Iliana Ghemor

Story: Second Skin
Written By: Robert Hewitt Wolfe
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1994

“Second Skin” is like a continuation of the arc for Kira started in “Duet”. It deals with her slowly coming to terms with the fact that…Cardassians aren’t all evil…
Cardassians kidnap Kira and she wakes up looking like a Cardassian. She is told that the real Kira was killed during the occupation, and that she was sent as a replacement to spy on the resistance movement on Bajor. But she doesn’t buy a word of it.

It has some great performances and a solid story, with some decent twists and turns…and of course how can I find fault with any episode that gives Garak a great deal to do. All in all it is a great episode.
