 The general consensus among fans is that the reason Nina didn't recognize
 Gato and the reason she was able to keep her relationship secret was that
 her affair with Gato didn't exist until it was suddenly revealed in Episode
 Others say that there were sufficient clues before the revelation,
 indicating that the writers had something like this in mind all along, but
 the problems to which you allude have convinced many that it was not part
 of the original plan.
 The writers claim they planned it all along but, if so, it was damned sloppy.
You know I just have to say one thing, it is higly plausible that she didn't
realize it was Gato when she first saw him. I mean she probably thought he
died in the OYW. Also he was in a Federation suit, as silly as that might
sound it would be odd enough to throw her off realistically. I mean if you
see someon you haven't seen in years, shock is a likely result.
