I cut my teeth on The Next Generation (or TNG as diehard Trekkies refer to it) as a wee lad. After that it was Deep Space 9 (DS9) and Voyager. Those
three are more-or-less set in the same timeline, but there are only two or three episodes where the universes overlap (Voyager visiting Deep Space 9
for a resupply or somesuch).
The Original Series (TOS) I've watched for pure nostalgia. It's a good one to watch just to pick up on the humble origins of the series in general.
I'd say A good place to stars is with Next Generation, and then branch out to the movies in that story arc, followed by Deep Space 9 and then
Enterprise (the latest series produced) takes place,timeline-wise, before even The Original Series. I haven't watched much of that YET, but it does
look like it's a good watch.
The two JJ Abrams movies, in my opinion, are truly wonderful (if you can excuse the gratuitous lens flares), but not a very good start-off point for
the fact that they splinter the canon timeline away from the original Gene Roddenberry stories.
Hope that helps you decide!
