The Rules of Acquisition: A Star Trek Deep Space Nine Podcast

39. The Maquis

November 7, 2016

A Double sized issue! Federation Terrorists! Instead of one Star Trek episode split into two podcasts, this week we're giving you an extra long podcast with two DS9 episodes crammed in! But hey it's one story. The first 20 minutes or so we cover some backstory and origins back in a few The Next Generation episodes. Where does the term "Maquis" come from? Wade says "metaplot" too many times. Does DS9 make steps here to salvage the "Grand Vision" of Star Trek from Rick Berman's guidance? Some serious fighting words for Jean-Luc Picard! And that's all before we talk about this episode(s) itself; instead of worrying about spoilers from the Maquis pt 2 we cover both at once. If you're miraculously watching DS9 for the first time with us, week by week, go ahead and reward yourself with two episodes. There are no cliffhangers at the end of this podcast!
