Re: DS9's growing popularity
That's fine. But let's not pretend TNG was on the DuMont Network of the early fifties.
I still think it boils down to too much in to compressed a timeframe. All those people who watched TNG began looking for other things to watch when it was over, they had just watched 178 hours of Trek over a seven-year span.
There were 250 episodes of Trek in the can by the end of TNG.
