I wasn't actually arguing, I was agreeing. And lamenting that things were the way they were. Thankfully, when in need of a much larger expanded (and explored) cast there is another Trek show to go to.
I wasn't really arguing either, just expounding, & I agree that if you want character exploring Star Trek then DS9 is the way to go, obviously, but I was always more a TNG guy, because the voyages of the Enterprise is where it's at for me, & they were the first to start exploring characters at all, compared to TOS. They could have stretched it a bit more, imho, but seemed tentative about doing so
I actually preferred Robin Lefler, who was featured slightly more than Gomez, & infinitely less obnoxious & green acting
