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

As All Hallow’s Eve approaches, the Reopening the Wormhole crew felt a swelling of the Spooky Spirit that could only be expressed by watching this classic(?) somewhat spooky episode of TNG and discussing it for the benefit of you, the listener. The trend continues of discussing a generally maligned episode from the final season of TNG: Sub Rosa. In this steamy episode, Dr. Crusher falls in love with what appears to be a handsome ghost while tending to her recently-deceased grandmother’s affairs. While this episode is often cited as one of the worst Star Trek episodes, there may be some dissenting opinions among the RTW crew. Tune in to find out! And also, to hear the guys discuss some horror movies they’ve been watching recently, some general thoughts on Star Trek: Lower Decks, the validity of Scottish accents, and the sadly infrequent intrusions of eroticism across all Trek shows. So put on your best anaphasic ghost costume and prepare for the creeeeeeepiest, spoooooooookiest RTW episode of the year!
