Re: Resigning from Starfleet
So why is Sisko's friend dying so much more traumatic than anyone else losing a friend during any given day of that war? I wouldn't even call it a breakdown. More a sense of depression and loss of direction. Kira did say she wasn't sure he was coming back at all when he took the baseball. Resignation/leave of absence... only difference is he didn't burn a bridge.
