What's your financial situation? Are we talking unlimited resources or will you have to pick one thing and stick to it for years? (also...when we start the meat eating, will you be wanting prime?)
I'm more of a Voyager fan, but I sort of suspect that Enterprise, especially the latter seasons, would be more useful for you at this time. The new movie is almost certainly going to reference Enterprise in some way, so having seen it will make for a richer experience.
