[DS9] Indiscretion

[DS9] Season 4, Episode 5: Indiscretionindiscretion

Rating: 2

Deep Space Nine writers really like throwing Kira and Dukat together, and I understand why. Ostensibly they’re bitter enemies, but there’s enough nuance to both characters for some potentially compelling chemistry. Sometimes they pull it off, but I think Nana Visitor’s performance here is a severe weak link, and the pretty standard plotting doesn’t help “Indiscretion”.
