RBDS9 142 – Far Beyond the Stars (S6E13)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: Far Beyond the Stars
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Rebinge Deep Space Nine S6E13: Far Beyond the Stars. In this episode, Sisko slips into a vision from the prophets (maybe???) where all of our usual characters are turned into human form in the 1950s! Odo, Worf and Quark are all shockingly makeup free. Brock Peters is back as Grandpa Joe (and also a preacher) and Penny Johnson Jerald is back as Kasidy. We’ve also got Marc Alaimo, Jeffrey Combs and JG Hertzler out of makeup! And as if that’s not enough guest stars, we also have Attiba Royster back with us on the pod. Attiba is an artist and podcaster! You can find his artwork at attibaroyster.com and you can find his podcast here.
Far Beyond the Stars
Sisko has an intense vision where he is a writer in 1950s New York fighting against racism. Benny just wants to write a science fiction story about a place called Deep Space Nine but his publisher and editor aren’t too keen on stories having people of color in powerful positions. Racism isn’t the only “ism” we have to put up with in the 50s, let’s throw in some sexism too! Everyone looks stunning in this intense, meaningful episode that weaves the past into the future.
