I was thinking about the thread about Kira's posting and the dialogue in Apocalypse Rising: if the station were under attack, where would Worf best be used? And in the absence of Sisko, would he be better placed in DS9's ops or on the Defiant's bridge? In the logic of the show and the franchise, I think Worf would always be placed in Ops. The station is far better armed than the Defiant. Sisko never himself captained the Defiant when the station was attacked, assigning it to Kira and Dax. Indeed, he never turned it over to Worf in such circumstances. And when Sisko was relieved of command, Worf was not recalled... sort of a strike against him. Moreover, the franchise tends to prefer piloting as a tactical skill in a captain more than weapons knowledge. Under attack, the captain tends to work with the helmsman,while the first officer works with the security officer. Worf being less of a pilot might means his command skills would be better used where maneuver is less of an issue. Overall, I think it makes more sense to have Worf in Ops when the station is under attack, whether Sisko was in command, Kira was in command, or indeed Worf was in command. It would be better to turn the Defiant over to Dax.
