I watched DS9 during its original run and watched it again in on DVD. It had its ups and downs, but it had a solid run. That does not mean that I would not have liked another couple of seasons of the show or at least a motion picture or animated series. I have never understood why animated Trek beyond the original series has never been attempted. It is a huge universe with so many interesting and colorful characters it seems like a natural fit for animation. If they did do something DS9 related, I would like to think the characters would look something like these concepts by Anna Rettberg.
