Pain is an illusion of the senses; despair is an illusion of the mind.
Better than I expected. The lack of obscure god-like beings incited a few less facepalms, though the occasional presence of a Bajoran wasn't exactly the best shoved-in reference of past Star Trek series. The convenient magic science was, I guess tolerable and completely negligible compared to that nonsense in DS9.
