Storyline

Kira is contacted by Alenis Grem of the Bajoran Central Archives. She is doing a research on the former Elemspur detention center. Grem has proof Kira was once detained there, but she is sure that isn't true. When the only remaining living inmate recognizes her, Kira decides to travel to the Archives to sort things out. But she never arrives. While the crew searches for her, Kira awakes on Cardassia. She's been turned into a Cardassian and is told she served as a spy on Bajor, whose long term memory was altered to avoid discovery. Her name is Iliana Ghemor, daughter of legate Tekeny Ghemor. While she denounces the thing as preposterous as first, she starts having serious doubts when Entek of the Obisidian Order provides more and more convincing proof.

Kira...the Cardassian.
20 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Major Kira is supposed to be going down to Bajor. However, the Obsidian Order of the Cardassians have instead intercepted her and brought her back to Cardassia Prime. Here is the weird part--they've also done extensive cosmetic surgery on her so that she now LOOKS just like a Cardassians. Additionally, they're now telling her a crazy story that she's ALWAYS been a Cardassian and that her memories are fake--because she is a Cardassian agent! Of course this isn't true...but WHY would they do all this? See the show to discover the answer in this strange but otherwise okay episode. I say okay because although the premise is interesting enough, the actual answer and what happens next isn't particularly thrilling.
