James T. Kirk (TOS: "Errand of Mercy")

Bajoran First Minister Shakaar Edon remarked to Odo in 2372 that "You know, I've been a soldier, and I've been a politician. And I have to say I'm beginning to think that... being a soldier was easier." (DS9: "Crossfire")

Following the Occupation, Bajorans no longer followed the D'jarra caste system. In 2372, Kira Nerys remarked that "Artists have become soldiers, priests have become merchants, and farmers have become politicians." (DS9: "Accession")
