Episode 152: Duet

SEASON 1’s BEST EPISODE

It is, perhaps, the best episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s first season and it’s among the best of the entire series.

“Duet” featured the story of a Cardassian war criminal to be put on trial by the Bajorans…or…does it?

We’ll look at the Emmy worthy performances of Nana Visitor as well as guest star Harris Yulin in this compelling drama about hatred, forgiveness, and change.

Plus, we make a big announcement about Northeast Trek Con in Albany, NY on October 26-28! Plus, find out how YOU can win one of two weekend passes to this fantastic convention!

And don’t think we forgot this week’s discount code from FanSets! Oh, it’s all in Episode 152 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast and we hope you’ll give it a listen!

Episode 150: Star Trek’s Finest Hour

THE VISITOR

It is, perhaps, the greatest love story in Star Trek, and the finest hour of the franchise.

“The Visitor” tells the story of Benjamin Sisko’s death and how it impacts his son Jake through the rest of his life. It is a powerful and emotional hour and we discuss it this week as a part of our 25th Anniversary salute to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

We’ll look at why this episode means so much to so many, as well as the amazing performances from Avery Brooks and Tony Todd.

Plus, news and this week’s FanSets special offer exclusively for Trek Geeks listeners in the 150th episode of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!

Episode 146: A Piece of the Action

A ROYAL FIZZBIN

It’s one of the all-time great comedic episodes of Star Trek and the perfect send off in to Convention Week!

Tomorrow, we’re on our way to Star Trek Las Vegas but today we’re detouring at Sigma Iotia II to collect “A Piece of the Action.”

One of the things that Star Trek has always done well is injecting levity after a few serious episodes and this is perhaps the best of them. We’ll look at what makes this episode so much fun, as well as some of our favorite moments.

Plus, we’ll give you all the latest breaking news on STLV. There’s ONE DAY left before the convention kicks off, and new guests are still being added!

And don’t forget about the amazing FanGeeks Party 2018 hosted by us on the one and only Las Vegas Strip! Our good friend, Lew Halboth from FanSets is going to stop by to tell you about all of the amazing pins that people will win at this year’s party!

Episode 141: Odo & Quark

A COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP

Of all the relationships in Star Trek, perhaps none is as layered and complex as the one between Odo and Quark.

On one side, you have the lawful Odo who is responsible for ensuring the safety of one of the Alpha Quadrant’s most strategic locations. On the other, you have Ferengi bar owner Quark (he’s *not* a barkeep) who seems to turn every situation into gray area with his dealings.

It’s an unlikely friendship and we’ll dive in on it this week!

Plus news, and an announcement from Dan and Bill on their new venture in this week’s episode of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!

Episode 138: Balance of Terror

AN ALL-TIME CLASSIC

This week, we take a look at one of the best episodes of Star Trek. Seriously, this is one you show someone who has never seen Star Trek before–it’s that good. It’s one we’ve wanted to talk about for a while and the time has finally come!

That episode is “Balance of Terror,” from season one of The Original Series. We’ll examine why this episode is so memorable–and how it made an impression on us at a young age.

Plus, lots of news including brand new Star Trek swag, news of a brand new Discovery comic from IDW, a special milestone for the Trek Geeks Podcast, and we’ll announce the winners of two copies of Drastic Measures, signed by author Dayton Ward himself!

Episode 137: Blaze of Glory

THE FINAL ROUND

The first two rounds of this epic struggle have been amazing and, this week on Your Independent Star Trek Podcast, we consider the final round of Sisko vs. Eddington with “Blaze of Glory” from Season 5 of Deep Space Nine!

It’s been a contest of wills with each move being incredibly calculated by each man. Now. Benjamin Sisko must rely on the help of Maquis operative (and Starfleet prisoner) Michael Eddington to prevent an attack on Cardassia.

Can the attack be stopped in time before it starts a full scale war? Find out on this week’s episode of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!

Episode 136: For the Uniform

AN INTENSE MIDDLE ACT

Last week, we began our look at what we refer to as “The Eddington Arc” in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine–the final three episodes with Starfleet officer turned Maquis terrorist, Michael Eddington. In part 1, we looked at his betrayal of Starfleet and Benjamin Sisko in “For the Cause,” and, this week, we look at the second act of this trilogy in the fifth season episode, “For the Uniform.”

We’ll examine the pursuit of Michael Eddington and the obsession of Benjamin Sisko and the lengths both men are willing to go.

It’s the middle act of a great Deep Space Nine mini-arc this week on Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!
