Just before it all hit the fan, station Deep Space 9 played host to an auction that gave birth to a wild chase for a rare baseball card. It's a unique story within Star Trek that flips the usual format on its head by relegating the serious elements to the B-story whilst focusing primarily on what many might consider the frivilous—a vintage mint-condition 1951 Willie Mays rookie baseball card.

In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing bring you a commentary for "In the Cards" as they explore the dynamic between Jake and Nog, the rare glimpse of respect for Sisko shown by Kai Winn, the critical sixth-season story elements that are being set up in the background, and speculate on just what happens when you climb inside Dr. Elias Giger's cellular regeneration and entertainment chamber.
