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.

While Major Kira is showing Ziyal the features of the Federation phaser rifle, she opens and closes the "fully autonomous recharge" component on the bottom of the rifle (heard locking back in to place). A few moments later, it accidentally drops loose when she demonstrates how the rifle is gyro-stabilized by tossing it in her hands. See more
There was a time when the mere mention of my race inspired fear. And now, we're a beaten people, afraid to fight back because we don't wanna lose what little is left.
Major Kira Nerys
That's not the Cardassians I know.
What Cardassians? Don't you see, Major? They're paralyzed! They're beaten and defeated! *I* am the *only* Cardassian left. And if no one else... will stand against the Klingons, I will!
