DS9 is often dismissed as the red-headed stepchild of the Star Trek franchise. They are in a space station, after all. It’s nigh impossible to trek anywhere in a stationary environment. Yet, there is one episode that consistently makes the lists of best hours across all of the shows, even in the most virulently anti-DS9 corners of Trek fandom, and it is this one, “Duet,” the penultimate episode of the first season. I still remember watching it when it aired and getting the distinct impression that I was watching something truly special, and no matter how many times I have revisited it since, that opinion has not wavered in the slightest. It is an hour that crystallizes what makes DS9 both distinct and great, telling a baroque tale of cowardice, regret, and ultimate redemption.
