I hate that Starfleet let Sisko play messiah and all that. It seems like an incredible indulgence. Also I would have hated to have served under him given his feelings that these phantoms that a bunch of backward yokels think are their gods have given him some glorious purpose-that would make me a Starfleet ensign, lieutenant or otherwise feel very uneasy. I mean what if the "prophets" tell Sisko to randomly select one his crewmen as a sacrifice or ask something bizarre. I just wouldn't like that. I read somewhere somebody said the federation ought to be kissing their posterior because of the sacrifice of angels-Deus ex machina. I would be as an admiral yay-now lets bomb the wormhole finish off the cardassians and remaining dominion forces and forget about it. Also I wouldn't want my destiny, much less the destinies of 900 billion people put in the hands of a bunch of inscrutable, powerful beings who more than likely don't have my or the federation's best interest at heart.
