Bashir Central!

LISTENERS! The Dal'Rok approaches! And it is a furious and terrible sight to behold! But lo, with the power of our unity, we can defeat it! Like Varis was able to vanquish her problem with the help of Jake & Nog, so can we defeat the Dal'Rok with our Spelling Bees, Game of Thrones references, and Bib Fortuna tangents. Let the unity between Reopening the Wormhole & the Faithful Listeners lend us the strength we need to drive the Dal'Rok back to its home!

Are you ready to hear the gang once again plumb the depths of Dukat’s twisted psyche? Well, too bad, because that’s what we’ve got for you this week! They’ll also be discussing whether or not Kira and Sisko would be interchangeable in this episode, this episode compared to Alien: Covenant, the psychology of cults, what kind of Patreon bonus episodes might be in store for you (hint: incredibly stupid ones), declarations of sweetness, random Geoff thoughts, religious conversion, the “melt...

101 - Tacking Into the Wind (7x22)

... BOO! Did we scare you? Well not as much as this spooktacular Halloween episode of Reopening the Wormhole, where the guys are talking about the eeeeeeriest of subjects, like Kira & Damar leading a resistance, and Worf challenging Gowron's place on the high council. Along the way, more ghoulish topics will be covered, such as Lemony Snicket, and the hypothetical Deep Space Nine show it inspired, and the difference between spoilers and conjecture. It's a spooky hoot and a spooky half!...

100 - Emissary (1x01) (with Eliza Rickman)

The big moment is here! RTW is turning 100 today! And what better way to celebrate our 100th birthday than by watching the very first episode of Deep Space Nine? The talented and delightful singer/songwriter Eliza Rickman joins us for a beginner's perspective on the epic Trek origin story, and we have LOTS to say about Sisko meeting the prophets, the quality of characterization in the first episode, and the show's origin as a space western...? Check out Eliza Rickman's crowd-funded video...

Did you know there’s another Star Trek show besides Deep Space Nine!? A BRAND NEW ONE! That’s right, the RTW crew is taking time out of their busy schedule of not making their 100th episode to give you the scoop on the exciting world of Star Trek: Discovery! Not only that, but they’ve got a bunch to say about The Orville as well. Join them as they talk about the Klingon Kontroversy, Michael Burnham, sick Lorca Burns, the joys of Lt. Saru, spore drives, Michelle Yeoh, the new intro, and all...

Join us for the “Episode Before the 100th Episode” Special (Special Edition), in which we’re rejoined by returning champions Daniel Carrigan and Geoff Clarke to discuss melons, eyeballs, Picard’s Konquest and occasionally Deep Space Nine! We’ll be getting into our feelings on whether it makes sense for Dukat and Kira to team up, what a grounding presence Bashir is, which of the three Ziyals is the best and more. Plus, Sam spills the beans on George R. R. Martin’s insane new TV show that’s...

098 - Heart of Stone (3x14)

10/3/2017
More
The gang decides to spend their 98th episode talking about Batman Forever, and also the DS9 episode Heart of Stone! Seriously though, there’s a little something for everyone here, in that we’re having yet ANOTHER discussion about what changelings can and can’t do, everyone’s love of crystals, Hearthstone, founder poop, Benjamin Linus and his problem, or the actual two big important DS9 things that happen in this episode! Now that’s a cake you can put a cherry on top of. You better believe...

That's right, the RTW boys are taking a look at the series finale of Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as the second and third-to-last episodes. It's a super-sized discussion that dives deep into every aspect of All Good Things..., lavishing warranted praise, and poking small holes in its logic. TNG fans won't want to...

097 - Sanctuary (2x10) (with Barm)

9/27/2017
More
When an unfamiliar people fleeing their war torn home make their way through the wormhole looking for sanctuary and are met with resistance due to their strange language, appearance and beliefs, it’s hard not to draw certain parallels with the world today and to reflect on some of the important issues facing us now. What is it that can drive men to hate others simply for their differences? How much of our home are we willing and able to sacrifice for the betterment of others that are...

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...

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

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

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

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...
