* AbusiveParents: It's suggested that Proka Migdal was emotionally abusive towards Rugal, taking out his hatred of Cardassians on him. (This may be partly why, in contrast to ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'''s "Suddenly Human," which has a similar premise, Sisko eventually sends the boy back to his biological family.)
* HeyItsThatVoice: You most likely won't recongnise his face from the Cardassian make up, but the voice of Pa'Dar is undeniably that of the man who [[Series/{{Soap}} killed Peter Campbell]].

Parked at his usual table, Bashir is having another back and forth with Garak. Trying to smoke out if the shifty Cardassian is really just a humble tailor, or a Cardassian spy.

Garak's attention however is quickly drawn to an arriving Bajoran and his son. His ''Cardassian'' son. When Garak tries making conversation with the boy, he grabs his hand and bites him.

Rugal has been raised by his father to hate everything Cardassian. From their food(Though it just tastes bad in general) to the atrocities they committed during the occupation.

Bashir meanwhile is looking into things. Talking to the trader who brought Rugal to the station, he tries avoiding the question. But eventually reveals he doesn't like the way Proka is raising him. Raising him to hate everything about himself.

A Bajoran man visits the station with his adopted Cardassian son, who assaults Garak. Dukat contacts Sisko and asks him to investigate the situation, because the boy was left behind on Bajor when the Cardassians pulled out. He claims that he has been trying to locate all such orphans and return them to their parents, but as Sisko looks into the matter further, and Dr. Bashir and Garak go to Bajor to investigate, it becomes clear that the matter is much more complicated.

A Parked at his usual table, Bashir is having another back and forth with Garak. Trying to smoke out if the shifty Cardassian is really just a humble tailor, or a Cardassian spy.

Garak's attention however is quickly drawn to an arriving
Bajoran man visits and his son. His ''Cardassian'' son. When Garak tries making conversation with the boy, he grabs his hand and bites him.

Garak is fine, and Bashir delivers the odd story to the Ops crew. And not a minute after he does, none other than Gul Dukat hails
the station with his adopted to seek information about the incident. While suspicious of how the info got to him so quickly, Dukat quickly shifts the point. The boy, Rugal, is a Cardassian son, who assaults Garak. war orphan. And Dukat wants Sisko to do a little investigating on him.

Rugal has been raised by his father to hate everything Cardassian. From their food(Though it just tastes bad in general) to the atrocities they committed during the occupation.

Bashir meanwhile is looking into things. Talking to the trader who brought Rugal to the station, he tries avoiding the question. But eventually reveals he doesn't like the way Proka is raising him. Raising him to hate everything about himself.

While treating Garak's hand in Sickbay, he brings up an interesting point when Bashir mentions Dukat: Dukat was responsible for the withdrawal of Cardassia from Bajor. So why is he suddenly so interested in one random war orphan?

Talking with Dukat again, he requests he looks up if Rugal has any living relatives. At which point, Bashir sticks his foot in his mouth by interrupting the conversation and giving Dukat a harsh questioning. He thinks Dukat is lying...he just doesn't have any real proof or basis yet. Hence, Sisko warns him to not open his mouth without proof again.

Bashir's night just keeps getting better when Garak appears in his room in the middle of the night. He wants to go to Bajor with Bashir. So, he has to ask Sisko for a runabout...in the middle of the night. With very vague reasoning. Sisko is understandably annoyed. Until ops
contacts him with a message from Dukat.

Sisko and asks gives him to investigate the situation, because runabout. The two head for the boy orphanage where Rugal was left behind eight years ago. Complete with Garak demonstrating an odd knack at record retrieval and computer knowledge for a simple tailor.

In orbit, Bashir has had enough. He shuts the ships engines down, and demands Garak quit giving him the runaround. Garak decides to quiz him
on Bajor the details instead: Pa'Dar was one of the most notable civilian leaders at the time, and was involved in the decision to evacuate Bajor; Gul Dukat lost his job as prefect when that happened, so he hates Pa'Dar; and now, mysteriously, this boy turns up, and Dukat coincidentally finds out it is Pa'Dar's long lost son.

Pa'Dar arrives on
the Cardassians pulled out. station to claim Rugal. Explaining that on Rugal's fourth birthday, their home was destroyed by a bomb. Pa'Dar assumed his son perished in the explosion. He claims tries to show Rugal mementos of his childhood, but he's not interested. He remembers nothing about Pa'Dar, and he doesn't want to go back to Cardassia.

In Sisko's office, Pa'Dar and Proka rip into each other over who should get custody of Rugal. Sisko agrees to arbitrate the hearing. And just to add the cherry on top on the sundae, Gul Dukat has arrived on [=DS9=].

Claiming
that he has been trying to locate all such orphans and return them to their parents, but as Sisko looks into only the matter further, and Dr. interest of the children in mind, Dukat decides to sit in on the hearing. With Bashir and Garak go digging through files, Sisko tries stalling for time in the hearing by having Pa'Dar revisit eight years ago.

Grilling Dukat on whether he knew about the orphanage, he naturally denies any knowledge. The issue being the Cardassian officer who brought Rugal to the orphanage knew his name. She knew he wasn't an orphan. And she was attached to Terok Nor eight years ago. And who was in charge of Terok Nor eight years ago?

Gul Dukat. The whole thing was a dirty play against Pa'Dar, his political rival. Dukat storms out without confirming or denying this.

With that resolved, Sisko turns custody of Rugal over to Pa'Dar, and they return to Cardassia.
