Rebinging Star Trek DS9: In the Pale Moonlight
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Rebinge Deep Space Nine S6E19: In the Pale Moonlight. In this iconic episode of DS9 Sisko has to come face-to-face with his own conscience as he works with Garak to involve the Romulans in the Dominion War. Strong performances from Stephen McHattie as Romulan Senator Vreenak and Andrew Robinson as the unforgettable Garak. We welcome Attiba Royster back to the pod this week! Attiba has been waiting 3 years for us to get to this episode of DS9! We have a lively discussion about many things including how Picard and Janeway would have behaved in this same situation. See Attiba’s website, Instagram and podcast details below.
In the Pale Moonlight
This episode takes place in flashbacks as Sisko tries to clear his conscience by recounting recent events into a log. We learn he dreads posting war casualty reports and realizes he must find a way to get the Romulans into the war. He dangerously entangles himself in a plan with Garak that he finds soul tarnishing from the drop. But does that stop him from proceeding? It does not.
