[I wish Jake and Ziyal had been a couple. It would have been more age appropriate for Ziyal, and would have been interesting as hell having Sisko and Dukat’s respective children be involved with one another. The son of the Emissary dating the half-Cardassian, half-Bajoran daughter of the evil Gul Dukat? Would have been interesting.]

[I think DS9 is awesome for so many things, but it sometimes annoyed me how Captain Sisko was never allowed to have a love interest who wasn’t also black… it seemed like the same racism that stopped Kirk & Uhura kissing for real was still playing out, 30 years later.]

Editor’s Note: I’ve actually been thinking about this confession for a few weeks.  Why?  Well, Avery Brooks has stated plainly on multiple occasions the deciding factor for his taking on the part of Sisko was the opportunity to show a positive relationship of a black father and son. 

As such I am almost certain that Sisko only being involved romantically with other black women (Jennifer, Fenna, Kasidy) was not due to a fear of inter-racial couples by the producers, but due to Avery himself wanting to further show further positive black families and relationships.

[I wish we’d seen more of Voyager’s social life. Did Kes or B'Elanna have any girl friends? Who did Chakotay have a beer with after the end of his shift? Did Neelix have any buddies on board? Everyone has friends and hobbies, but with most of the crew members it feels like a bit of a blank…]

[I was surprised to learn Jeri Ryan only stayed for Voyager’s 7th season due to the money. That she had planned to depart after her original 3 year contract, but stayed on for financial concerns brought about by her mother becoming ill. So few actors admit that kind of stuff. It also makes me look at “Unimatrix Zero” differently.]

[I wish there had been more characterization of crewmen and non-senior staff officers. O'Brien was one of my favorite characters, partially because his background and motivations were very different than the officers, and it would’ve been nice to have more development on the non-elite of Starfleet and the Federation.]

[A few years ago I watched a mini-marathon of deep space nine with my significant other. Later that night things got frisky as they do with significant others. And at the end, instead of something more typical like “Oh god” or “Yes!” I yelled out “Dabo!” for some reason. We still joke about it years later and can’t watch an episode that they say such in without cracking up.]
