Re: Why was Garak allowed to stay on DS9 (Terok Nor)
IIRC in the Terok Nor novels it's Dukat's superior (aka the Legate who rescinds Dukat's access codes in "Civil Defense") who sends Garak to Terok Nor to rankle Dukat, though it's at the instruction of Enabran Tain. When the withdrawal comes up Dukat takes some pleasure in leaving Garak behind.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
