Ever since the early/mid 70's I was a huge Star Trek fan.
When the movies came out I was in hog heaven.
When Next Generation premiered I wasn't happy (knowing it would feature an all new cast and set 100 years in the future) but I did give it a chance.
I was never a big fan of Next Gen, but I did watch it --- mostly because there was nothing better on.
Then DS-9 premiered ......
I gave that a chance too --- but this show I hated.
To me it was boring and unStar Trek like.
But, I did occassionally watch it for the same reason I watched Next Gen.
After a few years when the Dominion War plot began it sucked me in.
By the time DS-9 ended it's run I was truly sad to see it go.
Yes, it was still unStar Trek like but I think grew into its own entity.
That's more than I can say for Next Gen which still had the 1000lb gorilla around it's neck called The Classic Series.
Voyage and Enterprise was and still is totally unwatchable for me.
As far as i'm concerned the Star Trek franchise died after the showing of the last DS-9 episode.
The New Movie is cool ... but I don't count that in my timeline.
So what do you think ?
Did you like DS-9 -- especially the last few seasons too ?
