To be fair, Sisko never really got the chance to prove himself as a captain during peace time at all, so we'd never really know what he'd be like.

We'd never see him out of war tme anyways, considering he's at a constant state of war with himself anyways

I'm not a huge TAS fan but I think most of the best and worst things about it were the result of the format still being considered a kids medium. That there exists an eternal giant Spock inside a planet for all time means as far as I'm concerned it's CANON AS FUCK though.

I'm not a huge fan. Didn't say I hated it. I agree with a lot of the things people say about the good bits, however being a 70s cartoon meant concessions were made and as a result it sometimes feels like they were trying to make sure they appealed to children as they went. Which was to the series detriment. Without this it may well have been the animatrix of star trek. But for me I can't overcome the lame jokes.

The compressed format works in its favour though. They were still learning to TV and sometimes TOS has wonky pacing (not always, sometimes it was bang on) however at 22 minutes it rarely drags.

This is a good point. We have TV now that KNOWS how to TV. Back then, TV was still pretty new. Hell, the reason for the bright colors in TOS was simply because color TVs were new to people. They needed it to pop and make people think, "WOW! COLOR!" Conversely, we now have Flare-Trek which eschews color in favor of darkness.

Don't even get me started on the **conspiracy** that is Deep Space Nine...

Okay, so up until DS9, what was every Trek show about? A STARSHIP. What is a starship?

It's a giant, tritanium-alloy space penis that ejaculates crew members onto strange planets.

Every other Trek show is about a giant space penis spreading its wild oats around the galaxy, sending landing parties down with little phaser penises on their hips, blowing up foreigners and seducing green & blue space women.

All of the other captains are what? Single or unattached. Even in the case of Janeway, her partner is thousands of lightyears away, and she assumes that he has moved on and that she should, too.

They were classic male fantasies, of exploring, discovering, fighting, and fucking.

Now, along comes DS9. What is the main location at which events occur in DS9?

Deep Space Nine itself, of course. A giant, ring-like space station, floating in a stationary orbit above a single planet. It's a giant space vagina! A space vagina attached to a single place, Bajor and the wormhole.

Much of the plots involved in DS9 are not about exploration at all, but rather the crews interactions with alien races who COME TO THEM, in giant space penises, through the wormhole. Alternatively, they deal with things going on with the Bajoran homeworld, or other things going on in the galaxy that somehow affect the station from afar, or directly by coming to them.

On top of that, DS9 is well-known for more character-oriented narratives. It is even sometimes called a "sitcom in space" or a "tv drama set in space". I've even seen it called a "soap opera in space". That is, the show is more about the social interactions and relationships between the characters than about the exploring, discovering, fighting, and fucking of other trek shows.

Additionally, who is the captain of this giant, space vagina? It's a man, yes, CPT Sisko. However, who is captain Sisko? He's strong, confident, determined, yes, all qualities we look for in our Trek captains... however... what is his social situation? He is a father! And his child... lives on the station with him! And yet, he's conveniently single, his wife died.

So, a strong, determined leader... who has shown he has the ability to attract a mate and sire a child... and not only that, but RAISE that child, single-handedly... what is this? It's a whole collection of signals to the viewer that Sisko is an ideal mate.

So... from all of these cues from the show, what can we determine?

DS9 was meant to attract female viewers to a show of which the fandom has historically been dominated by men.

Now, there's nothing wrong with any of that. I'm just pointing out that DS9 is very different from every other Trek show, and there is a very particular reason for that.

Look dude we've heard you spell out this same theory over and over again (I know I've read essentially this same post at least 4 times.) We get that you think that, not everyone buys it (me included.)

Star Trek is not part of some Illuminati mind control program. It's a dumb sci-fi show for nerds paying homage to a sci-fi show for nerds from 50 years ago. If it was part of some grand scheme, don't you think more people would care about it? (I know you're not necessarily saying that, although people who believe ST is from the Illuminati use that same argument about the feminism of DS9 that you just did.)

If DS9 really was their bid for the female audience, why didn't they have a female lead? Wasn't that Voyager's stated purpose? I think the audience DS9 was intended to court is pretty blatantly clear...

This all makes sense but my take is that it was accidental in terms of attracting women. I think it definitely succeeded in that but I think the reasoning behind choosing to have it set on a space station was more to change up the formula and go more in depth on politics while trying out longer story arcs and more character depth, with it being more appealing to women as an after effect.

