I finally finished my epic rewatching of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It did so many things so well, once it hit its stride, but the thing I loved most was how willing it was to compromise its characters. To render them entirely in shades of gray so that even they couldn’t recognize the person in the mirror.

It was the Star Trek Gene Roddenberry never would’ve given you. It was the Star Trek that put away childish things.
