War Orphans

Story: Cardassians
Written By: Gene Wolande, John Wright and James Crocker
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1993

This is an interesting one. The Cardassians left war orphans on Bajor when the occupation ended; these Cardassians have been raised by Bajorans. One of them arrives on the station and bites Garak, which leads to some investigations into just what is being taught about Cardassians to these children, and whether or not they’ve been abused.
At the same time Garak and Bashir try to investigate the circumstances of this particular boy’s history and adoption. This storyline works because I love Garak in any situation, but the pairing of him and Bashir is always good for fun banter.

All in all, solid outing.
