Hi! I’m so sorry for the late reply! I haven’t logged on here for a while.
And this is also a really hard question :p
Not sure if you could still use an answer, but I suppose this might be valuable information for other people who want to introduce someone to DS9.
Uhm, so the first episode that came to mind was ‘Duet’. It’s still season one so there’s not too much to explain. It’s a great episode! Great acting. Shows the conflicts going on in DS9 and it shows that it’s not so much a black and white characters show as tng or tos.
'The Wire'! Doesn't need much explaining either I think. Again two actors up against each other. Also pretty early in the series. And of course lots of Garak. I don't think there's anyone who doesn't find him an intriguing character (to say the least).
An episode that might be better to show “the darkness” in DS9 is ‘The Quickening’? No perfect clean ending. No pretty scenery. Rough and painful. But it’ll need a little explanation about the Dominion. And as it’s further up in the series there might also be other spoilers.
Uhm, I can’t think of any others right away. I’m sure that people will have more suggestions!
I want to yell, “FOR CARDASSIA!” so bad but I am never in an appropriate setting to do so.
