The gang is BACK to talk about MULLIBOK, and how much they love his name and hate everything else about him! But the intricacies of his plight and his dealings with Kira give us the chance to reflect on some difficult discussions. How much power should the state have over the land of its own citizens? What are the ethical duties of a citizen and how much should he have to sacrifice for the good of his fellows? What are the moral and scientific implications of permanently altering an entire ecosystem? How do you deal with fighting the system all of your life to suddenly realizing you’re part of a new one? WHAT is the difference between a leotard and a unitard!? And what in the Prophets’ name does a self-sealing stem bolt DO, and how many gross of them is one wrappage (or ferret) of Yamok sauce worth? How long can Trek Check actually BE? How many times can Kevin scream “woo!” in one episode? What is your favorite consortium? What makes “The Slaver Weapon” the most insane Star Trek episode, and why is it the Kzinti, stasis boxes and police webs? What’s the best Star Wars pairing, and why is it Lando and Luke? We may not have the answers to all the questions, but we do have the answer to the most important question of all: how to craft an AMAZING episode of a DS9 podcast. Also, oh my god guys, this is the big stem bolt episode.
