Aamin Marritza


Aamin Marritza, a Cardassian suffering from Kalla-Nohra, turns to DS9 for medical attention. Major Kira Nerys immediately recognizes the disease. He could only have contracted it when an accident occurred in the labor camp Gallitepp on Bajor during the Cardassian occupation. Kira herself helped liberate the camp and she knows of the atrocities camp commander Gul Darhe'el committed. She is determined to convict Marritza for war crimes. The Cardassian first denies having Kallo-Nohra, then claims he was only a filing clerk. With Bajor wanting to convict him and Cardassia wanting his release, Sisko faces a tough decision. Then photographic evidence arrives. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

A gem of an episode for a mediocre series.
25 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As Deep Space Nine was my least favorite offshoots of the STAR TREK franchise, I must agree that this is just about as good as TV gets when it comes to writing and acting. Even from beneath layers of alien makeup. actor Harris Yulin gives a stimulating and thought- provoking portrayal of a genocidal maniac OR an inept soldier/excellent file clerk.

Furthermore, if this story had been portrayed on almost any other war setting such as a civil war epic, WWII, Vietnam, Iraq...it still would be as powerful an experience especially with actors like Yulin and Visitor.
