This week, when a ragtag band of pirates puts one over on the Cardassians, Dukat doesn’t care what he has to do to stop them. But when Diva Plavalaguna turns out to have some surprising haggling bona fides, there could be danger to DS9 from inside and outside. How many kinds of spiders does Bajor have? What’s the worst episode of season one? And why is everyone picking on Julian? All this and more in Proud Helios, the book that resembles its subject a little too closely.
