Bell was a great addition to both DS9 and Voyager but he was by far the most repetitive composer. Take for example the cue in Sacrifice of the Angels when Kira and Rom get in the fire fight in the cargo bay it is almost exactly the same as the opening phaser fight in the Voyager episode Unity. Not to say his scores did not enchance the episodes he did but they had a tendancy to sound like the same score over and over.
David Bell and Jay Chattaway were my favorite Star Trek composers but yes Bell was the most repetitive! I could usually tell within a minute or two that it was him scoring the episode. That being said I loved the more dark and sober edge his music brought...particularly to DS9.
