Giving us a darker, richer, more character-driven series than the previous two incarnations of Star Trek (and most TV Sci-Fi), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine set out on different path and changed the genre forever.

Running counter to Hollywood’s long-standing (and self-perpetuated) myth that woman can’t lead blockbuster movies, the top three films of 2017 all had female leads. Perhaps a shift is coming?
- Star Wars: The Last Jedi – $533 Million
- Beauty and The Beast (2017) – $504 Million
- Wonder Woman – $412 Million
- Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 – $390 Million
- Spider-Man: Homecoming – $334 Million

Apparently enough people are signing up for CBS All Access to warrant a second season of the newest entry in the Star Trek family.
Six episodes in, what do you all think (or are you, like me, waiting until the season wraps and binge it all)?
