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

Trials and Tribble-ations (DS9 S5E06)

February 28, 2018

Gotta go back in time.
No, not to our new Fatty Arbuckle-cast. Back to the Enterprise! The "first" one.
The DS9 crew gets to revisit everyone's favorite era to revist, judging from recent TV and movies. With the magic of developing technology and effects.
Lets get some Discovery thoughts out early.  Except we'll get back to that over and over again.  There's some spoilers if you haven't had some of Star Trek Discovery's obvious surprises spoiled for you.
We reeeally nerd corner the difference between Discovery and Tribble Trouble Fake-Klingons.  
How much do we know about our great grandmothers? Either way, we don’t feel about them the way Bashir does about his.  
Did Emony Dax Harold and Maude McCoy at Ole Miss?
Leaning in to the fan service. Easter Egging vs Embodying.  
Greatest American Hero? Is that our next podcast? [NO]
Who are reboot shows catering to?  
Overall, we enjoyed this "Opposite of the Jake in a hole with a dying man screaming at him" episode.

No voicemails this week, as we really overdid the nerd-cornering in this episode.

We still want to hear from you though! Promise we'll get back to voicemails soon.
