Join Jack, Kevin and Sam as they journey through the wonderful world of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, one randomly selected episode at a time! Each week, they'll go over their notes on each episode, compare them with other iterations of Star Trek, complain about Voyager, talk about whatever the hell else comes to mind, and much, much more! Of course it wouldn't be Reopening the Wormhole without the requisite visit to Quark's to spin the Dabo wheel and determine next week's episode. So crack op ...

The Super Rios Brothers enter Stovold’kor to get drunker than Cristobal Rios on his third bottle of aguardiente to talk about the latest Trek book wackiness from John Jackson Miller, and boy do they accomplish that as they read this tragicomic tale of Benzites, Miradorns, Iotians, and more wacky Trek characters who you never imagined would be in a …
 
Are you still reeling from our epic Caretaker takedown? Well that’s too bad! We’ve got our thrilling annual Halloween episode coming right at ya!

Despite the technical setbacks, the…
 
It’s finally here, for the five or so you out there who care, but you’ll find out it was WORTH THE WAIT to hear Barm, Sean Davis and Richard Dunham (plus a few surprise pop-ons [you’re gonna get some pop-ons/offs]) chat about the action/beluga/Sonia Gomez-packed Season 2 Cliffhanger of Lower Decks.

Sean and Barm are down near where those pleasant “mosaic’ed” fountains lie doing their usual routine on Jack’s deck, because IT WORKS, dammit. It’s like he gets off on being podcasting. What gets Jack going? Try talking about well… porn, trying to remember the names of minor characters from LOST, Rick and Morty and DARK, AGAIN, guacamole and ramen,…
 
It’s Reopening the Wormhole week up in this bitch, as RTW cohosts Sam and Kevin reunite with Jack to talk PAKLED PLANET SHENANIGANS, beloved anomalies, slugs and SCORPIONS and the RED SHIRTS.

It’s a Starbase-sized episode as Jack calls back Barm, Sean, and Sam to talk about a really fun Lower Decks ep just jam-packed with Trek deep cuts, a heartwarming email section, and then close out with some Trailer-Sailin’ and news talk about SNW, Prodigy, Picard Season 2 and all the other crazy crap that came out on Star Trek day.

Jack (cohost of the APECAST!) gets so excited about the meeting of the classic ape-like Mugatos with villainous laser-whippin’ Ferengis that he has to call Ferengi expert Kregg (obviously!), Barm (as you do) and brother Sam (why not?) to go absolutely APESHIT over this wacky adventure. In the spirit of the episode, they have plenty of pronunciation…
 
Sean Davis is back to talk Lower Decks and the return (in very different ways) of both Tom Paris and Shaxs with Jack and Barm, but not before they try to remember any time Tom Cruise has died in a movie.

Lower Decks is BACK, and so are the PD Crew (RTW+Barm), and Geoff (The ApeCast), to talk about it! Or rather, spend a few hours goofing around with each other and occasionally talking about the episode, which is a fine thing including giant heads and Gary Mitchell references. In other words, we’ve become GODS. One listen, and you’ll agree: We’re us…

Get out the Cheeza, because Jack and Kevin have made their third annual musical discovery: Disc-overy, by Tinie Tempah! They’ve already delved into 70’s British Disco/Rock and early aughts French electronica, why not early teens British hip-hop? And this time, it’s the first listen-through for both involved. Will they fancy TT? Will they ever look …
 
Jack and Lauren finally get up in that ass to talk about The Lefty Call, in their fourth annual Jaxilly Curb Your Enthusiasm Extravaganza!

As always, Ferengiman Kregg joins in to weigh the good…
 
Jack perverts Sam’s very reasonable idea of watching every commercial they can find of Star Trek actors playing their characters in TV commercials by creating exceptions and watering down the concept until the episode becomes a bloated, overly long mess that needed to be split into two parts to even approach being manageable, yet still manages to b…
 
On this 11th installment (again, not the same 11 you would think), Jack and Kregg are really scraping the bottom of the barrel, as they record a drunken commentary and make jokes about what is already essentially a joke; the fan dub of Episode III called Star war: The Third Gather - Backstroke of the West, based on a bootleg DVD with a Google trans…
 
We’ve heard your cries, your desperate pleas: “Why won’t this Star Trek podcast just give in and do a Mortal Kombat episode already?” Well the time is here!

The new chapter of the RTW story begins, with our first Tongo Bonus episode! That’s right, our journey through every non-DS9 Ferengi episode in Trek begins here, coincidentally, with the first Ferengi episode! Did we say “first”? We meant WORST! Well actually we meant both. But there’s a lot of mud to sling at this episode, and the RTW crew and Fer…
 
John Davidson once again joins Zack and perennial hanger-on Barnacle to finally get back through the Stargate to talk about SeaQuest DSV again, and we got ourselves a doozy here!

Sister! Sooooo, Barm has a ….younger sister! This podcast has now betrayed her, too. Kaela Neufeld makes her Jaxilly debut to talk about one of her (and now our!) favorite books, John Scalzi’s Redshirts! The Barms and Jack dive into a meta(physical) masterpiece of dry comedy, satire and metafictional tomfoolery, all inspired by classic Trek cannon …
