I've only just realised that I'm past the point where DS9 started while TNG was still airing, so I'm now going to dance between the two shows. I always thought I would skip DS9 and go straight to Voyager, but having met a few Cardassians, Bajorans and Ferengi, I became too attached to their cultures and knew DS9 was the place to explore further. I remember not enjoying DS9 for the first couple of seasons, though I can't remember why. Just starting Emissary and the introduction via WOLF 359 lifts my spirits... I'm particularly looking forward to Quark, Rom & Nog as well as Odo, Jadzia, Gul Dukat, Kira and Gowron whenever he appears.
