The Sound of Her Voice
Okay, I admit it – this is here for one reason and one reason alone – pure eye candy! Who could resist Kira in a flapper dress and Odo in white tie and tails?
Tears of the Prophets
In an example of Odo’s ongoing struggle to understand the sometimes subtle nuances of humanoid relationships, a minor disagreement with Kira (one which she’s already forgotten about) leads Odo to believe their fledgling romance is over. This *sweet* scene (that word keeps popping up!) of their reconciliation prompts Odo to remark, “You know, Nerys, observing humanoid relationships and being in one are two very different things.” To which Kira replies “Like night and Day!”
Images in the Sand
Season 7 opens with Odo playfully addressing Kira by her rank – Colonel (and about time she got that promotion!). She’s been running the station for three months while Sisko is on earth, dealing with his emotional fallout over Jadzia’s death. The orbs are dark, the Prophets are silent, the Emissary is gone and the Pagh wraith cult is gaining strength. Plus the Dominion is still out there, ready to deal the Alpha Quadrant a death blow. Not a happy time on DS9
Odo, the man who perennially sees a dark cloud even on the sunniest of days, tries to cheer Kira up. “There’s always hope, Nerys.”
Kira: “Since when did you become an optimist?”
Odo: “It must have been that day in front of Quark’s when we kissed for the first time.”
Kira: “That was some kiss, wasn’t it?”
Odo: “Changed my life.”
. . . sigh . . .
Shadows and Symbols
To add to Kira’s many troubles, the Romulans have secreted weapons to the Bajoran moon they requested to use as a hospital complex, a clear violation of their agreement. Kira is planning to command a squadron of Bajoran sub-impulse vessels to form a blockade against the approaching Romulan warbirds. Clearly a suicide mission. Odo, brooking no argument, informs Kira that he will be on that ship with her. “I was hoping for a long and happy relationship, but I’ll take short and exciting.”
Throughout it’s seven year run, we have seen Odo in this familiar position . . .
