Oh Wormhole Aliens :roll:
That is exactly what sucks about DS9.
I guess not every Trek series can match "commentaries about race ripped from the pages of Dr. Seuss."
Is that sarcasm I detect there?
Seems funny to condemn DS9 in particular for doing one of the most Star Trek things there is.
I don't see any overlap between deriding racial prejudice in 60's America, and pretending 90's (or 2020's) America is an "extremely rigid caste system built atop race and class". Last Battlefield may have been too on the nose, but at least it was relevant.

That's pretty much exactly what my grandmother said about Last Battlefield, but ok.
