Kira has been asked by Shakaar to attend a conference on a remote Cardassian outpost. The two governments will exchange intelligence about the Klingons. The Major will be personally brought to this location by Gul Dukat. Ever since he brought his half Bajoran daughter Ziyal to Cardassia, things haven't been going well for him. He was stripped of his rank and is now a simple freighter captain. But, so he ensures Kira, it is only a temporary setback for him. When Kira arrives in Cardassian space, the outpost has been attacked by a Klingon bird-of-prey. All the diplomats are dead. Kira suggests mounting an outpost disruptor on the freighter to go after the Klingons. While Kira wants revenge for the dead diplomats, Dukat sees this as the perfect opportunity to redeem himself.

The African Queen
10 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode reminds me of "The African Queen" movie. The rough freighter captain and the missionary gal. They are on the same side but not liking each other. The underdog takes on the vastly superior ship though guts and improvising. The Klingon Captain is much like the Germain Captain... arrogant and not considering the smaller trade ship as a threat. It's an enjoyable episode with only two of the regular cast having any real screen time. The fun is watching Gul Dukat try to undermine Major Kira relationship with First Minister Shakaar. This is also one of the episodes that they try to soften Gul Dukat image and make him more of a complex character.
