A Star Trek podcast by two guys who are a bit embarrassed to have a Star Trek podcast. After reviewing all of Star Trek: The Next Generation, we're reviewing Star Trek: Deep Space Nine from beginning to end. Check out The Greatest Discovery, our spinoff about all the new Star Trek series!
When Kira and Garak begin to turn Demar and his men into Maquis, they force Odo’s case of dandruff into the terminal stage. But when Bashir’s efforts to cure Section 31’s biological attack on the Founders comes up short, he and O’Brien will have to resort to their own cloak and dagger methods. Is Section 31 worse than Kevin? Why do we know what Cardassian balls look like? Is that one of Gowron’s men, or his stunt double? It’s the episode that woke up with ‘morning phaser.’
When Colonel Kira, Odo and Garak go behind enemy lines, they’re there to do more than take pictures. But when Dr. Bashir starts experimenting on what Odo left behind, he finds a dark secret with dangerous implications. How much do Klingon warriors know about the K’Tang? Do the Priority One messages work like sandwiches? Is a cut to the wide shot a form of self-care? It’s the episode that won’t do shots with management!
When Kai Winn gets impatient with her new evil overlords, she begins to do research into the Joy of Kosst Amojen. But when the Breen start to heat the war up, Starfleet will have to make a last stand at Wolf 369. How does the math pencil out with Ezri’s heartbreak calculus? Who’s getting on that last shuttle out of ‘Sco? Who is the Bajoran Postmaster General? It’s the episode where we came to start wreck about Star Trek.
When Worf and Ezri Dax are sentenced to death, help comes from an unexpected source. But after Kai Winn starts getting prophet visions, her career aspirations depend on her changing religions. Does anybody win an argument fought with spices? What’s the best way to dispose of a Weyoun? How to you clean a dirty mirror? It’s the episode that goes from one fruit bowl to the next!
When Kai Winn gets called to serve the prophets, the background music is suspiciously ominous. But when the Breen hand off Worf and Ezri to some new captors, the implications for the war give them even more chills. What is Benjamin and Kassidy’s celebrity couple name? How many Dominion attack ships are built to these high standards of accessibility? What would break Ben and Adam in a torture scenario? It’s the episode with the mystery candles.
When Ezri Jakes a runabout for a rogue rescue mission, Worf is more grateful than she expects. But when Captain Sisko becomes preoccupied with Bajoran real estate, his investment appears unable to turn a prophet. When is buying land in a war zone a good idea? Can you just walk into a single warrior’s apartment? Is it a good day to die? It’s the episode that finally gets good at self marketing!
When Bashir is headed to a conference on Romulus, the danger to him is coming from inside the Federation. But when his spy fantasy starts to bleed into reality, he finds that the Tal Shiar is a very complicated adversary. What’s the difference between a goblet and a snifter? How does one enter the Sloan Zone? Is the Romulan Clip Show device the scariest tech in Trek? It’s the episode where we take everything to the dome.
When someone puts a jack in Vic Fontaine’s box, it really grinds his gears. But when the entire senior staff get into role playing games, Captain Sisko must decide which entrance to use if he wants to join them. Who is in charge of sandwich continuity? Can you overcook a dress? Where is Worf? It’s the episode that’s going to have to do some soul searching.
When Odo and Bashir pick up a hitchhiker, the constable finds himself with a golden opportunity to connect with his own species. But when his new buddy makes a bad first impression on the station’s crew, Odo is caught between two worlds yet again. Are there conferences in the Delta Quadrant? Did Quark expose how racist Star Trek is? Is there anything in the entire galaxy that could shake Sisko’s trust in his officers? Its the episode where we find out whether Kira is link-curious.
When Starfleet officers turn up dead on DS9, Captain Sisko is surprised their deaths aren’t war-related. But when Ezri Dax goes for a post-graduate minor, it’ll be a major problem for a killer on the loose. Is anything off-limits in a “if there’s anything I can do” reciprocation? Why don’t weapons designers consider asymmetrical eye-puffiness? Is this what inspired CSI? It’s the episode that never sleeps!
