I voted for TNG. When TNG first came out, I thought, how could they bring back Star Trek with a whole new cast? I thought I wouldn't like it. Turns out TNG is my favorite Star Trek of them all!

BOTH! I love Star Trek; pretty much anything except some DS9 & Enterprise with their "love affairs" is awesome.

I think most of us could do without the 'love stories' in all the various Trek shows but imo DS9 had the most interesting ongoing arcs with the wormhole, the Dominion, Odo and the Changelings,  and the beings in the wormhole.

There was nothing quite like that in TNG , Voyager or Enterprise.

I vastly prefer the original series. You can't beat the Freudian id-ego-superego of McCoy, Kirk and Spock.

Voted for both which might be a cop out but I think the ensemble cast is stronger in the original but the stories and themes are deeper in TNG

Agreed Doc.  DS9 was really great.  And fans of DS9 should really make sure to check out Babylon 5.  Great story arcs and memborable characters...maybe even a little  better than DS9.  Provided you make it through the first season.  The first season of B5 was a bit rough but man did it they ever kick butt from season 2 onward. 

remember

Without a doubt I voted for the first original series Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) , love him, loved him in Boston Legal too. Plus he released a prog track too: From Cleopatra Records comes the Official Video for Ponder The Mystery from the Album of the same name with William Shatner and Billy Sherwood.

Babylon 5 was a great sci-fi series......depth of characters and plots. It also had a more 'realistic' and 'gritty' feel than many other sci-fi series. 
I think all the Trek shows are worth watching and of course the original will always be loved simply because it was the first and created the iconic characters but of the later ones DS9 had a much better storyline.
