I can agree to that.

No.

And when Amazon Voyager TAKES DOWN your 11 years of baldness with its awesome POWER OF THE TRESSES you will experience fear, fear in the face of certain death.

Both were hot, IMO.

But if I had to choose, I'll go with bob too.

Maybe I'm crazy but I enjoy watching VOY more than TOS. TNG is my favorite, I have yet to watch DS9 or Enterprise.

Unfortunately, a hairpiece didn't always make Patrick Stewart look younger.

I don't think it's really fair to compare the series. They all had their strong points, they all had their weaknesses. They all had really good episodes, they all had bad episodes.

Why isn't it? I think it was a series of progression (no pun intended). I truly feel like we consistency got progressively stronger stories the longer Trek was going on. I also feel like we (collectively as fans) also got collectively more critical too, and on many points some of criticism was very fair and on some points it wasn't.

Watching the series for tried and true progression, Enterprise was better then Voyager which was better then DS9 which was better then TNG which was better TOS.

They all have their memorable points. They all have things we love about each series. They all have things we hate about the series. I won't deny that there are prejudices each of us have that will elevate one series above another, but really, I think its hard to objectively say strictly from a technical stand point, the newer the series, the better it is with one important caveat: Robert Picardo made a very good point in "The Captains (2011)" when he said no Star Trek series really got good until mid way through season 3; that was when each series really started to find itself. TNG, DS9, Voyager and Enterprise all have that one episode right around season 3 where everything all of a sudden seems to finally work.

Honestly, after hearing that and really seeing it in action after thinking long and hard about it, I've always wondered how much better Star Trek TOS may have been after season three if it would have gotten four more seasons. Heck, I'll admit, I keep wondering how much better Enterprise would have been. Season 4 was really, truly, the best Star Trek ever seen on screen IMHO. I dare dream how cool seeing the Romulan War on screen and the formation of the Coalition of Planets would have been.

Re: Voyager v.s. The Next Generation and Deep Space 9

I vote "voyager".. I'm not sure if I voted it was the best of the three, or the worse. The poll is a little confusing.

For me it's simple - whilst there are some voyager episodes I struggle to watch, there are far more DS9 episodes that I couldn't sit through and I haven't found a single TNG episode that I've been able to watch. In the case of the latter I don't think it is because TNG was a bad show, just that it has aged really badly. Whereas with DS9 and Voyager I don't have that issue.

As for DS9 been unwatchable... Jadzia Dax. I couldn't stand that character, and it turned me off the entire show. It was until season 7 that I could really enjoy it and one season isn't enough to get me over the line. Yet, I really love the idea of the trill. I think well done, it could give a character real complexity but I didn't feel that with Jadzia.

Jadzia grew on me from utterly meh to a good character to bounce Quark, Bashir and (in a slashy way) Kira off of. Grew on me over multiple rewatches so it took a while.

Ezri was enchanting from day one.

Re: Voyager v.s. The Next Generation and Deep Space 9

I am starting to rewatch DS9 from season 1. Only half a dozen episodes in, but I haven't turned it off mid episode yet. There are so many fans of it, I figured I should give it another go and since I have recently hooked up with netflix, it doesn't cost me anything. Maybe she will grow on me.

Ezri I absolutely loved and I wish we had more than one season with her.

No Janeway though, so every DS9 episode has a few Voyager in between - Trek without Janeway is just missing something for me.
