Sure the other four series explored strange new worlds, but DS9 really fleshed them out. Definitely DS9 had the best character development and overall plot. To say nothing of the phenomenal use of their supporting characters.
Certainly each of the other series had their strengths, and some of them individually may have outweighed DS9, but in my opinion DS9 definitely had the best overall package.

I also have some great memories of rushing to whichever friend's apartment we were closest to, claiming a section of a crowded living room floor, watching the show, and discussing/critiquing/laughing sessions when it was over.
*sigh* I miss those times.
