O’Brien is all smiles when he… takes Sisko at the point of a phaser to the mirror universe. Smiley has a job for Commander Sisko: Pretend to be Captain Sisko of the Terran rebellion and convince his wife - Jennifer (yes, Sisko’s Jennifer (kind of)) to stop building a weapon that will crush the rebellion. And if he happens to sleep with a couple of mirror universe copies of his co-workers… fine? We’re Through the Looking Glass on this episode of Mission Log.

Dr. Bashir has voices in his head that happen to sound and look like his crewmates. They're a little different though: they bicker with him and each other, they distract him and they stay the same while Julian ages rapidly. Is it all just in his head, or is the doctor's life being threatened? This week, Mission Log hears Distant Voices.

Meanwhile, Nog is bucking family tradition by trying to join Starfleet - if only he can get a reluctant Commander Sisko on his side. Heart of Stone goes into the Mission Log.

Love - or a close proximity - is in the air when Lwaxana drops by Deep Space Nine for the Bajoran Gratitude Festival. She's still obsessed with Odo. Vedek Bareil's obsession shifts from Kira to Jadzia. Jadzia is all over Sisko, and Jake can't stop obsessing over Kira. The only two who can't seem to fall in love are the O'Briens. It's a mid-station's night dream when Fascination goes into the Mission Log.

Convention season means catching up with listeners, fellow podcasters and trying to hash out some big ideas brought up by Star Trek. This episode, we invite you to listen to the panel at San Diego Comic Con presented by Larry Nemecek, “Is utopian Star Trek passé”? In the last fifty years, has Star Trek lost its idealistic roots? If so, is that a function of the writers or audience expectation? And what does utopia look like anyway?

Our old friend William T. Riker stops by Deep Space Nine during leave, but he's not acting like himself. In fact, he's not himself - he's Thomas Riker, Will's transporter clone. Thomas is on a mission to steal the Defiant in the name of the Maquis and challenge the Cardassians in the demilitarized zone. Is the mission about policy though, or is it about ego? We put Defiant into this week's Mission Log.

Back when Deep Space 9 was Terok Nor, the Cardassians laid out a series of deadly countermeasures in case there was a Bajoran uprising. All of those failsafes are now, uh, failing, which traps the DS9 crew and Gul Dukat himself in a station that will soon self destruct. Civil Defense goes into the Mission Log.

You play your money, you take your chances! Quark buys a ship - sight unseen. The deal comes up snake eyes, or really - Jem’Hadar. He didn’t just buy a ship. He accidentally bought a Jem’Hadar baby. Odo will play his hand. Feeling some Founder responsibility, he tries to raise the Jem’Hadar kid as his own. Or at least NOT as a soulless killer. Meanwhile, Jake’s playing the love game with the dabo girl Mardah, though Sisko thinks he’s got an ace up his sleeve to wreck Jake’s game. You play your money, you take your chances, when The Abandoned goes into the Mission Log.

Kira gets a strange call from Bajor. They want to ask her about the time she spent in a Cardassian detention center during the occupation. Kira doesn’t remember being there, but that’s okay. She doesn’t remember being a deep cover Cardassian operative either. 

Wait, what?!?

Complex, duplicitous Garak joins the crew to bring Kira back! Or Iliana. Whoever! This week, Second Skin goes into the Mission Log.

A few hallucinations later and it’s time to visit the Trill home world of Trill. Population: Lots of Trill - and a secret that could tumble Trill society. Don’t worry. It’ll all even out when Mission Log finds Equilibrium.

What can you say about a 6.5-year-old show going on a three-month hiatus? A decent amount, it turns out. Mission Log creator and executive producer Rod Roddenberry turns the tables on John and Ken, asking about the show so far, interactions with listeners, and hopes for the future of Mission Log.

Commander Sisko leads an educational camping trip in the Gamma Quadrant for Jake and Nog. Quark comes along just to make it super uncomfortable, but maybe he'll find some time to bond with Ben too - especially if it means cutting a deal for himself back on DS9. All the fun around the campfire stops, though, when a dangerous new enemy makes itself known. The Jem'Hadar drop into this week's Mission Log.

It’s a very merry unvacation for the O’Briens. A romantic getaway for Keiko and Miles shifts quickly to Miles being sentenced to death on Cardassia Prime. All that’s left now is the trial. A verdict that’s already decided, a defense attorney that can’t abide the idea of winning… if it all sounds terrible, just think of the children as Tribunal goes into the Mission Log.

Actions taken by a few Bajorans during the Cardassian occupation may close the door on Bareil’s chances, leaving the way clear for Vedek Winn. The Collaborator goes into this week’s Mission Log.

Fun Fact: The repetitive epic is the most elegant form in Cardassian literature. Also, Dr. Bashir is having lunch with plain, simple Garak. But things with Garak are not as simple as they seem. Kind of like the last time they had lunch. And the time before. And the time before. It is The Wire on this week’s episode of Mission Log.
