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

Who are they?
Survivors of Gallitep. They arrived early this morning. I suppose they are waiting for justice.
Gallitep... Imagine living through that hellhole... the pain... the sorrow... Do you think they like to gamble?
