Moral :
Empathy : You cannot really know a people until you've walked a mile in their shoes.
Factoid : The original plan was to give this episode an ambiguous ending, dangling the possibility that Kira really was, and always had been, a Cardassian disguised as a Bajoran.

Nana Visitor is somewhat claustrophobic, and found this episode incredibly difficult because the Cardassian makeup felt very constricting. In her last scene she literally started ripping the makeup off her face as she ran off the set in panic.

Plotline

Kira is shocked to wake and find herself on Cardassia, with the face of a Cardassian woman. Worse still, Legate Ghemor insists that she is his daughter and that her life as a Bajoran was a ruse designed to allow her to operate as an intelligence officer. As the evidence mounts, Kira must consider the possibility that her entire life has been a lie.
