Episode Info

Love suffocates the people in DS9. Watch as Worf, Quark, Grilka, Dax, O’Brien, Kira, and Keiko cross their lucky stars and love stories are told.

This episode, which we initially expected to be a quick one, turned out really long! We discuss the obliviousness of Keiko and Worf, relationship awkwardness, cultural clashes, the Curzon/Jadzia overlap, the Klingon caste system vs the American class system, Klingon love, the best Bashir moment in the series, why Worf’s best attempts at courtship are like a teenager’s attempts, why the Klingons are like Deatheaters, and why didn’t this episode have a conclusion to the main plot.

In the trivia section, we find out that a group of Klingons is called a massacre, and in the bloopers/extras section we have a discussion of Quatloos and Patreon.

Episode Info

The USS Enterprise must contact the civilization on Melkot at all costs! That means that it could mean the death of everyone on board the ship! Kirk ignores the warning bouy and beams down anyway, and the Melkotians have an interesting way of executing the away team.
