Does anybody else find it a bit odd that the Bajorans nearly get involved in a civil war, over some bits of farm equipment? I mean, come on! I know they're desperate, but these people run warp driven starships! Surely soil reclamators can't be that important!
And also, why are they actually farming at all? Farming is supposed to be obsolete in the 24th century! The Federation has been helping the Bajorans for three years now, and in the 24th century you would think that the very first item on the list of things to rebuild would be a global system of food replicators.
When Kai Winn is appointed as temporary First Minister of Bajor, she orders some soil reclamators relocated. But some of Kiras old Bajoran resistance friends have decided that the machines belong to them, and soon a minor civil war is brewing as the rebels take to the hills again - this time with fellow Bajorans in persuit.
