I have a variety of issues.
Any idea what the reason on the scriptwriters part was?
was it to make him a more central aspect of the show.
or did they want to write him out for a season or two.
He does, obviously appear almost every episode after he comes back to DS9 and becomes Jakes Roommate.
Beyond that it said a letter of refrence from a "Command level officer" is needed.
What, for the sake of refrence, is a command level officer.
Someone commander and above, a Redshirt?
Ideas how most people find a command level officer to sponsor them, or is the policy MEANT to exclude those not allready chummy with such a individual.
Like say Ro Larren probaly didnt meet a starfleet officer till she fled her homeworld.
