Re: Poll about something that happens in The Fall [SPOILERS]

Point of order:

Ishan is not President. He is President Pro Tempore -- a separate office.

I say that because "Federation President Ishan" makes me throw up in my mouth a little. And I want them ALL to deck him. One after another. Taking turns.

An entertaining prospect, but I suspect that violates Federation laws on torture.

One of them hitting him or all? He'd likely be unconscious after the first punch if Calhoun hits him, so he wouldn't feel the rest of them.

Sisko, but only because Ro is not on the list

I think he means making that many people be in Ishan's presence.

I voted for Sisko because watching him punch things makes me full of emotions and such, but I feel like either Akaar or Bashir have earned it more.

Good point. Of course, that makes me wonder if the law's already been broken with his cabinet members stuck having to deal with him. You know what the irony of this whole situation is? A Bajoran is the acting Federation President, and Kira Nerys- who would almost certainly have an opinion about Ishan- isn't around.

Re: Poll about something that happens in The Fall [SPOILERS]

I have to admit, when Ishan first appeared in The Crimson Shadow, it was just before the government shutdown when I read it. And I thought to myself:

"Hmm. A newcomer to the Federation Council who starts making major waves way quicker than usually, then grabs the opportunity to increase power during a constitutional crisis, only to end up furthering a threatening, nationalist agenda....

"Oh my God, Ted Cruz is the Federation President!"



(Apologies for getting real-world political. I'll say nothing further on the topic, but the parallels between Ishan's rise in the Federation Council and Cruz's rise in the Senate these past two months struck me.)

In answer to Sran: All of them hitting Ishan.

In answer to Nob Akimoto: You also have a valid point re: the torture laws.
