Kira invites Tekeny Ghemor to DS9 to provide information about the new Cardassian political structure, but when the Cardassian opposition leader reveals he is dying Nerys struggles with her long held hatred of all Cardassians...
A Star Trek episode that only DS9 could pull off. Tekeny Ghemor was the guest character on one episode back in the third season and we thought that when that story was wrapped up with the reveal that Kira isn't a Cardassian spy and therefore not his daughter.

Only DS9 - with it's permanent base - can allow characters to return years later and dig a little deeper into their back story and learn about their motivations. For Ghemor this means to tell Kira his long held secrets about most of the hidden elements of the Cardassian government. For Kira that means putting aside her deep seeded hatred of all things Cardassian, even when new information comes to light that reminds her that everyone is stained by the Occupation.
