Re: Why was Sisko assigned to DS9?
Leyton recommended Sisko as the CO of DS9 long before the Dominion was a threat, before the wormhole was even discovered. It's unlikely Leyton was considering a coup as early as 2369.
I didn't say anything about the Dominion. I said the Cardassians. Remember, during season 6 of TNG, things weren't exactly rosy with them. Hence, my earlier post.
