With that logic, we might as well re-write every single episode that had the potential to be "so much more."
And what's wrong with doing that? Episodes that have the potential to be great SHOULD always be great. It's just that the quality of the writing doesn't always live up to the potential of the story idea, and that's why we get episodes like Message in a Bottle and Conspiracy; episodes that are good, but not as great as they should have been.

It's not like the writers planned a DS9 crossover and failed. The episode was never supposed to be a DS9 crossover in the first place.
Doesn't change the fact that this could have, and should have, been an epic VOY/DS9 crossover.

And honestly, the crew of DS9 was a lot busier with other things (like, ya know, the war). The Defiant would have had no reason to be where the Prometheus was.
A rewrite would solve this. Find a way to tie the Dominion War and/or the crew of DS9 into the story. If necessary, rewrite the entire story from the ground up. Not that hard to do when you think about it.
