I'm almost certain there's a scene when the two ships are looking for each other, there's a clip that shows the Enterprise cross far over the top of the Reliant.

The Khitomer battle is riddled in such examples also, remember a photon torpedo blasting straight through the Enterprise saucer section from directly underneath?

The Valiant & Dominion battleship had a reference also, the Captain actually mentioned the z-axis.

If anyone plays homeworld 1/2 it provides a pretty decent Z axis system for attacking ships and there's a star trek mod for it.

But in ST z-axis ship to ship fighting is pretty poor. I think theres a couple of defiant battles but in general its not done. I think because the ships take up so much screen space they dont bother.

Also if you take a look at Stargate and the ep where the Ori ships come through
Around the 58 second mark, it looks odd tbh.

I think that's due to formation and size of the Ori ships, looks a little better before and after.

It was Odo and Quark that saved DS9, IMHO... Or maybe René and Armin

Odo / Quark, and Bashir / O'Brien were some of the best things about DS9.

Oh, and Bashir / Garak. And Dukat / Garak. And Worf / Martok. And Odo / Weyoun.

And Quark / Rom

I'm on season 4 of DS9 but I'm watching another show at the same time so it's stretched out.

How did you get on with "The Visitor"? I got so choked up watching it was almost unbearable.

I've seen it a few times, not one of my favorite episodes but it's one that reminds me of the Outer Limits, a story that can stand out on its own even if DS9 wasn't around.

I have BSG on DVD, must get around to watching it. I watched the pilot and it sort of put me to sleep a bit. I think I might just get stuck into Season 1.

my sister is on the show, what gets my goat is how they can lose or not establish communications, come on guys why are we still having problems with technology so far advanced,

then there is the telly porter, I cant get a lock on captain, jordi just farted and its interfering with the signal,

also why do they use our history when setting up scenes in the hologram suite, oh and you can not get harmed in here, ooh shiit, I mean that's what they told me, sorry.
