My 65 year old father and his 28 year old girlfriend both dislike DS9. They started out on TNG, then I showed them VOY (I had a long lost gay brother who introduced me to it), and while they loved those, they got bored of DS9 being all "about some space station." The have only watched a few episodes, but I want them to enjoy all Star Trek as I do, from TOS to VOY to ENT.

Everyone here nuts over DS9, so without spoiling the plot, why is it good? Specifically, what differentiates it from other treks, and what captures that classic star trek in it? A bonus question would be why should they care about that stable wormhole and why is everyone flocking to it? I haven't gotten that deep into DS9 yet myself, so I don't have much to say to convince them to watch it. I just feel like, "You liked Voyager- the sky is the limit."

Here is my story of how I found Star Trek. Growing up, I would always laugh at Trekkies and cool them nerds. I thought that anyone who liked Star Trek was a loser and I felt superior to Trekkies. That all changed when I turned 19. I got my first girlfriend and I lost my virginity. I saw the complete series of Star Trek the Next Generation in CEX. Having lost my virginity I saw no harm in watching Star Trek. I watched it and it rocked my world. Then I bought the complete series of Voyager and my girlfriend dumped me. I cried and drank a lot but Voyager helped me through that dark time. The Doctor's character arc really touched me and Voyager changed my life. I love you Star Trek and I love you Trekkies.

I was born in 1978 and my mother (and father but to a lesser degree) was already a trekkie when I was a kid. Mom was super into sci-fi and we went to the used book store at least once a week. She had every published star trek novel, and wrote two herself, although neither were published (top geek). We had 30 some-odd VHS tapes with pirated copies of TOS. We had been subscribed to Starlog as long as I can remember.

My dad is a theater professor, so we already knew Patrick Stewart from RSC tapes that my dad showed his classes (pic related). When we heart that Stewart was going to be captain of a new Trek we flipped shit.

We spent Saturday night (10 pm sat airing in AK) together as a family down in the basement where the "good" tv was. I rode out all of TNG then, but lost touch around DS9 and VOY, both of which (and ENT and TAS) have been wonderful to find in my adult life.

I was born in '84 and both parents were Star Trek fans. It's one of the earliest shows I remember watching when I was quite young. I've always watched Trek.

I was born in '89. I remember watching reruns of TNG and later DS9/VOY as a child with my dad but don't have much memory of it either than that it happened. It wasn't until earlier this year that I decided to take the plunge and get into seriously watching Star Trek. I've been watching them in order and I'm up to the middle of Voyager right now. VOYS3E21 is my next ep. Sadly I didn't watch by stardate because I didn't have any trekkie friends to tell me to do so, so I went TNG+movies, DS9, and now am on VOY.

I've seen a bunch of randomly spaced eps of TOS and I don't think I'd have the steam to watch it all the way through, it's just such a different form of entertainment. And I don't think I'll ever watch ENT all the way through already knowing about master gourmet chef fatriker

I was born in '73. My only Treksposure was a couple of TOS comics and a novel, then my father took me to see Wrath Of Khan.

...I think I just realised where my fear of bugs getting in my ears comes from.

Anyway, I had only seen the movies, then I rented a couple of TOS episodes on VHS, and I was like, that's Scotty? Where did the rest of him go? And someone else said "We've been wondering that for years."

This is a comforting announcement, he's written some good episodes. Set course for cautious optimism number one.

Season 6 was a lot of fun
You've just got bad taste. I bet your favorite Trek are the TNG Movies.

Also, it's bad form to bring up logical fallacies when your first post's entire argument rests on a straw man fallacy.
