Re: DS9 S6: Tears of the Prophets

I think, Nic, that is because the new BSG was pretty much a crappy soap-opera set in space. There was so much drama and stuff hidden behind the scenes (even the ending was vague and disappointing). They focused too much on religion and modern-day issues like rape and existential debates and such, that they didn't focus on the Science Fiction or Fantasy.

Part of what made DS9 (and to some extent Voyager) so good and sustainable over the years was that it didn't make the religion and the Prophets the MAIN focus of the series. It was a subplot, a side story that got returned to occasionally. I don't particularly think much of DS9 as a genuine Star Trek show, but more of a Babylon 9 or Stargate Atlantis style show where the focus is on the battles being fought at least in the later seasons.

DS9 also did, by far, have incredible space battles. I don't think there's anything else like it in the other Star Trek series, and not in a lot of other expansive science fiction shows, either.
