I'm beginning to think you didn't even watch the final two seasons of DS9. They were by far the best, with 4 and 5 up there as well. I have no idea what you're talking about with "copping out" - the final two seasons revolved around the war with said foe, and the show was overall the darkest grittiest Star Trek by far. But I guess if you're phobic about there being other plot lines and interpersonal relationships mixed in then yeah the shows various romances and bromances could scare you off
They retake DS9 and ... wedding. Character building episodes. I have seen all of DS9. Several times. Have it on my hard drive. They copped out. Unless they burned fx budget on special affects and space battles, all they ever did was mention the war.
Seriously, in the middle of it, Sisko is playing baseball with Vulcans. I mean, wtf.
Definitely can never rule out the Yankees, but they're the Yankees and if Prince was on their radar I don't know why they'd have waited this long.
The Yanks are legitimately trying to get under the luxury cap
