And Porthos saved the ship! – Pets in Star Trek

Hello! Welcome to another episode of 10Backward. This episode, we are discussing the pets we see in Star Trek. What does it say about a character to keep a pet? Should pets go on deep space missions? Whatever happened to that spider O’Brien had? These important questions are all raised and pondered!

One Little Ship

The 10Backward crew, (with the oddest feeling that something is missing) gather to discuss what could be considered DS9’s most daring efforts, the little ship… that took a little trip.

Happy Birthday DS9 – Past Tense

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.

Constantly.

Banging.

On.

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!

Happy Birthday DS9 – Emissary

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!

War! Part 4 – DS9 and the Dominion War

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!
