    DS9 s2e26 “The Jem'Hadar”

    DS9 s2e26 “The Jem'Hadar”

    It's a high octane thrill-ride of pew-pews! (eventually, and briefly.) Until then, it's a strangely slow farce on a camping trip. Is it fun or dull? Andy and Matt can't agree. And if you're a hailbag skip-per, check out the beginning for A BIG TNC NEWSFLASH!

    [Episode discussion begins around 57:00ish]

    • 2 hr 8 min
    DS9 s2e25 “Tribunal”

    DS9 s2e25 “Tribunal”

    DS9 s2e25 “Tribunal” Matt obsesses over an apparent time traveler from the 1970s, and Andy enjoys a cavalcade of funny characters in this exploration of the Cardassian legal system.  Remember folks, winning isn’t everything!  As this podcast proves.

    DS9 s2e24 “The Collaborator”

    DS9 s2e24 “The Collaborator”

    Is this episode a nuanced tale of political intrigue or b-b-b-boring?  Or both?  Andy sings the praises of Louise Fletcher’s villain who makes Nurse Ratched seem palatable, the boys debate Vedek Bareil’s pecs.

    DS9 s2e23 “Crossover” - a semi funny Star Trek podcast currently about TV's Deep Space Nine

    DS9 s2e23 “Crossover” - a semi funny Star Trek podcast currently about TV's Deep Space Nine

    It's a trip back to Mirror Town, and one of our hosts loves it and one hates it! But will they be replaced by a reverse version of themselves by the end? Also: what does it take to kill a goo man?

    [Episode discussion begins 1:05ish]

    • 2 hr 35 min
    DS9 s2e22 “The Wire”

    DS9 s2e22 “The Wire”

    A tour de force from recurring character Garak in bizarrely play-like long scenes hooks Andy and Matt, as Mr. Fasc-tastic (Mr. Fascistastic? Mr. Fascistic?) Odo checks the cameras he's hidden all around DS9.

    [Episode discussion begins around  58:00, takes a Letterman detour, then actually begins at 1:06ish]

    • 2 hr 12 min
    DS9 s2e21 “The Maquis, Part II”

    DS9 s2e21 “The Maquis, Part II”

    The second part of this Maquis de Sade-centric two-parter, one of the few Treks to follow the possible Best of Both Worlds/Godfather II template of 2 being better than 1.  To Andy's shock, Odo show the Mr. Fantastic powers he always assumed he was hiding, and Dukat starts to live up to his (future) legend.  

    [Episode discussion begins around 1:00ish]

The only Star Trek talk destination you need

This podcast series is a throwback to devil-may-care podcasts of the late aughts. Pre-over-produced, over-commercialed, over-structured, over-celebritied podcasts. Just a couple of chums, doing a deep dive on a beloved topic, for about two hours with almost no consideration for staying on topic. It’s glorious… and I genuinely now know more about Volvo auto repair than I ever thought I would. But best of all, the Star Trek content is outstanding as Matt walks Andy through episode after episode of Star Trek’s mostly best (and sometimes not) work. Love the DS9 episodes they’re doing now.

Best Star Trek pod in this universe!

Looking for the perfect Star Trek pod? Look no further than this entertaining podcast! Covering TNG and now DS9. “Secunda!!!” Will be coming out of your mouth with small or big victories in life. Hearing “WEEEEEEEE” from Matt will make you smile. Understanding what a Trill is, will be discussed in greater depth than you thought possible. I love James Bonding with Matt and Matt. It’s what got me here, and I couldn’t be happier. They also cover the other Star Trek shows like Voyager and enterprise and more .

Better than you expect

These guys are always hilarious. They give you want you want and so much more. If you have the time, they will kill it. Be kind and be well
