The Orb 43: She’s Really Good with d20s / by Trek fm

Move Along Home as a TOS Episode.

One of the most infamous episodes of Deep Space Nine, “Move Along Home” is almost universally hated by Niners. The moment of first official contact with a race from the Gamma Quadrant—a moment that Sisko took very seriously—was turned into a night of games. Nothing could be less DS9 than “Allamaraine!” right? Well, in this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing are joined by Standard Orbit’s Drew Stewart to present an angle that might make “Move Along Home” a bit easier to swallow. What if this were not a DS9 episode, but rather a TOS one? It might be considered a classic. There are many similarities between these gaming aliens, the struggles of our crew, and 1960s Star Trek storytelling. Join us as we climb the shaps and see if you agree that cries of “Allamaraine!” could have been TOS gold.
