Re: Article on STiD becoming like Deep Space Nine

The writer acknowledges that darker aspects of Starfleet and the Federation have been dealt with outside of DS9 with one whole (rather dismissive) sentence, but then treats that as an exceptional aspect of DS9. I agree that DS9 explored that dark side in greater depth, but it's hardly exclusive to that series (Cartright and the Khitomer conspiracy in particular come to mind as a comparison to Marcus, but there are many more examples) and STiD. The writer just kind of conveniently glosses over the points that don't fit their premise.
Yeah, Nick Meyer gave us a darker vision of Star Trek long before DS9.
