I am asking this as I think I have hit a snag in my watching of DS9.
Kira was born 2343 and joined the Shakaar resistance cell in 2356 (Kira's birth date is an approximation as is her joining the resistance)
So by the time of the Kiessa Monastery massacre Kira is at least (12-14 years).
Legate Tekeny Ghemor is 19 years old, and is one of 400 Cardassian soldiers that participated in the massacre.
By the time of DS9 episode Ties of Blood and Water (5x19) Tekeny is dying and has come to DS9 to be with Kira. Why is there such a significant age difference between the two of them?
Kira looks like a woman in her thirties and Takeny looks like a man in his late years.
Hence my question.
Do Cardassians age significantly faster than Bajorans?
(Or is this one of those “oops” moments that nobody thought about when writing the episode?)
