“Kira Nerys, Bajoran liaison officer of Deep Space Nine, has earned criticism for allegedly punching a high ranking member of the Cardassian military. The officer, unnamed in this article for reasons of victim anonymity, has a reputation as a strong supporter of Cardassian rule of Bajor.
‘She should use her words and protest in a calm manner’ an anonymous Bajoran source told the Federation News Service. ‘Bajorans acting like thugs will be just the excuse the Cardassians need to clamp down on our rights. When she hit him, she’s just as bad as he is’.
‘We only want what’s best for Bajor’ Cardassian leader Gul Dukat assures the FNS readers from his office on DS9. ‘It pains me that the Bajoran people are unable to work with us, unable to have a reasonable discussion. Instead they resort to violence.’
In a press conference yesterday Gul Dukat called Major Kira’s actions ‘Unworthy’ and said to his onlookers that ‘Kai Opaka would never condone such an act’.
Gul Dukat and the Dominion representative Weyoun are convening a meeting later today, where they are expected to discuss the rise in anti Dominion activity. As well as Major Kira’s actions.
FNS has been unable to reach Major Kira for a comment. “
