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.

Journey with us to the Bajor Sector in Episode 125 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!
