Oh, yes, that would be a very Cardassian curse indeed!
Indeed, I can actually hear Dukat or Damar snarling that at an irritant (perhaps Damar would mutter it at Weyoun after the vorta has left the room).
There's a lot to love about this story, from the nickname for the Soldiers of the Union to Macet's recollection of meeting a certain French Starfleeter
. I also gotta say that I loved Spirodopoulos' uneasy reaction to Macet and his attempt to reassure the young human.
It's a wonderful display of someone confronting his prejudices about an entire civilization and coming to terms with the fact that yes, Cardassians can be likable and respected.
