This week, Mike and Barry discuss Deep Space Nine's various religious practices, focusing specifically on the Bajorans and the Prophets, the Dominion and the Founders, and the Ferengi and their actual worship of greed and profit. We'll talk about how this series more than any of the others contentrated heavily on questions of faith and how it affected the characters, the plots and themes. We'll also compare them to other religions and faith practices throughout Star Trek, and see how they can help us learn about spiritual beliefs here back home. Episode 83 is online, "Prophets, Founders, and the Divine Treasury."
