** In Universe: While Kira (and most Bajorans) see Dukat as AdolfHitler, Dukat sees himself as more of an Oskar Schindler.

** The addition of Worf. Necessary upgrade to the cast? A little testosterone in a cerebral show? Ron Moore's obnoxious AuthorAvatar?

** The addition of Worf. Necessary upgrade to the cast? A little testosterone in a cerebral show? Ron Moore's obnoxious AuthorAvatar? Though at least everyone tends to agree that his no longer suffering TheWorfEffect (at Michael Dorn's own request, having gotten understandably tired of it) was a big improvement.

** Quark in "The Siege of AR-558." Quark's mercenary and cowardly nature suddenly doesn't seem all that bad compared to the Federation's brutality in the name of idealism. In fact, Quark comes across as the OnlySaneMan. [[spoiler: And later he guns down a Jem'hadar soldier as he busts into the infirmary Nog is staying at, undermining Quark's own statements in the face of having to do what's necessary to protect one's own, but from the look on his face after he fires the phaser, he seems to realize that himself.]]

** In “Trials and Tribble-ations” there’s a throwaway joke that Jadzia finds Spock (and not James Kirk) attractive. In 2017, Creator/TerryFarrell (Jadzia) announced her engagement to director Creator/AdamNimoy, son of Spock’s actor Creator/LeonardNimoy.

** The Maquis as pissy and entitled Federation civilians who can't accept that peace comes at a high price, or a group of settlers who had their lands switched out for a supposed peace that is in no way enforced by the Cardassians who used fear and murders to try to scare them away.

Another option "bit from column A & B", depending on which colony they come from.

**** It's actually a common misconception that all Vorta are clones...they aren't. The Vorta are said to be experts at cloning, not all clones. It's hinted that only Vorta that prove themselves to be exceptional in some way are rewarded with a form of immortality through cloning. Weyoun *specifically* said that there was an original Weyoun who was not a clone.

** "Facets" and "Profit and Lace" both show Quark being quite comfortable assuming the role of a female. In fact, in "Facets" it's implied that he agreed to assume the memories of one of Dax's previous hosts only because it was a female host, but insists that no one know about it. This creates the possibility that Quark is actually a transwoman (albeit likely a lesbian, given that his attraction to females has never been in question) covering up her true nature in a patriarchal society with strict gender enforcement.

Quark normally presents himself as a proud traditional Ferengi, but persuades himself towards more progressive tendencies (for a Ferengi) on a regular occasion. He usually blames this on his exposure to the Federation, but more often than not, it's because he is a good person who wants to help others.

* NothingIsScarier: The Breen. It's a testament to the writing/costume design, etc. of [=DS=]9 that the Breen are so unsettling and so memorable, as we learn almost nothing about them. It could even be argued they're ''less'' fleshed-out than ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager's]]'' legendarily one-dimensional foes The Kazon... and yet the end result is positively chilling.
