Reopening the Wormhole is a weekly podcast in which three Deep Space Nine obsessives tackle a randomly selected episode from the series and analyze all the things they love and hate about it. Each week, they'll try to determine the funniest lines out of context, deliver their very official review scores and much more! Make sure to stick around until the end, so you don't miss it when they spin the Dabo wheel to reveal next week's episode! 

Featuring Jack Stovold, Sam Stovold and Kevin Young 

Aug 3, 2020

We wouldn’t let you guys endure an ENTIRE worldwide pandemic without dropping in at some point, would we? Well we almost did…. But we’re finally here, performing for you! Recorded all the way back in the sweet, naive days of April 2020, we are back to update you all on how we’re doing, how the world is doing, share our thoughts on Star Trek: Picard, and then, finally, discuss this plague-themed episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series! It’s Albatross! When Bones is held responsible for a plague that killed off an entire species of weird-looking aliens, it’s up to the Enterprise crew to exonerate him, and it’s up to the RTW crew to talk about how lazy and goofy the animation is in this show. Always a treat, the guys have a blast talking about this beautiful, weird gift from the 70s, while allowing digressions into all sorts of subjects. It’s the banter you know and love, but this time, from a Covid-aware perspective! So put on your PPE and get ready to get VIRAL with this deep, deep dive into a silly old cartoon!
