RBDS9 068 – The Die is Cast (S3E21)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: The Die is Cast
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 3 Episode 21 of Deep Space Nine: The Die is Cast, Part II. Garak finds himself back in the Order, Sisko is planning to rescue Odo and suck-up Snodgrass is up to no good. We’ve got torture, we’ve got sabotage we’ve got surprise changelings and we’ve got mimosas! This episode has a lot to unpack! We wrap up our over-analysis of this two-parter with our guest host and local artist Attiba Royster! Attiba is here as a big DS9 fan and an even bigger Garak fan! And he’s also here to plug his artwork and new podcast Teebs & Kid Phoenix VS. Check it out!
Who Casts the Die??
Last week ended with Garak enthusiastically jumping back into his old life while Odo seemed to be in a perilous situation on Tain’s ship. In this episode, Sisko is on a mission (against Starfleet’s orders) to rescue Odo from Tain’s clutches. The usual crew (plus Snodgrass/Eddington) gas up the Defiant and head into the Gamma Quadrant in search of their friend. Meanwhile Garak slips into some old habits of trying to torture answers out of someone…but this is much more than he bargained for as he watches Odo crumble before his eyes. While he seems so sure of himself at the beginning of the episode when he’s sipping Mimosa’s with his “dad” but by the end, he’s not feeling so great about his place in the Order.
