RBDS9 078 – Hippocratic Oath (S4E3)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: Hippocratic Oath
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to season 4, episode 3: Hippocratic Oath. After the cry fest that was The Visitor, we get a respite with a back-to-basics Star Trek episode. We’ve got Julian and Miles on an away mission together where they get into mortal danger with some Jem’Hadar soldiers. And we’ve got a normal B-story going on back at the station with Worf and Odo. So regardless of how much you cried last week, everything is back to normal this week! We get into a discussion about Starfleet and the Federation in dealings with other races that are essentially slaves and we also talk a lot about leadership and management in this episode!
When Miles and Julian crash land on a planet in the Gamma Quadrant, they get into some deep trouble with a group of Jem’Hadar soldiers. One of them is convinced there is a way to get un-hooked from the enzyme they need to live and he wants Julian to help. Miles isn’t so keen on doing anything for these brutal dudes. When Miles acts on his own, disobeying Julian’s orders we are in for an awkward ride home.
Meanwhile, back on the station, Worf isn’t impressed with Odo’s lack of interest in Quark’s illegal dealings. Worf, we see you and we understand!
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.
