In 2370, Krim was a General in the Bajoran Militia, as well as a member of the Alliance for Global Unity, also known as "The Circle". Krim refused to have the militia engage the Circle's forces on the grounds that it would lead to civil war. Later when the coup appeared to be going well, Krim led a siege of Deep Space 9. Krim returned command to Commander Benjamin Sisko when the coup failed. Krim fully expected that he would be asked to submit his resignation when the Cardassian support of The Circle was exposed. (DS9 episodes: "The Circle", "The Siege")
Following the failure of the coup d'etat, Krim was investigated by the Circle Commission for his role in the coup, but was cleared of any criminal liability for his actions. Krim maintained a low profile for the next several years until 2376 when Bajor joined the Federation, something that Krim was on record as opposing. First Minister Asarem requested that he become the Federation councilor for Bajor when Rava Mehwyn died unexpectedly. Krim's appointment was a recess appointment, done without confirmation by the Chamber of Ministers, however Krim performed so well that the Chamber later confirmed his appointment as councilor.

In March 2380, President Nanietta Bacco nominated Krim to the Federation Security Council to replace Artrin na Yel who had recently been forced to resign. Krim was appointed that same day after he gave a speech before the council responding to Councilor Bera chim Gleer. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation)
