Re: Would you have liked to actually SEE Bajor join the Federation?

I love Bajor and the storylines surrounding Bajor and I'm thankful they can't be erased because I own the DVDs! But I don't think there was ever a good time for Bajor to join the Federation in this series. Though with the right leadership, I'm sure it would have happened eventually.

But hey, who knows, perhaps in the JJ timeline Bajor will be destroyed like Vulcan, then you can enjoy a universe sans Bajor.

Re: Would you have liked to actually SEE Bajor join the Federation?

I think we should assume that in the near future after the series Bajor joined the Federation. Remember that they were very close to joining the Federation, and the only reason they didn't is because of Sisko's brain disease prophecy, and the only reason for the brain disease prophecy is that if Bajor had joined the Federation at that point the !!!LOCUSTS!!! would have been a lot meaner in the occupation arc.

Actually, it would have ben cool if in Voyager one of the letters from home talked about Bajor joining the Federation so the Bajoran members of the crew could react. I wonder why they didn't do anything like that.

They probably would have botched it up as badly as ENT: TATV did. It was better to leave the Bajor question open-ended, and it would have been anti-climactic after Sisko's personal struggle.

A ton of old men arguing about the correct interpretation of the words of the Emissary in Rapture.

Stubborn Vedek: The Sisko said that if Bajor ever joined the Federation, it would be destroyed!

Progressive Vedek: That is not true! The Sisko said it was not the right time to join the Federation. He only meant, at that moment we should not have joined, and if we had the Dominion would have destroyed us.

Kira: Hold on, I knew Commander Sisko! He was sure that one day Bajor would join the Federation!

Stubborn Vedek: BUT THIS IS NOT THE TIME!

Progressive Vedek: YES IT IS!

Vedek Assembly: RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!

Sta'kail: Everybody, listen! I learned something today! I don't know what the Sisko meant with every word he said. But when we try to interpret what he meant, all we're really doing is projecting our own biases onto his words! Whether he wanted Bajor to join the Federation now, or later, we all know what he really wanted was what was best for Bajor. So we have to do what we know is best for Bajor, without trying to interpret his words.
