Re: Best Star Trek Series
The first two seasons of all of the shows from TNG onwards are largely crap.
TNG and DS9 improved immensely, Voyager only slightly and Enterprise season four was rather good.
Personally, I think The Next Generation
seasons one and two were the most creative of Modern Trek and made space seem like a vast wilderness. A feeling that was quickly lost in season three and they never recovered even when using locales on the other side of the galaxy.
