So, 10Backward host Rick (Everson) flipping loves Past Tense, the DS9 2-parter that depicts the Bell Riots of the 21st Century. He’s constantly banging on about social commentary at it’s best in Trek and what it said when the episode aired and how even more relevant it is today.
But what of the rest of the 10Backward gang? Do they agree? Do they tolerate Rick’s passion? Or do they cut him down with well reasoned arguments? Or scatological humour?
Find out by listening to our analysis of Past Tense!
25 years ago, Emissary, the pilot for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine aired. Did we realise back then it was going to lead into a crazy seven year story? How the characters were going to grow and develop? We’d see love, loss, war and baseball? This year, we at 10Backward are going to pull out our full DS9 love and do several episodes about this groundbreaking show, starting appropriately enough, with this one!
Apologies for the sound issues in the episode, we have identified the problem and it’ll be sorted for the next podcast, which hopefully will be with you before 2032!
Welcome to the first episode of the Trek Book Club podcast! Rob and Rick will discuss August 17’s selected book, Avatar Book One from the DS9 relaunch. As well as their own thoughts, they’ll be covering points from the Twitter discussion from the club.
Please note that there may be some feed confusion as we’ve never tried two before. The Book Club feed should be http://lowerdecksradio.co.uk/index.php/category/trekbookclub/feed/ so please try that if you’re having trouble.
This long War! Podcasting epic finally reaches it’s conclusion as we conclude our look at Deep Space 9 and the Dominion War. Rick, Will and Richard are all on the casualty lists as they are talked out after all this! Let’s hope they can declare victory and get over to Quarks for some rootbeer!
10Backward return to our examination of War in Star Trek. After looking over TOS, TNG, VOY and ENT, we head to the Bajor sector to see how War is portrayed on Deep Space 9.
