RBDS9 053 – The Abandoned (S3E6)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: The Abandoned
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 3 Episode 6 of Deep Space Nine: The Abandoned. In this episode, Quark accidentally buys a baby (seems right) and Jake has an exceedingly booby older girlfriend. The fast-growing baby is the main story here, but we spend some time over-analyzing (ranting??) about Jake’s much older girlfriend and whether or not Ferengi are taking advantage of poor jobless children from Bajor. Yeah, we go there…but really, tune in for Kim ranting about terrible people trying to explain women to her.
Quark buys the salvage of a ship from the Gamma Quadrant and when he surveys his purchase, he’s shocked to find a baby hidden away in the wreckage. Sisko has a brief happy moment of cooing at a baby, but that baby very quickly grows into a Jem’Hadar teenager. Against everyone’s advice, Odo steps in to try and help the child understand the value of free will. What could go wrong?
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.
Join us for the next episode S3E7: Civil Defense.
