Standard Orbit 99: More Perfect / by Trek fm

Deep Space Nine: “Trials and Tribble-ations” with Matthew Rushing.

Anniversaries should be special times, bringing loved ones together no matter how far apart they may be. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew are joined by Matthew Rushing from The Orb to discuss Deep Space Nine's love letter to The Original Series, "Trials and Tribble-ations". We talk about the difficulty of picking the best episode of DS9, which version of the K-7 mission actually happened, and how it works for people who've only seen TOS.
