Deep Space Pride #039: The Underappreciated Episodes of DS9 – Playing God

Maybe the goal of becoming a joined Trill should simply be to become less whiny of a person.

It’s the end of June, which means the end of Pride Month! We wrap up our Pride Prompts with a final question – what should Star Trek do next in terms of LGBTQ+ representation? Both Mike and Johnson think the franchise needs to push the envelope forward, but in different ways.

As for this week’s underappreciated episode, we chat about “Playing God” in Season 2 of DS9. Mike is less than enthusiastic about this episode; Johnson thinks that though this episode has a couple of redeeming qualities, it also falls flat. It’s then onto off topic, where Mike is watching a ton of Star Wars, and Johnson is celebrating the 15-year anniversary of The Devil Wears Prada.

We would love to hear from you! You can reach us by emailing – drop us a note, comment, or question. Just don’t be mean – though if you are, we might ignore you!
