I like every Star Trek show but DS9 and ever since I joined StarTrek.com I've tried to understand what its all about why so many people on StarTrek.com fluff this show...

I've come to this conclusion... It is a quirky show about a Ferengi bar owner and a security guard. Everything else is just filler. When DS9 tries to take itself seriously like the Dominion War, its cheesy, tacky and very poorly executed. When the show focues on Quark and embraces the fact its a quirky Star Trek show, DS9 is semi entertaining, but that usually involves fastforwarding all the other subplots (I PVR them all) which are usually meaningless and boring.

Oh by the way, Sisko is the worst over actor of all time in Star Trek and when he gets emotional I say to myself " My God, this guy sucks ass, Kirk, Picard and Archer OWN your face".

Good DS9 = Quark and Odo
Bad DS9 = Everything else

Without getting derogatory, you clearly haven't watched DS9. You have seen just enough to pass judgement on it prematurely.

Why don't you actually try watching the show?

Here is a link to where you can watch all the episodes online:

What does "fluff" mean?  Is that British slang?

Nah, we use it here in the States-it means 'no real substance'

The fact that he's using it to describe DS9 is just horrific!

DS9 online

A few months ago Rikers mailbox said consistently on this board that he likes to smoke bowls and watch TNG. In fact I think it was a thread topic he started. God knows why.

Perhaps he needs to lay off the weed for ds9. Ds9 does not go well with bowls. LOL. Watch Ds9 sober than come back here. LOL :D

When you make it to Voyager my friend my advice is to watch it high on crack. ¿:D

Anyone have a suggestion on what to be on for Enterprise?

First of all, Sisko is a character, not an actor.  The actor's name is Avery Brooks.  Now he may not have a Shakespearian background, but is a far better actor than your beloved Jonathan Frakes (Riker).  Frakes should stick to directing--has anyone ever seen him do any other acting job?  And there are episodes on TNG that are worse than DS9 could ever be.  For example, DS9 never had a "best of" episode.  Or had the "Outrageous Okuna"--or whatever.  Sisko slapped Q around like Picard should have in the first episode of TNG.  In fact, most of the first two seasons of TNG are barely watchable.  DS9 is far more consistent.  And Voyager?  Please.  One word: Neelix.  He's like the Jar Jar Binks of Star Trek!  And Enterprise?  It was okay.  But I've seen better Shatner impressions than Bacula's.

It's ok not to like DS9, but calling it all fluff is really just ignorant.  I mean, it's the exact opposite of fluff.  If you don't like that, it's fine, but let's call a spade a spade here.

Oh yeah and just to add. There really isn't any need to start another "i don't like ds9" thread every time you want to say the same thing

over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Seriously. You don't like it. Fine. That's cool. We get it already. But to be honest it's starting to get more than a little boring.

DS9 is the highest quality Star Trek. Especially seasons 4-7. The acting on DS9 is better than Voyager and Enterprise and the first couple seasons of TNG. The stories of DS9 are the best of any Star Trek. Hardly fluff.

Brooks isn't the best actor ever, but he's better than Archer (by a lot). And Andrew Robinson (Garak) is the best actor in all of Trek.
