The Cardassian talent for obfuscation in full stride.
With subterfuge after subterfuge coming in fast order it is hard to know where one stands, which makes for interesting viewing. There is a cop-out at the end when the guilty party confesses all, but it's not too bad because you've solved the mystery by then.
Having just had a nasty war and occupation on Bajor certainly provides a lot of scope for the dark side of Humanoid nature to be exposed - it was a good choice by the producers.
The performance by Harris Yulin is very good. His character is subtly drawn across a wide range of emotions. What a pity we won't see more of him.
