Which "job" on DS9 would you most like to have?

I'd definitely own Quark's Bar. It'd be cheaper with a human owner.

Morn's "shipping business" seemed to pay the bar tab well enough, while allowing him plenty of erm.... recreational time.

I suppose that's true. Morn definitely had it made.

I wouldn't like to clean out the holodecks. Or maybe they're self-cleaning?

Dabo girl.

Just kidding! I'd probably open up a Greek restaurant. There's only so much hasperat and gagh the station residents could eat before they'd long for a little variety.

Kira Nerys' towel boy (our Kira, working for the Intendent might end abruptly).

Or, Quark's holosuite programmer, since I dabble with 3D as a hobby.

I always wanted to be the guy in charge of traffic: the air traffic controller of the future.

That's a good one, Sam. They never dealt much with traffic control.

As automatic as a main character made the "you are clear for docking" I pretty much always assumed computers handled that and all the character was doing was plugging in info for a new ship and the computer gives it a docking heading and course which is clear of other ships and what not.

Doubt it. While the E-D boasted about self-cleaning technology, we never actually see it. Besides Quark makes Rom and Nog clean up messes as punishment at his bar. So if there are self-cleaning systems, Quark is too cheap to pony out for one.

Re: Which "job" on DS9 would you most like to have?

This is a very good question. If I was to do a civilian job, I think I'd like to run a shuttle service between the station and Bajor. There always seemed to be a lot of traffic between those locations - both people and trade goods.

Re: Which "job" on DS9 would you most like to have?

Only cause I'm a software engineer in real life, I'd love to be the guy who has to interface the Federation systems with Cardassian systems.

That job'd be hell for most, paradise for me.

Except for the booby traps, those'd kinda suck.

Great question!

I'd probably be an anthropologist or historian for Bajor and neighboring star systems,
a journalist, with a news service located on DS9, or work in some sort of diplomatic function for the Federation.

I love Greek food. I'd be a regular. Nothing like a nice feta salad after a hard day of scrubbing Founder goo.

And you'd make a great dabo girl. You have spunk. Dabo girls need spunk.

Hmm... Possibly. But I'd probably end up getting fired for punching Quark in the face for one reason or another. Don't get me wrong; I like Quark. But I sure wouldn't want to work for him.
