Hi!

Both my characters are Bajorans!

Anyone else play as one?

I had a bajoran sci officer once. It was the first time someone hit one me via a tell. The character was female and wore a mini-skirt. Since then, I carefully choose when and if my female characters wear mini-skirts.

Bajorans make good healers due to their traits. I always liked them, despite many people hating them, which I never really understood.

Mains a Bajoran... however that will change as soon as the Breen to First Officer system comes... then the bajorans are back to being the slaves of El Breeno

Bajorans are cool, don't know why so many people hate them. Granted they are not the most creative alien design but that doesn't matter.

I had a Bajoran as a science captain once, but there are only so many characters one can play, so he got replaced by someone else. I have a lot of Bajoran bridge officers though.

I don't have a Bajoran player character (PC), but one of my primary tactical Bridge Officers (BOffs) on my main PC is a Bajoran. I gave her an in-depth back-story and everything (including that I consider her my Chief of Security and ship's martial arts instructor) ! I made her in the "angry Bajoran" (Ro, Kira, etc) mold even though technically she would have had to been either a baby or not yet born during the Cardassian occupation.

A good number of people dislike Bajorans because throughout the shows they have been primarily portrayed as whiny, aggressive, self-entitled and self-righteous upstarts who have difficulty taking orders from authority figures.

Ensign Ro is one of the first examples of a Bajoran officer, and she wasn't the easiest to get along with. Kira, in her earlier days, was no easier. Granted, their entire planet was subjugated and persecuted by the Cardassians, but that doesn't matter to many viewers when all they see is the product of the occupation in out "everyday" trek environment.

Besides, if anyone was looking for a scapegoat to hate Bajorans, I only have one name: Kai Winn. I dare anyone to assert she was not worthy of contempt.

I liked Ensign Ro. I wish they had found a way to bring her back for one of the Movies. Kira was contrary and confrintational during the first two seasons, but se grew on me after she mellowed out in season three.

Winn Adami shouold have never been Kai. I suppose that here election to that office was to be a complication for Sisko, but I felt that she was more a more effective foil as a Vedek.

Finally, Wesly Cruher's class mate Sito Jaxa was very endearing in the episode "Lower Decks", and I liked how the character evolved from the events in "The First Duty". Too bad they killed her off. I know that in a few novelizations, she survived. However, I would like to see the soft cannon be reflected on screen by having that character show up.
