[[WMG: An alternate way the Dominion War could have ended.]]
p.s. not complaining about how it did, just having fun with some ideas
*The Borg attack the Dominion, they assimilate the clone breeding centers and begin chugging out drones. The Borg determine they cannot assimilate Changelings and therefore declare an open hail that they will exterminate them. The Borg smash through the Jemhdar Wolf 359 style. To save the Founders Sisko must first pick up Captain Picard who will function as an ambassador to the Borg, if that fails Sisko is to use the Defiant to destroy the Borg cube. Sisko and his crew do everything they can to fight the borg. It ends up with just Sisko and Picard on the bridge of the Defiant throwing everything they have at the Borg...to no avail. The Borg over power the Defiant. Sisko programs in ramming speed, Picard tells him to stop and open a hail. Sisko wants to fire, Picard pulls rank and Sisko reigns himself in. Picard gives a Picard speech admitting that resistance is futile, they will win, but if there is any of me, and of the hundreds of federation citizens you've assimilated within you then you must see that there is another way, a better way. Yadda yadda he lays on the Picard speech. The Borg cube responds that it must go ponder what has been said and the Cube flies away. The crew of the Defiant beam down, and Odo rejoins his people. The Female Changeling comes up and agrees to peace.
* Actually Odo could have ended the war easily. He just had to say to the Founders I'll come home IF you remove all forces from the Alpha Quadrant and agree to a galactic peace treaty with the Federation. He puts on his tuxedo and Boom, war over.
* Admiral Ross successfully takes over the Federation in his coup. Sisko is locked away. Major Kira leads a covert commando force right into Starfleet HQ and rescues him. They go back to Bajor. The Federation now falls to infighting. The Dominion begins to pounce. Sisko activates his Emmisary card and the Bajoran government enlists the remaining Masquis to form a renegade army that goes after the Dominion themselves.
**Along the way Worf decides to get the sword of Kales and unite the Klingons behind Sisko.
*** In the end the Defiant is piloted by the now renegade Sisko and his crew who are now more anti-hero types. The Defiant smashes through the Dominion lines and orbits the homeworld of the Founders. As the Founder gloat at him, what will one little ship be able to do against a whole planet. BOOM the Defiant fires a Genesis Torpedo! Nuff said.

* He may have realizied the bomb might kill or injure him if he was close enough when it went off, or that since he's a [[{{ProudWarriorRaceGuy}} Klingon]] killing Kirk in a sneak attack would be very dishonorable.

In "Whispers", the episode immediately following, he's been replaced by a replicate. The replicate drinks a ''ton'' of coffee.

To the Bajorans baseball would not only be the national past time for the entire planet, it would actually be a religious observation. Each vedek temple would form a team to play in the league and each temple would have a baseball field, the bigger temples would be full on stadiums. Whichever temples wins The World Series gets to name the next Kai. Before each game a vedek would give a speech about the history of baseball, and how the Emissary used the lessons of baseball to explain linear time to the Prophets. Hot dogs and beer would become like the communion wafers.

* I assume she is the one who pulled the plug on the Defiant project after the third or fourth time the ship tore itself apart in trails. So when Sisko was put out to pasture at DS9 he probably harbored alot of anger at Shelby for it, and then he had to cowtow to Locutous as well.

* Most of the Ferengi we see on DS9 are merchants. Those are the ones that are all about profit all the time. There are MUCH more military-oriented Ferengi out there that aren't nearly as concerned about "profit". The episode The Magnificent Ferengi gives us a SMALL look. They had technology roughly equivalent to the Federation. The non-merchants out there in ships are probably more like pirates (in fact, see the Ferengi pirates 2 centuries later on Enterprise). The Ferengi were in fact flanderized rather severely.

During TNG Worf regularly got his butt kicked by the villain of the week, to the point that it has become an internet meme. But by DS9 he is so tough that he can take down a whole squad of genetically engineered super-soldiers one-by-one until they just give up! How did he get so tough, especially now that he is approaching middle-aged (though it is possible that he is actually entering the Klingon prime.) The answer is in TNG: Ethics. After a failed spinal surgery an obscure Klingon secondary neural network kicks in. Since this system is an evolutionary adaptation for the survival of an injured individual, fight or flight would be a factor. Using this system is probably like a permanent adrenaline boost, allowing Worf to quickly relearn to walk (he was back on duty in the next episode.) This permanent supercharge boosted Worf's physical abilities as well. A few seasons later in TNG: Parallels he had already progressed from a skilled swordsman (somewhat better than Duras) to winning a prestigious, empire-wide, bat'leth tournament.

[[WMG: Tiron and Brunt are actually the same person]]
At the end of Meridian, Tiron tells Quark "I don't know how, and I don't know when, but I will ruin you". They established a rich man who usually gets what he wants, but he never does anything...
...Until you realize that he's played by Jeffery Coombs, who also plays Brunt and Weyoun (Weyoun isn't part of this WMG as I thought of it, but that doesn't mean he can't be). Now who is Brunt? He's the person who's always had it out for Quark and even revoked his business lisance for a short time. He was also first shown in late season three, while Tiron was only shown in an episode earlier in that season. Coincidence? I think not. I say after swearing to get back at Quark, he used his vast wealth to be surgically altered to look like a ferrengi, then got himself into the FCA via some well-placed bribes and afterwards did everything he could to make Quark suffer.

Bashir's parents were constantly changing jobs, so it is unlikely they would have been able to accrue enough finances to afford the expense of such intensive therapy. The therapy took place on Adigeon Prime, a planet outside the Federation, and therefore the technicians performing the operation would have required monetary compensation, not the credits that are only good within the Federation. It has been established that the ad-hoc currency between space-faring economies is gold-pressed latinum, something the average Federation citizen doesn't usually have or need, and it is unlikely the Bashirs would have access to, at least in large amounts. However, an organization as powerful and most likely as well-funded as Section 31 would be able to afford such an operation. It had also been stated by Sloan in "Inquisition" that they had been observing Bashir for a long while. Section 31 approached the Bashirs with the offer of the operations, with the agreement that they would raise their son in such a way to be amenable to joining Section 31 when they felt he was ready[[SecretOrganizationCravingIntelligentEnigmaticTropersYonder .]] Throughout the series, Bashir mentions that his parents strongly disapproved of his considering a career in tennis and their encouragement in his decision to join Starfleet (most of their recruits are from Starfleet). His interest in spy literature may have been introduced by his parents, wanting him to have a certain romanticism towards the profession. Richard and Amsha didn't ''accidentally'' reveal his enhancements to his colleagues and Zimmerman, but were ordered to by Section 31, who hoped that Bashir would become isolated and have no one to turn to but S31. However, his colleagues pretty much just shrugged and told him to throw darts from further back. Richard chose to come through for his kid and make that prison deal so Julian could live his life on his own terms, at least until Sloan came for him.

** Consider [[StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch Ethan Locken]], who is also genetically altered and whose catalyst for joining was instigated by S31, definitely making this MoreThanMindControl. Perhaps Bashir was the prototype...

[[WMG: Commander Shelby and Benjamin Sisko worked together]]
Shelby was in all likelihood the person put in charge of the Borg desk at Starfleet. She was probably Sisko's superior on the Defiant project.
* I assume she is the one who pulled the plug on the Defiant project after the third or fourth time the ship tore itself apart in trails. So when Sisko was put out to pasture at DS9 he probably harbored alot of anger at Shelby for it, and then he had to cowtow to Locutous as well.
