Well I voted for I love both, but I do prefer DS9 to TNG.

TNG definitely has the better actors, but DS9 got graced with better writers so they had better characters in the end.
Was it better writers or more free writers? The more I watch the Blu Rays for TNG, the more I think how egomaniacal Gene Roddenberry was and I wonder if Gene was completely hands off, how much better TNG would have been.
Well Gene pretty much handed the reigns over to Berman by season 2. Season 3 and up is when TNG started getting better. But as great as their episodes were, there weren't many continual story arcs.
