Re: Did The Prophets Know About Sisko Before Emissary?

Well I'm still sticking with my view of the Prophet's master plan regarding the containing of the Pah Wraiths, and analysing the various pasts and futures to both protect Bajor and keep the Pah Wraiths incarcerated. I also believe that what the Prophets don't know or can't see they can't manipulate, so if they had no need for an Emissary figure then Sisko would never have come into existence. I also believe the Prophets can't keep manipulating a huge amount of events in the past without changing or causing a future timeline to splinter into various pieces.

Aside from what happened in Accession, this was a rather small event of the Prophets merging different timelines together into one. However there must be limits to this without dangerous temporal conundrums forming and ripping space/time into shreds. At any rate it seems the Prophets are the self-appointed temporal guardians of the universe, so maybe it explains Voyager...
