I started to watch an episode of Voyager last night and found the acting so bad that I couldn't sit through it. Granted, it was the first season and the actors really hadn't found their footing, but it was awful. I would much rather watch DS9 if I have to watch post TNG trek. At least DS9 has some compelling characters and it was more gritty and lifelike, IMO. Voyager was just a TNG spin off with the Pollyanna syndrome on steroids. Your mileage may vary, of course, but to each her own.
