DS9 episodes of a lighter fare!

So one of my favourite DS9 episodes of the "lighter fare" would have to be "Fascination" - one of the Lwaxana shows!

I love that the crew is exposed to Lwaxana's "virus" (Xanthee Fever) and start falling for each other. The only trouble is that, with the exception of Kira and Bashir, people's affections are not returned...and chaos ensues.

I laugh so hard at Bariel's pathetic attempt to kick Sisko's ass. Benjamin just shrugs off his punch and tries to reason with him...then Jadzia steps in and beats him down, simply cause he was "annoying" her.

These lighter episodes are fun. I thinks it was good for them to make these and make sure the show wasn't taking itself too seriously.

I also enjoy "Little Green Men" and "Trials & Tribble-ations".

What are some of your favourites?

In no particular order...

The Foresaken
Trials and Tribbleations
Our Man Bashir
One Little Ship
Little Green Men. *thanks for reminder jg.*



I'll grant you that some of those have heavier moments in them, but overall their tone is quite light. I'm sure there are others I just can't think of what they are right now.

Let me add "In the Cards" (and possibly "Treachery, Faith, and the Great River"), "Take Me Out to the Holosuite," and any episode involving the Grand Nagus.

Can I add half an episode? If so, I loved the Bashir / Lense / JERUSALEM bits of "Explorers". Not so much the Sisko and Jake stuff but the B-story was cool.

I didn't forget. I thought about listing it but just wasn't sure that it was a super-favourite.

Like you, I dig the Jerusalem bit. Big time.

But unlike you, I really liked the stuff with Ben and Jake. Of course, maybe that has to do with being a guy who took a career path not exactly in the spirit of what my dad had really wanted for me.

So I thought it was just really nice to see Ben and Jake bond, gain acceptance, set up a date, and - hey - make history.

"Explorers" is (IMO) one of the good ones.

Great A-story.
Great B-story.

You're quite welcome. :cool:

And you can just call me Driver, I guess. The "The" probably isn't necessary.

In fact, on the "Where does your screen name come from?" thread on the General Discussions board? I can't even participate because I don't remember - at all - why I named myself "Driver." Ha.

I mean, my screen name is the reason I include a runabout as my avatar. So it makes some sort of sense.

(I joined this site 7 years ago, posted a few hundred times, and left. For a long time, obviously. Again, God knows where "Driver" came from...)

On other boards, I usually go by Bagheera. Ya know, the black panther from Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book? I'd like to think we share a lot of the same qualities. :cool:

I've also been known to use the handle Captain Harlock or just Harlock from the Leiji Matsumoto anime.
