Did You Know?


The assassination attempt to which Dukat refers in "Waltz" could be the one seen in this episode. He says it occurred on his one month anniversary, and, given the chronology established in this episode, that would seem to fit. See more »


This is a recurring error in Star Trek. Anyone not being an enemy is considered an ally. The Romulans have a nonaggression pact with the Dominion, but are referred to as allies. A nonaggression pact is just that, it is not an alliance. See more »


Gul Dukat: I'm afraid to ask how you came by such a mark.
Kira Meru: It's nothing.
Gul Dukat: On the contrary. It's an unfortunate reminder of the gulf that exists between our two peoples. It must be removed immediately.

The third sub-par episode in a row...
22 January 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I noticed with both episodes preceding this one that one of the IMDb reviewers described it as being the worst or among the worst episodes ever made! While I don't see any such comments yet for this one, I feel that it is the third episode in a row that disappoints. Among the worst? Who knows...but clearly the three shows left me flat.

This show is unusual in that it only has one plot--not the usual two. When the show begins, Dukat makes a snarky call to Kira on the birthday of her dead mother. He makes it sound as if he and Kira Meru were lovers--and she was very, very willing. Kira can't live without knowing the truth so she buzzes down to Bajor to play with the orb that tells the future. It takes her on a trip back in time to when her mother was taken from the family and made a 'comfort woman' for Dukat.

There are a couple problems with this one. The biggest is that it is a 'who cares?' episode, as it has no real impact on the series nor does it advance any plot. It's just about giving Major Kira a sense of peace of mind. Yeah, whatever. The other problem is that the Major's behaviors throughout the show are very inconsistent and confusing to say the least. Not a bad show--just far from the usual high quality I'd come to expect.
