Re: "The best and most influential Trek series"
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
was never a UPN show; it was syndicated all seven seasons. However, many of the stations which carried it were UPN-affiliated stations, such as WUAB in Cleveland. ILM did some early work on TNG, and built some of the early Enterprise
-D models, but never worked for DSN.
