However, I kind of wish the visuals had changed throughout the seasons to show that they were entering new parts of space on their journey home.
That would have been pretty cool - a new intro for each season, maybe? - though it's hard to imagine them topping the one and only for sheer pretty-planet effects.
But overall, I think the TNG opening sequence is the best of them all because it's the most emblematic. It has a very strong and recognizable theme that translates very well into music the spirit of Star Trek expressed in that famous spoken intro. The sense of adventure and wonder, the drive to "boldly go" and explore. And Patrick Stewart's rendition of that intro gives the whole thing weight and substance. It's burned into my brain.
Quite. I wonder if it would have worked to mix the TNG intro music with the Voyager theme, sort of like:
