st-ds9Lisa So’on Mann hosts the 2-episode pilot of Star Trek: Deep Space 9, “Emissary.” The film features a commander, Benjamin Sisko, sent to a war-torn space station three years after the violent death of his wife. The station is near a wormhole leading to another quadrant of the galaxy, holy to the people of the planet it orbits, Bajor. The Bajorans believe they are guided by “prophets” and their spiritual leader believes Sisko may be their emissary. These aliens, who exist in a nonlinear fashion, contact Sisko and take him on a journey through his life, showing him how he is unable to move on from his wife’s death.

Dharma teachings include karma, the mind getting stuck in one place, letting go, and discovering new spiritual potential.
