RBDS9 040 – The Maquis, Part 1 (S2E20)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: The Maquis, Part 1
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 2 episode 20: The Maquis, Part 1. In this episode we have a special guest star! Attiba Royster, local artist (local to us) and big Deep Space Nine fan, drops by the podcast! He’s here to discuss the two-episode arc introducing The Maquis. In Part 1, we meet Cal Hudson (played by Bernie Casey), an old friend of Sisko’s who appears a bit disillusioned with the Cardassian treaty and not loving his new job in the DMZ. We learn some really important things in this episode – like opposites do not attract and there is not a thin line between love and hate (at least that’s what Kim tells us, so it must be true).
This episode starts with somebody blowing up a Cardassian ship and ends with a kidnapping of Gul Dukat (honestly, they can keep him). But mostly the episode is full of a lot of shenanigans in the demilitarized zone which makes nobody happy. The Cardassians aren’t happy to have Federation citizens in their territory and the Federation citizens aren’t happy that they’re getting slowly picked off one by one. Sisko’s friend Cal isn’t happy with his new crappy job and Sisko isn’t happy that he has to spend more time with Gul Dukat. So overall, this treaty is not going well.
