Garak is far from unsong. To us fans that is.
Remember, generally speaking, individuals and their actions are usually never remembered, except for admirals and generals who sit and give orders. The people doing the actual fighting, or people in resistance movements, are never remembered by name. Sad really. During WWII there was a resistance movement in the Netherlands. We remember they excisted, but do we remember who they really were? No. Those are the unsong heroes.
