Hillary and Nic join the DS9 crew in a legal argument for Dax's very life! We look at the evidence of what makes a person a person, cross examine the selection of secondary characters in this episode, and hold Julian in contempt. Not of court, but just in general. Dudes got boundary issues something awful. What's the verdict? You'll have to listen to find out!


Episode of the week: "Dax"

Q snaps his way onto Deep Space Nine in the episode Q-Less, and Hillary and Nic counter with their discussion about the most memorable banker in all of Star Trek, Q's abusive relationship with Vash, Julian's smooth moves and some how we end up talking about nipples. I blame Q. He's a tricksy one he is.

In this episode Hillary and Nic discuss the episode Captive Pursuit, where we meet a brand new alien that can be, and frequently is summed up in one word: Tosk. We talk about the amazing makeup, the difficulty of forming a friendship between two very different cultures, and wonder just how O'Brien isn't in a cell by the end of his escapades in this.

As an aphasia virus runs rampant on Deep Space Now, Hillary and Nic run rampant all over this episode! We discuss Quark and Odo's epic frenemy status, the misery of keeping a space station that seems to hate you maintained, quarantines, bioterrorism and lots of other upbeat topics that terrify us to our very cores! Oh, and for the love of all that is holy can we get the chief to fix the printer? It keeps screaming bloody murder.

Hillary and Nic try to digest a very stuffed episode with A Man Alone. We've got Julian's unsettling flirtations, Starfleet's unsettling bioethics, Keiko settling in by starting a school, a Odo possibly violently settling a score with an old enemy, a lynch mob unwilling to settle for anything less than Odo's death, and the weirdest bedbugs in all the Alpha quadrant which thanks to the power of friendship are now settling in on the station. Whew! I'm exhausted just typing all that, but boy oh boy did we have a lot to say about it all.

Hillary and Nic dig into a very Bajoran episode of Deep Space Nine. We talk about the loss of identity in rebel factions when the rebellion is over, Kira's difficult choice when faced with an old ally who has become a Bajor First activist, and of course the introduction of Garak and what may be the best pickup line ever.

Hillary and Nic close out their discussion of the climactic second part of the pilot! We talk about the importance of perception in this episode, how Star Trek treats deities, try to wrap our head around non-linear time and spend a larger than expected amount of the running time talking like pirates.


P.S. Yes, at the end we do list the wrong episode as being next in line. We know, we caught it after recording the outro. Don't worry, Past Prologue is coming at ya next Wednesday!

Hillary and Nic dive into the very first part of the very first episode of the classic Sci-Fi show Star Trek: Deep Space Nine! What wonders and weirdness await in Emissary: Part 1? We talk about the introductions of the characters, the set up of the series premise, and possibly the strangest beach scene ever filmed.
