I have seen most of TOS and all of the other series, except for DS9. I have only seen bits and pieces of some episodes. Most of my knowledge about the series was picked up from browsing these boards, but really I know very little. However, what little I saw and knew kind of put me off the series. But I wonder if I'm not giving it a fair shake, and I would love to watch some new Trek if it's something that I'll enjoy. I figure who better to enlighten me on the positive qualities of this series than the fine folks of the DS9 forum. For context, TNG and Voyager are about equal as my favorite series. I love that era of Trek. I appreciated TNG for the characters, and Voyager because it was like a more whimsical version of TNG. For more context, I do not typically like the episodes or arcs that have to do with wars, Klingons, battles, politics, etc. My understanding is that these types of stories are more prevalent in DS9, which is why I've avoided the series. Am I totally wrong about this? Does the series have good character development? Should I give it a shot? What makes it special in your opinion? No spoilers please, in case I do decide to watch!
