The Siege

Now we're back for part three, Under Siege like Seagal(1)
At the behest of Jaro Essa and his shadowy cabal
They're marching on the city, gonna try a coup d'etat
Seize the power on the planet from the Kai to the Sirah(2)
So Kira and Dax bring the evidence to the ministers
Make 'em hear the facts, Cardies up to something sinister
Next thing they're flying by the seat of her pants
Have to keep trying even if they don't stand a chance.
While Li and Sisko use guerilla war tricks
Bashir setting traps down in Cargo Bay Six
Sisko worries Li's just trying to get killed
Only used to fighting, no use to help rebuild
This hero's just a man, guess he's kinda like Cochrane(3) 
But people need a leader to coordinate like Spock's Brain(4)
The commander reaches out to make peace with the general
BUt soon they find their victory's fleeting and ephemeral
The colonel's got a gun before they turn to look
And then just like this verse, Nalas is off the hook.
  1. Stephen Seagal, star of Under Siege and many direct to video action films.
  2. Ceremonial leader from DS9's "The Storyteller".
  3. Warp drive pioneer and hero of the Federation, who claimed he never wanted to be a statue.
  4. Infamous TOS episode where aliens steal Spock's brain and use it to run their society.
