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

For The Cause (DS9 S4E22)

December 6, 2017

Badlands and Bad Men. Or are they really bad? Who's bad? You know who's bad. Relationships are strained and even broken when secrets get out.

But first! Wade has a nontraditional perspective on the B plot with Garak and Ziyal. 

Sisko and Kasidy hit some bumps in their relationship, even as Jake learns about biscotti.

The morallity and merit of the Maquis are discussed ad nauseum. Are the maquis and the federation a bad breakup? Who’s the good guy here?  Does anyone make a good case for Federation separatists in this episode?  What does Voyager fail to do with them?

We go long in this one so no voicemails this week, but that doesn't mean we don't want to hear from you!
