Re: Federation planets and internal revolution

If the Federation doesn't want their Starfleet officers to set policy, they shouldn't let starship captains act as diplomats-at-large and wandering goodwill ambassadors.

In the case of Bajor, if Sisko wasn't supposed to be in charge of organizing the effort to bring Bajor into the UFP, then there should've been a civilian official or officials from the government to take care of the details. But even at the signing ceremony for Bajor's entrance to the Federation ("Rapture"), we saw more Starfleet brass than civilian officials.

Seems like the UFP is a Starfleet dictatorship, don't it?
