Wow, I'm rarely properly surprised by the winners, but I am surprised by this one! (Which is a good thing, lest anyone think I'm complaining ) Me too! I always thought that character was such a missed opportunity, and I was sooo upset as a kid when she was written out this way. I have seen that actress on stage and been absolutely blown away -- she could have delivered so much more if they had written to her. It would have been great to see Opaka return and tangle with Winn, but I would have even been happy with just her turning up in the prophet visions more. For one thing, she would have made a lot more sense as a Prophet in Sisko's "Sacrifice Of Angels" vision than Damar did!
