Happy Monday everybody.
Another work week is here and that means another week of Daily Sketches to brighten your computer screens. Only ten more days of Start Trek month left; First Officers will be finishing up this week and Aliens starting- so you are probably wondering how I am going to end Star Trek month. Don’t worry I have a great idea in mind. On to today’s DS offering.
Major Kira Nerys the senior Bajoran Militia officer aboard Deep Space Nine and acting executive officer under the Starfleet Commander Sisko for the space station. Originally opposed to Starfleet’s presence on DS9, Kira’s ideals slowly changed and she became one of biggest supporters for Bajor to join the Federation. She eventually was offered complete command of DS9 and when Bajor joined the Federation she was promoted to Captain in Starfleet.
Some trivia- Nana Visitor, the actress who played Kira, was married to DS9 co-star Alexander Siddig, who portrayed Doctor Julian Bashir. The character of Kira Nerys was a last-minute addition to the cast; the original plan was to include the character of Ro Laren from Star Trek: The Next Generation, but Michelle Forbes (Laren) didn’t want a series at the time.
