I think I’m with you more or less. I don’t mind an intelligent, appointed Senate that takes their work seriously and isn’t explicitly partisan. I’d also like to see the regional representation improved, and the term limits should probably be way shorter.

I don’t think that’s necessarily surprising nor undesirable, especially since you had to say “almost.”

Why was Dukat never arrested when visiting DS9?

A who’s who of Cardassian officers and Bajoran collaborators (Darhe’el, for example) were persona non grata at best, and arrested to face charges of war crimes at worst. I can imagine that, if there were no specific incidents which could be linked to Gul Dukat, perhaps he and other Cardassian officials would be tolerated…...

The political situation in the region is incredibly complicated - if Bajor is interested in prosecuting, they risk a renewed conflict with Cardassia, which neither they nor the Federation particularly want. On top of that, many Bajorans are skeptical of the Federation and its intentions, at least in the early days.

Plus…did Dukat ever “visit” DS9 (as in, physically board the station) without explicit authorization from the command staff?

Thanks for that - I thought of “Civil Defense” but couldn’t remember the exact circumstances of that pop-in.

The Bajor-Cardassia peace talks occur just six episodes later, so it’s easy to imagine that the peace process was well underway by that point.

And, of course, Dukat was there to “help”.

In “Duet,” Kira acknowledges to Sisko that her detention of Dar’heel violates policy, and may in fact be illegal.

Return their original forehead prosthetics!

A behind-the-scenes photo of Terry Farrell in the TNG Trill makeup.

She never did - they canned it in favour of the shots after screen/make-up testing.

Edit: Bonus, kind-of-gross context!

Initially, the DS9 writing staff simply didn’t like Michael Westmore’s alterations to make the Odan headpiece look more feminine. Apparently, after Terry Farrell had put on the Odan forehead appliance, someone looked at her and said to Westmore, “What did you do to her head, she used to be beautiful?” Instead of changing species, as they’d already come to like the idea of an “old man”, a person with centuries of experience to guide Sisko, Westmore suggested to “just give her spots like we gave Famke,” who played a Kriosian in TNG: “The Perfect Mate”. This make-up was used on all Trill afterwards.

I suppose it could make sense if they’re looking to break up the company and keep the streamer.

It does seem like bundling might be the new strategy for the non-Netflix, non-Disney players.

She dated and split up with Raffi between seasons one and two.

We generally don’t protect spoilers after about a week. In this case, it’s been nearly a year.
