Rebinging Star Trek DS9: The Darkness and the Light

Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 5 episode 11 of Rebinge Deep Space Nine: The Darkness and the Light. Kira has been missing or just a side character for most of this season, but she’s finally coming back (into the light?)! In this episode some of her resistance fighting friends are being brutally murdered and she knows she might be next. There’s a lot of ‘darkness’ and ‘light’ talk in the last part of this episode and I can’t say we followed the entire metaphor, but it’s still a powerhouse episode for Nana Visitor.

The Darkness and the Light

Somebody is killing resistance fighters and Odo is concerned that Kira is in danger. He tries to track down the killers as Kira’s friends are knocked off one by one. Kira can only stand back and watch for so long – at some point she’s going to get herself into the action.
