182: Admiral Satie Death March
The Drumhead.     In any organization, it is good to fix what is broken. But what if nothing is broken and you are still looking for a problem? Captain Picard must find the saboteur after an explosion in engineering and information leaks to the Romulans. Starfleet sends in Admiral Satie to assist Picard. Her determination is relentless. She continues her search even after the resolution of the problems have been found and ends up calling Captain Picard a traitor to the Federation. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez and Amy Nelson with special guest Patrick Devlin discuss "The Drumhead." This profound episode reveals the true nature of witch hunts. We explore the background of drumhead trials which adds to the meaning of this story. We can see their effects portrayed in Worf as he gets caught up in the frenzy of suspicion. We recognize the need to be ever diligent against extreme suspicion as Picard warns throughout the entire episode.
