  1. Scale and scope

    I was looking for something new to watch, and inspired by @love-and- radiation decided to go back to ST:DS9. I never finished it back in the day, so after the first couple of seasons it’ll be all new to me. But right now, I’m just struck by how crappy a job they did getting the scale of everything right.

    Unlike BABYLON 5 (vastly superior in most every regard), this station feels tiny and underpopulated. Even the sfx are scaled wrong: the station doesn’t look large enough relative to the ships and shuttles. Looking at the screen right now, they could have done wonders with better lighting and background sound.

    But damn… Avery Brooks can really take over that screen.
