So I was just rewatching the first two episodes of season 7, and the Kira-Cretak standoff, strikes me as being extremely unbelievable. Basically, Kira was willing to initiate a battle with the romulans over the romulans placing weapons on a moon, weapons they would have move, anyway at the end of the war, especially if Bajor did enter the Federation. Admiral Ross tells her that the romulans are more important than Bajor. And surely I think the Federation would have told the Bajoran government to stand down. Or contacted the romulans at a higher diplomatic level, and worked things out. I get it, it shows Kira as willing to engage in tenacious brinkmanship, but frankly, she and the Bajorans overstepped their clout, and would have(in my humble opinion) would been slapped down for it. The only thing, preventing an armed confrontation was the wormhole opening, which apparently caused Cretak to lose her nerve. Kira also seemed totally unconcerned with the possibility of blowing up the Federation-Romulan alliance, or causing the Federation to turn on Bajor. Kira was definitely brave, but her actions were extremely unwise, and could have been disastrous.
