If Kira's mother had hooked up with some Cardassian other than Dukat, perhaps the Prefect that ruled Bajor before him, I would be more forgiving about the episode's other problems.
I basically agree, and that's what I meant earlier when I said that my opinion of the episode varies depending on how much Dukat's involvement annoys me.
It would be a stronger story, I think, if Dukat had been less directly involved.
I do like the meat of the episode, though, which is Kira seeing another angle of the occupation and being forced to admit that she can't judge her mother as harshly as she would like to.

Yep. The man is a menace ;-)
