As we reach our 100th episode, we mark the occasion with a quiet moment from Deep Space Nine—one that put our characters under pressure, tested their resolve, and highlighted the rift between the Federation and the Dominion. And like this installment of The Orb, it’s also the centennial moment for DS9 (depending on how you count your episodes).

Join hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing as they discuss how this unassuming story plays a pivotal role later on in the Dominion War, the uniqueness of Vorta and Kilana’s miscalculated gameplan for dealing with Sisko, whether or not the Brotherhood of the Engineers storyline works, and more. Plus, we look back at our journey to 100, our love of Deep Space Nine, and ahead to the best that’s yet to come.
