We’re dipping our toes into one of our favorite story arcs this week: the season 8 arc! And in this episode, we’re right in the middle of all the insanity: two races who have hardly interacted are becoming allies to face the incoming threat of the Terran Empire; meanwhile, Jake & Nog get into some shenanigans that nearly cost Bashir his marriage. The RTW crew has a ball talking about this fantastic episode, as well as its super-sized Trek Check. It’s a couple hours of exuberant joy, woe, gushing, analyzing, and GARLIC. SO MUCH GARLIC. So grab your nearest Maquis servant, get a spoonful of yamek sauce, and get ready to pick which Sisko is your favorite! Toss in the first appearance of a tellarite on DS9, and this is one episode you’ll definitely want to ally yourself with.
