TRANSCRIPT The Greatest Generation Ep. 287: Shampoo Holocaust (DS9 S5E13)

When the Captain goes undercover in the Star Trek caves, it’s finally time for him to toast one of his enemies. But when the pillow fight of arguments takes an ugly turn, a badly damaged Defiant is the only ship Starfleet can use to stop the Mayquees. Does the Bajoran Militia offer paid maternity leave? What would Dr. Freud say about the symbolism of firing on one’s own hologram? Do Michael Eddington and Norah Satie shop at the same stores? It’s the episode where we go back for the jokes because we accidentally categorized our show as comedy.

About the show

The Greatest Generation is a comedy podcast about Star Trek, beloved by everyone from people who’ve never seen an episode to hardcore nerds who are fluent in Klingon.

Once a week Benjamin Ahr Harrison and Adam Pranica watch an episode of Star Trek and tell you what’s great, what’s bad, and what’s hilarious about the show they grew up loving, and still do. It’s a little bit nerdy, a lot filthy, and exposes some of Adam and Ben’s most embarrassing stories from their dorky childhoods.
