Been catching up and hopefully soon I will put together a more detailed collection of thoughts of the last four podcasts. But for now, regarding the Kira podcaast, I think it is okay to see her as a terrorist. By the very definition of the word that is what she was. Of course she was on the side of righteousness and was a freedom fighter against an invading, all powerful occupier. Nevertheless she did willing take part of actions that were designed to harm the bad guys/Cardassians even if innocent individuals were killed in the process. That is a terrorist.

I don't think we should shy away from that word simply because of 9-11. In fact one of the things that makes DS9 stand out is that a main character and the second in command on the station was a terrorist. Let us not sugarcoat this. I doubt any TV show can get away with that today.
Those are some good points, thank you for listening!
