Re: So did Worf's Change of Heart cost him command of the Enterprise?
What if Kira got command of the Enterprise? Who's to say that she has to live on DS9 for the rest of her career. Surely at some point after the war Bajor would have joined the Federation and at least part of the Bajoran military absorbed into Starfleet...
If you've seen any of the DS9 Relaunch
novels, the Bajoran militia was absorbed into Starfleet when Bajor was accepted into the Federation. Kira was granted a Starfleet commission and promoted to captain. She ultimately resigned from Starfleet to pursue a career in the Vedek Assembly before disappearing during the events of Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn
