RBDS9 042 – The Wire (S2E22)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: The Wire
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 2 episode 22: The Wire. No guest stars on the podcast this week, just the usual folks. We do a deep dive into the episode The Wire where we find Garak has been living with an implant in his skull and it is now causing him severe distress. We learn a lot about Garak and Cardassians here…or do we? We certainly hear a number of stories and maybe one of them is true.
When Bashir discovers the implanted device (the wire?) in Garak’s head, he does everything to try and help him. Garak is trying to keep secrets and ends up telling Bashir at least 3 different versions of the same story which is confusing. Bashir doesn’t care, he just wants to help his patient (and his maybe friend?) so he takes a risk by tracking down the head of the Obsidian Order (who sound like some very scary people). Will he find help in time?
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.
We dive into Season 2 Episode 23 of DS9: Crossover.
