If you could insert one more character into DS9

Who/what character would it be?

Example: an ex Romulan sub commander disgruntled w/the empire that's flown the coops or Tzenkathi female lieutenant trying bridge the gap between the former combatants.

Something like that

I always wanted a Romulan to be a main or recurring character.

A Ferengi woman who had received asylum from the Federation.

The 'Women's rights' stories could have run through her instead of Ishka. She could have filled both Rom's and Ishka's niches more believably and had a hate-mance with Quark.

No flaming lib here, but that is very good. I like that, the other suggestions have pretty good too.

Ro Laren

In the books she ends up commanding DS9. Major Kira's position was originally written for her, but Michelle Forbes didn't want it. It surprises me that she never showed up on the show at least one time.

Re: If you could insert one more character into DS9

Erika Benteen from the Homefront/Paradise Lost two parter would have beena good addition during the final season. The events during that two parter would have meant that she was known to most of the main cast and not all of them would have favourable opinions of her leading to drumroll dramatic tension!

Bashir could have fallen for Benteen ratehr than Ezri making the romance less squick imho and helping Benteen to loosen up a bit.

Also Pel, the cross dressing female ferengi from Rules of Acquisition that Quark had feelings for, could have returned as a recurring romantic interest in the final season. JirinPanthosa already suggested that the female rights on fereginar could have been run through a different female than Ishka and Pel would have been perfect for that.

DS9 really needed a recurring or regular Romulan. Too bad what's-her-name disappeared after the Season Three premiere.
