So I got some 24/7 channels on my Amazon Firestick which include 3 Star Trek channels; The original series, Enterprise, & Deep Space 9.
Been watching the DS9 channel and all they show are Season 1 episodes and nothing else ???
And of course I turn on and what's showing? 'Move Along Home' ::)

ONLY season one episodes? Yuck, that's rough. You have my sympathies RVR.  :(
DS9... for as much as I LOVE that show it does have its share of stinkers. Move along home, Profit and Lace... oh yeah, those episodes were BAD. As bad as they were though, Deep Space 9 does have a rep for overall(at least in my mind's eye) being a great series. In fact I can't even think of any other really bad DS9 episodes besides those two.

Yeah, and then there's 'The Forsaken' with Tog :speechless:
 
Turns out the Star Trek Enterprise channel is actually The Next Generation and it's only showing season one episodes as well ???

I think you'll like DS9 but Voyager was hit or miss with me, mostly miss  :-X

Voyager was certainly mostly misses.  It did get somewhat better in the later seasons with the Doctor and 7 of 9 getting some good character development.  But if I added up all the episodes I watch when I'm going through it I'd guess there would only be enough to fill one season, so 1 in 7 are good enough to watch multiple times.   I'd say half the episodes are meh, they are watchable but forgetable.  The rest are like, "what the fork were they thinking".

There’s something amusing about Voyager winning an Emmy for one of its worst episodes.  Granted it was a Special Effects Emmy, but still...

Yep.  Won a Primetime Emmy for Makeup.

Edit:  Yeah I misremembered which Emmy it won, but still...

Uh-uh, I don't believe you. I mean it's just that the only things the Borg ever say are "You will be assimilated" and similar other kinds of boring yet threatening stuff.
