Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
A Vedek from a camp Kira was once in as a child comes to the station and gives her a gift: a Dominion transporter. She is transported to Empok Nor, where the Cult of the Pah-Wraiths has set up a community, she is then introduced to their leader: Dukat.
Luckily, Kira is able to knock Dukat out and his own pill, which was fake. He can’t find his decoy pill, and is decidedly shaky when it comes to taking a real one from a tray. The cult realize their mistake and shun Dukat, who escapes via transport.
It is a solid episode, you gotta enjoy Alaimo, he is a great villain. This isn’t the best Dukat story, but it is solid, and it makes him even scarier…now that he seemingly has real faith in something.
