Re: Why no Maquis flashbacks?

Highlander had great flash backs but why would Berman watch Canadian television?

The B's didn't have to be creative.

They had a perfect model.

Creativity would have pissed off their audience.

If they just kept making TNG they would have been fine.
They did flashbacks during DS9 and TNG and Braga was all for doing Season 4 as Year of Hell. I'm guessing that UPN's "no/minimal continuity, planet/alien of the week" mandate probably made the writers less inclined to explore the Maquis.
