Major Kira gets a message from Razka Karn, a smuggler during the occupation. He claims to have a found a lead to the location of the lost Cardassian prison ship Ravinok. One of her friends, Lorit Akrem, was on board and she decides to start an investigation. Then Sisko approaches her and asks her to wait. The Cardassian government has heard of her plans and wants to send a representative along. Kira is surprised to see it is Gul Dukat. He has a secret. Meanwhile, Sisko faces a problem of his own: Kasidy Yates announces she found a job opportunity in the Bajoran sector. She and the captain will be finally able to see each other more. Dax makes the suggestion she could get Kasidy quarters on the station. Kasidy likes the idea, but Sisko gets more and more uncomfortable. It's going a bit too fast for him and Kasidy notices his hesitation. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Rescue Mission
20 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Kira and Dukat head off to a planet where, during the Cardassian/Bajoran conflict, some refugees crashed. Kira is looking for an old friend who was on that ship. Dukat has a different motive, involving a daughter he sired during a tryst with a Bajoran woman. The secondary plot has to do with Benjamin and his love affair with the freighter captain (I can't help but think of her as the evil wife of the President in the series "24"). This is a rather tiresome part of the ongoing plot.
