The Orb 8: Trust In Self and Faith / by Trek fm

Kira Nerys.

She grew up under Cardassian oppression, learned to fight for her feedom and beliefs, and came to trust the Prophets implicitly. After breaking free of the Occupation she found herself fighting what she saw as a new battle for freedom—this time against the Federation. Kira Nerys’s life was defined by difficult positions, but through it all she held steadfast in her convictions and beliefs. In this episode of The Orb, hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing look at the growth of Kira from hellish childhood to liberator of Cardassia, how she learned to temper her views and accept others, and why she is perhaps the best female character in Star Trek.
