I was going through my iTunes library and ran into the DS9 (we all know that stands for Deep Space 9, right?) theme, which I hadn't listened to in a while; putting it on gave me a nice little nostalgic thrill. When I was in high school I knew about TNG and I had friends who were into it, but I didn't watch it regularly and wasn't into it from the beginning, so I felt like I had missed the boat. (In hindsight, that's kind of silly given the episodic nature of TNG, but what did I know?) When DS9 came out, I think it was in my junior or senior year of high school, I decided that this would be *my* Star Trek series, the one I could get in on the ground floor. I loved the theme with its french horns, and I even tried to mimic it when writing an orchestral piece for my Composition class. (And I remember listening to the revamped theme song before the fourth season, leaked online and available via some random website or maybe mentioned on Usenet-- no Youtube or Google yet). Once I got to college, it became a weekly ritual for Jen and I to hunt down a free television somewhere to watch it, a hunt which occasionally led us to desperate straits. It was a definite part of our courtship. Sometimes I have to remind myself just how important our occasions of television were to us back then, and I wonder if we are missing something now that we have our own laptops and our own Hulu feeds. I know some of you still belong to communities based on or supported in part by television shows, and I envy that and miss that.

Salut, DS9.

I love DS9. And the theme too.

We got rid of everything but the basic-est of basic cable, and I realized recently that means I haven't seen any Trek - of any kind or color - in the *longest* time. Perhaps I need to add DS9 to our Netflix queue...... Hmmmm.

I just noticed the other day that (at least some of the) Star Trek movies are available for Instant Viewing on Netflix, if that counts. I have DVDs of DS9 lying about somewhere; I will have to dig them out once this bloody semester is over. :)

Nah, the movies are a totally different animal (to me, anyway). I want to watch *episodes* of TNG and DS9.....

And I did go, straight away, and added DS9 season 1 to our Netflix queue. Yay! (I mean, there are other shows we're watching now - like The Tudors - but we'll get to it, you know?)

OMG, I love that theme.

I have all the DS9 DVD's, although for a sad reason; inherited them from a friends. Made it through Season 3 before I got distracted by life!
