So, yeah. Last night I got into a really huge discussion with some people about "What would happen to the situation in the Alpha Quadrant when the Romulan Empire is wiped out?" I mean, if you think about the fact that this is just 12 years after the Dominion War... and how important DS9 was in maintaining the balance of power in the Alpha Quadrant...

Anyway, the result of this is that we're now going to be creating/writing/beta-ing an amazingly awesome fic about it. Seriously, the degree of thought and planning we are putting into it, into the politics, the people, the fact of at least two different space/time disturbances...I think it would make any DS9 fan very, very, very happy. Haha, I'm resisting the urge to start telling ya'll all the details, but yeah. If we manage to really get it done, the story will be so much better without spoilers.

So yeah. If we have people who would be interested in reading it, I think that would be a big factor in getting it done, for real.

(Note: So far as I know we're going to focus on the television and film canon only. This won't include people/events from the DS9 relaunch books. It would however, include nearly everyone from DS9, and possibly a couple people from TNG and Voyager. We are going to be working very hard to stick to the canon of the original universe, taking the fact that the events implied in the original universe in ST:XI (I.E. the destruction of the Romulan star system, and disappearance of Ambassador Spock) did occur, but we will not be dealing with the resulting AU.)

ANNNND, I shamelessly broke this post in two so I could use both Dukat icons.

I have to admit, I have always sort of crushed on Dukat as well. The simple fact of the matter is that he is a dreamer, and fairly darn charismatic about it. The fact that an ultimate realist like Kira very nearly slipped into his la-la land just goes to show how enchanting it, and he, could be.

I was never very surprised that he managed to successfully woo a Bajoran woman during the occupation. The passionate, hopeful world of Dukat's dreamland is pretty darn appealing, even if one isn't living through a horrible military occupation (which Naprem was).

Of course, one of the reasons Kira is so amazing is because she doesn't get dragged into the dream, even when Ziyal comes into the picture and proves that a sane, intelligent, person that Kira respects, can love Dukat.
