    Wrapped up the circle trilogy this weekend and it got me to thinking...whatever happened to Minister Jaro Esa? We last see him in the chamber of ministers saying he will cooperate with the investigation of Cardassian involvement. Was he kicked out of the chamber of ministers? Was he charged with a crime? Treason? Was he ever heard from again in fiction/novels?

    He was probably jailed for treason.

    I'm pretty sure Winn maneuvered it so that he took the fall for the whole Circle affair, and she got out of it clean. So he's probably in prison.

    Seems ripe for a Relaunch return, if you ask me.

    If you consider the relaunch in your personal canon then Jaro Essa is mentioned in the relaunch series (Book Bajor: Fragments and Omens)

    In it they explain that Minister Jaro was removed from office and was put in prison.

    my girlfriend and I started watching the circle trilogy last night. I forgot how good it was. It's something thatgets forgotten about by the time the season is over but watching it again I wish they had picked up on what happened to minister Jaro.

    I imagine he went to a very very nasty prison. I hope so.

    Wouldn't he have excellent deniability? He could paint himself as a patriotic freedom fighter who knew nothing about where his organization's weapons were coming from.

    "Xepolite, Kressari or Yridian cargo manifests? Lies, vicious lies, and statistics! Forgeries by foreign powers! Let's keep this Bajoran, my fellow Bajorans, and judge me by what I did for this planet, not by how this meddling foreign alien scum wants to blackpaint me. I will go to jail for the greater good of this planet. And after my two-week sentence is up, I will run for office again, with the full support of my dear, dear friend Winn who by the way is completely innocent of any wrongdoing or involvement in this, even though she of course is a solid patriot like me, and a trustworthy politician. And beautiful to boot."

    Jaro got elected dogcatcher, got bit by a rabid dog and died a horrible, painful death.
