ABOUT THE SERIES

Elim Garak is an agent with the Obsidian Order.

That is the much feared intelligence organization working for the Cardassian government, a group considered "one of the most ruthless and efficient organizations in the quadrant". Cardasssia, for those who are not familiar with the name, is a planet in the Beta Quadrant of the Milky Way galaxy, the same segment of space that includes Earth, a key member of the United Federation of Planets. Since the Cardassian goverment is a militaristic one aiming at extending its authority by intruding into Federation space, the relationship with the Federation is not a happy one and will result in a major war a few years after we first meet Garak.

Our meeting of Garak comes as he presents himself as a "simple tailor" earning a living onboard the large Federation spacestation known as Deep Space Nine (DS9). That huge facility was placed where it was because of an unexplained phenomenom; a seemingly permanent and constant wormhole that allowed near instant transport between the Beta Quadrant at one end and a spot in the Gamma Quadrant at the other, many thousands of light years away. DS9 acted as a guardian to the 'doorway' as well as a powerful representative of the Federation at the edges of its control.

Garak explains to the new lead physician on that facility that he was an exile from Cardassian having earned enmity with the current sitting government there and now forced to ply his trade far from home. It will not take long for that doctor, Bashir, to hear rumors about Garak that painted a considerably different picture. Bashir will learn that Garak is often referred to as simply 'the Spy'. While Garak will eventually admit to having once been a member of the Obsidian Order, the likelihood exists that he is still very much an active operative with them even if he claims to have been forcibly ousted.

The interesting aspect of Garak's status as a member of the Order is fascinating in that whether he is still working for them or not, his activities are such that he seems to be constantly aware of what is going on in and around DS9 and has his fingers and toes involved in lots of interesting subplots.

Good Lines:
- Said by Garak to Worf, "Lying is a skill like any other. And if you want to maintain a level of excellence, you have to practice constantly."
- Said by Garak to Commander Sisko, "The truth is usually just an excuse for lack of imagination."
- When pressed by Dr. Bashir whether Garak's stories were true or not, Garak assures him that "they're all true ... especially the lies."

MY COMMENTS

I was, and still am, a huge Star Trek fan - very much a member of Team Trek in the Trek-vs-Wars debate. I watched The Original Series when it was on back in the 60's (well, the last season at least because being pretty young, my voice in the decision making on what to watch on the sole television was, well, both mute and moot). I watched The Next Generation with a lot of pleasure and then gave Deep Space Nine its time. Since I was well on my way to being the spy-fi fanatic that I am, I was especially taken with Garak and loved every moment he was on the screen.

Garak was deliciously fawning at times and yet always with a gleam in his eye letting us know that he knew we knew how much he really knew about what was going on. And when the Federation's troubles with Cardassia grew and the whole Dominion-Cardassian war exploded towards the end of the series, wow! And through it all, build-up to open conflict to resolution, Garak was there in the background always with his fingers in some pie.

What a hoot!!!
