That scene caused me to:
1) Like Sisko almost immediately.
2) Despise Picard more than i ever had.
Picard comes off as elitist, dismissive, and condescending to Sisko in that scene. IMO. He prattles on about how Starfleet officers don't always have the luxury of having the assignments they desire, yadda, yadda, yadda, all the while sitting in his plush conference lounge playing with his tea set.
Big whoop. Picard earned his "plush conference lounge" with over 35 years of command experience and his own trauma at the hands of the Borg was scarring in its own right.
