RBDS9 043 – Crossover (S2E23)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: Crossover
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 2 episode 23: Crossover. In this episode we go where we haven’t gone since the 60s: the mirror universe! That’s right! Up is down, right is left, Spock has a goatee, Kira is running the station while clad in black leather and Sisko appears to be her personal pirate. Yikes!
Kira and Bashir are on a mission to New Bajor (where did this colony come from?) when a wormhole snafu lands them in a universe they don’t recognize. In this universe Kira wears leather and runs the station with a velvet glove over an iron fist. Garak is her second in command and is always trying to find a way to off her. Odo wants everyone to be quiet and do what he says (that’s the same). Quark is…a…good…person? What is happening? As Mirror Kira falls in love with her Alpha Quadrant doppelganger, our original Kira and Bashir fight to get back to the universe they know and love.
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 24 of DS9: The Collaborator.
