Thanks for sharing the secret.  CBS Television is making a crusade to pull all these episodes from YouTube.  Irrationalys's total collection of eps - removed by the soulless minions of orthodoxy.


I think these minions should find a way to get DS9 episodes online.

SCI-FI is missing an opportunity.   They could probably by the syndication rights for DS9 cheap.  They could position this as the precursor to BSG and run it in that time slot before or after their main prime time show (e.g. Caprica).


You could have this run Friday Nights from start to finish (and run the same episode during the weekend).   This possible could do for DS9 what reruns did for the original series.


It was a show before its time.

Im quite shocked some folks dont get much Trek. In the Uk they constantly run all the shows on various channels so there is a Trek practically every night. At the moment its Voyager, TNG and TOS (Voy and TNG has practically been on a constant loop for the last several years) and I saw an ad for DS9 so its either on a channel somewhere and I keep missing it or coming back. I think Enterpris is off air at the moment, but its not one I followed very much so I could be wrong. My lad is already on his second time around for some of the shows and hes only 8.


I guess were much more spoiled in the UK than I realised.

We need A Star Trek Channel on TV that plays all the series every day. 4 hours of each series everyday, nothing but Trek. But i guess that and having all the episodes available on this site will only happen when H3ll freezes over.

rather do stay on DS9 or travel with the Enterprise D?

The fact they aren't reaired is the reason it's the show I'm least familiar with. And that sucks.

Size of screen matters, most computer screens are small compared to TV's, unless of course you plug your Computer to your TV. But it doesn't really matter to me, I have the DVD's, but still for it to be on TV again would be nice.
