Hey, the fact he even knows about the animated series (and
New Voyages) make him geekier than your average person, even if he's way below the level of geekiness of your average TrekBBS poster. His observations are pretty interesting, especially proving that to the quasi-casual viewer Seven of Nine did get name recognition. She's the only character from any show he mentions. It also confirms that DS9 is often best known for "Trials and Tribble-ations", at least out there. Where I
am, DS9 is best known as the one with Colm Meaney (and is still pretty popular), but that's perspective.
