Stardate not given: On what would have been her mother’s 60th birthday, Kira is contacted by Dukat, who claims that he and her mother had been lovers. Kira investigates via the Orb of Time, which sends her to 2346. There, she meets and befriends her mother, Kira Meru, only to be taken along with her when they are chosen as “comfort women” for the Cardassians. Meru catches Dukat’s eye, and to Nerys’ dismay, seems to be taken in by his solicitude. Will Nerys let her anger and disappointment lead her to change the timeline?
