Okay... obviously GrowingTheBeard and SeasonalRot are matters of opinion. But the "hardcore" fans believe that the show was at its best before "Ourboros," and everything went downhill after. However, the show did poorly even in its early seasons, with reviews specifically citing its Narmy nature and storm of cliches. Both these elements are noticeably lessened after "Ourboros," with the show taking a somewhat more serious tone (but still lighthearted compared to other scifis of its type at the time), characters gaining less stereotypical personalities, and human villains with human motivations as opposed to mindless monsters. The latter were also.... well to be blunt, the Magog are like something out of a children's show, when they actually appear onscreen. This troper has to conclude that the "hardcore fans" haven't actually re-watched much of the show since childhood, and/or just haven't gained much exposure to SpaceOpera so they don't notice the cliches. Some fans on the internet have outright expressed disappointment in re-watching the show, with their viewings as adults contrasting drastically to their nostalgia.

* Aditionally, most of those who call themselves "hardcore fans" haven't actually ''read'' the famous Robert Wolfe's ''Coda'' script, but only descriptions of it. While it plans for the crew to end up as the leaders of all the factions (which is awesome), those descriptions usualy fail to mention it also ends in an ''horribly'' anticlimatic cliffhanger, and with the characters knowing that one of them (but having no idea who) is bound to die. Some fans have actally stated to be ''glad'' said Wolfe's vision wasn't what finally happened with the series.

TheCulture fell some time after Earth became a member - Earth and its offshoot colonies became the dominant in The Commonwealth because they were too far away from the main branch of TheCulture.
