UPN didn't want Year of Hell to last a season.
UPN wanted Temporal Cold War.
I'd say the network did more damage to Trek than B&B ever did.
It really pays off being first run syndication like TNG and DS9 were, no stupid network "ideas"!
Are you saying the network wanted "These Are The Yoyages"
Believe me, there's plenty of blame to go around, but IMO B&B deservedly get a lot of flack for their own very poor decisions; and IMO, that's justified.
