Things Past (DS9 S5E08)

March 14, 2018

Terok Nor? James finds it a Terok Bore.  

On the way back from an occupation convention Odo, Sisko, Dax, and Garak all get Quantum Leaped back 9 years to before Odo was chief of security, and Kurtwood Smith held sway.  Things start getting all wibbly wobbledy with the timeline and reality and just what exactly is going on here?  

We're divided on the quality of this one, even if we aver that season 5 is still going strong overall.  

Hold on after the rewatch meter IMDB ratings, where we once again ask the question, "How would we fix this?"  

(47:10) We have the return of your voicemails!  

These are all on Trials and Tribble-ations, and for the sensitive among you, there may have some Discovery talk:

Kristin on Discovery and trials.  
We talk about our formative days watching TAS, the Monkees and Lancelot Link, secret chimp.  Love of the lore and execution.  
Greg from NC has the nerd corner solution to our McCoy scene discussion.  
BuckyWTGoodHair on Disco’s appeal to nostalgia.  
Make the show that you want to see.  

And we end with American Gods, and the kind of thing you may have come to expect from us.
