Those are good episodes...

I'm not sure about the Admiral. I think he had the best intentions, and if he'd been able to pull off the coup, the Federation would have been much better prepared for war with the Dominion...

However, I think that Leyton's actions would have resulted in civil war or at least a divided Federation. Either way, the Federation would have been weakened and unprepared for the Dominion. That's the most likely outcome, and exactly what the changeling agents wanted to achieve.

My favorite episode is "In the Pale Moonlight," another very challenging, thought provoking story.

This is why Ben Sisko will always be my favorite Star Trek Captain.

Federation Civil War it would be something, you right the Dominion hoped for such outcome, Leyton fraction vs Federation President loyalist Fraction, Only question with whom the Maquis would ailed with? :-)
I would want to read fan-fiction novel, about alternate history where Admiral Leyton don't back down, and federation would fall into abyss of civil war.

PS the actor who play Layton has bad luck for role that he play star trek. He played Layton in DS 9 and V'Las, both are arrogant character, and fascists :D

Even though this is my favourite Trek because of probably the epic Dominian story arc my favourite episode might probably be an episode that has nothing to do with that at all and that's Trials and Tribble-lations.

My favorite episode of the 1st season is "Duet."

What you call genocide, I call a day's work.

A frank exchange of views indeed...

I fail to remember the episode's name, but it was the one where Kardasian agent provocateur Garrack, suffering from overwhelming pain, tells Bashir different stories about why he was left on DS9 after the Kardasian withdraw. When afterward Bashir asks him which story was true, Garrack answers that all of them were. At the very least, he reveals he's much more than a simple tailor.

There is one with a character called Ibudan which is one of the funniest names I have ever heard. "killing your clone is still murder", Ibudan is told as he is taken into custody.

My two top DS9 episodes, "Statistical Probabilities" and "Trials and Tribbliations" already mentioned. And I was just thinking about the latter earlier today when observing my cat.

Given the rich complexity of the seven years of DS9, I wondered if I should categorize my favorites under general themes, such as favorite Dominion arc episode, favorite Ferengi episode, favorite Mirror Universe episode, etc.

I recently started rewatching DS9 from "Emissary" and now am more motivated to go through it again so I can sort this all out.

"Chrysalis" and "Statistical probabilities"

- these episodes helped me come to terms with my autism as an adult, it helped me come to terms with my childhood.

Civil Defense: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Civil_D ... episode%29

Especially funny this is when Dukat tries to go back to his ship and give everyone time to come to terms with his manipulation game, only to find out that a Cardassian higher up the chain of command has already prepared for the instance of Dukat trying to leave while the station is in lockdown due to a Bajoran uprising.
