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

I've heard a lot of people say Voyager is the worst of the three, one of the worst series.

But I've also heard a lot of people say Voyager is the best series EVER.

I'd like to settle it right now.

Doubtful anything will be settled "right now" about anything.
Some people will say TNG is better than the other two.

We all know TOS rules all.

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

I've said it before and I'll say it again; I think anyone who thinks Voyager is clearly better is looking at the others (TNG in particular) through rose colored glasses and voyager through darker colored glasses.

Voyager felt far too much to me like "The little ship that could" during its premier, but now that its almost 20 years since the series launched and I've seen it in rerun a whole bunch of times now (and rewatch the series about once a year), I've really come to realize its written a lot better then I gave it credit for in premier and I think a lot of fans are the same way.

Truthfully, the lessons the writers, producers and directors learned in TNG and DS9 culminated in Voyager and started to towards the end of Enterprise. If Enterprise didn't get cut off in its prime, I think it would have easily been recognized as the best Star Trek series; that simply demonstrates each series has gotten progressively better.

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

In the past couple of years I've rewatched TOS, VOY and ENT. For the most part, I've enjoyed myself. Up next was TNG - but I couldn't make it. The show has aged terribly. The acting and direction is poor (the direction is so awful, they literally stand around taking turns to recite lines), the morals are trite and the action is next to nonexistent. Deep Space Nine was the first series I got on DVD, and I still haven't been able to bring myself to watch it.

Therefore - Voyager wins.

Had to vote against Voyager. I like it, but as far as I'm concerned it is the worst Star Trek series.

The poll doesn't specify whether you're supposed to vote for worst or best.

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

^Indeed.

Anyway, TNG vs. VOY might be interesting, but DS9 is, for me, better than either one.

And lumping TNG and DS9 together skews the results regardless of what the question is supposed to be.

Agreed, the poll should also include TOS and ENT and be in the general Trek sub-forum. As some people might not venture into the VOY sub-forum further skewing the results.

TNG for me. I personally believe that DS9 is the worst of the three - wooden acting being the biggest issue.

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

DS9 started out all right, but all the obsession with space battle scenes is not what I watch Star Trek for. If I wanted big space battles, I'd watch Star Wars (and I don't mean that guy with the threads).

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

(blinks) Obsession with space battle scenes?

Beyond a certain point, the series was portraying a war between two major powers. Battles were inevitably going to occur, and I believe they're in the minority of episodes.

Anyway, sorry if the show wasn't to your liking.

I suspect the OP was just looking for a comparison of the shows set in the 24th century.

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

Amusingly I can't tell whether that's intended to be worst-best or best-worst.
