Re: How do Niners feel about TNG?

The first Trek I watched and loved was TNG, but, as others have mentioned, I think DS9 surpassed it. It was while first watching reruns of TNG that I really picked up on the smugness of some of the characters (Picard going on about how noble humans are makes me gag) and the more I come across Wesley the more I dislike, well, not so much Wesley the kid as what the writers allowed Wesley to do (I don't care what the Traveller said and how much of a wunderkind Wesley is; teenagers do NOT belong on the bridge or in senior staff meetings IMO). DS9 had deeper character development and the characters had a wider range of strengths and weaknesses. The more often I watch it the more I enjoy it, while my feelings stay the same about TNG.
