* LesCollaborateurs: Several Bajorans worked for the Cardassian government during the occupation. Their punishment for this is permanent exile from Bajor. Kira thinks that's ''way'' too generous.

* TooDumbToLive: Kai Opaka knew the location of the resistance base because her son was a member. The logical conclusion is that her son told her of his whereabouts, which is a huge no-no when fighting a guerrilla war.

* TheQuisling: Subverted, ironically enough. Everyone involved in collaboration either claimed or actually were trying to save Bajoran lives.

* IDidWhatIHadToDo: How Kubus lives with his actions working for the Cardassians.

to:

* TheExile: Many Bajorans who collaborated with the Cardassians fled with them to Cardassia Prime.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: How Kubus lives with his actions working for the Cardassians. Notably, he clearly is just hanging onto this rationalization.


Added DiffLines:

* TheQuisling: Subverted, ironically enough. Everyone involved in collaboration either claimed or actually were trying to save Bajoran lives.
** Kubus is, arguably, a {{Downplayed}} example of this as he's clearly grief stricken and remorseful about his actions. None of this matters to Major Kira, though.

She's not done causing people misery just yet. As Kira finds out when Kobus Oak tries leaving on a ship for Bajor. Turns out Winn has granted the traitorous Bajoran sanctuary. Heading for Odo's office, she finds out Winn spent ten minutes talking with Kobus before accessing something on Odo's console.

That something was information on the Kendra Valley Massacre, the death of 42 Bajoran resistance members when a collaborator named Prylar Bek sold them out. Winn saunters into the office again, asking to speak to Kira alone.

Kira is of course pissed about her offering a collaborator sanctuary. Well, the shifty Vedek has her reasons. Kobus has given her the name of the collaborator who caused the Kendra Valley Massacre. Turns out it wasn't Prylar Bek after all. The traitor is none other than ''Vedek Bareil''.

Kira naturally doesn't buy a word of this. Between a traitor like Kobus and a snake like Winn, she has little reason to. The two strike a tentative deal. Kira will investigate these claims, and she'll report her findings to Winn.

It's time to confront Bareil over this. With as much reluctance as can be expected, he reveals why he sold the resistance out. It was either sacrifice 42 resistance members, or let 1200 civilians perish.
