* Alternately, the reason Mirror!Bashir was augmented was because he was a useless slave made useful by being augmented to fight in gladiator like entertainment.

[[WMG: Why the Dominion War isn't mentioned in the Visitor.]]

Because the war never turned hot. They're still in a very long, uncomfortable cold war with them - without Sisko's input events happened differently. The Dominion is building up forces, possibly already aligned with Cardassia (all though without his rivalry with Sisko Dukat's motivations might have been changed slightly) and the Federation appeases them over and over again ... by the time they stand up to them it might be too late.

** I think it's actually much more likely that Sisko and the events of "In the Pale Moonlight" specifically are what threw off their war projections. The Jack Pack predicted that the Romulans would join the war against the Dominion, yes, but only after close to a year had passed (Season seven timeframe) and the Federation and the Klingons were that much weaker, and thus the alliance as a whole would have been in a weaker position. Their predictions were based on statistical analysis of the powers themselves, which would have included the Dominion '''not''' planning to invade Romulus yet specifically because they didn't want to scare the Romulans into the war, and thus the Romulans would have had no reason to join the war early (Presumably, the Jack Pack saw them joining the war in a year when the Dominion began gaining the definitive upper hand and the Romulans realized that the Klingons and Federation were really going down and they would soon find themselves facing the Dominion alone). They could have never foreseen Sisko manufacturing evidence or taking part in a deceptive plot to trick the Romulans into the war, both because their statistics don't deal with minute individual factors, and because even if it did they had no data to say that Sisko would have been willing to do such a thing (It doesn't matter how smart you are, if you don't have the right data you can't have the right conclusions). This is one of the few points in the entire series where one person really changed everything, where '''Sisko''' changed everything, and it's a point that they couldn't have predicted.

[[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.

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.
