Re: DS9's IMDb rating - 7.8?!?
IMDB ratings are essentially worthless and I pay no attention to them or Rotten Tomatoes scores. Star Wars fanboys will systematically downgrade anything with Star Trek in the title. And some people don't care for science fiction in any shape or form. The classic Forbidden Planet only rates 7.7, with more votes than DS9.
