Re: "The best and most influential Trek series"

Are we saying DSN was influential in terms of, permeating popular culture? Or in terms of the effect its storytelling techniques and themes influenced later TV shows?

A number of DSN writers have gone on to very successful later careers -- Ronald D. Moore with Carnivale and Battlestar, Ira Steven Behr on The 4400, Bryan Fuller on Pushing Daisies. So a case could be made that DSN was most influential in that sense.
