We all know the first episode of the Dominion War - as the Defiant laid mines across the wormhole, the Dominion, with their Cardassian underlings attacked DS 9. It was a hard fought battle, but Starfleet had to evacuate the station. When they left, Kira and Odo went to the control center and initiated Sisko's self-destruct program. I've been wondering if, to be consistent, they should have done it as Kirk did in "Let that be your last battlefield", which Picard and Riker did a generation later. In other words, Kira should have said, "Recognize, Kira ..." followed by Odo saying, "Recognize Odo ..." And then the station would have blasted the sensitive part to bits. What do you think?
