For all we know, official first contact between the UFP and the Bajoran government was seen on screen, as prior to Sisko and the Provisionals shaking hands, there had been no official Bajoran government for the UFP to contact...
Unless the Federation had had contact with Bajor before the occupation took place.

Re: A Question re "Trials and Tribble-ations"

...But I tried to argue why that could not happen - Cardassia would own the neighborhood even before the occupation.

Picard: "We were saddened by those events but they occurred within the designated borders of the Cardassian Empire."
The "events" include Cardassians taking the Bajoran homes, according to Keeve Falor. So Picard might well be saying that the initial conquest of Bajor by Cardassia took place within the designated borders of the Cardassian empire already.

Much would then depend on how recently said empire had gone all bellicose and possessive about its interstellar vicinity - another unknown in the general Trek timeline. Did it happen during Gul Madred's lifetime, or was it already ongoing well before that?

Maybe Kira was just afraid she would kill Kirk if he tried to hit on her, which of course he would.
At the very least, you can be sure she would disrupt the timeline with a legend about a round-bellied, wrinkly-nosed alien who beat the everloving hell out of Starfleet's most famous captain.

Speaking of which, one of my favorite little details on DS9 is that Kira's never heard of Kirk.
