Re: How many reset buttons?

Babylon 5 changed everything.

The Narn Centauri war in season two, the shadow war, the moral decay then liberation of Earth, any of the personal arcs of the characters that saw their moral compasses just flip wildly for completely logical reasons...

DS9 broke their 1950s cop show paradigm and tried play the long game like... You know the DS9 reset button that really pisses me off still every moment of my life, the first two episodes of season seven, have some really interesting introductions of Dax to all and sundry and then some absolute conflict with worf and I'm waiting for some escalation the next week, but in stead it's Take me out to the Holodeck and they're all buddies playing baseball.

Of course some bile did ooze up 3/4s of a season later after Ezi and Worf slept together.
