You asked for it (you didn't), so we delivered (we did)! We start with Zach's unfiltered thoughts about Solo, A Star Wars Movie, then David tries his hardest to segue back to Star Trek Discovery. Then we get into the subject of this episode: Star Trek Deep Space Nine, S1E18 Duet. David compares the Cardassian occupation of Bajor to 19th century colonialism.
