Top 50 Star Trek Characters – #33 Kira Nerys
Kira Nerys, a former member of the Bajoran militia, terrorist and freedom fighter, would become second in command on board the space station Deep Space Nine.
In the early days it wasn’t uncommon for Kira to be a little over the top with her emotions, however she would settle down as the show progressed. She was extremely spiritual, but was also very proficient in combat and wasn’t afraid to do what needed to be done in a dangerous situation, often drawing from her background. Kira had many unique relationships with her crew mates. She regarded Captain Sisko as a religious figure in her culture (much to his chagrin), carried and gave birth to Keiko & Chief O’Brien’s second child, detested Quark and fell in love with Odo after finding out he had feelings for her for several years.
