Story: Ties of Blood and Water
Written By: Edmund Newton, Robbin L. Slocum and Robert Hewitt Wolfe
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
A sequel of sorts to “Second Skin”, we see the return and fate of Tekeny Ghemor. He returns to DS9 at the request of Kira, who would like to use his former position and connections to the Cardassian Dissident movement to disrupt the new Cardassian-Dominion alliance. Two problems stand in the way: Dukat comes to extradite him…and he is dying.
It is a decent episode, some great acting from Visitor, but the episode is just a good episode: not a tremendous one. It is notable for seeing the return of Weyoun, who had died in “To the Death”, but here it is revealed that the Vorta clone themselves ( a clever idea, especially when it really was just an excuse to bring Combs back…thank god they did he is awesome). There is a particularly great scene between Sisko, Dukat and Weyoun. Enjoy.
