The awkward facts about Kira's mother
17 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Dukat contacts Major Kira and claims that her mother left her father for him she must learn the truth so uses the Orb of Time to travel back to that time to learn the truth. Although she promised not to do anything that might change the past she quickly acts to protect her parents when other Bajorans try to take their food. She and her mother are soon selected by a Bajoran collaborator to provide 'comfort' to the Cardassians stationed on DS9, or Terok Nor as it was then called. Her mother is soon selected by Gul Dukat but at first Kira can't believe she is with him willingly, soon however she realises her mother is indeed a collaborator. She agrees to help the resistance carry out an attack that will kill Dul Dukat and her mother but at the last minute she can't let her mother die.

This was an good episode which made Major Kira question her beliefs, about her mother, Gul Dukat and those who collaborated. Dukat comes across as manipulative as we would expect but he was true to his word when he said he would look after Kira's mother's family; so in a way Kira owes her life to him. We also got look at an earlier period of the occupation than I think we've seen before, it was interesting to see just how many Bajorans happily collaborated with the occupying forces.
