Re: OTHER Starship Captains - Symbolism, Foreshadowing & Plot Devices

SISKO - Good to see you.

You have chosen the TAKE option.

In your answer, as part of your reasoning, you state:

"Since the ship is Under attack",...

In point-of-fact, if you can possibly review the episode, you will learn that the Electromagnetic Waves which are draining the power from your ship, are a NATURALLY OCCURRING BY-PRODUCT of the operation of the machine, Vaal.

This fact was reported to you by your Chief-Engineer at the moment your ship first entered orbit around the alien planet.

Therefore it is UNTRUE that your ship is 'UNDER ATTACK" by anything or anyone; the TRUTH is you placed and kept the ship directly in a hazard well known to you.

Does this fact change your answer?
