Oh yeah I hear you. You know, Cannibal, I was thinking, it may be better actually to watch Voyager before DS9. Voyager does feel very much more like a star trek show. It's from a federation starship, they do find new life and new civilizations so it is very much more trek-like than DS9.
I like DS9 more, it's the first show that's told outside the perspective of the federation. All the other shows are from the view point of the bridge of a federation ship, DS9 is from the pov of the people who live on that station and many of them are not part of the federation so it does give you an interesting perspective on the world trek takes place in, so yeah, after Enterprise, I'd go with Voyager and then hit DS9!
