The Orb 5: Torn Between Two Worlds / by Trek fm


When he was found in the Denorios Belt, Odo was literally a blank slate. As a being without form, without knowledge of his origins, and without knowing how to interact with those who had brought him in, Odo found himself at the beginning of a long journey that would ultimately find him torn between the world of his birth and the world in which he—for the lack of a better term—grew up. In this episode of The Orb, hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing take a closer look at Odo and his search for identity and acceptance, as well as how he adapted to the changining environments of Terok Nor and Deep Space 9. We also look at what he learned from Quark and how his love for Kira ultimately shaped the person he became—and saved the Alpha Quadrant in the process.
