Long before he was chief of security for Captain Sisko, Odo served in the same position under Gul Dukat during the Cardassian Occupation of Bajor. It was a time when Odo was just beginning his life amongst solids, and as a result his sense of right and wrong were not well developed. He changed a lot in the years that followed, and that change was shared and contrasted with the audience thanks to unusual circumstances that led to Odo reliving key events from seven years prior in “Things Past.”

In this episode of The Orb, hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing discuss the Odo-specific elements of this story as they delve into Odo’s Cardassian background, the line between order and justice, his role in the executions of the Bajorans Ishan, Jillur, and Timor, and how his take on those events changed over time.