I think the reasoning with making Sisko a single father was just a pitch a writer gave when asking how to give him more depth. Not trying to be racist but they probably already decided he would be black and it could be relatable to black people to have him as a single parent but without being racist or stereotypical by having it be a single black mother.

That's just my thoughts. But everything you've said including the symbolism makes perfect sense.

Rom is weird because he starts as the sped choice but he's actually more of a fairytale prince kind of guy. Kind, smart (but naive, I suspect as Negus he'd depend on Leeta to spot people's bullshit) and ruling a fucking empire by the end but first he has to learn to believe in himself and stand up to his overbearing but well intentioned (ish, I think he really does think he's protecting Rom he's just wrong) brother. Funny as he's not a main character really but he has one of the most drastic arcs.

Rom's got the skillz to pay the billz with his engineering talents and a good heart, but shitty self-esteem. He's exactly the kind of man a strong woman could mold into a fucking juggernaut. Or failing that just domineer over him and control his finances. but Leeta ain't Keiko, and we can't have the whole maintenance crew in perpetual suffering Plus he's a total mama's boy and a DILF, two more points in his favor.

It's one of my favorite character arcs in DS9, Rom slowly becoming his own man. Also Nog going his own way despite probably having a decent head for business.

I see the two of them as opening a father and son Volvo repair shop, with Nog eventually turning it into a full-fledged dealership.

I love how anytime Rom has a good idea he shares with other people, its never at the forefront of his mind. He's always worried about some personal shit and that brings his self conscious guard down, allowing him to share ideas he may find too "dumb" to want to normally bring up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kufWE2r46w

Idk. The rainman Rom schtick was kinda cute in the beginning but I feel like they drove it into the ground. So the only way a Ferengi can be good at engineering is ironically, just like the only way a Ferengi female can be good at business is ironically? This is all anti-Ferengi bias people! Just because they have been bleeding you dry of latinum doesn't mean they don't have hearts too.

I think it makes sense with Rom though. He's spent his whole life being told by his brother that he's a retard. Even his son doesn't realise he's a genius. He has no self confidence for most of the series because he's spent his whole life being torn down and only lets his ideas slip by accident because quark would humiliate him. I think they did take too long moving away from that from a watchability point of view but from a narrative point of view it would be crazy to be any quicker. Nog's arc is better paced.

Which female are you talking about though? I don't think there's much irony to the mastermind that is Ishka but the one who's just in for Quark's dick is a different matter.

I was thinking of Pel, but the whole thing was tongue-in-cheek.

>>Even his son doesn't realise he's a genius.
Uhm

Anyway I mean the reason they had so far to go narratively is because they created him as a one-off character to try to kill Quark. I was talking mostly about it from a watchability/cringe-factor standpoint, but I also would like to have finally seen him come into his own to complete his arc. Finally tell Quark off, 'I am smart, you lobeless slug!'

Okay so something struck me about starfleet captains. Lets talk about Admirals. We all know Admirals almost always are antagonists (not always the same actual enemy though) or just fuck up. So then I thought about the various captains and their fates.
>Kirk is admiral, gets busted down and is happier
>Picard fights being an admiral
>Sisko is actually threatened with promotion
>Admiral Janeway dislikes a lot of things with her timeline but she's comfortable as admiral
>Archer eventually becomes admiral but also president.

Archer is constantly out his depth and pushing his limits and his main strength as a captain is that he usually pulls through eventually and then jumps into an even bigger fire. That's sort of a metaphor for humanity and his general character arc so I think that makes sense.

And Janeway is like an admiral from the get go.

Anyway I'm just saying that at least makes sense.

Also bonus points. Jellico is one of the admirals who is a good guy but makes the captains do hard things and so still ends up feeling like an antogonist for the first 2/3 of the episode.

I very nearly wrote "lobes" instead of dick. I spent several a while deliberating that.

Oh you know that episode came up on the tube shortly after you posted that and I have seen it and most of DS9 a load and I'm not sure why I thought that at all.

Jellico is a captain which is why he's an inversion. If he'd been an admiral he would have been an old friend's of Picard's who got on great with Riker at first but then turned out to be a lizard monster or whatever.

I really wana know what the hell did the typical TNG watcher think when "Conspiracy" ended like a Sci-fi Horror.

I was seven at the time so my recollection isn't super great, but I recall thinking it was cool and my mom freaking out

i never watched it until a couple of years ago and thought it was fucking rad as hell. a satisfying end to a quite intriguing plot.
