Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Drama • TV-PG • 1993–99 • 7 Seasons
Gritty sci-fi without becoming grimdark. Never loses the sense of hope that defines good Trek shows.
Starts off rocky but ends up really good. I'd place it second after TNG.
Not as good as TOS and TNG, but it is amazing to see what war do with people even in utopia.
It was the first Star Trek series to truly tackle the difficult realities of interstellar civilization. Fabulous acting, characters.
Changes up the Star Trek formula without losing what Star Trek is. I found the side characters to be more compelling than Sisko.
Held true to the Star Trek ethos while carving its own path. Inventive and playful.
Well done with lots of lore and complex arcs. Unlike other 90s Star Trek, it's best watched in order with reasonable attention paid.
Really interesting characters. I love Odo and Jadzia Dax particularly, but all the characters have unique and fleshed out backstories.
Names after Kira. This show plays an important part in my family - truly amazing show
One of the best Star Trek series, my personal favorite. The character development is what truly makes this show incredible.
