Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Rewatch: "Duet"

Kira has the Butcher of Gallitep in a cell -- OR DOES SHE???? One of Star Trek's finest hours, as the DS9 Rewatch does "Duet."

An excerpt:
But this episode reminds us, both subtly as Marritza’s true character is revealed and bluntly at the end with Kira’s final line, that Cardassians are people and they come in all shapes and sizes. For every Darhe’el, for every Dukat, there’s also a Marritza who was just a frightened filing clerk who was stuck in a charnel house and too much of a coward to do anything about it. Kira can happily blame Darhe’el for being a villain, but though she’s more than happy to condemn Marritza just for being at Gallitep at first, ultimately she can’t fault him for not being a hero.

me on writing across genres at Wizard World NYC this weekend

I will be at Wizard World NYC at Pier 36 in Manhattan this weekend, but only on Sunday, and only for a cool panel being hosted by the magnificent Cici James of Singularity & Co. at 2pm on "Storytelling Across Genres," which will also include fellow authors Myke Coke and Alaya Johnson, as well as pop-culture writer Kaila Hale-Stern.

So if you'll be at the con, come to the Mezzanine Room Sunday at 2pm and check us out!
