I understand the reality and the behind-the-scenes stuff, and I'm glad things happened the way they did for the sake of DS9 being allowed to have some creative freedom, but I just thought from a story perspective that having some of the DS9 cast as part of Voyager -- as a concept -- would have been cool. In reality, would the characters have been ruined and DS9 gone in a different direction? Possibly. So yes, I'm glad things happened the way they did. But the idea of some of those characters being swept off into the delta quadrant as an alternate spin-off series (as an idea), I just thought it was interesting.
