Oh, I soooo wish that thread wasn't closed; I tried all I could to make sure it was opened but my sensible pleas fell on deaf ears... The lesson of my efforts was that even if one is right, it does not always matter with the powers that be. As creator of that thread (and this one for that matter), the critique of Sio Bibble was not meant to be hateful but amusing and eye-opening as a different take on the character. To answer your question, I believe Panaka was initially incredulous to what was going on; as head of security, he should very much know that a communications jamming is a serious threat and a sign of open hostility. The Queen on the other hand seemed to be wise to the situation, but she was torn on what to do.
