DS9 premiered at the height of third wave feminism. In this episode, we’ll look at how Star Trek Deep Space Nine incorporated feminist thought of the ‘90s into its depictions of women and gender. Also, how that explains why Major Kira is always wearing a full face of makeup even when she’s roaming caves with a phaser rifle. And how the real villian isn't just the Dominion, it's Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Got questions? Recommendations?
