IDIC does not mean Starfleet needs hot-headed captains whose rush to fire torpedoes could result in diplomatic crisis or galactic destruction. Worf has not grown into a character with an itch of diplomacy unless he is dealing with Klingons and this book demonstrated that well in the instances I cited. Worf would be good as commander of a frigate on the UFP border but not as the CO of the federation flagship in charge of diplomatic issues. IDIC doesn't mean every personality can do every job.
