Also, +10 for mentioning Braga's hardon for 24. Ironic a bit, because Manny Coto brought him onto that show during the last season... and his episodes were not bad at all.
It actually kind of pained me to learn that Star Trek made Jeffery Dean Morgan feel like quitting the business.
I think Braga can be a good writer, when it comes to single episodes. His troubles were probably story arcs, and being a show runner having to dream up a season long story. He's probably strongest at stories that wake the audience go "What the fuck?" Like in Cause and Effect
where the episode teaser ends with the Enterprise blowing up, or Genesis
, when Picard and Data find the Enterprise is overrun with de-evolved crewmen. I enjoyed those episodes.
