This article covers a developing story. Continue to check back with us as we will be adding more information as it becomes available.

Summary

  • Nana Visitor personally prevented a love story between her character Kira and Gul Dukat on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
  • Visitor argued with the show’s writers about this storyline and successfully stopped it from happening.
  • She felt strongly against her character having an affair with Dukat, as he was the “worst of the worst,” so the storyline was changed to involve Kira’s mother instead.


Star Trek: Deep Space Nine star Nana Visitor personally prevented a horrible love story between her character, Major Kira Nerys, and Gul Dukat (Mark Alaimo) from happening. The loathsome Dukat spent the 7 seasons of DS9 trying to seduce and bed Kira, who resisted the questionable “charms” of her arch enemy. In the DS9 season 6 episode “Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night,” Kira time-traveled to learn that Dukat had an affair with her mother, Kira Meru (Leslie Hope).

Appearing on The Shuttlepod Show to discuss Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and her career, Nana Visitor told hosts Connor Trinneer, Erica LaRose, and Mark Cartier about the times she argued with DS9‘s writers about storylines. One argument Visitor won stopped Major Kira from having an affair with Gul Dukat. Check out her quote and watch The Shuttlepod Show video at the 41:49 time stamp below:

Dukat was a Cardassian, one of the species that dominated my planet, and he was the worst. He was the worst of the worst. And they wanted me to have an affair with him. I was like, “Other Cardassians, absolutely. Not him. Never him.” So I actually won that one… Maybe they wanted to turn his character… But I couldn’t see it… So it was my mother. They had a relationship.
