Storyline

Sisko gets an urgent message from Bajor and delivers some bad news to Kira. Kalem Aprem, First Minister of the Provisional Government, has died from a heart attack. Kira is very upset to hear spiritual leader Kai Winn has already been appointed as successor. Kira is concerned about the future of Bajor and she can't shake the feeling that giving Winn control of the government is a mistake. Suddenly Winn visits the station to see Kira. She has a favor to ask. Shakaar, the leader of Kira's resistance cell during the Cardassian occupation and now farmer, refuses to return some government-loaned soil reclamators. They are used to detoxify soil poisoned by the Cardassians. Winn wants to use them in the Rakantha province, once Bajor's most productive farmland. She thinks this will once again make export possible, increasing Bajor's chances of being accepted into the Federation. Kira agrees to talk to Shakaar. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Another episode involving the always kind and cuddly Kai Winn.
27 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I like episodes about Kai Winn. After all, she is incredibly evil, nasty and easy to hate. So, naturally I enjoyed "Shakaar" because it showed yet another side of this awful lady....and it was every bit as awful as I'd hoped!

The episode begins with Major Kira learning that the leader of the Bajoran council has died. If this isn't bad enough, Kai Winn has now taken his place!! And, since she is now the head of the government, the Major has to report directly to the Kai!! But to make things worse, she wants Kira to deal with a problem involving a friend, Shakaar. How can Kira remain loyal to her government, her people and her principles?

This is a pretty good episode--one I was about to give a 7 to until the ending--which earns it an 8. Like the best Kai Winn episodes, it features a nice twist at the end that make it worth seeing.
