DS9.... baaaad? when vs. TNG?

TNG was good, but too much technobabble. Trek should be about the characters. That, IMO, is what made TOS such a hit.
VOY was the oppisite, IMO. it started good, and then went downhill. I was never a Seven of Nine fan.
ENT was god, but I had a few problemn, what with it being a prequel and all.

So, it's tied for Third place, with TOS taking first and TNG second. Wow, almost in order. Stupid Voyager messing it up :@

I'm doing the same thing with DS9. I've never watched it before and I'm currently working on the 1st season right now. I have to say...there's not much going for it so far. Avery Brooks is a terrible actor. He has a voice pattern that, to me, is more obnoxious than Shatner's and he doesn't sound like he means everything he says.
Kira is an annoying *****. That's all I have to say about her so far. lol.
I'm really hoping it gets interesting soon.
Go delete your anti-DS9 persona.

Yes, it does get a lot better, but Kira will remain moody. DS9 suffers from the same problem as all other treks, it's a bit slow to get going. TNG improved a lot after season 2 as well, particularly Deanna Troi's role.
DS9 is my favorite Trek, mainly because it's darker and less episodic than the others. TNG is a very close second, though!
You know I just re-found this place and I love it. I am amazed how we all love ST and at the same time can have such differing likes and dislikes.
I for one can't watch DS9 at all. For me Enterprise comes 1st then TNG then Voy... , then the movies then DS9. Oh TOS is cult status for me so it's on a whole other level. And truth be told I can't get through so much as 1 episode of it.

I Love DS9, and i Think it's the best Trek ever. not a "sweety" like TNG, not so intelectual "empty" as VOY and more Trek as ENT.
BTW. Friend of my in Poland said interesting sentence: "Lern to love ENT, it passes so quickly." In polish it sounds better .

DS9, though, started out not very good but became brilliant - its interplay of history and the people going through history was just brilliant.
I'm thinking of basing my fan series after the Dominion War, by the way, so I may be biased.

Avery Brooks plays a black man with pride as he should. I think we are so used to seeing white faces in command that it makes his potrayal different not bad. I really admire Brooks style of acting I think it really works.
