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

The Reckoning (DS9 S6E21)

December 26, 2018

Reckoning with a Bajor episode that goes full Ghostbusters.

We get on a Kim Kattrell tangent. Hugh Crawford does the math.  But wait, it’ll pay off later in the podcast.

Instead of our regular polar opinionsA decidely mixed bag of an episode.

Odo reduced to “the good boyfriend.”
Is the Nurse Ratched cadence infectious to other actors?
Hey, remember those Pah Wraiths?

Without Mad Men would we have a John Slattery Admiral?  Seems like we’d rather talk things other than this episode.

Why doesn’t Sisko get more political power or utility out of being the emissary?  Is Sisko unrealistically weak amongst the Bajorans?

It's a decidedly mixed bag of an episode. Or is it not? Let us know what you think!
