Quotes

Ghemor: [to Dukat, on the Dominion] I don't like the company you're keeping. You and I might have come to an agreement, one Cardassian to another. But now, dealing with you means dealing with them. And that makes the price too high.

I Agree--Inconsistencies of Character
31 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Kira continues to be a rather odd character. She is all over the place emotionally. She is often so tied to her revolutionary days that she can't see the forest for the trees. In this one, her mentor, her second father comes to the station to die. He is Cardassian and a highly reputed on his planet (which Gul Dukat and the Dominion have taken over) but is greatly disturbed by the circumstances. He is a vast storehouse of information. Through his incredible pain, he relates volumes of information about the Cardassian hierarchy and other important facts about their realm. The problem is the quickness with which Kira changes when she finds out about this guy's involvement in an attack on a monastery when he was very young. Her character is just to frenetic to get close to.
