This may be the worst Star Trek take I’ve ever seen, and I’ve disagreed with many.

It’s fine to only be a casual Star Trek fan! But then you probably shouldn’t have strong opinions about ... stuff you clearly never watched?

See: First Contact and Voyager
As @MrProfChanda points out to me, sexism plays a large role in how people interpret Voyager or whether they even bothered to watch it.

Janeway is the best Captain Star Trek has ever had though. 🤷🏽‍♀️
That’s not shade on Sisko but Janeway was a nuclear engineer and captain at the same time.

Sisko has the best arc of all the shows. Also DS9 was the best show.
The Star Trek Convention #STLV starts a week from Tuesday. I can’t wait to do Cheerfleet 🖖🏽
I personally feel Voyager’s writing fell apart a little from season 5 to near the end of 7 but if you don’t know how 7 ends that’s still your fault and probably you shouldn’t be commentating on that
ALSO on a slightly more serious note as someone with PTSD — a brief moment can cause PTSD. It doesn’t have to be something that took up a lot of time to be the thing that stays with you the longest.
Just putting out there that Picard provides an opportunity to explore an invisible disability that a lot of people live with — in line with Star Trek’s primary mission to understand the humanoid condition.
The Borg are also an essential plot point that opens Commander Sisko’s entire story arc in what is the best story arc in all of Trek.
There is no Captain Sisko without Borg Picard.
