Well, whenever Jellico speaks, I can only think, 'Set phasers to... dick.' I would have got a thrill seeing Picard throttle the guy, but he and the other officers present did a good job of talking Jellico down.
The sickbay scene was nicely handled, and gives the reader great insights into how Steele handles her ship and crew. As for Riker now that Steele and Troi have been talking... yeah... he's up a smelly creek with no means of manual locomotion.

Riker escapes a tough situation again. Ha ha!
Picard let his fury fly and he stood from his chair and leaned over the table. “No you don’t Admiral! NO SIR! Don’t you dare twist the definition of our own rules to justify the mistreatment of another!” Picard could feel the heat emanating from his own face. “I will not allow us to stoop to that level…or did my reaction to Ba’ku teach you nothing?!” He shook his head, “It’s a horribly convenient definition to say he’s no longer a Federation citizen when it’s the Federation that needs him most! No sir! NEVER!” Picard slammed his hand down on the table and it rocked the room.
A great tirade from Picard. This is what always rocked about him. He'd hold the reserved demeanour and play the diplomat but when it came to the crunch you didn't dare cross him. He stands for the true ideals of the Federation and it codes of honour. I think you did a great job conveying that passion and dedication.
