About Us

The Orb is a Trek.fm podcast dedicated entirely to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Not an episode review show, The Orb explores specific elements with hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing. We dive deep into this unique chapter in the Star Trek story to examine how it tackles the shades of grey that we find in real life, and how it uses characters over technology to tell timeless stories that connect with the audience.

A Flashpan Love Affair

116: Untitled Bashir

Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges Commentary. Gene Roddenberry’s utopian vision of the future is what attracts many fans to Star Trek. But as Deep Space Nine shows, solving the problems we face is just one part of creating an ideal society. Once you’re there, you must diligently protect what you’ve built or else it will quickly be taken away. And guarding against threats means that, sometimes, unsavory choices must be made and actions taken in the shadows. In this episode of The Orb, hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing bring you a commentary for and discussion of this seventh-season episode that asks what happens to the rule of law when nations go to war, as Bashir is once again tapped by Section 31 for a mission that goes against the tenets of the Federation.
