On the dry and dirt trail, make sure you respect the women folk. Especially the one in red.

I still remember her first scene in the first episode of the first season of Deep Space Nine-the show I compared to as Star Trek's cowboy show of lawless or colorful characters behind every pylon.  Newly appointed Starfleet Officer Ben Sisko has just come aboard to a dilapidated space station that just became Bajoran property but Starfleet was called in to maintain control and help keep the peace.  Kira very angrily over a viewscreen is yelling at a government official over her disgust at the decision and then turns around to see a smiling Ben Sisko.  One of her first lines to Sisko: 

"I don't believe the Federation has any business being here!"

Don't hurt me.

She mellowed a little bit by little bit as seasons went on, but when I think of Trek's action girl/woman, it's Kira.  Not Janeway and her three lighters a day Chesterfield king voice ready to break or not break the Prime Directive on a whim or T'pol and her tight costumes and snug spandex.  Kira fought for her rights against a military oppression since she was little.  For almost her whole life, violence was a part of her daily routine and now that her people have won their land back from oppression, the newly formed government calls the Federation for help.  Thats akin to winning a years long court case for money and then having an investor tell you what your doing with it.  you can't blame her for being mad.

Kira did have a softer side of course.  She did make friends and learn to cooperate with Starfleet on the station and when push came to shove Kira was more then ready to fight back.  Early on her politics to Bajor would often get in the way of Starfleet's machine of running things but later on as the show progressed and the Dominion and Cardassians started snapping they're fangs in Bajor's way she did come to see Starfleet's importance in keeping the bad guys out and keeping order.

Kira of course had her pretty side and along with Dax made a nice pair of leading women for the Deep Space Nine series.  Of course Kira was the more mature of the two despite Dax's centuries of knowledge that she carried with her. 

If I had to compare Kira to a flower, shes a rose.  Pretty enough to look at and be around, but don't you dare mishandle her, cause she isn't afraid to cut you.
