For centuries, man has provided special areas set aside as a refuge, a safe harbor, a shelter to those seeking safety, justice or rest. Star Trek, especially Deep Space Nine, has always provided many examples of sanctuary and asylum. This week, Mike and Barry discuss several examples from DS9 where the station and Starfleet seek to give protection to those in need, plus numerous other examples throughout Trek. In today's troubled times of of prejudice and persecution, it's often useful to look to our artistic endeavours to provide insight and perspective on caring for those different than ourselves. Episode 84 is online: "Sanctuary".
