Really? Vastly superior? I'm not arguing an opinion, I'm just surprised.
As a story, yes. B5 was produced as a continuous narrative which none of the other Trek series were. I found that far more satisfying than Trek, especially the TNG era shows. B5, Farscape, Stargate, all have been more entertaining to me. JJ's films have brought back the fun which I associate with TOS and found very absent from TNG Trek.
