We how about this...? Was she a security guard? You are right about women on the Star Trek shows. While TOS had no female security guards, the others did. They did whatever the guys did but, you are right, they almost never go knocked out or hurt. I cannot recall them ever going toe to toe with a bad guy... And though they are supposed to have some kind of martial arts training or something, she did really poorly fighting Odo. A neck chop from him would have done the smae thing to her.
