    Same here. I don`t like DS9.

    My fav is Voyager because of the wonderful characters and the great cast
    Like Moore said:
    TNG is the second. TOS is to "old" for me.

    Voyager? That's a funny way to spell Deep Space Nine! :p

    DS9 will always be my top choice. I found the stories and connections to be profound. And I liked the fact things weren't so upbeat and there was conflicts. My favorite would be "Far Beyond the Stars".

    TNG is a close second. I grew up on it and the crew was very family like. "Best of Both Worlds" is the best TNG episode ever.

    TOS- The first and the best

    DS9- The best ensemble. A worthy attempt at serial story telling.

    ENT- Underrated in my opinion. A little too fan wanky towards the end

    TNG- Three to four good seasons book ended by mediocracy

    VOY- Gave up half way through.

    I'm surprised if Moore really said that about Voyager. This is a guy that wrote for Picard, Data, Odo, and Quark. Though they did do wonders with the Doctor and Seven later in the series.

    Cite your source?

    I feel like Voyager set up some great characters in the pilot then only realized a handful of them.

    Don't get me wrong, I would put the Doctor and Seven right at the top of the second tier of Star Trek characters. :)

    That's par for the course when speaking of any Star Trek show.

    Undoubtedly, for me, The Next Generation. Having been the first series that I watched, I can always sit down with any odd episode and enjoy it. I can't say the same for any of the other shows, to be honest.

    Voyager was the first series that i got into but by the time enterprise came round I'd watched them all. I like them all for different reasons though TOS is the hardest for me to watch.

    Thanks for the invite, but there's a reason I've chosen not to watch 3 & 4: too much violence for my PTSD to handle.

    :bolian: I hear so many complaints about him, I was beginning to think I was the only one who loves him!

    DS9 is the absolute best.

    After that, TNG...then TOS...then VOY...then ENT.

    I really do not know . . .
    Star Trek, of course - isn't that why they call it TOS . . . The Only Series.
    I do enjoy the Animated Series as well. A few great episodes there and more than a few more good ones.

    It really isn't any more violent than the rest of the franchise.

    I really have a hard time answering this question.

    My "favorite" series is pretty much the series I'm currently watching.

    It's DS9 right now :techman:

    Deep space nine is easily my favourite. I also enjoyed Enterprise a lot and find Voyager the most difficult series to enjoy.

    When I last re-watched the entire franchise over the past year or so, I gave every episode a letter grade, with each letter grade assigned a numerical value as shown below:

    A (4.0), A- (3.7)
    B+ (3.4), B (3.0), B- (2.7)
    C+ (2.4), C (2.0), C- (1.7)
    D+ (1.4), D (1.0), D- (0.7)
    F (0.0)

    With grades assigned to every episode, each series averaged out as follows:

    1) TOS - 2.854
    2) TNG - 2.848
    3) DS9 - 2.843
    4) ENT - 2.825
    5) VOY - 2.817
    6) TAS - 2.305

    And for extra credit, here's how each individual season ranked:
    01) TOS 1 - 3.14
    02) TNG 3 - 3.13
    03) TNG 4 - 3.13
    04) DS9 5 - 3.09
    05) ENT 4 - 3.07
    06) TNG 5 - 3.06
    07) DS9 4 - 3.03
    08) TNG 6 - 3.01
    09) TOS 2 - 2.97
    10) ENT 3 - 2.96
    11) VOY 4 - 2.94
    12) DS9 6 - 2.91
    13) VOY 5 - 2.90
    14) DS9 7 - 2.87
    15) VOY 6 - 2.87
    16) VOY 7 - 2.80
    17) DS9 3 - 2.75
    18) VOY 3 - 2.75
    19) DS9 2 - 2.73
    20) VOY 2 - 2.72
    21) VOY 1 - 2.70
    22) ENT 2 - 2.65
    23) ENT 1 - 2.65
    24) TNG 7 - 2.59
    25) TNG 2 - 2.54
    26) DS9 1 - 2.42
    27) TNG 1 - 2.38
    28) TOS 3 - 2.38
    29) TAS - 2.30 (whole series)

    Its gotta be the Next Generation, first one i watched and always seems "homely"?
    For a while DS9 was second but Voyager pips it to the post lately.

    Deep Space Nine.

    I started out a TOS fan back in 1984. I was 4 at the time, and my mom got me watching. When TNG premiered in 1987, I was onboard, and eventually became a big TNG fan. DS9 came out in 1993, and I watched a few episodes, but wasn't anywhere near hooked. The same with VOY when it premiered. I watched the pilot, and a few episodes after that, but essentially ignored it. This would also go for ENT when it premiered. Somewhere around that time, I received a whole box full of Star Trek VHS tapes from a friend, and I watched them. ALL of them. It was the first time I watched DS9 all the way through, and I was hooked on each episode. I couldn't stop watching.

    A year or so back, I did another DS9 rewatch, but thanks to Netflix instead of old VHS tapes, and it still stands as my favorite series overall, with TNG and TOS tied a close second. Following those is ENT, then TAS, and VOY is last.

    Niner for life.
