>Because all the characters on DS9, including the "villains" were well written and well acted and there was more depth to them than the usual villain who is a villain simply because he/she is a villain. For the most part, DS9 villains have a reasonable motive for being the "villain" and don't even see themselves as being bad. That's why we can like them.


Well said...  DS9 mirrors the world we live in much more precisely than any other series.  Things are very rarely black & white, there are infinite shades of gray.  DS9 is the only series where that is the norm and not the exception.  Between characters, races, worlds, political and military manipulation...  the entire series spends it's time in the "gray" that most people live in every day.

Me like Dukat and Weyoun.I mean,what this wonderful personage in "Deep space nine" series,me like how Jeffrey Combs play this bad guy.Too me like how Mark Alamo play Dukat.They play excellent. But now do not aboout this: about bad guys in series: like Dominion and Cardassia. Too bad people-this Jem'Hadar,in one episode they capture "Defiant".Jem'Hadar very strong aliens,but they under control Vorta. They words:Victory-this live.


live long and prosper.

The villains of DS9 were by far the most dynamic, intriguing and just plain awesome set of villains of all time! These were the villains that were damn fun to hate! You felt something when watching them, be it hatred or admiration. They were the reason DS9 was such an intellegent and amazing show!


Let's be honest, who here hasn't shouted at the television while watching these villains do evil stuff!?

Good point.  Sometimes their guile and audacity was that forced you to crack a sideways grin in your armchair...
