Trek Geeks - A Star Trek Podcast is a casual discussion on Star Trek between two friends that have known each other for 20 years.

Each week, Dan Davidson and Bill Smith will highlight various Star Trek topics covering The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and well as the new feature films and independently produced shows! In addition, they'll stump one another with trivia and have conversations with various contributors and celebrities throughout the Star Trek Universe.

PARENTS: The following episode of the podcast contains mature content and themes including an open and frank discussion on the topics of suicide and self-harm which may be unsuitable for younger listeners.

Parental discretion is strongly advised.

This week, we look at the sixth episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Captive Pursuit introduces us to the first visitor to the station from the Gamma Quadrant. He is Tosk and there's a lot he's not telling our crew. 

This was an episode that demonstrated that DS9 could be every bit as much Trek as TOS and TNG before it, and there's a lot to discover in this story.

Additionally, this was the episode that literally saved Dan's life and we'll talk about the episode in that context as well.

We hope you will join us for this very special episode of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast.


This episode also features a preview of the full-length Episode 0 of our brand new podcast, "Discovering Trek: A Star Trek Discovery Companion!"

Stay tuned after the end theme for our introduction to the new show and when you're done, head on over to to find out more!
