Re: Had Sisko Always Been Command Track

I suppose one could argue its college level algebra by that point, but even so.
I guess the better argument, in the sense of preempting all sorts of contradictions from the uncontrolled writing, is that people in the 24th century no longer believe in uniform education. When there's so much to be taught, different people learn different things and simply ignore the vast majority of teachable knowledge out there. Or at least are in no hurry to learn it in their first twenty years or so, when they have a hundred more to burn.

Fixed-length curricula sound less and less likely, then - especially when the potentially quite conservative Starfleet is the one explicitly seen engaging in flexible-length education for its officers.
