Kira Nerys was one of the best characters of DS9, so no, I wouldn't trade.

Yeah, there's no way I'd trade Kira for Ro. I absolutely adore Kira. She was a bit abrasive at first, but that was understandable; the Bajorans had just gotten the Cardassians to leave, only to be (seemingly) replaced by the Federation. It's no wonder she was angry and resentful. She just wanted a free Bajor, for heaven's sake.

And anyway, her character just got better and better with every episode. By the second season, she had become my favorite female Trek character ever. I liked Ro, but Kira's frigging amazing. She's strong, resilient, and feisty, but also sweet, compassionate, and loyal. She's the best.

I'm comfortable enough to admit, I have a total girl-crush on Kira. I'm as straight as they come, but she's just so danged pretty. Curse her giant brown doe eyes.

Re: Would you trade Kira for Ro Laren? Or maybe put them both on DS9?

I think a guest appearance from Michelle Forbes would have been great. Not a regular, but maybe just a one-off return where she and Kira clash over different ideals. I'd love to have seen that. But I wouldn't trade Kira for her. As others have already said, Kira Nerys is a much more dynamic character than Ro Laren. The fact alone that she isn't Starfleet makes a big difference (yeah I know, technically Ro wasn't by the end of TNG either). One of the things which makes Kira so great in the DS9 cast dynamic is that she's got her own life and largely her own agenda. She isn't tied to the uniform, but when she does eventually get to be part of Starfleet it feels like a logical progression for the character. Ro, on the other hand, was always part of Starfleet and despite her firey attitude she still had to follow orders. Most of the time.

I was in the minority apparently, crushing on Kira instead of Dax when the series was running when I was a teenager. Kira just seemed more genuine and real to me. Though thank goodness she changed her hair style after Emissary!

Ro's a fun character, and very tragic, but I don't think the DS9 posting would've suited her at all. Who knows, it could've been better, but it would've involved missing out on Kira. My main disappointment is we didn't see her in a guest role on DS9. With her joining the Maquis, she could've been involved in some interesting stories.

I would have liked Ro if she had been involved in the Maquis arc. Maybe team her up with Eddington or something.

I would have been okay with this degree of involvement, but that would be about it. I have no interest in replacing Kira...especially not with a character from TNG.

Might have been a nice touch to have her in the Maquis arc or something though.

Well, when Visitor began to wear that later uniform, she was very sexy. So, no.

I like Kira more, redheads just look more edgy.

I definitely would not replace her but Ro might have been kind of cool as a guest once or twice... I think the clashing personalities would be great for scripts and fun for writers. It would be pretty exciting!

GAWD no! I liked Kira 10,000,000 times better than Ro. I could not stand Ro Laren.

Yeah, I have to say the first uniform was like a cardboard cutout. LOL!

I think Kira worked better, someone who are not starfleet.

No Ro would of been a excellent for the Marquis plot line, or as part of Voyager's crew.

Both! Both! Both!
Ro would have been awesome on DS9. I would have liked to see her on Voyager (as a Maquis of course) even more. I could imagine her butting heads with Janeway and making some great episodes.
