->In some ways, you could say all seven seasons of ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' were one complete story, with [[FourLinesAllWaiting several major plot threads and story arcs that (incredibly) shared equal time]], and [[MergingTheBranches frequently converged upon each other in unexpected ways]]. [...] [=DS9=] was the densest, most involved, complicated version of [[Franchise/StarTrek Trek]] that ever existed. While I admire all hell out of the show, itís surely this complexity that hurt it in the long run. It simply was never as accessible (hence, never as successful) as [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS]] or [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]] or even ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]''. Heck, I even have to admit that [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Enterprise]] is a lot more accessible to the casual viewer than ''Deep Space Nine''.

->Iím not going to bitch about dense continuity. I love references to past stories. The problem here is that thereís not any actual references. I mean, just look at the scene where Omegaís backstory is explained so that viewers know who he is and why they care.\\\
Oh right. There isnít one. Thereís one line from Chancellor Hedin about him, and thatís it. Itís difficult to stress just how idiotic this is. This is a character who [[HijackedByGanon has appeared once before in the series, a full decade prior to this story]].

->Too much of the Creator/ColinBaker era felt weirdly continuity-heavy, as if the people behind the show expected viewers to have an in-depth knowledge of the showís extended history. For any show, that sort of expectation is toxic, but itís particular damaging for a family show which is older than its target demographic.

->The problem is that [[SlowPacedBeginning the show getting 'good']] coincided with it becoming completely impenetrable to new viewers.

->As much as I have complained about having to watch this show as an adult for three solid seasons now, when I was a kid, I loved it. I had a paperback reprint of the [[Creator/ChrisClaremont Claremont]]/[[Creator/JohnByrne Byrne]] story where the team gets trapped in Murderworld thatís one of my formative comics experiences, but the show hooked me and made me the kind of kid who begged his parents to go to the comic book store so that he could get the latest issues. I dove right in, and was thrilled by this new, complicated side of Marvel superheroics. Until, that is, we got to ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse''. I went to the comic book store and heard that all the ''X-Men'' comics had been replaced with alternate universe counterparts and that this was going to continue for ''four months'', and decided to just read ''ComicBook/{{Gen13}}'' instead.

->In my humble ''([--[[CoughSnarkCough koff]]--])'' opinion, Bob did as much to help destroy the comic book industry during [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks the 1990s]] than any other single human being alive... For years and years and years, the editorial philosophy at Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}} was to make each and every comic book [[TheChrisCarterEffect as labyrinthine and confusing as creatively possible]]. Marvel had the single highest-profile comic book in the Western hemisphere -- ''X-MEN'' -- and Bob did everything imaginable to make it completely incomprehensible and inaccessible to new and/or casual readers. Everything. 'But, Mark...' I hear the whine. 'But, Mark, Bob kept the X-books best-sellers in the industry during his tenure.' Technically true -- but let's look at the sales figures. Over the last six years, the sales margin between the X-books and their nearest competitors has dwindled from about three-to-one to barely 1.5-to-one. Woo-hoo. Cigars, everyone.
