Apparently, get a season 4.
It was all shot 4:3 aspect ratio because those series were all long before HDTV. Best to leave it that way. You can stretch it to 16:9 but it makes everyone look fat. Just turn down the room light and pretend the TV is the old style.
I hate what CBS has done to the Star Trek image to be honest. Instead of including some very talented creators, they sued them to keep them from getting their movie made instead of bringing them into the fold.
I really wanted to see that fanfic movie, "Axanar". I think you can still get parts of it in, "The Four Years War Part III: Prelude to Axanar".
It is a movie dealing with the first Klingon War and featured Garth of Izar who first came into the ST lexicon in "Whom Gods Destroy" S3E14.
I like Gul Dukat but Commander Tomalok was also memorable:
He was played by Andreas Katsulas - the same guy who played the one-armed man in Harrison Ford’s ‘The Fugitive’:
And as G’kar on Babylon 5:
Stewart, Warner, and Ian McKellen are all best buds in real life.
I recommend you just avoid looking at the hair. Train your gaze elsewhere. It works for me.
I have watched 2 episodes of Deep Space 9.
The acting and directing is so awful I don't know if I can continue. Does it get better?
Go to some of the Worf-heavy, VERY Klingon episodes in its upper seasons. Or the episodes that feature scenery-chewing Cardassian actors (you can find the best eps. by looking at their plot sypnosis on IMDB.com). Or the brilliantly done, hilariously amusing episode, "Trials and Tribbleations" in which they went back in time to the original episode "The Trouble With Tribbles." Where they perfectly merged footage of the DS9 characters with the actual footage of that original episode so it's perfectly seamless. Even if you don't like DS9 it's still one of the visually interesting, well-blended episodes of Star Trek you can imagine. And just as funny.
Just keep watching DS9. It gets better. Although Avery Brooks' stilted delivery never gets better. If you can't stand Quark, you won't like the series. He's fairly prominent. The wormhole is the center of the action more than the station.
