    Waltz was amazing, I just thought having him both be nuts and possessed undermined a lot of the multi faceted personality they showed before. I'd have rather seen him rationalize his way into total evil with his usual self focused morals and personality than have both of those "excuses."

The way I've always seen Gul Dukat is that he's not 100% evil. But the part of him not being evil makes the evil he does do so much worse. If he was 100% you could write him off as a bad guy and be done with him. He could have been a better person but decisions he made along the way narrowed his options. His defeats almost always came about due to his character flaws...not by chance, not by divine intervention...he usually sowed the seeds for every defeat he ever had (and all those Cardassians murdered by the Dominion in the last days of the war...even that's on his head...he destroyed the empire by seeking an alliance between the Domion and Cardassians)

Gul Dukat's that guy who if history had gone another way he could have been seen as a great man. But his ego and his pettiness and his bizarre desire to be loved by the Bajorans he oppressed were always his undoing.
