Thus the greatest flaw of TNG. Patrick Stewart sounded English not French. Maybe the universial translator was messed up.
A conversation of TOS vs TNG (and other modern ST series) is difficult. Both brought something very different.
TNG was perhaps the best series (of the newer stuff), however, it has flaws, and I think a ST fan could agrue DS9 held together the franchise the longest after the peak of TNG. DS9 brought new fans in, for the most part keep TNG fans.
So while I may prefer TNG, I may have to tip my hat to DS9, as it continued the universe when TNG was running dry (helping projects like TNG movies, VOY, and ENT).
