It could be worse. DS9 could still be on.
I disagree with that statement. While watching repeats of DS9 late nights, I've been able to appreciate what the show became at about the third season or so--the most consistently good Star Trek besides the old cast.
I can't even watch the TNG reruns, with some notable exceptions like the Borg episodes and "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra" with Paul Winfield oh and the "There are FOUR LIGHTS!" episode.
Worf is better in DS9 and the supporting cast and insertion of the Dominion as the new uber-enemy makes it quite enjoyable. The episode where Tony Todd plays Jake Sisko wasting his whole life to bring his father back from subspace limbo, and then succeeding in making things all right again by his own suicide was among the very best Star Treks ever.
I really wish they had made a movie focused around the Dominion, rather than the craptastic Insurrection and Nemesis plots.
