In my continuing quest to get more people to love the crown jewel of the Star Trek franchise, Deep Space Nine, I’m here to provide another way to become acquainted with the series. (Readers can find my earlier article here.) Other than its serialized structure, Deep Space Nine is known for its deep and rich roster of characters. Now that DS9 is enjoying a second life as ground zero for political satire, it’s possible one of these characters has caught your eye as a meme and you want to learn more. Maybe you’re interested in the captain who is now famous for punching out Q, or the woman who showed how trans-friendly Klingons could be, or even the scaly dude who talks like the president on Twitter.
“Over fifteen years, Supernatural has shown it is far more than your average genre show about handsome dudes who fight monsters.”

In thinking about the paths that our heroes take in the Star Wars saga - for the original trilogy, that of Luke Skywalker, and for the most recent trilogy, the tale of Rey (now Skywalker) - my mind is awash with questions and conflicts.

He fought against the dark side of the Force to save his father from a death that would have disconnected him with all living things.
The creators of Deiciders have returned with another chapter in a mythical quest featuring warriors hunting down fantastic creatures.

This time, they’re on the hunt for a fire-breathing dragon, but their previous battle has left them injured and in need of help. Should they trust Freya, a stranger who seemingly helps them upon their first meeting?

Well, that escalated quickly. Even after the excitement of Alien Day, (and if’d ya didn’t read those pieces, go check them out – especially Bryant’s piece on corporate dystopia in the Alien films, cuz let’s be honest, Delos and Incite are taking pages straight out of the Weyland-Yutani group of companies. In the future, all corporations will have secret androids out to end humanity!), “Passed Pawn” is a big, ol’ slugfest that reveals as much as it conceals for the finale (and we finally got to see Dolores and Maeve go at it! Yay!).
