Sisko "just" an engineer?
Well, Sisko transferred to command early in his career after the then-Captain Leyton promoted him to lieutenant commander and named him first officer of the Okinawa. We know of his engineering background because he played such an important role in the design and construction of the Defiant, but it's not clear if he did anything else in addition to that.

But I agree that it probably doesn't do a character justice to downplay his background. The Romulans wouldn't send a nobody to deal with the Federation anymore than the Federation would do the reverse.
