Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Rewatch: "Shakaar"

Winn is made First Minister, and her actions force the Shakaar Resistance Cell to get the band back together. The DS9 Rewatch meets "Shakaar."

An excerpt:
But the heart of this episode is Kira, the former resistance fighter who has become a bureaucrat against her will because there isn’t anything to fight anymore. Just as Garak declared sadly that he’s a very good tailor, Kira has become a very good bureaucrat, and the only reason she doesn’t succeed here is because Winn is stubborn. But the occupation wasn’t that long ago, and it doesn’t take much to get Shakaar, Furel, Lupaza, and Kira to go back to the old ways of hiding in the hills.
