Eddington Arc

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!
