I don't know who made this chart, but it shows the ratings for all of the Trek seasons in graph form.

The premier for DS9 was the highest rated Trek episode ever it seems, but then it was quite the drop after and a continuous trend down with a few upticks here and there.

What a sad image.
The legacy of oversaturation.
I always chuckle when I read something like this. Over saturation apparently only affects Trek while leaving the Law & Orders, CSIs, NCISs, and American Idol clones unaffected.

I think it reflects audiences just getting bored with standard Trek storytelling. It works for fans, but I think the wider audience wants something new and exciting.
