096 - The Maquis, Part II (2x21)

9/19/2017
More
Welcome to the Deep Space Wine Epilogue! The gang managed to record for episodes in a row, but they couldn’t quite finish all of their wine, so they’re back to tackle the last two bottles and rap about The Maquis Part II! That means they’ll be diving back into some Maquis levels of sadness, but also reaching Jurassic Park levels of happiness as they wax poetic about gentle smackdowns, gross looking kanar and a Xepolite Hetman. It’s a trip through the wormhole you surely won’t want to...

095 - Shattered Mirror (4x20)

Deep Space Wine continues as our heroes board the train to their fourth episode in a day, and their 7th & 8th bottles of wine for the day. This time, they’re watching the season 4 mirror episode, Shattered Mirror. As the hosts reflect on mirror Jennifer Sisko’s relationship with real Jake Sisko, as well as Benjamin’s indifference to the mirror universe, and the continuing wonder of Mirror Kira, they also reveal truths about their feelings on the Jimmy Stewart classic, Harvey, the...

094 - Paradise (2x15)

9/4/2017
More
As we head into the dark heart of Deep Space Wine, the duonetic field and the shocking amount of wine the gang has drunk so far begin to take their toll and they begin to lose sight of the forest for the trees. In other words, they’re in PARADISE. Although they struggle to remember the difference between famous whistled songs from movie classics about prisoners, ANY topic is fair game, from how far from modern conveniences would you be able to live to Babylon 5 actors to the psychology of...

093 - The Collaborator (2x24)

8/29/2017
More
The road to hell may be paved with good intentions, but the road to amazing Deep Space Nine podcast episodes is paved with WINE. And so, episode two of Deep Space Wine Part II commences and we crack open another couple bottles to discuss The Collaborator, a heavy tale of Bajoran religion and politics and choosings. Along the way, we gush about Winn, fawn over Bareil (and his hot bod) and debate stupid common phrases. Add in a dash of Star Trek: Discovery speculation and you got yourselves...

092 - A Simple Investigation (5x17)

8/22/2017

Deep Space Wine Part II begins! Once again, we’ve assembled an assortment of different wines that we’ll be making our way through as we record episode after episode in one day and it all starts here! We’re kicking things off with A Simple Investigation, a tale of intrigue, romance, murder and changeling sex (always a favorite subject of ours). Join us as we try to wrap our minds around the labyrinthine web of lies that Arissa finds herself in and crack open our first bottles of Grape Juice...

[BONUS] Star Trek: Nemesis (Audio Commentary)

8/18/2017
More
Join the RTW crew for a grand and successful experiment! As faithful listeners probably know, we don’t think too highly of 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis. But even though we’re mainly a DS9 podcast, we’ve committed ourselves to checking EVERY Trek, and Nemesis is no exception, so we thought we’d get it over with in the fastest, laziest way possible: an audio commentary! In a RTW rarity, Sam, Kevin, and Jack are all in the same room, drinking a case of Tecate and talking over a movie they hate,...

091 - Past Tense, Part II (3x12) (with Bryan Stovold)

8/15/2017
More
Leap back to the past (future?) with us as returning guest Bryan Stovold helps us to navigate the murky waters of life in a sanctuary zone in 2024 San Francisco. In addition to airing out our individual grievances about time travel and hearing Sam’s pretty convincing theory about how it might just all make sense, the gang talks about all your favorite topics, like ghosts, gimmes, dims, the DMV, the net, 1995 Sandra Bullock vehicle “The Net”, the East Coast/West Coast rap feud, Bashir’s...

090 - Valiant (6x22)

8/8/2017
More
Being an effective starship crew takes more than just dogged determination and wit; it also takes years of experience. Being a great podcast crew, however, is much easier, as the RTW crew proves in this week's coverage of Valiant! While the DS9 episode is a harrowing tragedy of overconfidence and misguided loyalty, Sam, Jack, and Kevin still manage to find time to discuss their feelings on Chris Pine, the Mod Squad, classic Russian literature, and their ideal crews, as selected from all...

089 - Waltz (6x11)

8/2/2017
More
One of the best and heaviest Deep Space Nine episodes calls for a serious discussion, and the RTW crew delivers... somewhat. For the most part, it's a deep, lengthy, philosophical discussion about the many layered onion that is Dukat, the difficulty of confronting your fears, and the nature of true evil. But it wouldn't be RTW without discussions about the latest Marvel movies, Street Fighter, and loads of Voyager bashing. The conversation flows wildly as the liquor flows even more wildly,...

088 - Bar Association (4x15) (with Kregg Castillo)

7/25/2017
More
Join the RTW gang as they begin their journey into the second half of the podcast! And who better to accompany them than Ferengi /Space Merchant expert and Dabo Boy Kregg Castillo? This week they’re talking about Bar Association (Bar Associate, Netflix?), and as usual they’ve got a lot to talk about, things like labor unions, what the hell is going on with money in the Star Trek universe, Magikoopa vs. VertebrateDick, O’Brien’s ancestors, Crewman Daniels’ acting career (much more...

