RBDS9 014 – Progress (S1E14)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: Progress
Welcome to S1E14 Progress. This episode is a beautifully nuanced story of Major Kira’s struggle between her past, her present and the future of Bajor. We get another high powered guest star in Brian Kieth. And because we love a good B-story, Jake and Nog are up to some shenanigans back on the station.
Brian Keith plays a Bajoran deeply entrenched in his quiet life on a Bajoran moon. The trouble is, he’s in the way of Progress. The Bajoran provisional government (drink??) is tapping the moon’s core for energy resources and it needs to relocate everyone living there. Kira struggles with recognizing this as helping Bajor and not wanting to support forced relocation of anyone who survived a labor camp.
Meanwhile, back on the station, Jake and Nog are wheeling and dealing. They’ve come into some Cardassian yamok sauce that they (well mostly Nog) intend to turn into latinum. Shenanigans follow.
