O'brien Must Suffer! Does this one hit too close to home in 2016? We find a lot to talk about in this Kafka-esque Cardassian episode. You want to hear debates about absurdism vs expressionism, right? But also: More James' nipple corner! [Hint: It's O'brien again] Is this at all similar to Picard's Cardassian torture episode from Star Trek: The Next Generation, homoerotically? [Hint: Well, that kinda depends on you, man] Is O'Brien a Maquis agent? [Hint: Of course not] Are he and Keiko going to have a picnic? [Hint: Good chance, but not on screen] Is this a better episode than The Collaborator? [Hint: Yes] Do the Maquis have a "Batman Guy?" These DS9 questions answered, and a lot more Deep Space Nine issues discussed! Plus at least one question regarding Manos, the Hands of Fate!
