Thanks to Tivo and Spike TV, I’ve just finished season seven of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the final seasons of Deep Space Nine. Deep Space Nine suffered by comparison with Babylon 5. Deep Space Nine had the budget; but Babylon 5 had the writing and the vision.
But Babylon 5 aside, Deep Space Nine was my favorite Star Trek Series. It spent more time developing characters and its story line had more coherence and depth. Star Trek may have lost its way since, but Deep Space Nine stands as a reminder of what Star Trek can be.
