“Ben Sisko’s Non-Linear, Non-Binary Arc in Deep Space Nine’s ‘Emissary’ Saved All My Lives”

“But as we move not forward but outward, Sisko’s non-linear, non-binary arc in ‘Emissary’ can help. It can remind us that we leave ourselves here, and we carry ourselves onward. We exist before all of this, too, not in a Funko Pop! of a nostalgic character, but in that self that still survives so as to be proud of the selves that have grown out of it. We’re here, but we’re not stuck here, because we’re also everywhere else.”

Jonathan Alexandratos writes more about escaping binaries, their experience and Deep Space Nine‘s Benjamin Sisko here.
