Season 3

Original Airdates: 1994-1995

The third season of Deep Space Nine follows a similar tone and storytelling as the second. Opening with The Dominion’s bold introduction – carried over from the second season finale, the season gradually introduces this new threat and confirmation of Odo’s origins.

The season witnesses a return to the mirror universe, Bareil’s death, Quark’s Klingon marriage, and Odo’s first confessed love of Kira. The arrival of The Defiant presents new opportunities off the station, and Season 3 sees major developments for Garak, including confirmation of his ominous pre-tailor life.
