Re: Would you have liked to actually SEE Bajor join the Federation?

But what is there to see? A ceremony?
A ton of old men arguing about the correct interpretation of the words of the Emissary in Rapture.

Stubborn Vedek: The Sisko said that if Bajor ever joined the Federation, it would be destroyed!

Progressive Vedek: That is not true! The Sisko said it was not the right time to join the Federation. He only meant, at that moment we should not have joined, and if we had the Dominion would have destroyed us.

Kira: Hold on, I knew Commander Sisko! He was sure that one day Bajor would join the Federation!

Stubborn Vedek: BUT THIS IS NOT THE TIME!

Progressive Vedek: YES IT IS!

Vedek Assembly: RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!

Sta'kail: Everybody, listen! I learned something today! I don't know what the Sisko meant with every word he said. But when we try to interpret what he meant, all we're really doing is projecting our own biases onto his words! Whether he wanted Bajor to join the Federation now, or later, we all know what he really wanted was what was best for Bajor. So we have to do what we know is best for Bajor, without trying to interpret his words.
