Shore leave is over! Discovery Debrief returns from its hiatus to bring the next part in our sub-series examining our panelists' all-time favorite STAR TREK episodes. This time, our bold panel of STAR TREK franchise explorers — Chris Clow (Movies.com, Comics on Consoles), Rachael Clow (Biology PhD candidate), Zaki Hasan (Zaki's Corner, MovieFilm Podcast), and Cicero Holmes (Spawn On Me Cast) — come together to talk about Zaki's choice: one of the single most emotionally-charged TREK episodes ever produced, "The Visitor" from season four of STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE!
Featuring a story of unconditional love, mourning, sacrifice, and family, "The Visitor" strikes all of our panelists hard and in very different ways. We take a close look at the relationship between the Sisko father and son, as well as the powerful performances turned in by series leads AVERY BROOKS and CIRROC LOFTON, as well as the terrific guest appearance from TREK veteran TONY TODD as the elder vision of Jake Sisko himself.
Plus, we take a quick look at some of the biggest franchise news to transpire over the course of our hiatus, as well as announce the next episode in the Favorites series that comes from the incomparable Cicero Holmes! This is one of the best discussions our panel has ever had, so don't miss it!
