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!

Synopsis: Bashir’s anxieties about his impending thirtieth birthday take on new significance when he’s telepathically attacked by an intruder.

3.17: “Visionary”

Synopsis: A Romulan delegation arrives on the station demanding promised intelligence on the Dominion, and O’Brien begins jumping forward a few hours in time. During one such jump, he witnesses the destruction of the station, and must figure out how to prevent it — even as the phenomenon threatens to kill him.

March 2020 schedule

We’re back! And I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve missed you, and Station On Fire Trash Can, a great deal. Things are still fairly busy for me on a personal front, both with ongoing stuff at my current job, and because, depending on how a job interview this week goes I may be moving 700 miles away later this month, so I’m tentatively going with one post a week for most of the month, but may bump it back up to two later.

  • March 11: “Visionary”
  • March 18: “Distant Voices”
  • March 25: “Through the Looking Glass”
