We’ve reached the end of season 2 and that means the Dominion is a thing! We’re covering the final episode of season 2 and the first two of season three. It’s all about the Dominion and remembering where Odo came from.
Vedek Bareil is running for Kai of Bajor but our favourite villain, Vedek Winn, sows doubt about his suitability and encourages Kira to look into his past. Kira discovers that the man she loves may have been responsible for the death of 43 Bajoran freedom fighters.
We talk about Season 2 episode 18 and 19 “Profit and Loss” and “Blood Oath”. Both episodes are about being a bro: what obligations do you have to other people and how do those obligations act as incentives?
We also have our inaugural segment “Hey Fellas” where we talk to our bros and provide important life advice.
Our good friend Evan, from Kino Lefter, joins us to discuss “Whispers”.

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.
