RBDS9 107 – Trials and Tribble-ations (S5E6)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: Trials and Tribble-ations
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 5 episode 6 of Rebinge Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations. This is a very famous episode where Sisko and crew accidentally go back in time and end up on an original episode of Star Trek. They mingle with Kirk, Spock and crew and get up close and personal with some tribbles. There’s a lot of nostalgia in this episode, but one thing cannot be ignored is Bashir’s hair. Whyyyy?
Trials and Tribble-ations
The crew retrieves a Bajoran migraine trigger (also known as an Orb of time) from Cardassia and they are flung back in time to meet up with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock. They become background characters in one of the original episodes of the show while they rush to make sure the precious timeline doesn’t get altered. We’ve got A LOT of fan service here with the uniforms, the equipment, the actual characters from TOS and some humor that might have been more appropriate in the 60’s.
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.
