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

Accession (DS9 S4E17)

November 1, 2017

Bajoran religion, everyone’s favorite type of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode.

BUT… is this the most consequential episode yet for the arc of the series?

Faith (or lack thereof) is discussed!  

Fletch's boss comes out of the the wormhole and does Sisko a favor by taking over as the emissary.  Kira is surprisingly ok and doesn't question this, til not-quite-Borat starts bringing back the Bajoran caste system and tells her to quit her job and start making birds.  This regression into alt-right ideology sets Sisko down a path where he has to confront what it means to be a religious figure, and even buy into it a little bit more.
