Episode 152: Duet

SEASON 1’s BEST EPISODE

It is, perhaps, the best episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s first season and it’s among the best of the entire series.

“Duet” featured the story of a Cardassian war criminal to be put on trial by the Bajorans…or…does it?

We’ll look at the Emmy worthy performances of Nana Visitor as well as guest star Harris Yulin in this compelling drama about hatred, forgiveness, and change.

Plus, we make a big announcement about Northeast Trek Con in Albany, NY on October 26-28! Plus, find out how YOU can win one of two weekend passes to this fantastic convention!

And don’t think we forgot this week’s discount code from FanSets! Oh, it’s all in Episode 152 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast and we hope you’ll give it a listen!

Episode 150: Star Trek’s Finest Hour

THE VISITOR

It is, perhaps, the greatest love story in Star Trek, and the finest hour of the franchise.

“The Visitor” tells the story of Benjamin Sisko’s death and how it impacts his son Jake through the rest of his life. It is a powerful and emotional hour and we discuss it this week as a part of our 25th Anniversary salute to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

We’ll look at why this episode means so much to so many, as well as the amazing performances from Avery Brooks and Tony Todd.

Tomorrow, we’re on our way to Star Trek Las Vegas but today we’re detouring at Sigma Iotia II to collect “A Piece of the Action.”

Plus, we’ll give you all the latest breaking news on STLV. There’s ONE DAY left before the convention kicks off, and new guests are still being added!

Episode 144: Stump the Geek

WELCOME TO THE ROCK!

It is a contest as old as Star Trek itself. OK, well maybe it’s not THAT old.

Once again, Dan Davidson will attempt to tame the behemoth that is Stump the Geek!

Dan will have to answer five questions of varying point values and he can’t use any reference material. No websites. No books. No notes. He has to rely on the information in his walnut sized brain to answer these questions–and they are tougher than EVER!

After that, Dan will face the un-patented Double or Nothing Bonus Round! He’ll wager everything in an attempt to be victorious!

Will he succeed? Check out this week’s episode of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast to find out!
