Spotlight Contest: Haiku Well Do You Know DS9?

by Charlie Plaine, Chairman

5th May 2008

How well do you know the episodes of Deep Space Nine? Could you name an episode from just a simple episode description? How about from a... poetic twist on an episode description?

This fun contest is designed to see if you can decipher which episode each of the following haiku is describing. In total, there are seven haiku here - if you can determine the correct episode for each one, you will have a chance to claim your very own Tragic Turn foil!

Here are the haiku. (Note: #5 might be considered PG, but it's nothing worse than the episode itself.)

Episode #1
The new Commander
Did not want to keep his job.
The Prophets changed him.

Episode #2
Quark killed a Klingon.
Turned out to be pretty brave,
For a Ferengi.

Episode #3
In the Holosuite,
All my friends are here with me.
If I don’t kill them.

Episode #4
Squish, squish, squish, squish, squish.
Watch me as I change my shape.
Found guilty, I can’t.

Episode #5
Quark tries to get some.
Worf lusts after her as well.
Dax is horny too.

Episode #6
If you are like me,
We have too much of this set.
Oh yeah, a war starts.

Episode #7
Bashir and the Chief,
Inside a renegade’s mind,
Last chance saves Odo.

To enter, you'll need to send your guesses for each episode title in an email to contests@trekcc.org, along with your real name and your email address.

Your entry might look like this:

Your entries must be received at contests@trekcc.org before MIDNIGHT (server time) on SATURDAY, MAY 10TH. Please, only one entry per person. The first participant to send a complete list of correct episode titles will receive a Tragic Turn foil; a random participant will receive one as well.

Best of luck!
