In 2374, Captain Benjamin Sisko presented her and Admiral Coburn with "Operation Return", his plan to retake Deep Space 9. He attempted to convince them that Deep Space 9 was extremely important to the war effort, as by controlling Deep Space 9 they would also control the wormhole. Sitak was skeptical but agreed, as the retention of the minefield would mean the Dominion would be forced to fight without its reinforcements. (DS9: "Favor the Bold")
In the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers eBook, War Stories, Book 2, Sitak offered Captain David Gold command of the starship, USS da Vinci. She later presided (along with Admiral William Ross) over a Starfleet Tribunal that found Captain Gold was not at fault for the near destruction of the da Vinci in the SCE eBook, Breakdowns.
