Episode 25 – The Wounded

Andy and Jessica talk:

  • BDSM helmets and Cardassian makeup
  • Action vs. meetings
  • Clunkiness between O’Brien and Keiko
  • Singing in Star Trek
  • Everyman characters
  • Proving you are right being more important than taking lives
  • Specism. Or xenophobia. Or something.
  • War. It messes soldiers up.
  • Maxwell did it all wrong. Would Picard have done it better?
  • Iconic episodes (and hardcore fans) can be intimidating
  • Deep Space 9 prep

Jessica's Rating

3 of 5 Cardassian Headgear Helmets

Andy’s Suggestions

For background on Deep Space 9:

  • Chain of Command, parts 1 and 2. (Season 6, episode 11) Wherein we believe the Cardassians are building weapons and Picard goes on a special mission and Riker deals with a new captain.
  • Ensign Ro. (Season 5, episode 3) We learn about the Bajorans through, you guessed it, Ensign Ro.

Next Up: Inner Light
