3.19: “Through the Looking Glass”
I haven’t forgotten about this blog!!! In fact I have had this post half-finished for a few weeks now, and have been plagued by guilt for not getting to it, but have also been in the middle of starting a new job and moving halfway across the country. And also there’s, you know, the world. Twice a week may still be a little ambitious, but I’m going to try it!
Also, Liz and Anika over at Antimatter Pod were gracious enough to have me on again, this time to discuss villains in Star Trek. I’ll bet you can guess which specific villain I was there to discuss!
Anyway. On to the episode!

O’Brien believes that Sisko may be able to persuade her to change sides — because she’s the mirror version of his late wife, Jennifer.
3.18: “Distant Voices”
Hello! I hope you are all safe and healthy, and that you’re taking care of yourselves and each other. Things are a bit hectic for me, in part because, you know, *gestures vaguely at the world* but also because I am about to start a new job and will be moving nearly a thousand miles this weekend! So thank you for bearing with me while I attempt to get back into normal operating procedure around here. Be safe, don’t hoard food or toilet paper, and wash your hands.
With all of that out of the way, let’s get on with this week’s episode!
