ds9 rawks muh socks!

the reason I'm such a fan of ds9 is because of who's in it! I ~love~ garak, the ex-spy turned tailor, and bashir, the genetically enhanced doctor, the jem'hadar, genetically engineered soldiers who are near the ultimate warriors....
dax, the symbiotic slug that's lived through at least 9 lifetimes, kira nerys, an ex-resistance fighter who's joined the bajoran militia, sisko, who is emissary to the prophets, odo, the shapeshifter who's not got any idea if there are others like him - well, 'till they show up to be at the head of the dominion...
mostly garak, the jem'hadar, and bashir are my favorites.

When once asked by Bashir whether he was an outcast or a spy, Garak suggested that maybe "he was an outcast spy." The Doctor asked how he could be both, and Garak simply replied "I never said I was either."

Before each battle, the First states the following speech to his unit:
     "I am [Rank] [Name], and I am dead. As of this moment, we are all dead. We go into battle to reclaim our lives. This we do gladly, for we are Jem'Hadar. Remember - victory is life."
The rest of the unit then responds:
     "Victory is life."
