DS9 Rewatch: Season 1, Episodes 5 and 6 2

Captive Pursuit oh boy oh boy. Starting off the episode great with Quark apparently having a sexual harrassment clause in his contracts for the women that work at his bar.

DS9 Rewatch: Season 1, Episode 3 & 4

The Importance of [Scary] Stories

I grew up on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

I ultimately decided that seeing this movie might not actually kill me because after watching the TV spots, the glimpses ...
