Why Deep Space Nine is the Most Realistic Star Trek Series

This is a great article on Den of Geek talking about the realistic take DS9 has on the Star Trek universe. One of the things I say on The Orb all the time is that DS9 took the ideals of the Federation and asked what's it mean to really live like this, especially in a universe that does not share those beliefs a lot of the time. This article does a great job of pointing out where DS9 really challenges us to ask the hard questions through it's 7 year run.

Re: Why Deep Space Nine is the Most Realistic Star Trek Series

Family should have been the first thing on the list. The first images of the series were of a man dealing with his son and the loss of his wife. The last were of a son pondering the loss of his father. Sisko's relationship with Jake may not have always been at the center of the series, but there was always O'Brien with his family, Quark/Nog/Rom, Worf and Jadzia's marriage, and even Odo's tense relationships with other changelings.

Very interesting read. Highlights all that I loved about DS9. Not only was a it a great Trek but a great TV show in its own right.
