Recap / Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 01 E 03 Past Prologue
A Bajoran terrorist tests Kira's loyalties to the Federation when he attempts to rid Bajor of the Federation for good.
This episode provides examples of:
- Blatant Lies: Plain, simple Garak.
- Homoerotic Subtext: Between Garak and Bashir; according to the actors, this was deliberate.
- Karma Houdini: The Duras Sisters slip away scot-free for assisting Tahna.
- Lesser of Two Evils: With Tahna's plan foiled, he's given two choices: Surrender to the Federation, or be handed over to the very pissed off Cardassian forces. He wisely surrenders to the Federation.
- Silent Offer: Garak negotiates the price for a terrorist with two Klingons in this way, using an electronic tablet instead of paper.
