Warpspeed Roundtable

Last time around we asked:

If they told you a story, which of these three characters would you believe?

  1. Garak
  2. Mudd
  3. Terran Empire Lorca

Gary said: Probably Lorca, but Garak would tell the better story.
Ken said: Definitely not Mudd.

This time around we ask
In “Kayshon, his eyes open,” we learn that Starfleet Command believes someone is working with the pakleds. Who do you think it is?
