    Maybe she assumed she was first officer of the Defiant and everybody was too scared to tell her otherwise.

    A Klingon, like Worf, would respect that kind of authority.

    The exact opposite, amazingly enough;

    CH'POK
    Chief O'Brien, if Mister Worf had
    been injured, could you have taken
    command of that ship?

    O'BRIEN
    I would've.

    Not really sure if that means 'would've' as in it would have automatically fallen to him (which considering Kira was also there is unlikely) or 'would've' as in would've given it a try if no-one else stepped up...

    Yes, yes it does. He’s the first officer of the Defiant.

    I can’t remember, is this the only time Kira commands the Defiant over Worf? If so, I move to strike it from evidence That whole scenario was super plot-device contrived. There’s no way Jadzia should have been left behind to command the station instead of Kira unless they just conveniently needed her there to die.

    Agreed. As I understand it, the episode was already written when they found out they'd need to kill Dax, and that was the best they could come up with on short notice.
