You're so right SISKO! It does just go to show how outstanding the show was!

Deliberate, or simply ethically misguided, the character of STONE represents a HUGE segment of real fellow-humans in our socio/politico/religo based world, and the different types of people who are it influencing operators.

Like them or not,... here they are LOL!

SISKO, seriously, let me ask you this, IF YOU WERE KIRK, would you have - without alterations - taken STONE's deal?
Wow, good question. The point though is that Kirk KNEW he was innocent, and thus would never agree to it. But if he actually HAD acted out of malice, would he (or I) take the deal? For the good of the service? Probably.
