I just don't think the destruction of DS9 can be justified.
[. . .]
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?
Me, while I'd have liked more DS9-specific content in recent years, I found Janeway's death believable, I actually find Ezri Dax a different kind of awesome from Jadzia Dax, and don't see any improbabilities with Sisko's development in RBOE (bad things happen to characters we like, sometimes because of their own choices).
I can't wait to get my copy. Friday?
