Thanks to Netflix I have been re-watching Deep Space Nine and I have to say I am still impressed, I remember it getting good in Season 3 and then so on but even the earlier seasons the writing is deep and interesting as it was in the later seasons. DS9 unlike The Next Generation & Voyager didn't have a maturing period, DS9 got right into it on day one. It has grown into my favorite Trek spin-off. Personally I think its superior to both TNG and Voyager for one simple reason, out where DS9 is, there is no paradise there are only people and we all know people are imperfect. The Enterprise-D exists in an Utopian world where everything goes the good guy's way, even when things get too dicey, even on Voyager you had a slice of Federation paradise in the Delta Quadrant and you had to keep the ship alive or otherwise the show would have been cancelled. In DS9 they had the guts to straight up destroy the Defiant and not even blink and even had the enemy take back the station. Plus the Captain gets a bittersweet ending away from his crew who breaks up and does their own things. It felt like the Beatles broke up ;(.
In all DS9 is far superior to any Trek out there. TNG is cool and so is Voyager but there can only be one king and that is DS9.
