Welcome to our Rebinge of Star Trek DS9: Emissary

This is our first full episode rebinge of Star Trek DS9! We are starting at the beginning, of course, with the DS9 pilot entitled Emissary! We’re introduced to the space station Deep Space Nine and its main characters of Sisko, Jake, Miles, Dax, Kira, Odo and Quark. We also get a view of DS9 and Kim thinks it’s a bit of a dump. We do spend quite a bit of time cleaning up the place after all! James is (naturally) quite in love with the whole thing from the very beginning.

This episode of DS9 touches on some heavy stuff like grief and PTSD. And it nearly convinces us that time isn’t linear. The show begins to build the foundation of Sisko as a character and gives us glimpses of him at his best and at his worst. We also get a look at the Cardassians and their burdensome costumes and we know pretty quickly we don’t like them.

We roll our sleeves up, just like Miles, for a very deep dive into this super-sized episode of the classic show. Get ready for Cardassians, an angry woman, wormholes and a lot of inappropriate ear touching. So. Much. Ear. Touching. Kim is truly outraged by this development. And oh yeah, James gets goose bumps when we find out who the Emissary is (a thing he already knew, but he is so giddy with excitement to relearn it).

    Nice idea!! I love DS9. Actually my favorite Star Trek show. Even our 16 year old cat is called Jadzia !!
    Is this actually a Rewatch instead of a ReBinge ?? I mean, how often are you going to make a podcast and about how many episodes per podcast. If it is one podcast episode per week about one episode it more like a Rewatch… and I would prefer that. Are you accepting (audio) feedback?? Greetz, Fred from the Netherlands

      Hi Fred,

      This is a detailed rewatch. The plan is one episode at a time per week. We may vary that as we go, but that is the plan. “Rebinge” is just a word we made up to use for the name of the podcast. Marketing!

      We are several episodes ahead and life is quite chaotic so may be difficult to do the feedback loop during each episode. But yes, we intend to accept and read/play feedback maybe in a consolidated “mail bag” episode if we get enough. Since this show does have story arcs that go across episodes and seasons, we are very interested in everyone’s over-analysis of the characters and storylines.
