Inspired by Star Trek Online, I’d like to watch Deep Space 9 and get a better understanding of what I’m going to face in Cardassian space. At this point I’ve watched almost all of Season One, and I liked it at first, but it’s starting to bog down.
I know some people really love this show, and particularly recommend the last few seasons. When does the really good stuff start? And how much am I likely to lose from my understanding if I skip forward a few seasons?
