I'd think Broken Bow is the best pilot of all the series.
TNG: Beyond terrible, embarrassing.
DS9: I found it personally meaningful but really it's a bit clunky.
VOY: Anything with a banjo loses major points. Exciting in it's own way though.
Broken Bow is just a much tighter package than the others IMO.
Well, I agree with you about TNG. That was not a good start, lol.
I love the DS9 opener, but I do have to concede that it wasn't riveting. It's a little slow in parts, so I think I get what you mean by clunky. I never saw the Voyager opening, so it's good that show was more episodic than DS9 for me. And, I can't say anything about ENT's opener until I see the rest of it. So, I'll get back to you on that.
