‘Trek’ fans go into ‘Deep Space Nine’ Monday

"Star Trek" fans tend to have their favorites. And I'm not talking just about characters.

Though I'll admit that I am partial to, among others, Spock, Worf and Data, T'Pol, Seven of Nine and Odo.

That last one is perhaps the least familiar. Played by René Auberjonois, Odo is the Changeling chief of security on "Deep Space Nine," the spin-off series that ran 176 episodes from 1993-1998.

And "Deep Space Nine" is a series that some fans still miss. So much so that it will be the focus of a one-night special event titled "What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine."

The event, which will feature interviews with cast members and some of the show's creators, will screen at 7 p.m. Monday at two area Regal Cinemas theaters: Northtown Mall and Coeur d'Alene's Riverstone Stadium.

It's an evening "Star Trek" fans won't want to miss. Even those silly people who continue to think that TOS is the best that Gene Roddenberry had to offer.
