I had previously contemplated the complexity of such a contest given the large number of recurring characters in the DS9 universe. I noticed a similar thread in another forum, and I thought I would give this ago. Indeed, I would think that the numbers would need to be reduced in several rounds, perhaps grouping them together as such: Hew-Mon Division Benjamin Sisko Jake Sisko Joseph Sisko Julian Bashir Miles O'Brien Adm. William Ross Michael Eddington Sloan Ferengi Division Quark Rom Nog Zek Brunt Cardassian Division Dukat Dumar Garak Rusot Enabran Tain Evek Bajoran Division Shakaar Edon Bareil Antos Solbor Klingon Division Worf Martok Gowron The following automatically advance to the final round, representing their species: Odo (Changeling Division) Weyoun, all iterations (Vorta Division) Jem-hadar fighter, Omet'iklan iteration (Jem'hadar division) Thot Pran (Breen division) Morn (barfly division) Vic Fontaine (photonic division) Each division would produce one winner, who would move to the final round. Any thoughts? Is this a complete list?
