I am a little disappointed that DS9 is not caught up to Destiny, so that they could be utilized in the series more. Seems a shame, mainly since DS9 is my favorite. I do see that as a strange choice, to have not allowed DS9 to catch up before we read Destiny, but oh well.
I just didn't want to sacrifice four years of valuable story time for the arbitrary goal of lining everything up, especially with all the cool stuff that happens during those four years.
Put another way, if DS9 is your favorite, then I assume you wouldn't want the creative decisions for Destiny
to be made at DS9's expense.
