^I liked Emissary, but I actually think Caretaker is the best pilot. Nice way to introduce the characters, and there was some good action.
Even though I'm no big Voyager fan, I'd still put their pilot second. It was good, but as unfair as it is I can't help but judge it knowing that the good setting up they did was pissed away all too quickly.
DS9 slowly built a mighty skyscraper on the foundations Emissary
laid down, whereas it felt like VOY just started building a new house every few weeks.
