RBDS9 058 – Past Tense, Part I (S3E11)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: Past Tense, Part I
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 3 Episode 11 of Deep Space Nine: Past Tense, Part I. In this episode, we get some time travel! W00t! Why do we love time travel so much in Star Trek? Cuz it’s cool and it’s fun and it’s ridiculous. I mean come on, the team accidentally gets beamed into 2024! It’s ridiculous! But it’s also great! (Hey good news everyone, the pandemic appears to be over by then, so only a few more years!!)
Past Tense, Part I
Sisko, Bashir and Dax are somehow beamed into the past and get separated. Sisko and Bashir are ushered into a “sanctuary district” because they don’t have identification and are unemployed. The sanctuary district is a bit like a gigantic DMV where people are being processed slowly and then released into the district. This results in a district full of people who have little or no hope for their futures. Basically there are no jobs and the community is also a dumping ground for people with untreated mental health issues. It’s quite a mess! At the same time, Dax finds her way into the richer part of town and she’s buying new clothes and going to parties!
Meanwhile, up on the Defiant (in the present/future), Miles, Kira and Odo are frantically trying to locate their teammates.
What’s this rebinge thing?
