Since I made the TNG poll, here is one for DS9.

How would you rate this series?

I will be a good girl and abstain from the vote. I don't believe I've seen enough of them to make a well-informed opinion. Since I'll be receiving all 7 seasons on DVD in the next couple of weeks, that will change! Woo Hoo!

I went with an 8. I really liked DS9 and in many ways watching it is fulfilling to me. I believe the latter seasons are superior to the earlier ones and I don't think the show really took off for me until Worf joined it. Not just because of Worf, but because DS9 started to really find it's identity about that time.

10. DS9 is my fave Trek, period.
True, it didn't get going for the first couple seasons, but the show as a whole just rocked my world. I think what made it the best was the secondary characters. The other shows didn't have much of that, but because DS9 was a station we got to know its guest stars pretty well. In no small way, they were as big of a deal as the main cast. What would it have done without Garak, Dukat, Weyoun, or the Kai everyone loved to hate?
Actually, Weyoun alone makes the show a 10!! ;) :thumbsup:

7/10

I know the DS9 fandom will balk at this, but it was not my favorite show.

10/10

...simply for being the most realised of the Treks, and for bending some of Roddenberry's rules. A strong ensemble cast plus a whole bunch of secondary regulars. Trek's first out and out war. Trek's grittiest epsiodes along with some of Trek's best feel-good episodes. Simply brilliant.

I would vote - but it wouldn't be fair. I haven't seen enough of this show, along with VOY and ENT to make fair assessment. I can tell you I'm relly looking forward to watching them when we get the DVDs.

There's so much to take in. I think it'll be a ball!

10/10, simply because it's amazing Trek. It's a very, very close second favorite series. I absolutely loved all the characters (even the slightly annoying ones that grew on me - Tom Paris and Harry Kim never grew on me), I loved the storylines, and I loved the war. Granted, at the beginning they did occassionally have a wanting or ill-told story, but the last couple seasons more than make up for it. I also believe the last few seasons has some of the greatest episode names ever (Wrongs Darker than Death or Night, Favor the Bold, The Seige of AR-558, Tacking into the Wind, When it Rains, I could go on). Also, like Jules said, it had its share of gritty and feel-good episodes, often back to back and in the middle of a war. The Ferengi episodes (I'm sooooo glad they had a Ferengi) were uniformly hilarious, as well as offering better insight to the race that didn't get enough fair treatment by the other series, and the gritty episodes (Rocks and Shoals is a perfect example) offer a bitter ending that still satisfies.

I'd probably give it a 5/10 or maybe a 6 for the first 3 seasons. But after that, definitely a 10/10.

I giv it 6/10 ... slightly above average.

I hate storyline which is dark, otherwise i might as well watch SW, BSG, B5.

I watch Star Trek b'cos of it projects a bright utopia future which I look forward to, a good relaxing entertainment especially after a hard day work. The last thing I want is another "office politics" as shown frequently in DS9!

8/10 as this series was great, and gave me a lot of laughs as well as exciting you in that way trek does. However there were quite a few subplots that got dragged out a little too long.

Deep Space Nine started out slow and it was kinda ragged IMHO. But after Work came on the show the scripts seemed to get much better, we were shown a lot of deep inner conflicts within the crew members, there was a MUCH better showing of Klingons after this turning point and actual scripts were being written for Klingon characters. It was as if in the past (after STTNG) the Klingons were almost treated as Untouchables . . .from a Third World country . . .we knew about them but we did not really see them.

The Klingons had a culture that was full blown off of the screen, in communities like this one here, and numerous other Klingon RPG groups, Yahoo Klingon groups, Klingon Houses being formed and Klingon ships of the Klingon Navy and Klingon Marines being boarded and manned.

"Maybe" Paramount caught wind of how popular Klindom was in the Real World?

Anyways, Deep Space Nine opened up and showed a lot of Klingon lifestyles and worldviews than we had ever seen before on TV.

DS9 had a well written scrip "after-Worf came and much care seemed to be taken with small details,

I gave Deep Space Nine a "10"!

I agree that it took awhile to get its "space legs", but so did TNG and ENTERPRISE. But by the third season it began to develop into the most complex series, evolving coherent, beautifully integrated storylines and large number orf characters -- who actually matured and with whom the viewer could empathize. Plenty of action and, in true STAR TREK fashion, plenty to think about. It turned out to be my favorite series.

Welcome to Trek United rods9!!

Space legs!! :clap: :clap:

It is true enough that each show needed some time to develop. Alas..the poor early demise of Enterprise...

I haven't really watched a whole lot of deep space nine, but every episode where ben sisko is talkin' to the prophets I find a little like, annoying. I like most of the characters besides the captain, i think, unlike voyager where I like hardly anyone. so yeah I didn't vote and just wanted to ramble in this post right now. :P
