It’s widely held as the darkest moment of not only Deep Space Nine but all of Star Trek. Captain Sisko’s decision to trick the Romulans into entering the Dominion War rocked the foundation of Roddenberry’s world and the principles of the Federation. Despite this—or perhaps because of it—“In the Pale Moonlight” is one of Star Trek’s finest pieces of storytelling.

In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing take you through the episode with a full commentary. Because we felt that, maybe if we just laid it all out in our logs, it would finally make sense.
