Re: Better if they had allowed main cast to die?
I really think the move to an ensemble cast was a mistake, as the later series all seemed to gravitate to an eventual big 3.
Well perhaps in the case of TNG, VOY and ENT. But in the case of DSN less so as it tended to be more of ensemble show.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
