Re: Seasoning Season 8
A very fannish notion it might be, but I'd have liked to have seen a 'proper' crossover between TNG and DS9. Maybe as one of those epic sized two parters so that they could afford to employ more than one of DS9's cast to appear.
Never been a fan of crossovers. They never seem to work as well in action as in theory.
J.J. Abrams didn't change Star Trek, audience expectations did.
