Trek Geeks #207: Paradise


Trapped on a planet where electronics and devices are rendered inoperable, Sisko and O’Brien are taken in by a group of human colonists in the Gamma Quadrant–but what are they doing there?

All is not as it appears as we look at Deep Space Nine’s “Paradise” from Season 2.

We’ll examine the things that work (or don’t) in this episode and how it might be even more relevant today than it was in 1994.

Plus, when we tell you that there’s a lot of news from FanSets, that’s almost not doing it justice. We have a lot to announce and, well…let’s just say you’re going to save some quatloos in the process.

It’s all in this week’s episode of The Flagship, so join us, won’t you?


Every note of music you hear on Trek Geeks is the amazing work of the band Five Year Mission. They’re writing one song for each episode of Star Trek–and we are HUGE fans!

They even have a rather eponymously named podcast here on the Trek Geeks Network! This week, they engage of another installment of “Real or Fake” challenging each other with Star Trek “facts.” Subscribe now on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you download podcasts!

5YM, of course, is every note of music you hear on Rewind, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Go get yourself a copy of all their CDs: Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Spock’s Brain, and The Trouble With Tribbles. It’s easy–head on over to RIGHT NOW and get that physical media in your hands! We just KNOW you’ll become huge fans of the band and their music!
