I've been wondering if we really need two images of him. Which one do you prefer? I like the one where he's on the exploding bridge, not just because I uploaded it. -- Tough Little Ship 18:43, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

RelativesEdit

Seskal's rank is unknown, as the script of "When It Rains..." describes him as both a Gul and a Glinn. Vaughn Armstrong had played another Cardassian, Danar, in the first season episode "Past Prologue". It is possible that the two characters are related.
Maybe he's related to Fresca Seska as well.

Removing speculation Edit

I am removing the following speculation, as it takes a long time to explain how it could even be possible, and is in the end based only on similarity of names that are still different (I know a lot of people with similar but different names to mine, they are not related to me):

Seskal could also be related to the Star Trek: Voyager character Seska, as their names are quite similar. As Seska was a Cardassian agent reporting on the Maquis it is possible she altered her Cardassian name to fit within the Bajoran language naming structure. We are never told whether Seska was her first name or family name. As Chakotay constantly referred to her as Seska and she was his partner, we can assume she was using it as a first-name, however, other Bajoran characters in Star Trek as a whole have had their names mangled by non-Bajorans (Ro Laren is referred to as Ensign Laren until she corrects Jean-Luc Picard, and the Bajoran crewman Tal Celes is referred to as Tal by her friends. Marika Wilkarah, the recovered Bajoran Borg, was known as Marika, rather than her presumed first name by Bajoran convention, Willkarah.) and this may have been another case of that.

In addition, this speculation and explanation is about 7/8 on Seska, and would be more fitting to her page (I'd still remove it there, though). --OuroborosCobra talk 00:19, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

While I agree that the above speculation is too far-fetched, it could be noted that the name Seska could be the female equivalent of the name Seskal. Daskill 09:36, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

It is just as far fetched and baseless. We simply don't know enough about Cardassian naming conventions. --OuroborosCobra talk 09:42, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
