“The Siege of AR-558” (DS9) with Grant Jun Otsuki


Grant Jun Otsuki, a cultural anthropologist, joins Scott to discuss "The Siege of AR-558" (DS9 S7E8). We attempt to have a lighthearted conversation about a very heavy episode of Deep Space Nine. Topics include which Captain you'd want to work for, how great Avery Brooks' performance is in this episode, and why the heck was Quark allowed to hang around in this situation.

Be sure to read Grant's fantastic McSweeney's piece "Due to Falling Enrollments, We Will No Longer Offer Courses In Romulan At Starfleet Academy."

Next Episode: "Daedalus" (ENT S4E10) with John Siracusa.
