    Does anyone else find those episodes where they go into the alternate universe annoying and stupid?

    I never got too into DS9, even though I hear it is great.

    Anything involving alternate universes and time travel in a show that isn't based on those premises usually ruins the show.

    Never got into DS9, watched a ton of TNG though.

    The episodes didn't really annoy me too much. I found them more interesting than anything. I kinda liked seeing what their alternates' personalities were like.

    I dunno, some of the best Justice League episodes were the ones where they went to other universes.

    And also episodes that centered around the Flash.

    Yeah but those are cartoons. In the 90's Spider-man animated series Parker meets several other Spider-men from other dimensions. It was pretty cool, but if it were a live action film it would just looks stupid.

    Also TNG is the only Star Trek I watched and loved.

    Nothing was worse than 90s X-Men Time Travel. Blech.

    I didn't mind the episodes. I'm always up for a little 'what if?'.

    On a Star Trek related note, I'm getting in touch with my inner nerd and watching all Star Trek series on Netflix (except the animated one). I'm through Enterprise and most of the first season of the original series.

    I thought Deep Space Nine was the good series of Star Trek? Or is that next generation?

    Both are good.

    Voyager and Enterprise are just...not good.

    DS9 is pretty good especially with the whole Dominion War stuff.

    The DS stands for Deep Space!

    I thought those episodes were fun. I love Smiley! Seriously though, DS9 is the best Star Trek TV show. Having a (relatively) stationary platform to operate the show from allowed for real story arcs, which made it that much better than TNG.
