As I kept bringing up in the last few BSG writeups, I’ve recently completed my second DS9 watch, and as promised, here are my thoughts about the underrated “Star Trek” series.
In a word, wow.
But let’s back up for a minute.
(Obviously, some spoilers ahead)
Somewhat haphazardly, Jim and I decided to sit down and watch the newest “Star Trek” film. We’d seen the movie separately and enjoyed it (in fact, we both own it), but one thing led to another, and we ended up watching most of the other movies together too (I passed on the bad ones, but like a trooper, he toughed it out).
It’s been quite a ride, so much fun in fact that we both decided to rank them (separately, for extra fun). It was his first time viewing for most of them, but as it’s been a little while for me, it was an awesome re-watch for a franchise that I don’t revisit enough (plus, I got him to start watching DS9. Mission accomplished!).
So, here are my rankings, from worst to best. For Jim’s list, check here.
(We didn’t include the newest movie, mainly because it’s starting its own line of movies and doesn’t quite fit in with this bunch. And of course, spoilers ahead.)
