I wished they would have ended the series as sisko being a writer and everything being inside his head. The series finale was bad.
You realize that would have invalidated a lot of what happened in the Trek

It wouldn't even be the first series to do the 'it's all in the head of a not-quite-sane person' - Buffy the vampire slayer was there first.
