Yeah, it's best to end something before it dies a slow death.
Are you freakin' nuts?
We're Star Trek fans. Not ending things prior to a slow death is what we're all about.
I mean, think about it: Beating a dead horse is what we do best.
Okay, so maybe sombreros are beginning to suck.
Voyager sucked and it lasted for 7 whole years! Christ, even though the franchise was technically brain dead and on full life support, they gave us Enterprise and somehow managed to keep it going for 4 additional seasons.
By all rights sombreros deserve to stick around for a couple of years. At the very least, until Trek XI hits theatres. Anything less, and you don't deserve to call yourself a true fan.
