Re: Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)
I just don't think the destruction of DS9 can be justified.
Bad enough it's been neglected and forgotten about for so many years after being the source of the relaunch itself, and so successfully I might add.
To return to her only to then totally take her away forever?
No, I can't tolerate such. It's too much.
I feel like Picard in First Contact. They invade our space, and we fall back. Assimilated entire worlds, and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here. This far, no further!
They've killed Janeway, they've neglected DS9, they've made Ezri Dax a Captain, they took a pretty big steaming one on Sisko's character in the last novel to feature him (which I'm hoping they repair/retcon) - but to destroy such a key piece of AQ real estate, the very setting and heart of one of the series?
No, too far.
If it's done, so am I. May not count for a whole hill of beans, but... it's where I draw the line.
If the only 24th century Trek we're ever going to get again is to be done at the cost of so much? It's not worth it. It's too great a sacrifice.
Will you make them pay for what they've done?
