Keeping Up With the Cardassians


A Strange New Pod's Best Of Species series continues with the military might of the Cardassian Union.

In this episode, the crew takes a look back at the early days of the Cardassians in Star Trek: The Next Generation, from episodes like "The Wounded," and "Chain of Command," all the way to the penultimate episode of TNG, "Preemptive Strike."

Why was Starfleet so passive after the Border Wars, and why were Admirals being manipulated by Cardassian Guls? Why was the Maquis formed? The ASNP crew asks these questions and talks about the comparisons made between the Cardassians and Nazi Germany.

All that and more this week on A Strange New Pod.
