Today In STAR TREK History: June 13th

Yay, Karaoke time! Oh, not that type of Duet...
Welcome to our round-up of the Star Trek episodes which received their premiere broadcast on this day throughout the show's long history, along with anything else of note that may have taken place. All viewing figures quoted are for U.S. premiere broadcast (unless noted).

June 13th
On this day in 1993, the first season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was nearing an end. The 19th and penultimate episode of the freshman year was titled Duet and would see Major Kira Nerys finding herself compelled to confront an apparent Cardassian war criminal who may be lying about his identity. The visiting Cardassian, Marritza, may in fact be the notorious war criminal Gul Darhe'el, butcher of Gallitep labor camp.

Despite conceived as a money-saving bottle episode, Duet received much critical acclaim, both for the quality of its performances and for the moral issues explored by the story. Described by as "one of DS9s — possibly even one of Treks — finest [hours]".

Join us again next time for another round-up of the episodes broadcast, the movie's released, the special events, the birthday's celebrated and anything else of note that went down on this day in Star Trek history.
