I'm happy that Kira has finally returned to the forefront. With Sisko gone, she's the commanding officer- but even during the relaunch itself she has sometimes gotten far less 'screentime' than is typical.
I love her sticking to her guns and forcing the Federation into action. Just hope things don't get too dark. What with in the future with the huge war with the Borg, and problems with Andor. I am weary of war in Star Trek, and hold out hope that this conflict with the Ascendants will be handled differently.
Looking very forward to how the council responds, and what exactly 'the Hand', 'the Voice' and 'The Fire' do
