Re: DS9 S5: Nor the Battle to the Strong

Wow, so many people seem to be missing the point of the episode.

DS9 isn't good because it's darker or grittier, it's good because it's mature and nuanced.

The problem with TNG, especially the early seasons, is that it treated future humans like they're just biologically better than people today, like they have some kind of morality gene or an extra lobe in their brain that makes them more ethical and moral.

DS9 on the other hand, puts forth the crazy notion that people in the future are better because society and culture have become better. People are raised to be more moral and ethical and they've learned to be better.

That's a major point of this episode. Jake acknowledges the fact that he has flaws and vulnerabilities, that recognition allows him to learn to become a better person.
