RBDS9 002 – Past Prologue (S1E2)
Welcome to our Rebinge of Star Trek DS9: Past Prologue
This is our second full episode on our Rebinge DS9 journey! Someone from Kira’s past has appeared seeking amnesty on DS9 in Past Prologue. But as usual, he’s up to no good — no one just drops by this place for a simple visit. Why would they?
We continue to touch on some heavy themes! Here Kira is struggling with her loyalties to the freedom fighting cause of her past and the politics of her present. She tries to explain the complications away with Sisko, but he’s having none of it. He doesn’t want to be harboring terrorists and he wants Kira to pick a side. Meanwhile, the Cardassians are sticking their rubbery noses into everything again.
Oh yeah, and we’ve got some Klingons on the station ready to cause trouble. The Duras sisters have arrived and are making deals on all sides. Odo wants to throw them in the brig, of course, because he is his usual cantankerous self.
This is a Kira episode
We get a lot of Kira in episode 2. She waffles between being the angry woman we met in episode 1 and the good soldier she wants to be for her people. She’s finding this a difficult line to walk. But one thing for sure, she is killing it with that new haircut. We dig it.
What’s this rebinge thing?
It’s a re-watch of a thing you’ve already seen but love to watch and talk about. We go deep with every episode, walking you through every scene and analyzing all of the characters and story lines. Listen to our intro episode if you want to know a little more about us. And kick off the whole thing with our rebinge of the pilot episode Emissary.
We dig into Season 1 Episode 3 of DS9: A Man Alone.
