Kes in DS9? Why not?
Instead of coming up with that silly story in "The Gift", they could have found a way to transport her to DS9 instead.
LOL, I think that would have been waaayyy too contrived, like "small universe" syndrome times 10,000. Nonetheless I have thought about how exactly they'd fit her in. Maybe they could make it so the prophets were actually ascended Ocampa and Kes comes to join them in the wormhole
