Hi, I'm new, and a DS9er to the core! It is my staunch and unwavering belief that it is superior over all other Trek series and I'm not ashamed of that fact. Any series that can give us characters like Kira and Dax? Seriously, I love it really hard.
I'm big into the post-series novels, as well, though they've slowed to a trickle in recent years.
As I said, I'm a big Dax fan, Kira too, though I prefer her characterization in the novels. And I'm a Sisko fan to the core as well -- all three generations.
