    Captan Kirk has a statue in Iowa and there are plans for a Janeway statue in Indiana.

    I think a statue of Sisko would just be a as important in Louisiana, especially in these times.

    We know Sisko is from Cajun country, but we don't know which city. So maybe they should work that out first.

    He was born in New Orleans.

    I mentioned a while back that Sisko most certainly should have a statue. He is my favorite captain.

    If Bajor were real, I'm sure they'd have a statue for Sisko.

    That's an interesting notion, actually...I wonder how many planets other than Earth have tributes to Our Heroes. You would think some of the planets they've saved must have chosen to mark the occasion.

    I think statues to fictional characters are cool.From Sherlock Holmes to Paddington bear these characters often mean more to people than long dead pols.

    Real people as we see at the moment can be controversial too. I'de be much more a fan of a plaque or monument to an event rather than to the general or politician involved

    A stature of Obi-wan Kenobi on the tallest mountain in Scotland will be ... interesting.

    We need a petition for a Neelix statue now!

    Or maybe a Lwaxana one.

    Edit: A Neelix statue that has pressure plates int he walkways around it and every time somebody steps on them a loud speaker plays one of Neelix's classic lines from he show.

    Sisko's should be in New Orleans, since he at least grew up there.

    Yeah, serious mode: If Janeway gets a statue, so should Picard and Sisko.

    We may see a Patrick Stewart one when he dies but I don't think it's the done thing to have statues of people who are still alive in England

    also Sisko/Brooks is a jazz man so New Orleans would fit great in many ways.

    He's not a fictional character! But he is a legend!

    But the Janeway statue is of Janeway, not Kate Mulgrew (Kate Mulgrew isn't even from Indiana), so I'm talking about a statue of Picard, not Sir Patrick Stewart ;)
    Not that I'm that invested in the existence of such a statue, just saying if Janeway got one...
