Trivia

When Dukat tells Kira that Sisko allowed him to see behind the lies and face the truth about himself, he is referring to the episode "Waltz", where Dukat comes to realize that he truly hates the Bajoran people and he admits that he feels he should have exterminated them all during the Occupation.

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Kira Taban: [in a recorded message to his wife, who has become a Cardassian comfort woman] Meru, I hope the Cardassians aren't lying to me, and that they really will send this message to you. I know it's only been a few weeks that we've been back home; but you should see the children. It's like they've been transformed. Reon and Pohl are laughing and playing together; they've never been happier. And I swear, little Nerys must have gained five pounds. Of course, they keep asking for you. I've told them that ...

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.
