  • November 19: “The Maquis, Part 1”
  • November 21: “The Maquis, Part 2”
  • November 26: “The Wire”
  • November 28: No episode post, since it’s Thanksgiving in the U.S., and following “The Wire” I’m definitely gonna need to bury my Garak/Bashir feels in stuffing and pumpkin pie. (Also, to a lesser extent, after the Sisko/Dukat road trip fic of the previous week’s “The Maquis” two-parter.)

September 2019 schedule

So, thus far, the two-episodes-a-week thing seems to be going OK! If anyone has strong feelings about why one a week was better, feel free to chime in, but for the moment, I’m gonna keep up with it.

  • September 3: “Dramatis Personae”
  • September 5: “Duet”
  • September 10: “In the Hands of the Prophets” (y’all, we’re almost done with the first season, this is blowing my mind)
  • September 12: “Homecoming”
  • September 17: “The Circle”
  • September 19: “The Siege”
  • September 24: “Invasive Procedures”
  • September 26: “Cardassians”

August schedule

As noted, I’m gonna try a thing where I do two episodes a week! Let’s see if it works. With that in mind, here is the planned August schedule:

  • August 6: “Move Along Home”
  • August 8: “The Nagus”
  • August 13: “Vortex”
  • August 15: “Battle Lines”
  • August 20: “The Storyteller”
  • August 22: “Progress”
  • August 27: “If Wishes Were Horses”
  • August 29: “The Forsaken”

July schedule

I have pre-written this post on the assumption that this entire endeavor will not have petered out by July. Is this hubris? Possibly. Nonetheless, here is the July schedule!

  • July 2: “Babel”
  • July 9: “Captive Pursuit”
  • July 16: “Q-Less”
  • July 23: “Dax”
  • July 30: “The Passenger”

rewatch prewatch

So, a few days after I decided that substack wouldn’t work for this and paid for web hosting for this thing, they launched a community discussion feature, OF COURSE. I’m probably going to stick with the blog format for the time being on the grounds of “eh, I’ve got it, might as well use it” but if anyone has strong feelings either way, let me know.

Anyway, this weekend, I ended up rewatching some Next Gen as well, including, most relevant to this endeavor, “Ensign Ro”, so if anyone wants to rewatch that in the next few days and then discuss on this post, feel free! Otherwise, here is the viewing schedule for June.

June schedule

  • June 11: “Emissary”, both parts
  • June 18: “Past Prologue”
  • June 25: “A Man Alone”
