The reason for my thread is this, I NEED new Trek. Therefore, can you niners direct me to the best season with which to start the series? 2?3?
Honestly (and with all due repect), I would advise you not to bother. Unlike the other series' set in the "Star Trek" universe, DS9 really builds upon itself. To try and shortcut your way through its 7 seasons would create cracks & pits in the foundation of the larger story being told.
Also, if you strongly dislike Cmdr. Sisko now then I doubt your disposition towards him will change enough overtime to win you over, and since he is the focal point of the series (on a number of different levels) I think you'd find yourself swimming against the current.
Just tossing in my two-cents.
