Jake's got a new friend. She's a little older, a bit mysterious, and she feeds off creative psychic energy. But just think of the new book he'll get out of the deal! Meanwhile, Lwaxana drops by the station to reveal that she's pregnant and running from her husband. Perhaps Odo can help her out when we put The Muse into the Mission Log.

Jadzia is not herself. She is a combination of herself, the Dax symbiont, and all of the hosts who have hosted Dax before. Now, it’s time for Jadzia to meet the previous hosts, which means Sisko and company won’t be themselves. They’re giving the past hosts control of their bodies. Also, Nog is having trouble getting into Starfleet - for no apparent reason. It’s brother versus brother as father defends son as Mission Log presents Facets.

Love - or a close proximity - is in the air when Lwaxana drops by Deep Space Nine for the Bajoran Gratitude Festival. She's still obsessed with Odo. Vedek Bareil's obsession shifts from Kira to Jadzia. Jadzia is all over Sisko, and Jake can't stop obsessing over Kira. The only two who can't seem to fall in love are the O'Briens.

Convention season means catching up with listeners, fellow podcasters and trying to hash out some big ideas brought up by Star Trek. This episode, we invite you to listen to the panel at San Diego Comic Con presented by Larry Nemecek, “Is utopian Star Trek passé”? In the last fifty years, has Star Trek lost its idealistic roots? If so, is that a function of the writers or audience expectation? And what does utopia look like anyway?

Our old friend William T. Riker stops by Deep Space Nine during leave, but he's not acting like himself. In fact, he's not himself - he's Thomas Riker, Will's transporter clone. Thomas is on a mission to steal the Defiant in the name of the Maquis and challenge the Cardassians in the demilitarized zone. Is the mission about policy though, or is it about ego? We put Defiant into this week's Mission Log.

Back when Deep Space 9 was Terok Nor, the Cardassians laid out a series of deadly countermeasures in case there was a Bajoran uprising. All of those failsafes are now, uh, failing, which traps the DS9 crew and Gul Dukat himself in a station that will soon self destruct. Civil Defense goes into the Mission Log.

You play your money, you take your chances! Quark buys a ship - sight unseen. The deal comes up snake eyes, or really - Jem’Hadar. He didn’t just buy a ship. He accidentally bought a Jem’Hadar baby. Odo will play his hand. Feeling some Founder responsibility, he tries to raise the Jem’Hadar kid as his own. Or at least NOT as a soulless killer. Meanwhile, Jake’s playing the love game with the dabo girl Mardah, though Sisko thinks he’s got an ace up his sleeve to wreck Jake’s game. You play your money, you take your chances, when The Abandoned goes into the Mission Log.

Kira gets a strange call from Bajor. They want to ask her about the time she spent in a Cardassian detention center during the occupation. Kira doesn’t remember being there, but that’s okay. She doesn’t remember being a deep cover Cardassian operative either. 

Wait, what?!?

Complex, duplicitous Garak joins the crew to bring Kira back! Or Iliana. Whoever! This week, Second Skin goes into the Mission Log.
