Ratings are based on a four star system.
One star means that the commercials are more entertaining than the program.
Two stars watch if you have nothing better to do.
Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

The seventh and final season of was so uniformly excellent, and included so much internal continuity, that there does not seem to be any point in assigning "star" ratings to each individual show. Every show was worth three or four stars. My favorite episode was "Trechery, Faith and the Great River," by Philip Kim, Bradley Thompson, and David Weddel, but the season belonged to Ira Steven Behr and Hans Beimler, who wrote eight of the twenty-six episodes, including the first two and the last two. There were also major contributions from Rene Echevarria, who wrote or co-wrote seven shows, and Ronald D. Moore, who wrote or co-wrote six. One of the things that made this last season great was the ensemble acting, including the cute new regular Ezri Dax, and a large number of interesting supporting characters, such as Rom, Nog, Grand Nagus Zek, Gul Dukat, Garak, Kai Winn, Kor, Martok, Gowron, Kasidy Yates, Kieko O'Brian, Vic Fontaine,... the list of memorable characters could go on and on. One mark of great fiction is memorable characters. Most dull fiction has no characters who stick in your mind. The acting is uniformly excellent, but special mention must be made of Jeffrey Combs, who plays two recurring characters, Liquidator Brunt and Weyoun.
