I prefer standalone because I'm lazy. LOL! But I think it might be neat to try mixing them together. It's just too much...work.
I guess it might be easier on Netflix or something if you're watching that way, but swapping out a DVD every episode and figuring out where you are... yeah too much work.
still, you need to have a list, and then you need to keep track of the list. So much work!
Correct. When moving to the next episode, it should be two button clicks. Anything more takes too long!

Obviously Netflix and the DVD companies are missing out by not having an intermixed playlist/DVD release!

It might be handy to watch "Journey's End", "The Maquis" two-parter, "Preemptive Strike" and then "Tribunal" - the two groups of writers did well setting up the Maquis for Voyager, even if it was DS9 who really focused on them.
Voyager did more with the Maquis aspects of its premise than people think it did; it might bot have played out exactly as outlined in the Series Bible, but the 'Starfleet and Maquis crews coming together' narrative thread is an undercurrent that runs throughout all 7 seasons in various ways.

Re: TNG and DS9: Standalone or Concurrent

I watched them more or less concurrently in order of release date, as I'm currently doing with DS9 and Voyager. As a guide I've been using the Memory Alpha episode pages, and clicking the right arrow next to "XXX of 728 released in all" to see which episode to watch next.

I think "The wounded" from season 4 feels like almost a DS9 episode.
