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

Hard Time (DS9 S4E19)

November 15, 2017

Obrien. Must. Suffer. The Hardest.  

Star Trek tackled some serious issues, in an era before we were all forced to learn the term PTSD.

But, first don’t you want to hear us argue the difference between implanted memories and a simulation on a scifi future show?  Have you missed Nerd Corner?

It’s hard to make jokes about such a serious well done episode!
How bout them healthcare plans in the future?
Jake helps O’Brien with his tools.

Did everyone screw up by not sending Miles back to Ireland?

And what of Roddenberry’s vision? Does this preserve Star Trek’s “evolved humanity” or perfect it?

As we get older… do we have less desire to rewatch upsetting media?

Skipping out on voicemails this week. This episode drained us.

But still, give us a call! 917 408 3898

And support us on patreon, where there might be a few extra minutes of us arguing over simulations vs implants, but also so much more
