Let's take the "Lower Decks". The episode works so well because the Bajoran cadet dies. Many of DS9's war stories like "The Siege of AR-558" work because it shows people who suffer and die.

Death has been too often been too "Teflon" in Trek, be it zapped redshirts in TOS no one cared for, be it death reports without faces in TNG, or be it resurrected main characters like Spock and Dax or Kirk and Data in the respective non-canon media.
