    Hi!

    I watched DS9 for the first time only this year (along with TNG, VOY, ENT, TAS, DIS and PIC) and I have to say I found DS9 to be my clear favourite. It took me a while to get to like the majority of the principals on the other shows but I liked everyone on DS9 right from the off (although I have to admit that I'm still not sure about Avery Brooks' performance; sometimes it feels, ike the strongest performance in all of Star Trek, other times it's just cringeworthy. I love Ben Sisko as a character though, regardless).

    Anyway, I'm pleased to be here and I hope to be chatting with you all soon (going to be doing a spot of lurking for awhile, get the lay of the land).

    I love DS9 too. My wife thinks that Avery Brooks was over the top; in fact, she thinks that most of DS9 is too over acted. She’s not having that problem with Enterprise or Discovery. Welcome!

    That's interesting. A number of people complained that Avery was too wooden. I think he hit it just about right, calm as a captain should be when working, but also showing rage or excitment or love very well.

    I’m fine with Brooks my self. I admit that we have a few laughs whenever Gawron is present, though I do like the character.
