It really confuses me why the studios kept the "make it like TNG" mantra for so long, it eventually killed the franchise on television. I think a show like DS9 would be stellar in todays climate.
All things considered... DS9's staff wasn't -that- much darker than TNG's... what made the show great was the support staff and the continuous story that tested our heroes resolve.

Can you really imagine DS9 running for seven years without Dukat, Rom, Nog, Weyoun, Martok, Damar, Zek, Brunt, Ziyal and the rest of the support cast? These people are what gave DS9 life and drama.
