Re: is star trek DS9 best star trek series

I don't really rank the star treks I like.

I used to, but then I find it just depends on what mood I'm in to what I like more, and then I'm constantly changing my rankings, and in the end it's just a go-nowhere thought process... they all have strengths and weaknesses.

I just have star trek shows I like, and star trek shows I dislike.

I like TOS,TNG,and DS9.

I dislike Voyager and the majority of Enterprise.


Beyond that, I find it impossible to rank which is my "favorite" or which is the "best"

Re: is star trek DS9 best star trek series

I have to say that DS9 is my favourite after watching Enterprise, TOS, TNG and watching all of DS9 and 5 seasons of Voyager...Enterprise is what got me into Trek in the first place...but I love DS9!

Re: is star trek DS9 best star trek series

I think this totally depends on the generation you are from and the kinda person you are. For me I grew up on TNG re-runs & DS9 was being aired for first time. For others who grew up during the orginal series would say TOS is best and will always be the best for them. I love DS9 for it's epic arc story along with B5, they bring back memories

Generally that may be true, but it's not necessarily what generation you are from..

I was born in 87, grew up watching TNG, and for a long time it was the only trek i enjoyed. These days, I probably watch TOS more than any other version of trek. I find it to be the most fun to watch and that gives it more replay value for me. I think in a lot of ways it's the best show. I'm not saying it IS the best show though, because like i said before, it really depends on my mood, and I can't really decide which is the "best".

Re: is star trek DS9 best star trek series

Definitely not. Couldn't get into it at all, nowhere near as good as TOS or TNG.

(IMO of course)

DS9 is neither the best nor the worst Star Trek TV series.

Well the conclusion is there is no best star trek series. "Each to his own"

Re: is star trek DS9 best star trek series

I think you can make a convincing case for TOS, TNG and DS9.

DS9 obviously didn't make the impact on popular culture that TOS did, nor did it ever achieve the recognition and popularity that TNG attained (and retains, at least to a degree).

It also benefited immensely from the groundwork laid by those two shows.

A lot of what makes DS9 interesting is the way it revisits some of the same stories and ideas from previous Trek shows, but from a fresh perspective. In some cases, long-time Trek writers were consciously doing this, while questioning some of the utopian ideas in Trek that had become almost a sort of dogma on TNG. For that reason, DS9 has aged much better than TNG, and I think it will continue to do so.

The main case for DS9 rests on the overall quality of the writing and acting, the depth of characterization, and the willingness of the producers to experiment and try new things. It's an uneven show, but at its best it can be really great.

Re: is star trek DS9 best star trek series

well all the ST shows are uneven, DSN just happens to be one of the least unbalanced of the shows.

Re: is star trek DS9 best star trek series

Without TOS there wouldn't be a DSN.

TOS wasn't perfect, it had a somewhat lacklustre third season. But it's first 2 seasons are gnereally good. And it must have done something right to still be remembered decades later.

I love DS9. Randomly tune in into an arbitrary episode and have a great time with a great cast of very well developed characters. None of the other ST shows have that.
