*** Rom might be smarter than Quark in one sense: he realizes how bad he is at obtaining profit and [[KnowWhenToFoldEm found a new job at the first opportunity]]. Quark made mention of his narrow profit margins on a few occasions and even those profits came because Sisko admitted he "forgets" to collect Quark's rent for the bar and holosuites.

** Dukat took Kira's mother as his mistress during the Occupation, and goes on to be pretty obviously interested in Kira herself.

** Dukat took Kira's mother as his mistress during the Occupation, and goes on to be pretty obviously interested in Kira herself. This is basically the equivalent of Adolf Hitler hitting on Anne Frank.

** "Looking For Par'Mok In All the Wrong Places". It's the return of Quark's Klingon ex-wife (and [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan favorite]]) Grilka! And she's starting to show romantic feelings for Quark! Unfortunately, Worf falls in LoveAtFirstSight with her. Even more unfortunately, the plot's basically a rehash of ''Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac'' with Worf in the role of Cyrano for Quark. A couple of problems with this: 1) Quark and Grilka already know each other, so one wouldn't think he'd really need a Cyrano, and 2) Worf has always despised Quark and continues to do so at the end of the episode (the last thing Worf has to say about Quark here is, "[[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim What does she see in that parasite?]]" Worse still, the whole Quark/Grilka story is sidelined [[StrangledByTheRedString just to bring Worf and Jadzia together.]] Even worse, Jadzia actually insults Grilka (albeit not to her face), contemptuously referring to her as a "statue", which combined with Worf's sustained contempt for Quark, puts a really ugly spin on Worf and Jadzia helping Quark to get together with Grilka. Worst of all, just a few episodes later in the abysmal "Let He Who Is Without Sin", Quark's back to chasing women on Risa, and [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome Grilka's never seen or mentioned again.]]

** O'Brien, who's suffered such indignities as [[{{Doppelganger}} abduction/replacement]], arrest and [[KangarooCourt trial]], death, arrest and [[FakeMemories 20 years imprisonment in 20 hours]], threatened by his [[DemonicPossession possessed wife]], etc. Kira's suffered just as bad, if not worse. And Odo gets his fair share of suffering as well.) The writers even said "O'Brien must suffer" at least once a season because they thought Colm Meaney was great in that kind of story.

** Garak becomes one too at the end of the series. His father died, barely acknowledging him. His mother was murdered in cold blood by Jem'Hadar. Most of his contacts/friends were dead. The defeat of the Dominion was a PyrrhicVictory for Cardassia, and he knows it. He didn't get to kill the Female Changeling who started it all either, which would not normally be something to feel sorry for him over, but by this point, she had killed hundreds of millions of innocent people, most of them Cardassians. The fact that he had previously come real close to killing off the changelings, albeit at a cost, probably just made this worse.

** Armin Shimerman and Max Grodenchikhad previously played Ferengi in TNG's "The Last Outpost" and "Captain's Holiday". Marc Alaimo also played the very first Cardassian, Gul Macet, in TNG's "The Wounded". (Word of God said that Macet and Dukat are [[UncannyFamilyResemblance cousins]].)

** "The Darkness and the Light": It's perfectly okay to kill civilians to get [[OccupiersOutOfOurCountry Occupiers Out of Your Country]].
*** Rather: It's perfectly okay to kill every single member of the species that is occupying your country as long as you drive them out in the end. Including completely innocent bystanders who never did a thing to earn their fate.

*** In Universe, Sisko was with Eddington saving the rest of the Maquis and giving Eddington a pretty good Reason You Suck speech. At the premier of First Contact, Avery Brooks leaned over to Michael Dorn and said "I don't remember giving you permission to take out the Defiant that day."

*** Quark gives an epic speech to Sisko about how Humans used to enslave and denigrate people while the Ferengi just want to make money. It distinguishes them from the "Yankee Trader" analogy of TNG and gives them their own morals.

** Morn. We nearly always saw him sitting silently at the bar having a drink, but his popularity was immense. Lampshaded in one episode where Morn was away from the station on business and Quark installed a hologram of him because people didn't come to the bar as much when Morn was absent. He never speaks on screen. He is frequently described as talking Quark's ear off every chance he gets, we learn that he has troubles with his mother, and an episode dedicated to his seeming death reveals that he practiced Bahtleth with Worf and used to be a successful bank robber. He also has a lovely singing voice.

** The Maquis also count at the end. They attack both the Cardassians and the Federation, won't negotiate, are constantly attacking any Cardassian because they are Cardassian with indiscriminate terrorist attacks to - in Eddington's words - "make the Cardassian empire crumble." It was ''their'' attacks that in part contributed to Cardassia joining the Dominion, and they still don't take responsibility for their actions (or at least, Eddington is incredibly reluctant to, and blames everything on Sisko). Even when Sisko saves the last few Marquis members after a bloody massacre, they still maintain their self-righteous approach.

* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Weyoun is very popular with fans, but virtually all the characters in the show dislike him (understandably, given that he's an agent of the Dominion and a SmugSnake).
