It’s been a while since we’ve been given a “Let’s Torture O’Brien” episode, and boy howdy does “Tribunal” deliver. Then, in “The Jem’Hadar”, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine blows up its own premise. Plus! Miles and Keiko sure do love each other, don’t they?
I like the point about how Cardassian trials aren’t trials in the sense of a crucible that burns away irrelevancies to lead to the truth, but rather demonstrations of the state’s power, of what the state already knows to be true.
Ah yes, the Domino-ion. The domino club that runs dominoes throughout the Gamma Quadrant. Clearly, Richard is about to discover that the Founders … are the WADI!
Right, the Ferengi don’t have slavery. Except for their women. 😐
There really do seem to be two versions of Ferengi society, and they’re very much at cross-purposes.
Prophets, how do you manage to not spoil things, Eric?
I am really looking forward to next week…
I think I did spoil something (relatively minor) in a episode yet to be released. Curious to see if any of our listeners catch it.
The Pensky File-
I just wanted to clarify that I think the Jem’Hadar are threats because of their willingness to die to accomplish their goals, not because the ships seem much more powerful.
The characters in the show are dumb founded that the Jem’Hadar would make a suicide run against a retreating enemy. I might not be remembering this correctly, but I don’t think the show ever says that Jem’Hadar ships are over powered?
On to S3!
