Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Season 1Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
The date: 2369. After 60 years, war-torn Bajor finally wins its freedom from a brutal occupation by Cardassia. Weak but wary, Bajor's new provisional government invites Starfleet to oversee and defend an old Cardassian mining station in orbit. In hopes that aiding Bajor will one day lead to its joining the Federation, Starfleet assigns Commander Benjamin Sisko to head the station, now dubbed Deep Space Nine. A single father still bitter over the loss of his wife in battle, Sisko is not happy about the mission — until he discovers a stable nearby wormhole to the distant Gamma Quadrant and meets its builders, the aliens worshipped by Bajorans as "The Prophets." Overnight, the station becomes a strategic hub of commerce and exploration where Sisko and his crew must help heal Bajor, keep Cardassia at bay, and handle whatever unknowns might be lurking just beyond the wormhole.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoEmissary||In 2369, Cardassian forces finally withdraw from 70 years of Bajoran occupation -- leaving the planet, the people and an old orbiting mine station stripped and depleted. Asking for Federation aid, the Bajorans get widowed Commander Ben Sisko to head up the joint team -- including a shapeshifter constable and a feisty Bajoran liaison. Still bitter from his wife's death against the Borg at Wolf 359 three years earlier, Sisko's heart is not in his new command at DS9. But first contact with Bajor's "gods" and the discovery of their "temple," a stable wormhole across 70,000 lightyears to the Gamma Quadrant, suddenly gives him a hot command and a new outlook.||1:30:48||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|2||Closed CaptioningVideoPast Prologue||Kira has barely gotten to know her new DS9 colleagues or settled in as a "legitimate" officer of post-occupation Bajor when she has to confront an old fellow freedom-fighter who can't give up the fight -- and the infamous Duras sisters from TNG are a surprise part of his plans.||45:26||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|3||Closed CaptioningVideoA Man Alone||Odo, the station's mysterious, gruff and yet incredibly fair shape-shifter constable, falls under suspicion for a Bajoran's baffling murder -- and xenophobic hatred rears its ugly head in the station's rush to judgment. Meanwhile, Chief O'Brien's wife Keiko opens a school for the station's youth, and convinces Quark's brother Rom to send his own son, Nog.||45:27||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|4||Closed CaptioningVideoBabel||An aphasia-like virus planted in DS9's food replicator system by the Bajoran underground against their onetime oppressors lies dormant until being activated during refurbishment. The baffling babble epidemic leads to a quarantine that falls to Kira to cure, while the immune Odo and Quark work together to avoid a panicked ship's destruction.||45:28||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|5||Closed CaptioningVideoCaptive Pursuit||The first two species to visit through the wormhole are hardly ceremonial: one, described only as "Tosk," is being hunted in a formal, ritualized sport that both he and his pursuers enjoy. Tosk befriends O'Brien, who breaks Prime Directive protocol by interfering long enough to set Tosk free to continue The Hunt.||45:27||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|6||Closed CaptioningVideoQ-Less||Famed for their encounters with Capt. Picard, John deLancie guest stars as pesky super-alien "Q" and Jennifer Hetrick reprises her romantic rogue archeologist Vash -- last seen on TNG headed for the Gamma Quadrant. Their mischief and running spat, though, is confused for a bizarre crisis apparently linked to her artifacts being auctioned by Quark.||45:29||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|7||Closed CaptioningVideoDax||The nature of Trill symbiosis is explored when a Klaestron commando legal team tries to kidnap Jadzia Dax for alleged treason committed by Curzon, the prior Dax host. When Jadzia refuses Sisko in defending herself, the victim's zealous son and prosecutor is shocked to find the truth is a family secret held by his mother.||45:18||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|8||Closed CaptioningVideoThe Passenger||The master Kobliad criminal-scientist Rao Vantika is presumed dead after an inmate transport fire, but his wily pursuer Ty Kajada is not so sure. Her incredible tales of how Vantika has already prolonged his life finally hit home: Vantika has implanted his consciousness into Dr. Bashir, who tries to "escape" with Vantika's henchmen.||45:28||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|9||Closed CaptioningVideoMove Along Home||If the Tosk and Hunters were surprise guests from the Gamma Quadrant, the first formal delegation is just as unorthodox. The Wadi are gamers, and Quark winds up leading the welcome until he realizes the Wadi game he tries to play is using the senior staff as real-life pawns.||45:18||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|10||Closed CaptioningVideoThe Nagus||Grand Nagus Zek, the leader of the Ferengi Alliance, pays a surprise visit to lowly Quark's Bar to host a conference on exploiting the Gamma Quadrant -- and names Quark, not his own son, as his successor. Quark soon finds the "honor" a dangerous one -- and not at all what it seems.||45:18||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|11||Closed CaptioningVideoVortex||A suspicious Odo is still intrigued by Rakhari fugitive Croden's claims of clues to the constable's shape-shifting roots back near Croden's Gamma Quadrant home. Once there, Odo is angered that the ploy is fake -- but softens when he sees the man and his daughter are political targets.||45:22||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|12||Closed CaptioningVideoBattle Lines||Kai Opaka's glimpse of the wormhole and Gamma Quadrant turns tragic when she dies in a Runabout crash on a prison moon.

|13||Closed CaptioningVideoThe Storyteller||Chief O'Brien is reluctantly "adopted" as spiritual leader by a Bajoran village that annually follows the "Storyteller" to fight a demon of the town's collective fears. Meanwhile, on DS9 young Nog and Jake outwit even Quark in the high-stakes world of business.||45:30||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|14||Closed CaptioningVideoProgress||Bajor's fifth moon Jeraddo must be evacuated to make way for a much-needed power plant for the home planet, but one old codger refuses to evacuate. Brian Keith guest stars as Mullibok, who forces Kira to realize just how much she and Bajor have changed in a few short months.||45:29||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|15||Closed CaptioningVideoIf Wishes Were Horses||It's harder to decide what's more incredible: little Molly O'Brien's storybook Rumpelstiltskin coming to life, or Jadzia Dax as a sex kitten. Toss in baseball great "Buck" Bokai come to life, and you'd almost think that nonhumanoid alien envoys are exploring DS9 in their own way.||45:30||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|16||Closed CaptioningVideoThe Foresaken||Dreary diplomatic baby-sitting seems to swallow up Dr. Bashir when three of four obnoxious ambassadors come for a tour of the station. Pity Odo as well -- the fourth is Lwaxana Troi (played once again by Majel Barrett Roddenberry) and her sudden crush on him.||45:28||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|17||Closed CaptioningVideoDramatis Personae||Acting out roles both melodramatic and deadly, the DS9 staff is infected by a viral historical incident archive from an alien culture within the Gamma Quadrant. The Klingon crew that unwittingly brought the virus killed itself in paranoid anarchy, and DS9's crew seems headed the same way unless Odo can stave off the madness.||45:26||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|18||Closed CaptioningVideoDuet||Kira is forced to re-examine her post-occupation prejudices about Cardassians when her running battle of wits with a jailed man claiming to be a notorious death camp leader is actually his remorseful file clerk -- surgically altered in a bizarre attempt to spark culture-wide remorse on Cardassia Prime.||45:30||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|19||Closed CaptioningVideoIn the Hands of the Prophets||A bombing at Keiko's school and a would-be sleeper assassination haunts DS9 amid the rise of a fundamentalist faction of the Bajoran faith. Oscar winner Louise Fletcher guest stars, as DS9 first meets Vedeks Bareil and Winn, rivals in the upcoming election to replace Kai Opaka.||45:29||$1.99||View in iTunes|
