Kira's contacted by Alenis Grem of the Bajoran Central Archives, who's doing research on the former Elemspur detention center. Grem has proof Kira was once detained there, but she's sure it isn't true. When the only remaining living inmate recognizes her, Kira decides to travel to the Archives to sort things out. But she never arrives. While the crew searches for her, Kira awakes on Cardassia. She's been turned into a Cardassian, and is told she served as a spy on Bajor, whose long term memory was altered to avoid discovery. Her name is Iliana Ghemor, daughter of legate Tekeny Ghemor. Though she denounces the situation as preposterous as first, she starts having serious doubts when Entek of the Obisidian Order provides more convincing proof.

's original idea for this episode revolved around O'Brien discovering that he was a deep-cover Cardassian operative who had replaced the 'real' O'Brien twenty years previously and had had O'Brien's real memories implanted into his own mind. This would have meant that the O'Brien seen throughout Star Trek: The Next Generation
(1987) and this series was actually a Cardassian spy. Wolfe ran into trouble with this idea when he had to try to explain how a Cardassian and a human woman (Keiko) could have a fully human child (Molly). At this point, Wolfe modified the idea so that it revolved around Kira instead of O'Brien. See more
