Re: The Orb - a new DS9 podcast

Finally got around to the Defiant episode. Good stuff as always.

My immediate thought, and one I was surprised you didn't bring up, when you asked about episodes that couldn't be done without the Defiant was "Starship Down" from season 4. They certainly couldn't have hoped to stand up to either a gas giant or two Jem'Hadar warships in just a runabout. And as I understand it, the initial concept for the episode was precisely to reveal some of the flaws the ship possessed. It may be well-armed and well-powered, but it is definitely not designed for atmospheric entry, as this episode clearly shows.

While the Defiant's destruction (or perhaps I should say 'death') in "The Changing Face of Evil" was undoubtedly emotional, I feel like the creators missed a chance to really drive the knife even deeper. How great would it have been if here, almost at the end of the series, they had recreated these shots from "Emissary" ? The series starts with him losing the Saratoga to the Borg, and ends with him losing the Defiant to the Dominion. I think that would have been a great way to suggest 'full circle' for Sisko without hammering it home.

And lastly, re the nu-Defiant's registry number. It doesn't bother me, for some of the same reasons Christopher was saying, even though I know it very likely would be one of the things changed if the Blu-ray project ever gets around to DS9 season 7. But I don't want them to change it, because I like the explanation they came up with for it in the books, and I don't want that invalidated. I'm going to quote from one of my own fan-fics to explain it, if I may, but under spoiler.

Re: The Orb - a new DS9 podcast

^I do agree that I really like the book retcon of the Defiant and it's registry number. I fits well.

Re: The Orb - a new DS9 podcast

Great discussion on The Visitor for this week's Orb guys. Really enjoyed your guest, and thank you for giving The Visitor it's own episode. I consider it Star Trek's (As a whole) best episode. It exemplified everything I love about Star Trek, the sci fi concept, the human condition, and furthering the development of Star Trek's best relationship. I still cry when I watch this episode and I always think about my father when it ends. It must of been really hard to watch this episode after your father had passed away. I would probably be balling and couldn't watch it for a long time because it might be just too much.

^ I agree with you, there is hardly a time when I do not tear up at this episode. It is the pinnacle of Star Trek story-telling. I really love having John Tenuto on our shows when we can, he is awesome.

Hey Matt, is there a place on trek.fm that has download links to all of the past podcasts (The Orb)? I've fallen behind and want to catch up! Thanks!

The last episode, on undeveloped and unproduced stories, was excellent. I love how you used them to highlight aspects of DS9 that were realized.

Did you not do one for Jake Sisko? If not, hopefully you include him some how.

That is a good point. Jake is someone we need to talk about.

You can search each episode, but I'll mention an index.

Re: The Orb - a new DS9 podcast

I did a search and while you just had a children on the station episode, it wasn't really about Jake as a whole. There is a lot to talk about with Jake, from his taking an anti-wesley approach and not joining Starfleet, to his writing, to his being part of the underground movement during the Occupation of DS9. Heck, his relationship with Ben could be it's own episode. Glad to know he will get his own episode soon.

I agree, there really is a lot to talk about with Jake, for me he is the first child on a Star Trek series that I thought was more relatable and "normal".
