Well, that's not likely to happen, because that's not the way the framework works.

I would rather have the connection created and ready to use, and then just pass in my calls as needed, until the app quits (it's going to run in the background).
Fine, create it at startup, or on first need, and keep it around. Use a static variable, or some ivars & methods in your app controller class, or create a singleton class (although I don't recommend all the hoohah of enforcing singleton-ness, just create one at startup and keep it in a global variable). You don't have to, and probably shouldn't, stuff all your database connection management into a subclass of an AppleScript command anyway--probably better to abstract that into a class that deals with the database.
