Re: Dukat attracted to Nerys?

Dukat was clearly attracted to Nerys. Because she resisted him, which made her higher value to him than the women he could get just by being in his position. It would have been a bigger victory to bed her.

It took 5 pages to get it, but this is the best explanation I've seen in this thread. It really is that simple.

Someone else said almost that 3 pages ago citing Tracy Scroggin's sexual assault on the Chief.

Re: Dukat attracted to Nerys?

In their own way, they actually got along rather well. Kai Winn was much worse to me.

Re: Dukat attracted to Nerys?

I never understood why they did get along as well as they sometimes did. It's not like Dukat was some bumbling bureaucrat who'd had some desk job during the Occupation, and it's not like he had ANY redeeming qualities that encouraged any allowance making.

Re: Dukat attracted to Nerys?

She had to NOT MURDER all Cardassians with unilateral equanimity.

There was no difference between Kira restraining herself from vivisecting Cardassian Gandhi or Cardassian Hitler.

It was a perfect hate.

Re: Dukat attracted to Nerys?

That makes sense if I look at it through the totally me oriented view of alternating being irritated with her for hating on nice Cardassians and irritated with her for not hating on Dukat enough.

Re: Dukat attracted to Nerys?

Bajoran PMS is perhaps not what you think Bajoran PMS is.

Sneezing instead of morning sickness.

Perfect serenity so that the baby slides out instead of screaming while the baby rends its way out?

Quite inhuman.

Yep. That's also my in-universe explanation for the pah wraiths. The bajorans excrete their hormones and they turn into non-corporeal beings.

Re: Dukat attracted to Nerys?

And that Meru did what was necessary kind of makes Dukat her stepfather which makes his interest in her all the more creepy... "I bedded her... and her mother.
I'm gonna have to disagree with this. Sure, Meru was with Dukat for 8 years, but it's not as if Kira was living there too and playing house with them. She was with her real father. Dukat might've been bedding her mother but I really doubt he had any reason to think of Kira as a daughter.

It is creepy in many ways, but maybe he just saw the family resemblance and was attracted to Kira, too.

I think his attraction to her is pretty apparent, I wouldn't even question that. I mean, he repeatedly hits on her, uses Ziyal to try to impress Kira and get her to come over and play house with him, buys her that dress, etc. I recall him making some comment about her being attracted to men in positions of power, and then something about how he'd better get back in charge of things (implying she'd find him more attractive). There was never any doubt in my mind that Dukat was attracted to Kira.

Dukat was clearly attracted to Nerys. Because she resisted him, which made her higher value to him than the women he could get just by being in his position. It would have been a bigger victory to bed her.
This.
