Usually when a major female character dies, it's hollow and more-or-less used to show how bad a bad guy is, and to stick it to the actor who plays her. Ok, I only really have Yar and Jadzia as examples, but seriously "Oh death is not supposed to be noble." Fuck that shit. I'm glad they gave Ro a sendoff she deserves, dying a hero, and yes, standing up for what she believes. She was a victim, sure, but she fought to the end, not just tossed aside by a sludge monster or Power Form Super Dukat. I guess I'll never see Kira and Ro on-screen together now. Unless it's animated and a flashback.
