This is a recurring error in Star Trek. Anyone not being an enemy is considered an ally. The Romulans have a nonaggression pact with the Dominion, but are referred to as allies. A nonaggression pact is just that, it is not an alliance. See more »


Kira Meru: What do you expect me to do? Kick and bite Dukat every time he comes near me? How is that gonna help Taban or the children?
Kira Nerys (as Luma Rahl): Oh, is that what you tell yourself, that you're doing it for the children? The clothes, the food, the easy living, that you're doing it all for them? Are you that deluded? It's not for them. It's for you. You like it here. You enjoy playing house with that murderer. Don't you see what you are? What you've allowed yourself to become? You're a collaborator!

The third sub-par episode in a row...
22 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I noticed with both episodes preceding this one that one of the IMDb reviewers described it as being the worst or among the worst episodes ever made! While I don't see any such comments yet for this one, I feel that it is the third episode in a row that disappoints. Among the worst? Who knows...but clearly the three shows left me flat.

This show is unusual in that it only has one plot--not the usual two. When the show begins, Dukat makes a snarky call to Kira on the birthday of her dead mother. He makes it sound as if he and Kira Meru were lovers--and she was very, very willing. Kira can't live without knowing the truth so she buzzes down to Bajor to play with the orb that tells the future. It takes her on a trip back in time to when her mother was taken from the family and made a 'comfort woman' for Dukat.

There are a couple problems with this one. The biggest is that it is a 'who cares?' episode, as it has no real impact on the series nor does it advance any plot. It's just about giving Major Kira a sense of peace of mind. Yeah, whatever. The other problem is that the Major's behaviors throughout the show are very inconsistent and confusing to say the least. Not a bad show--just far from the usual high quality I'd come to expect.
