The Orb is a podcast dedicated entirely to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Not an episode review show, The Orb explores specific elements with hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing. We dive deep into this unique chapter in the Star Trek story to examine how it tackles the shades of grey that we find in real life, and how it uses characters over technology to tell timeless stories that connect with the audience.

Customer Reviews

An insightful new DS9 podcast

There is so much ground to cover on Deep Space Nine, and Chris and Matt are big enough fans to do it. I just listened to the first show and my head is spinning with all the different possible subject matter that can be covered in upcoming episodes. I'm glad they aren't focusing on episode reviews. There are plenty of those around. This podcast looks at the series as a whole and delves into the heart of the mythos and characters.

Thoughtful DS9 Podcast!

DS9 is my favorite Trek Series. I was happy to find this podcast. The hosts have really hit the nail on the depth of DS9. I like that they cover broad topics so that it doesn't become a tedious episode review guide. There are many topics to cover with DS9. They have barely scratched the surface, which will make for some great topics to discuss in future podcasts.

Fascinating character discussion

I've listened to some podcasts where the participants are argumentative and disagreeable, but you get none of that abrasiveness here. Chris and Matt share thoughtful, insightful observations about the characters you already know and love. You come away with a new and greater appreciation and enjoyment of them and the writers who created them.
