DS9 really needed a recurring or regular Romulan. Too bad what's-her-name disappeared after the Season Three premiere.
Sub-Commander T'Rul, played by Martha Hackett, who went on to play Seska in VOY.

I wish she had stuck around awhile, too.

Yes, it would be nice to see a Cardassian. Maybe he could help O'brien with the computer? The Carddassian may have a good knowledge of the station better than Odo.

Re: If you could insert one more character into DS9

I really wish T'Rul had stuck around, especially after Worf came onboard. I like to think there could have been a good love/hate relationship between the two of them.

I'd have liked to have seen Dorian Collins assigned to the station, she could be a love interest for Jake or Nog. She could have been the Defiant's conn officer after Jadzia was killed. Some survivors guilt to work through, as well as living up the legacy of Red Squad (seeing as she is the only one left).

A Federation diplomat/liaison. He/she would have their own approach to alien races, interested in peace above all else and has a dislike of Starfleet due to its militaristic ways.

Re: If you could insert one more character into DS9

Personally I think it would have been nice to see Ezri a few seasons earlier than the last one. If anything, to have her come aboard periodically to handle O'Brien's horribly handled imprisonment follow-up from the events of Hard Time.

O'Brien hates counselors. Ezri's not a terribly good assistant counselor visiting from the Destiny. But for some reason he takes a liking to her and chooses her for his monthly sessions. Maybe this storyline is just a B-story in a one-off episode but I would have liked to have seen at least that.

It would also be interesting to see an 'everyday' non-joined Trill, who grew up in a mining colony off-world and was never caught up in the idea of becoming joined - and watch how she would interact with a top-of-her-game character like Jadzia. THEN to see her take on the mantle of the Dax symbiont, see the change in her and understand a little better why she's so messed up in season 7.

Obviously the writers didn't have the foresight to predict Farrell's exit, but it would have been nice.

Re: If you could insert one more character into DS9

I also think it would be fun to have what would essentially be a "reverse Morn" character, one that you would hear all the time but never see.

Of course, DS9 essentially did just that with Captain Cusak in The Sound of Her Voice - but where her character lifted everyone up, this character would be incessantly depressed.

Basically I'm thinking that it would be the DS9 equivalent of Carlton the Doorman from Rhoda...



He would be in charge of something ridiculous like Damage Control on the Defiant, and essentially be there to tell the crew that they were all gonna die horrifically whenever Sisko called for a damage report. DS9's version of Marvin the Paranoid Android.

Or someone like this officer?

Ah, the important part of reading out loud what the computer spells out. Also known as "Harry Kim" a couple years down the road.

Thadiun Okona. *ducks* What? I like Okona.

Here's a serious idea. A Chaotic Neutral unjoined Trill civilian trader, occasional thief, and freelance spy. He could have some history with Quark and maybe Kira.
