Re: Religion & DS9

It's a particularly unsexy religion.

They don't have a clue wtf is going on half the time, who the prophets are, what they could possibly want. Plus unlike the problems with reinterpreting static texts and doctrines brand new stuff can happen at any time thanks to the orbs.. only even the people it happens to have no clear idea what it meant. It's only their passivity that keeps them from exploding into a civil war of cult leaders hearing different agendas from the prophets. They are an oddly civil people, to their undoing at times but it's also been a strength.
