Power in a Rom!  

Rom starts a union! Lefty Propaganda! 

We spend a bit at the top knocking out Worf's B plot before diving into Marx, Sean O'Brien, and Rom's tranformation from exploited worker to strong union leader. Putting politics aside, this is also a pretty good story about Rom finding himself when not under the shadow of his brother.  The episode that really sets Rom's story in motion, and sets the stage for relationships to come...  

What are some our feelings on unions in the real world? We'll get into some of that and what gets us grabbing for our pitchforks, but mostly this is about Rom.  "Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains."  Oh, and Jeffrey Combs shows up!

And in the feedback segment: 
Franklyn from Jax and just what exactly happened to the robot voice lately?

Music: Billy Bragg, "Power in a Union"

And give us your feedback for future segments on the show!
