Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.
^I'm not saying they should have kept the Romulans out of it, I'm saying they could have done it differently. Maybe exposed the Dominion's plan of galactic control to the Romulans. If Sisko had to be apart of a cover up, maybe throw Section 31 into it or have him save the log he wrote during that episode for future judgement. It could be what you said about fans being passionate about it going against what Trek is supposed to be. I was more shocked at his choice than respecting it.
In the end, he made the only choice that could be made. How many months or years could it have taken to come up with real evidence of the Dominion's plans?
