    If DS9 is getting more popular, it could be thanks to its format. Long-term serial storytelling on television has really blown up since DS9 was on the air. These days it's getting hard to find an old-school episodic drama on TV that isn't a procedural of some kind. That just wasn't the case in the 90s.

    Having multiple seasons of heavily arced content available all at once on Netflix or DVD helps, too. It feeds into that "just one more episode" mentality that the other Trek series (mostly) just don't have.

    I wonder if Babylon 5's stock has been rising, too...
