Overdue? Isn't this month about the time Syfy does its upfronts?

In DS9, I couldn't stand Keiko or the kids, or some of the P.I.T.A. Bajorans. For me, the difference in quality between B5 and DS9 is that of night and day. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being best, I'd rate B5 a 10 and DS9 maybe a 3, Voyager a 2, and with those DS9 and VOY ratings, I'm being charitable.

<shrug> I've been 110% tired of Trek for years.
Not sure what P.I.T.A. Bajorans are, but, the Bajorans only were a main plot point for the first two seasons of DS9, after than, the Religion and Politics and Mythology of Bajor faded into the background, and the Dominion Story started building. Keiko was only in 19 out of 173 episodes, only two more episodes than Leeta.
P.I.T.A. = Pain In The Ass.

How many episodes was Keiko in where she wasn't harping on Miles?

How many episodes were the kids in? How many episodes were they in when they weren't getting into trouble? That seemed to be their reason for being, much like Kim and Teri on "24."

I watched DS9 thru Season 4, and then less and less as time went on. I'm not sure where I stopped. DS9 had lots of things that I found to be irritating/annoying. Voyager had the bad hair day, Kazon, Seska, The Maquis, JANEWAY, Janeway's voice which could curdle milk and got on my last nerve like a rasp, and Janeway always droning on and on about 7 of 9's humanity. Like Battlestar Galactica 2003+, I just couldn't endure watching Deep Space Nine or Voyager all the way through to the end. It was like crawling on my hands and knees through broken glass, for YEARS. By the time Enterprise came along, I was set to give Trek another chance, and watched Seasons 1 through 3. I found Seasons 1 & 2 to be pretty bad, but it got better in Season 3, up to the last few minutes of the Season 3 finale, which sucked. I dropped Enterprise right then and there, and didn't watch Season 4 until years later via Netflix DVDs. I didn't think anybody could redeem the show after that, but Manny Coto did, up until the Season 4/Series Finale, which sucked.

For me, Babylon 5 and Crusade had none of that unrelenting irritation. Some TV shows draw you to them and are hard to STOP watching because they have a continuing thread and/or have characters and/or writing that you just LIKE and/or don't have continuing sources of irritation that PISS YOU OFF (e.g. for me, Babylon 5, Crusade, Person of Interest, Justified, Criminal Minds, The Mentalist, Castle, Grimm, Supernatural, Bones, The Big Bang Theory, NCIS, CSI, etc.), and some shows I can take 'em or leave 'em, i.e. they're just not appointment level TV (e.g. How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men, Hawaii Five-0 (2011+), 2 Broke Girls, New Girl, CSI:NY, NCIS:LA, etc.), and some TV shows turn into WORK (something to be gotten through) and/or torture (e.g. Deep Space Nine, Voyager, the first two seasons of Enterprise, Battlestar Galactica 2003+, etc.). I have a tough time keeping up with the first group, no hope of watching all of the second group and I sure as HELL don't have time to finish the third group.
