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

The new chapter of the RTW story begins, with our first Tongo Bonus episode! That’s right, our journey through every non-DS9 Ferengi episode in Trek begins here, coincidentally, with the first Ferengi episode! Did we say “first”? We meant WORST! Well actually we meant both. But there’s a lot of mud to sling at this episode, and the RTW crew and Ferengi Expert Kregg are ready to call this episode out for its inanity. We’re not in Ferenginar anymore, dear listeners, but we’re excited to be bringing more Trek Talk to all of you, and we’re thrilled to have Kregg alongside us. And without Rappin’ Jake Sisko, will there be a replacement rapper? Tune in to find out! And stick around for another exciting mailbag from a first-timer who’s working through DS9 AND RTW in DS9 episode order. It is, as Spock would say, fascinating.
