Season 3, Episode 6: “Tacking Into the Wind” (DS9) with Keith DeCandido

Get ready to risk it all as we come face to face with “Tacking Into the Wind!”

Author, editor, podcaster, and musician Keith DeCandido comes aboard this week to discuss an episode of Deep Space Nine that represents a culmination of years of patient and skillful storytelling in the Star Trek universe. Kira and crew stage a daring heist of Founder technology, while Worf resolves to restore the honor of the Klingon Empire, even if he has to spill blood in the process!

Along the way, Keith and I cover the awesomeness that is Kira Nerys, DS9 passing the Bechdel Test with flying colors, telling war stories in Roddenberry’s future, the tragedy of Damar, and the Ezri we deserve but not the one we need right now. Plus, we talk about the Theiss Titillation Theory, Worf as the Lee Atwater of Klingon politics, getting Tarantino in your Trek, Discovery and Klingon boobage, Kal reps for Team Gowron, and Keith doesn’t apologize for killing Mr. Homn!
