I rewatched it.
It annoyed me more
I found the same thing recently. Seasons 1 to 4 had me hooked, but by the mid-point of season 5 I was losing interest and by Equinox I found most episodes were starting to annoy me (but not Equinox itself - still one of my favourites) much more than the first time round. I haven't really got the motivation to carry on to seasons 6 and 7 unfortunately.
, hope you enjoy going through the series - there are definitely some episodes in there among some of Trek's finest offerings worth sticking round for
