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)

Best of the best
13 June 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I won't discuss in detail the plot of this episode - others have done so better than I can - but I agree that this episode is one of the best pieces of television I have ever seen.

Deep Space Nine always was/is the best of the Treks, as it did not always have a happy ending, but often made you think so that the "ending" depended on your outlook.

I remember seeing this episode when it was first run in Australia and being totally wowed by it. It is an episode that takes you down one direction, then swings you 180 degrees, and ends by making you rethink all you know about guilt and redemption. It truly was the best of the best.

A life changing episode for a thinking audience.
