Re: So did Worf's Change of Heart cost him command of the Enterprise?
I do not understand why Worf got a mark on his record. Sisko or whoever should have known better then to pair up a husband and wife on a mission that dangerous. Who would not have made the same decision Worf made.
He disobeyed orders and allowed an operative willing to aid the Federation to be killed by Dominion troops. It's not Sisko's fault that he made that choice, nor is the captain to blame because Worf and Dax chose to pursue a relationship. Regardless of what choice Sisko may have made in his place, that doesn't change the the fact that his actions compromised an important mission. And for the record, it was Kira who actually issued their mission orders. Sisko wasn't even aboard the station until the end of the episode.
