I had previously contemplated the complexity of such a contest given the large number of recurring characters in the DS9 universe. I noticed a similar thread in another forum, and I thought I would give this ago. Indeed, I would think that the numbers would need to be reduced in several rounds, perhaps grouping them together as such:
Adm. William Ross
The following automatically advance to the final round, representing their species:
Odo (Changeling Division)
Weyoun, all iterations (Vorta Division)
Jem-hadar fighter, Omet'iklan iteration (Jem'hadar division)
Thot Pran (Breen division)
Morn (barfly division)
Vic Fontaine (photonic division)
Each division would produce one winner, who would move to the final round.
Any thoughts? Is this a complete list?
