Re: The Sisko/Picard scene in "Emissary"

It was a fantatstic idea to have Sisko not have warm feelings regarding a fellow Starfleet officer (even if those feelings would change at the end of the ep). It was bold for the writers to go there considering how popular Picard was and how Trek fans were not used to such conflict and hostility. In retrospect it hurt Sisko's character for the longest time because Trek fans couldn't appreciate the backstories and personal dynamics; Trek fans instead took sides. And Sisko was the loser for it. One guy who wrote some Trek tech book even mentioned the scene in the episode in his book and admitted he hated Sisko at first because he had been mean to "his hero" Picard. Good grief.
