Starting next month, I'm going to be watching TNG and DS9 with my wife, who has never watched them (but wants to). We don't have time for every episode, probably just 2 or 3 a week. So, my question is this: Which 30-50 episodes of each TNG and DS9 would you choose to present the best or each show, and which would include the arcs of each show (Borg, Klingon, Dominion, etc.), and which would showcase some of the best performances in each (Stewart, Spiner, DeLancie, Brooks, Dorn, Siddig, etc etc)? That's 60-100 episodes total. I haven't watched many of these since I got the DVDs in 2002-2003, so it will be fun for me too, but I haven't made a list yet. My guess is that the sequential nature of the DS9 storytelling will require more episodes than TNG, but I am open to anything.
