As everybody wants serialized TV these days I seriously doubt that my idea will materialize but one has to point out that Trek has been good precisely when it built its cosmos, not when it swam in the void like in the beginning or in its own piss like in the end (and like it still does).
I don't disagree with you here. As you know, my favorite TV Trek was always TNG, DS9 gets love from me too.
