Episode 135: For the Cause

THE EDDINGTON ARC

This week on Trek Geeks, we begin a three-part arc examining “The Eddington Arc,” and the conflict between Captain Benjamin Sisko and Maquis operative Michael Eddington!

We thought we knew who he was, and then Michael Eddington reveals his true colors in this pivotal episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.  We’ll examine this “Round 1” in the Sisko vs. Eddington struggle and discuss the two different betrayals Sisko experiences in this episode.

Plus, Star Trek Discovery news, the cancellation of Engage: The Official Star Trek Podcast, and a brand new sponsor all in this week’s episode of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!

Episode 129: The Conscience of the King

THE PLAY’S THE THING

4,000 people.

That’s how many were executed at the directive of Governor Kodos of the failed Tarsus IV after a fungus destroyed most of the colony’s food supply leaving 8,000 colonists to starve to death. Kodos ordered the deaths of the 4,000 so the other 4,000 colonists might live.

Among those survivors was James T. Kirk and, now, he’s left with the task of figuring out if actor Anton Karidian is really Kodos the Executioner.

This week, we’ll discuss this classic TOS episode and why it was one of Bill’s favorites, even as a child. We’ll talk about our favorite moments from this episode and examine the central question, “What, if anything, could Captain Kirk have done differently?

Plus, news on a brand new Star Trek merchandise portal on the world’s biggest retailer, how William Shatner thinks he could be incorporated into Star Trek again, and listener voice mails in this episode of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!

Episode 128: Dear Doctor

BEFORE THE PRIME DIRECTIVE

This week, we examine an episode that foreshadows Starfleet’s Prime Directive!

“Dear Doctor” was the thirteenth episode of Enterprise (later to be renamed Star Trek: Enterprise) and it presented an interesting dilemma for the Chief Medical Officer and Captain of the NX-01.

It’s an episode that presents our characters with changing the evolution of an entire race and the potential ramifications.  This is a fantastic episode of Enterprise and we’ll tell you why we love it–and why it took us almost 17 years to rewatch it.

Plus, news about a brand new Star Trek game, STLV guest updates, and rumors on when Star Trek: Discovery might go before the cameras to start shooting their second season on Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!

Episode 127: Harry Kim Must Suffer

STILL AN ENSIGN

Man, has this guy been through a lot.

Ensign Harry Kim of the Starship Voyager. Operations Officer of the only Starfleet vessel in the Delta Quadrant. In seven years, he has seen a lot of things happen.

The problem is, they’ve happened to him. Harry could be the most abused character in the history of Star Trek and, this week, Dan and Bill will take a look at the oft-tortured and long-suffering ensign. They’ll discuss some of the more creative ways he was tortured and consider why he wasn’t promoted once by Captain Janeway.

Plus, there’s news on a new book on TOS, award nominations for Star Trek: Discovery, a brand-new podcast from Dr. Trek, and we’ll fondly remember DeForest Kelley who would have been 98 years old this week.
