Vision in "Far Beyond the Stars"
Isn't it just speculation that this vision was send by the Prophets? After all "Far Beyond the Stars" took place after Kosst Amojan was freed in season 5. Just because Siskos "neural potentials" where the same, it doesn't mean it had to be visions send by the Prophets. In fact I would find it far more convincing to know that it was the Wraith, because I don't see how these visions relate to Sisko's loss, but are more aimed at disturbing him and shaking his beliefs, which would be consistet with the intent of the Wraith and the visions in "Shadows and Symbols".
