Though I wasn't a fan of Sisko's part in getting the Romulans to join in the Dominion war.
I was. One of the few times in Modern Trek where a character actually felt human. They needed more of that. It turned my stomach when Picard refused to terminate the Borg in I, Borg
Agreed. I love that episode of DS9, though I still feel Garak was the most human among them.
