Awesomeness... *bouncy bouncy bouncy*

Just the show itself, or the "expanded universe" DS9 stuff as well? or would you rather keep that to the TrekLit podcast?

Re: The Orb - a new DS9 podcast

Awesome! Downloaded the MP3 and listened to it this morning on my way to work.

Love the discussion about Roddenberry's vision vs. DS9's stationary crossroads of cultures. I think it's easier to stick to those ideals when you're flying around and you get to leave some of the hostile/immoral cultures behind week to week and fly your starship to the next destination. But when you're stuck in the same place and can't "escape" the variety of culture and morals around you, it's frankly impossible to stay within those ideals on the screen. So your remarks about how DS9 confronts and questions the vision of Gene Roddenberry, I think you really hit the mark. DS9 stays within the Roddenberry universe, but it doesn't run away from any of the cultures that have been established, neither does it embrace every culture. It simply presents a huge variety of cultures in one place living together. To me, that's just pure genius and a refreshing take on the Star Trek universe.

I also enjoyed your bluray remastering discussion. I'm really hoping we get DS9 on bluray with some of those older CGI scenes upgraded. That would be incredible.

And I'm happy to hear someone else who enjoyed the exploration of religion in a way that doesn't set out to say the religion is inherently evil or silly and doesn't ultimately always prove the religion is false, but instead shows the depth of the religion in both good and bad ways and has an honest conversation about it with the characters on the screen, then leaves the question of "what is true" up to the viewer.

This is cool! Can't wait to hear more!

Thank you so much for all your kind words. This is a passion for us and we are so excited to share it with you. DS9 is a layered and complex show, so we have much to talk about!

Re: The Orb - a new DS9 podcast

Great job, although I have to say that I disagree with your assessment of DS9 challenging Roddenberry's philosophy. I think 'challenge' is the wrong word to use to describe what DS9 does; it doesn't really challenge Roddenberry's philosophy so much as examine his philosophy from a slightly different angle. DS9 still has every aspect of TOS and TNG's 'utopian future' present even in its later seasons, but what it does is examine those aspects from an outsider's point of view.

I do think that by doing that examination from the outside, it does show some of it's inherent weaknesses and therefore challenges that philosophy. I would consider it more in the vein of TOS than TNG. These are just some of the reasons we wanted to talk DS9; it is so rich with conversations about so many subjects.

A fun listen, and I agree with most of your choices...although I personally would have given a bit more love to Odo.

and I am totally stealing your The Late Show! With Morn idea for a fanfic.

Re: The Orb - a new DS9 podcast

Listened to episode 3 just now. What a fascinating discussion! I never thought about the parallels between Sisko and...well, I don't want to give it away for those who haven't listened, but it was brilliant! And Matthew, I truly appreciate your comments at the end of the podcast. I submitted a review to iTunes, but it hasn't showed up yet. Please continue this podcast! It's becoming a weekly treat on my lunch break!
