I saw only part of the first season of DS9 and didn't care for it. Too cheesy and far too predictable. I will say that the later series' had hotter and hotter women. Dax and T'Pol are more than a little better looking than Uhura or Troy IMO.

I vividly remember as a child being very worried for weeks that Dr. McCoy was dying, because I had missed the end of the episode where his Xenopolycythemia was cured. The third season had a few klunkers, but overall it was far ahead of any other SF show of the time. (So that makes me a "Trekkie" and not a "Trekker", thank you).
Elementary school - we ALL watched the reruns. We memorized the reruns. Before cable and internet, we got home from school, and the TV offered us Flintstones reruns, Banana Splits reruns, and Star Trek reruns. So either mind-numbing tripe, or Star Trek. They tried an animated series, but it just didn't cut it. Flat boring animation, Majel Barrett and James Doohan voicing pretty much every alien, just didn't fill the void.
We were SO excited when the first movie was coming out! And then it was SO dull, and un-Star-Trek like. Joy returned with Khan, and the subsequent even-numbered films.
TNG - again SO excited to have a series back. But the first season was pretty lame - you would think they would have gotten science-fiction writers, but no. Third season was when it started to really rock. "Best of Both Worlds" is probably my favorite.
DS9 - good from the start. A few weaknesses - it got very soap-opera-ish toward the end. If you missed a week, you were pretty lost. But overall, solid. Sisko rocks, and the Ferengi crack me up. And I can never get enough of Worf. (OrTribbles!)
VOY - Basically flawed premise. Sending them out, getting them lost, and putting them on a possibly endless voyage back home. Lost in Space, Space 1999, Battlestar Galactica, sorry it's been done. Besides that, however, good characters, good aliens, good writing. I like it, even if I would have given it a different basic premise.
ENT - never managed to get interested in this one. I've seen a few, and they're OK. But it's just too limited. Anybody that we "meet for the first time" in the other series is unavailable here. And if we meet any really interesting new aliens, then it's inconsistent that we don't see them in the other series. They just limited the scope of their creativity too much by backtracking.
TNG movies - mostly OK I suppose. I haven't managed to see Insurrection yet, and Nemesis was disappointing. (They got the wrong actor for the Picard Clone. The kid who played Picard's nephew Rene, and then played 12-year-old Picard in a later episode - that's who they needed.)
Now for a new series, they should go outside of StarFleet. The Federation has got to be full of civilian shipping and passenger liners, but we rarely meet any of them. I want a series where we do.
