Star Trek makeups: Dejar

DS9: Dejar

In the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode ‘Destiny’ a team of Cardassian scientists is to visit the station to help setup a subspace communications relay in the Gamma Quadrant. Suddenly a Bajoran Vedek brings Sisko a warning from the prophets not to let the Cardassians on the station. The Vedek refers to Trakor’s third prophecy that tells that three vipers will return to their nest in the sky, Deep Space Nine, ultimately leading to the destruction of the Celestial Temple, the wormhole.

Sisko and Kira initially dismiss the warning as only two Cardassians scientists are coming. But when they arrive there are indeed three Cardassians: Ulani Belor, Gilora and Dejar (Jessica Hendra).

Kira begins to believe the prophecy. And when more of the predictions start coming true Sisko must make a choice between his Federation duties and his role as Emissary.

To further complicate the situation it becomes clear that one of the Cardassians is an agent of the Obsidian Order.
