Trek News & Views 73: Kai-ster by Trek fm

Battle Lines.

Kai Opaka’s stint on DS9 was sadly shorted-lived, paving the way for the beloved Kai Winn to grace our screens. In this episode of Trek News and Views Colin is joined by Michael Clark, Adam Howse, and Thomas Baddeley to discuss the episode that marked Opaka’s farewall, “Battle Lines.” With a scoop of Kira’s temper, a dash of O’Brien’s observant nature, and a sprinkle of Doctor Who—yes, Doctor Who—we take you through one of DS9’s early episodes.
