I'll quote

"I would rather my self take the chance and do it my self, then to have them do it"

The things we did out on the plant were pretty scary, It wasn't a big deal for me to walk on a 4 inch wide beam three stories up at the time, but I later found out my step dad was very scared for me even tho I could do it, and he had been doing it him self for years.

The script I copied just kinda stuck out at me, it can really be related to just about anything in life. A Parent, a moderator on a forum, a Military commander, or a plain supervisor. At least thats what I pulled from it?

kg4kpg I can consciously say I would give my life for my soldiers, family, and civilians. Nor would I order my troops to do something I wouldn't do. We'll go into battle together or not at all. My personal safety comes after theirs. I feel tham same in my civilian life as well, if I won't do it, I won't make you do it. Just remember my WF buds, I do what I do for you, hopefully it makes a difference somewhere. Did I stay on subject?

Not exactly what this thread was about, really wasent about the flight 588 either.

I just wanted to know what you got from the script that was posted.

SISKO
You made a... military decision to
protect your ship and crew. But
you're a Starfleet officer, Worf.
We don't put civilians at risk --
or even potentially at risk -- to
save ourselves. Sometimes that
means we lose a battle... and
sometimes we lose our lives. But
if you can't make that choice, you
can't wear that uniform.

WORF
Yes, sir.

SISKO
Now all that being true... the
reality is... no harm was done.
There are no dead children on your
conscience. You got lucky.

WORF
I do not... feel lucky.

SISKO
And that's why despite everything
that's happened... you're going to
make a helluva captain someday.
Now, let's go... they're all
waiting.
(off his look)
Look, this party isn't for you as
much as it is for them. Things
got a little tense there for a
while, and they need a release, a
chance to celebrate.

WORF
But I do not feel like
celebrating.

SISKO
Maybe not. But part of being a
captain is knowing when to smile
and make the troops happy. Even
when it's the last thing in the
world you want to do. Because
they're your troops, and you have
to take care of them.

WORF
Life is a great deal more
complicated in this red uniform.

SISKO
Just wait until you get four pips
on that collar. You'll wish you'd
gone into botany.
Took this out of the script of one of the episodes based on the "Iran Air Flight 655" incident.

Elaberate on how you feel about what sisko is trying to say.

How does it make you feel?
Do you think its right?

I'd like to hear what some of the ex/current Military members feel on this subject, but everyones opinion is welcome.






There was also a "7 Days" episode that touched on the same subject.
