Re: TheGodBen Revisits Deep Space Nine
Thank you for the rewatch TGB. I generally agree with the points you made, so I'm left with little else to say.
If B5 had had, IMO of course, a stronger first season and hadn't fumbled the ball at the beginning of the fifth (JMS has some interesting thoughts on that), it might have made for a more challenging comparison. As-is...let's leave it at the fact that I own all of DS9 while I've never felt especially tempted to pick up S1 of B5 even knowing there are some (at least a few) quite good episodes to be found there.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
