Of the first five ST shows, DS9 is my favorite by far.

It really finds its groove in later seasons, where there are much longer, continuous story arcs across numerous episodes or an entire season. It's turned out to be perfect "binge TV" now -- made in the 1990s before such a thing even existed -- but it also made it difficult to "jump into a random episode" at the time, since you had to know what has been happening before and leading up to the episode...

(...and hope that televised reruns were shown in the correct order.)
Fortunately that issue with continuous story arcs isn't a problem on streaming platforms. Most people just binge watch nowadays anyway.
