On January 3, 1993, a new chapter in Star Trek storytelling began. And although we didn’t know it at the time, this new series set on space station Deep Space 9 would become the richest chapter in Gene Roddenberry’s vision.

In this episode of The Orb, hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing get together for a casual chat about the series they love so much, why it has come to be their favorite Star Trek, how it lifted the veneer and opened up the full world of Gene’s vision, and why it has stood the test of time so well.
