* WritersCannotDoMath: We're told that only 10 million Bajorans died in the occupation. A large number to be sure, but for fifty years of a worldwide genocide it's shockingly low.

* LateArrivalSpoiler: This is where we learn the station's original Cardassian name, Terok Nor. It's a minor plot twist for just this episode, but goes on to be common knowledge to characters and the audience for years after.

* 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.

Rugal isn't an orphan after all. His father, Kotan Pa'Dar, is on his way. Finding the timing way beyond a coincidence, Sisko gives him the runabout. The two head for the orphanage where Rugal was left eight years ago. Complete with Garak demonstrating an odd knack at record retrieval and computer knowledge for a simple tailor.
