The Sisko/Picard scene in "Emissary"
Was the Sisko/Picard scene in "Emissary" intended to be more than just a reflection of how the Sisko character might react in such a situation?
Was the obvious hostility intended to place emotional distance between the two shows in the franchise ... explicitly giving them more separate identities by showing more conflict between each series' leading man than had been shown between any two 24th-century Starfleet officers to date?
