dead kitchen radio

what will the March 2014 episode of Dead Kitchen Radio be?????

Okay, I'm opening this up to the general public. Need help deciding what to do for the March 2014 episode of Dead Kitchen Radio: The Keith R.A. DeCandido Podcast.

In January, I'm doing an episode on Gryphon Precinct, and April, May, and June are covered as well, discussing, respectively, Out of Tune, The Klingon Art of War, and the Firefly: Echoes of War role-playing game.

For February, I'm going to look back on the A Time to... nine-book miniseries of Star Trek: The Next Generation novels in which I and several other authors did a big lead-up to the movie Nemesis and also set up the post-Nemesis status quo that we've seen in the novels in the decade since. (That's part of why I'm doing it in February, as that's the tenth anniversary of the release of the first book in the series, A Time to be Born by John Vornholt.)

So that leaves March. What do y'all want me to talk about in March 2014 on DKR? Speak! And be heard!

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Rewatch: "Through the Looking Glass"

Sisko goes to the Mirror Universe and gets to have guilt-free sex with Kira and Dax. Lucky him. The DS9 Rewatch goes "Through the Looking Glass."

An excerpt:
Sisko makes an impassioned plea to Jennifer to join the rebellion and fight for their people—to not let her fight with him color her reality so much that she insists on being on the opposite side of him no matter what. She finally agrees, but makes sure Sisko understands that she still hates him. “I know,” Sisko says in a hilarious reverse echo of Han Solo, and he signals Smiley with a subcutaneous communicator that he says is “courtesy the Ferengi.” Sisko takes out the guards while Smiley sabotages the security system.

Sisko, Jennifer, Smiley, and several workers Smiley has freed make it to Airlock 7 where they’re supposed to rendezvous with Rom. Instead, they find Rom impaled on the wall. Rom, it turns out, gave them up under Garak’s torture. Sisko and the others retreat to the ore processor where Sisko does something his counterpart could never have done, and that’s activate the station’s self-destruct and then change the access code.
