Sisko should've been sharing a cell with Eddington over that.
Good point...but I can easily see why this was ignored by the higher ups.
Starfleet Intelligence officer- Oh look , apparently Sisko used a bio mass weopen on a Marquis settlement.
Starfleet Admiral - The Marquis, the Federation colonist?
Starfleet Intelligence officer - Ah no, sir . Apparently the Marquis are a resistance movement made of former Federation colonist.
Starfleet Admiral - So not Federation?
Starfleet Intelligence officer- No sir, in fact they stole Federation supplies, attacked and crippled a Federation ship and nearly caused a war.
Starfleet Admiral- Still, just going in without warning and bio nuking a planet..
Starfleet Intelligence officer - Actually Siskio warned them first, which is funny cause the day previously the Marquis poisoned a Cardarssian colony and shot at and crippled refugees escaping said attack. In that attack there was no warning.
Starfleet Admiral - Hmmmm, stole our resources. Attacked our ships. And bought to heel by our last ,best defence against the Dominion.
Starfleet Intelligence Officer - Yeah, its a bit grey
Sloan ( Section31 )- Not really , I wouldn't have bothered with a warning.
I know that Big Gene kind of handed the Federation the kick me sign by declaring that it's a Utopia filled with flawless persons with enlightenment and moral superiority shining out the ass. But in Ds9 , Starfleet was shown to be a bit more realist in terms of actions needed and taken.