CHECKPOINT! To celebrate Reopening the Wormhole hitting it’s halfway point, we decided to cover Deep Space Nine at its exact midpoint! That means, of course, that we’re talking about d’jarras, Akorem, Bajoran lightships and Sisko’s clock! In other words, ACCESSION. But we’re also pulling out all the stops to celebrate RTW’s journey so far, including a look back at some of our personal favorite moments and episodes and a host of other fun surprises and familiar faces that we wouldn’t dream...

086 - Apocalypse Rising (5x01) (with Derek Lavender)

7/11/2017

Glory to you... AND YOUR HOUSE. Boy, Gowron sure is a wild-eyed maniac, ain't he? Of course he is, but you love him anyway, just like you love listening to three wild-eyed maniacs talk about the season 5 premiere, Apocalypse Rising. RTW fan Derek Lavender joins us to talk about Odo, O'Brien, and Sisko playing Klingon dress-up, with varying levels of success. We're also diving into things like marsh melons (they ARE real!), tumult behind the scenes of the Han Solo movie, and one DS9 actor's...

085 - The Way of the Warrior (4x01) (with Jason Butze)

HAPPY WORF OF JULY! To honor this most special of holidays, we’re tackling the double-sized season four premiere, Way of the Warrior! That means, of course, that we’re talking about WOOOORF! And a host of other Klingons, like Martok(?), Gowron and ...Drex! Plus, Garak, Dukat, root beer and who knows what else!? It’s an exciting episode, is what I’m getting at. Not only that, but we’ve got a bona fide Star Trek expert (and mainstay of the Reopening the Wormhole Mailbag!) joining us to...

[BONUS] Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

7/1/2017
More
Just in time for your weekend, it’s a special Reopening the Wormhole Trek Check Bonus Bonanza!! For “god” knows what reason, the boys have decided to talk about one of the biggest turds of the Star Trek film series, 1989’s Star Trek V: The Final Frontier! The gang dishes on what makes this film fail for them and the behind the scenes malarkey that photon torpedoed poor William Shatner’s vision, while making some unflattering comparisons to The Phantom Menace. But we’re also determined to...

084 - Things Past (5x08)

6/28/2017
More
Coming at you from nine years in the future, the minds of Sam, Kevin, and Jack are placed into the bodies of their 2017 selves in order to discuss this dark season 5 episode. Even with time travel jet lag, blood loss from an unfortunate injury Sam suffers early on, and Jack/Sisko's apparent identity crisis, the gang manages to have a great discussion about Odo dragging his friends into a scenario from his previous life on Terok Nor, along with some other things (for real, though, Back to...

083 - Behind The Lines (6x04)

6/20/2017
More
Go behind the lines with us back to the good ol’ days when Deep Space Nine was occupied by the Dominion, Odo was casually abandoning the life and friendships he had worked so hard to build, Rom was being arrested for subterfuge, Kira and Jake were desperately trying to keep a resistance cell going, and Damar was beginning to develop a drinking problem! Simpler times to be sure. To celebrate, the gang is downing some kanar and reflecting on how much they (heart) NY, the particulars of The...

082 - Extreme Measures (7x23) (with Daniel Carrigan and Breanne Petre)

6/13/2017
More
This week, we’re taking another trip into the Sloan Bone Zone (Act 1) to further discuss the possible homosexual overtones between Sloan and Bashir’s relationship that we first explored back in our coverage of Inter Arma Latin Whatever! We may not have Brandon to guide us this time, but we’re instead joined by returning champion Daniel Carrigan and first time guest Breanne Petre! Together, we figure out what McDonald’s product a dying and gross Odo (Grodo) most closely resembles, we...

081 - Q-Less (1x06) (with Barm)

6/6/2017
More
Question: what queer quality quietly qualifies this quotable quaff of a DS9 episode to quench your thirst for quirky TNG-style humor? Why, it's our old ominpotent buddy Q, of quorse! This week he comes aboard the station to wreak havoc and be a general thorn in Sisko's side, while Picard's former flame, Vash (NOT the Stampede), meets a kindred spirit in Quark (no relation to Q). RTW hosts are joined once again by the quintessential Tyler Neufeld (aka Barm) for a discussion that devolves...

5/30/2017

Join the RTW crew on their presumably last comprehensible podcast as they struggle to find a cure to the devastating aphasia virus they picked up slamming drinks at Quark’s that will soon turn their every thought into an incomprehensible word salad. On the way they’ll again talk Schwarzenegger, their favorite mash-ups, turnips, flight hogs, gumball tithing, rods, ham flippers. Entering bell weather, fingers revelation goop build scimitar shingle feather. Flout, hither mingled cake slams...

079 - Body Parts (4x24) (with Kregg Castillo)

5/23/2017

This week, we go where no Reopeners of the Wormhole have gone before, by doing our second Ferengi episode in a row! That means, of course, that our Space Merchant Expert Kregg Castillo is back to join us once again to talk about BODY PARTS! Specifically, vacuum-dessicated Ferengi body parts and human/Bajoran wombs. Also, we’re talking about the magic that is Brunt at his most villainous, the pregnancy that spawned this whole crazy baby-surrogate storyline and, for some reason, grocery...
