RBDS9 004 – Babel (S1E4)
Welcome to our Rebinge of Star Trek DS9: Babel
In the fourth episode on our Rebinge DS9 journey we explore the episode entitled Babel! After a tough day fixing things, Miles starts acting funny — and not in a good way. He starts sweating and babbling nonsense at Kira and she quickly gets him to Bashir. Turns out he’s been infected with a virus and it doesn’t take long for it to hit others on the station. The team races against time to solve the mystery of where the virus came from and how to stop it before it overwhelms the station.
Quarantine Protocols are Suspect
Sisko calls for a quarantine on the station, but partying continues at Quarks. On the other hand there are ships that want to get away from DS9 as fast as possible but they are being asked to shelter in place. Why does this sound familiar?
Meanwhile, Kira is on the case. She tracks down the cause of the virus and it looks like a device left behind by the Cardassians. But as more and more people become infected, can she find a cure in time?
