Sirtis at times is nothing more than a little gossip queen in regards to Trek. I suppose that is what her career has come down to. Unfortunately she gets stuff wrong way too often. Always has. And she has always been one to take shots (some subtle, some not) at DS9 or place blame at the feet of DS9 for something she thinks went wrong. She has been doing this since the early to mid 90s.
Very, very "This".
Sirtis has often been quite unkind about "Deep Sleep Nine" (her pet-name for the series at a few conventions in the 1990s), and has always been a bit bitter at the end of TNG.
