The last couple of seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation seemed to be leading up to showing Ensign Ro Laren joining the crew of Deep Space Nine, orbiting her homeworld of Bajor. So I was sad when Michelle Forbes turned down the DS9 role. But now at last, Ro has found her rightful place on the former Terok Nor — at least in the Star Trek Online universe. (Which also released some new screenshots recently.)
The Star Trek MMO continues to post segments of the future history of the universe, after the last underwhelming movie, Nemesis. They provide lots of wish-fullfillment for TNG/DS9 nerds, like the news that Keiko O'Brien had become a big wheel in the Cardassian relief effort last time around. But the news that Ro Laren, finally out of Federation custody, has joined the Bajoran militia and become head of security for DS9 is an extra thrill for us Ro fans.
