What happens when William Riker drops by to check out Sisko’s new toy? We don’t know, because that didn’t happen. But when his transporter-created twin Tom drops by, that toy goes missing.

In this episode of The Orb, hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing bring you a commentary for the third-season episode “Defiant,” which provides a sequel or sorts for TNG’s “Second Chances.” Airing just 18 months after we first met Thomas Riker and just three days after Generations premiered in theaters, this DS9 episode effectively pulled the wool over the eyes of fans in first run. Join us with or without your TV as we discuss Riker’s motives, Kira’s needs, and Dukat’s self-absorption.
