The Orb 82: Kai Ben / by Trek fm

Deep Space Nine Season Eight.

The finale of DS9 ended with the crew becoming scattered, Sisko in the Celestial Temple, and a feeling of complete and utter change. But what if the plan had been for eight seasons? What if the writers had 26 more episodes to continue the story they had begun? In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing imagine what would have happened with Sisko, Odo, Jake, the O’Briens, the station, the Federation and more.
