Synopsis - On what would be her mother's 60th birthday, Kira Nerys receives a message from Dukat, informing her that her mother, Kira Meru, had been his lover. Not wanting to believe him, Nerys feels she must know the truth. With Sisko's blessing, she consults the Orb of time to travel back and learn for herself.

Wrongs Darker Than Death Or Night is a fascinating episode which explores the definition of the word collaborator . Where is the line drawn in hindering freedom for a race to give one's family a better chance for survival in a world where just getting one bowl of soup for an entire family is a struggle? The premise of of a character going back in time to one's own childhood, is similar to the Original Trek Animated episode Yesteryear. This is the third episode which shows us life on the station Terok Nor (it's Cardassian name before Deep Space Nine) during the Occupation. The previous episodes were the second season episode Necessary Evil and the fifth season episode Things Past. This episode depicts Terok Nor brighter that the other episodes, but this could be attributed to that fact that this one takes place earlier than the others and construction on the station still wasn't complete. This is also the second episode to feature that Bajoran Orb of Time, which had been returned by the Cardassians in the fifth season episode Trials And Tribble-ations.
