Was the USS Enterprise ever part of the Dominion War?

Were Picard & Company ever part of the Dominion War? In the canon, I mean.

Your first thought may be, "Well, that's stupid. Why not put one of the most powerful starships with one of the Federation's best captains on the front line?" However, given Picard's experience as an explorer and diplomat, and given the power of the Enterprise-E, it suits the ship and the captain to be sent on diplomacy missions: the captain is a noted diplomat and is likely to produce the desired result, while the captain and ship are more than capable of fending for themselves if diplomacy breaks down. Better that than say a poor diplomat on say a Sabre-class starship who both fails and gets his ship blown to pieces as a result.

Well, that sounds like an entire series by itself.
But the interesting thing is that there is no mention of what the USS Enterprise did in any of the canon movies. And don't forget, in "Yesterday's Enterprise", it was used as a battleship of the line, so it would be logical to assume that the same would be true here.

Some things are just hard to work into a script or a final cut for a movie.
And yes, but was the Enterprise-C the best ship in the fleet with the best captain? I think not. Like I said, a ship that can defend itself on its own with a noted diplomat captain.
That would be another reason. (And while the war didn't last two episodes, it does, for the most part, take a back seat after Sisko & Co. take back DS9 in season six.)

True, but, since there are now so many inconsistencies in the canon, we could tell if we had an alternate universe.

Enterprise did not visit DS9 during and after the war. In fact, the class of starship of Enterprise was not even in the war.

Think it would have been a detraction. We did not see any ship looking like the current class ship of the Enterprise or the current class ship of Voyager during the war. In fact, with Enterprise with the TNG or the movies, only a single time did they use a sister ship. That ship exploded.

If the Enterprise was or hinted in DS9 that it was in the war, someone that is not part of DS9, could make a Enterprise movie and take away the THUNDER away from DS9.DS9 would never be thought of as an equal with the other series.

It is a little fun to think of an overlap of other series. My viewpoint, Enterprise really did not need to overlap DS9 after the first season. With the ending of ENTERPRISE, with the overlap it was ok but I wished it had a better ending.

Just be happy that DS9 had the best effects and battles out of all the series and even movies. The new Trek movie is pretty good in this regard but it's not showing huge fleet battles.
