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

The Sword of Kahless (DS9 S4E9)

September 4, 2017

Treasure of the Klingon Sierra Madre.
We love Kor!
Do we love this episode as much as we were expecting to? Maybe not, but there is stuff to like [again, Kor].

Worf gets to go on an adventure with a Dahar master, because we all know how big a deal that is, right? Like the stories Kor tells in Quarks, maybe the story doesn't quite match up to how we remember it later.

Klingon lore explored! Kinda.
Will this episode have any relevance when Star Trek Discovery launches? Will we reference it on A Discovery Home Companion?
We get mention of the Hurq and Kahless and Molor, but then it all devolves into people yelling in a cave about petty bs.  Just how valuable is this ancient batleth?  Does it have any special powers?  Who knows?! Well, we do. Listen to the podcast to find out just what we think

In voicemails (42:00) we go back in time to revisit the Visitor again. 
Stefan from the Netherlands talks about soundtracks, and Tim from Northern California defends technobabble.
