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

What do you do when you just can’t let go of talking about Deep Space Nine, even though you’ve talked about every episode for hours? You talk about the show as a whole, and you talk about yourself talking about it, that’s what! It’s part 1 of our Big, Bad, Bodacious Retrospective! We’re covering several categories related to both Deep Space Nine and Reopening the Wormhole, reading some listener email with some great suggestions for retrospective topics, and overall, having an absolute blast talking about DS9, podcasting, and all the fun we’ve had over the years. You’re probably asking yourself: how is this just part 1? It’s three hours! Well… you are underestimating our penchant for navel-gazing and talking Trek. We do so much of both of these things in this episode, and we know our listeners wouldn’t have it any other way. Here are the time stamps for all the subjects discussed in part one:
