Emissaries of Profits – A Study of Trill

Today we’re experimenting with moving away from a strict episode by episode review and instead are looking at two second season episodes that focus on the fascinating lives of Trill. Invasive Procedure and Playing God provide insight into Trill society and the massive inequality that exists there.

We talk about the Trill quest to gain a symbiont and a huge leg up on all of your Trill compatriots. Gaining a symbiont is enough to consume an entire life and even enough to kill for.
