Could be worse, I really don't want to be Archer.

Evil twin Archer was the better of the pair.

It's happened. Lockdown has driven me mad. I've run out of all the other series on Netflix, and I'm massively enjoying Enterprise. :oops:

I started this thread in 2012. I now release an UPDATED poll, running for the next 7 days, to ask which Star Trek series is the best in 2020! I've been going through some TNG and DS9 in recent months. Still great.

Voyager gets my vote. Love the ship, the crew (especially Seven of Nine :shifty: ) and the theme tune. It also coincided with the high watermark of my interest in Star Trek so gets extra nostalgia points.

Voyager :wub:

Wow, Voyager?
I'm a solid Next Gen guy. DS9 is next with DS9 having some real highpoints.

Choosing between TNG and DS9 was so, so difficult. But watching TNG this year has been so lovely, particularly as the HD remaster looks so much nicer than the smeary DS9 SD versions. TNG-era Picard is the leader we need in these times!

I've recently rewatched TNG, and I'm currently rewatching DS9. I'm honestly torn.

EDIT: I went with DS9 in the end, simply because its themes of the horrors of war and the effects it has on people speak to me on a personal level.

TNG all the way, DS9 is the only other serious contender

Went with DS9. I love TNG as well.

If it was theme tunes, it would be Voyager. The theme music for that show is so amazing. It perfectly encapsulates space travel and the possibilities of it.

TNG is absolutely the best, not even a contest.

I know that objectively the right answer is TNG, but I just have a soft spot for Voyager.

My main problem is the lack of character progression and that they didn't painfully kill Nelix at the end of every episode. They should have beamed the twat into space after 1 episode.

I've eventually come to the conclusion that I really don't like that ship design.

I guess it can work in a cartoon like this, I just hope they never try to bring it into any of the live action series.

I mean I know Star Trek has had some strawberry floating weird Kitbash models before but I just can't get my head around this one.
