Re: Better if they had allowed main cast to die?
DS9 was about an interstellar war, yet the only main cast member who died was killed off only because of a contract dispute not because they WANTED to get rid of her. If not for that, NO ONE in the main cast would've died.
Which is a lot sillier than a ship on an extended deep-space mission having it's crew survive.
That DS9 has the same fault VOY has doesn't make it not a fault.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
