RBDS9 012 – Battle Lines (S1E12)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: Battle Lines
Welcome to S1E12 where Kai Opaka arrives! The Kai guilts Sisko into taking her on a ride through the wormhole and no one is quite expecting what they find on the other side! Battle Lines! Spoiler alert, we really liked this episode and we dig deep into the development of Major Kira here. Please join us for this fun ride!
Kai Opaka arrives at DS9 unannounced. She gets her promised tour of the station before getting a ride through the wormhole. She’s muttering something about a prophecy, but nobody quite knows what she means (and for some reason, nobody asks!). When the shuttle is shot down by a satellite over a moon, our crew is introduced to some very unfriendly folks who are stuck in an endless and bloody war.
This episode gives more depth to Kira and also shows us more of the elusive Kai Opaka. There is some beautiful acting here, but also some weak plot points (again)! We hope you enjoy this episode of the podcast as much as we enjoyed making it. Battle Lines is a good one!
