The Ascent (DS9 S5E09)

March 21, 2018

Odd couplings! Odo and Quark crash land on a dump of a planet and nearly die climbing a mountain.

But first Nog returns! We cover the B plot and ask the question: is Jake Sisko the Rory Gilmore of DS9?  

What is Nog doing back? Does Starfleet send away their unwanted cadets?  

James has some rap references to make and TOS references to point out.  

Odo’s porn habits.  Talk to us about Vulcan Love Slave.  

Love and hate. Quark and Odo style.  

But what if Odo had a different kind of story bout being humanoid?  

Voicemails (39:00):  

Kate on "...Nor battle to the strong."  

Tom from Cleveland has some thoughts on "Let He Who is Without Sin..."

Expect more calls about Risa going forward!
