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

53. Defiant

February 27, 2017

By Riker’s beard! Another guy from Star Trek: The Next Generation on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine! Jonathan Frakes shows up. And talks up Kira. Do Kira and Riker have more chemistry than Kira and robo-Bareil? But then the Defiant gets stolen, the fake mutton chops come off, and the story really gets rolling. The meat of this episode? Some real Dukat and Sisko business, getting into some Cardassian conflicts with Hugh’s favorite subject, the Maquis. We get into some Angry Nerd Corner-ing over, among other things: What we know about one certain “tough little ship” Transporter clones Did some thing happen between Will Riker and O’Brien? And oh yeah: Wade ate a rat penis one time.
