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 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 103: J.G. Hertzler

CHANCELLOR OF THE HIGH COUNCIL

When we started the Trek Geeks Podcast two years ago, we compiled a list of names–those people we’d love to talk to on the show someday.

At the top of Dan’s list was J.G. Hertzler–the actor who played General/Chancellor Martok in 25 episodes Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and appeared as two other characters on that series.

We are honored and humbled to welcome J.G. to the podcast this week!

We’ll talk to J.G. about his time on the show and ask why he thinks that DS9 is enjoying such a resurgence now. We’ll also talk about what it’s like to work with Avery Brooks and also about his “The Left Hand of Destiny” series of novels featuring Martok!

We’ll also find out who the better rapper is: J.G. or actor Robert O’Reilly who played Gowron!

Plus–we’ll have an update on our Cosplay for Good campaign to raise money for the Nevada SPCA and we’ll announce the winners of our Star Trek Cats giveaway!

It’s all in Episode 103 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast—Q’APLA!!

Episode 78: Recasting DS9

NEW FACES FOR BELOVED CHARACTERS

Recasting DS9This past Spring, we asked the members of our Camp Khitomer group on Facebook to send us their questions for an “Ask Us Anything” episode!

Their questions were fantastic, but there was one we thought could truly be its own episode–we were asked to pick a series and recast the characters with different actors.

Challenge accepted!

This week we’ll recast our favorite series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, with an all new set of actors–and some of the selections may just surprise you!

Plus, we’ll update you on the latest Blu-Ray release in the Star Trek universe and discuss a wonderful essay that highlighted our Trek50 episode!

We hope you’ll join us for an entertaining discussion this week on the Trek Geeks Podcast!

Episode 10: Nana Visitor

THE WILL OF THE PROPHETS

This week on the Trek Geeks Podcast, we’re joined by the gracious and delightful Nana Visitor from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine!

Nana played one of Star Trek’s strongest and memorable characters–Colonel Kira Nerys of the Bajoran Militia, but is also known for her work on such television shows as Dark Angel, Wildfire, and even Seth MacFarlane’s long-running Family Guy.

She joins Bill and Dan for a great discussion on creating the Kira character, women and the Star Trek Universe, how DS9 has held up over time, how a new generation of fans is discovering the series, and even a little Friday the 13th talk!

PROGRAM NOTE:

The Trek Geeks Podcast will return in two weeks with episode 11. Bill thinks he deserves a vacation. For what, we’re not exactly sure, but he’s taking one, anyway.  Must be nice, huh?
