As the overseer of the Occupation, it isn’t surprising the Dukat would have conceived a child with a Bajoran woman. But that this child would become a driving force in the stories of so many characters is. Through just nine appearances on DS9, Tora Ziyal changed the course of life for not only her father but also Kira, Garak, and others.
In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing take a close look at Ziyal, her introduction in “Indiscretion,” the repercussions her existence had on Dukat’s life back home, her sister-like relationship with Kira, romantic feelings for Garak, and more. Plus, we debate the role her death played in Dukat’s actions from “Sacrifice of Angels” forward.
