, me, Ira, Rick, Brannon, several actors and many studio types -- should be fun. <<Since Nog is the first Ferengi in Starfleet and Worf was the first Klingon in Starfleet, has there been any thought given to develop some sort of kinship between the two, seeing as how each was the first of his race in Starfleet?>> This has come up and we're taking some steps in this direction. <<Besides Worf and B'Ellana Torres, are there or have there been any other Klingons in Starfleet?>> Not yet. <<Does it bother you at all that Voyager blatently ripped off DS9's orb experiences and Prophet encounters in the last episode(in which Neelix is brought back to life)?>> TV Writer's Rule Number 72: "Only steal from the best." <<At the end of "Sacrifice," as the Defiant crew comes home after 4 months of bloody slaughter, what is the first thing Miles and Julian do? Run for Quark's holosuites to fight the Battle of Britain!! What were you trying to say with this li'l joke? >> I'm not sure what Hans and Ira were going for here -- I thought it was kind of odd, but they liked it and kept it in. Well, that's all folks -- I am outta here for the holidays and won't be back on this board until the week of Jan 5th. I wish all of you well and hope you have a merry and safe Holiday season and a
