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 

Oct 27, 2021

The Tongo Journey continues with Quark’s historic appearance in the first episode of Voyager. Warning to Voyager fans: we love you, but if you have trouble with dissenting opinions about this pilot, please do not listen. Sean Davis joins the regular RTW hosts, Sam, Jack, and Kevin, as well as Ferengiman Kregg, to discuss this disjointed, bizarre, messy pilot episode of Star Trek: Voyager. They salvage what they can from the mess, but mostly spend several hours bemoaning its many flaws. Consider these friendly nerds the caretakers of your heart as you listen to them assert deep discomfort with the way this pilot chooses to build its characters, establish its story, and set a tone. Again, Voyager fans, we still love you, but we do not shy away from expressing our negative viewpoints on this pilot, so please be warned!
