Kira is kidnapped and taken to Empok Nor by a member of a Pah'Wraith cult and discovers the group leader is Gul Dukat.
Did You Know?
This episode was inspired by the Heaven's Gate cult led by Marshall Applewhite
. In March of 1997, Applewhite and 38 other members (including the brother of Star Trek
(1966)'s Nichelle Nichols
) committed suicide, believing they were aliens and their bodies would be transported to a space ship hidden behind a passing comet. The group has an official website, which is still accessible today. See more
I know this is gonna sound crazy; but I think Dukat convinced himself that he was doing what the Pah-wraiths wanted.
Who knows? Maybe he was.
Either way, he believes. And that makes him more dangerous than ever.
