I don't see Sisko as a ship captain for most of DS9. He's more like a manager.
Archer runs the loosest ship. He was the latest captain and therefore the one who was most a product of the west coast therapy culture, in which hurting someone's feelings is the gravest of transgressions.
I still liked ENTERPRISE, of course. He just wasn't old-school enough for me, which is ironic because his story was set in the earliest ST era.
