Deep Space 9

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.

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 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!

Episode 125: DS9 25

DS9’s SILVER ANNIVERSARY

On January 3, 1993, Star Trek’s second live-action spin-off series hit the airwaves and featured a completely different setting and mission!

Over the years, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has grown in popularity and is finally getting the love and respect it so richly deserves.

This week, Bill and Dan consider the 25th anniversary of what has become their favorite Star Trek series by examining the pilot episode, “Emissary,” and talking about the characters and relationships in this most different of Star Treks.

Plus, lots of Star Trek news, 2017 by the numbers, and Dan and Bill talk about not winning the Parsec Awards.
