Kira was born in 2343 on Bajor during the Cardassian occupation, and at 12 years old joined the Shakaar
resistance cell in 2355 to fight against Cardassians as a terrorist. In 2369, when the Cardassian
Union abandoned Bajor and the Terok Nor mining station, she was made the Bajoran liason to Starfleet,
as well as first officer to the renamed Deep Space-9. Despite her initial mistrust of Starfleet running
the station for Bajor, and Bajor joining the Federation she eventually accepted it, as well as Captain
Sisko being the Emissary. Kira also acted as first officer onboard the Defiant as well. At the start
of the Dominion War, she stayed on DS-9 to continue as Bajoran liason officer since the Bajoran
Provisional government signed a non-aggression pact with the Dominion. Her actions to help sabotage
the station made it easier for the Federation to retake DS-9. Kira was promoted from major to colonel
in 2375 in the Bajoran Militia. Near the end of 2375, she accepted a temporary Starfleet commission at
the rank of commander. Her mission was to help lead and instruct Cardassians rebelling against the
Dominion on how to successfully run an organized resistance. Leading the rebellion, with Odo, Garak,
and Damar, they were able seize Dominion headquarters, killing Weyoun, and capturing the female shape
shifter. With the apparent death of Captain Sisko, Kira now commands both DS-9 and the USS São Paulo.
The first officer of DS-9 was originally intended to be Ensign Ro Laren played by Michelle Forbes.
Nana Vistor was given the role as Major Kira.
