Dukat finds his daughter
18 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Major Kira learns about the location of a Cardassian ship which was transporting Bajoran prisoners including the man who recruited her in to the resistance she is determined to go and search for survivors. When the Cardassians learn of Kira's discovery they insist on sending somebody to accompany her as they want to know what happened to the ship as well. Kira isn't too pleased when she discovers that the Cardassian who will accompany her is to be Gul Dukat. When they find the crashed ship they also find several graves, including that of a Bajoran woman with whom Dukat had been involved with many years before, in fact she also bore his child. Kira is shocked when she finds out that he plans to kill her in order to protect his family and position back on Cardassia. When they discover the survivors they find that they are being used as slave labour by the Breen. When they liberate the prisoners Kira must save Dukat's daughter. Back on DS9 their is a secondary story concerning Captain Sisko's potential girl friend has been offered a job on Bajor and might be moving on to the station... until his response isn't quite as enthusiastic as she would have liked.

I really liked the main story, Dukat's determination of find and kill his daughter reminded me of the John Wayne classic "The Searchers" even if the motivations are different. Nana Visitor and Marc Alaimo do well as Kira and Dukat; while the characters don't like each other the actors work well as the two antagonists. The second story was far too soapy for my liking although it only took up a little time so didn't spoil the episode.
