    I know that we have some Trekkers on this site. Figured this would be a good place to post all things Trek.

    Got a silly Trek meme, post it here. News from the world of Trek, post it here. If you love scanning for lifeforms, well, get your tricorders ready my friends! If you know how to reroute power through the secondary coupling, you have a place here!


    Figured I would start this thread off probably with a common question: What was your favorite Trek series on TV? Poll is posted.

    I liked them all, with the exception of Enterprise. I really didn't get into that series, but I probably need to come back at it with a fresh look.

    While STNG certainly helped to launch other spinoffs, I was a major fan of Deep Space Nine. Maybe because I'm Jewish and there certainly was that Jewish element to it, with the Bajorans, and it just struck a cord with me. At first when the series premiered, I thought, "A show solely based on a space station, how is this going to work?" But it did. I especially liked it when they brought more of the Klingon element into the story. Big fan of Klingons.

    You should have let me vote twice. DS9 is probably the strongest series of the ones you listed, but then there are those episodes of TNG that were just so absolutely brilliant that I can't vote against that series either.

    Everyone likes the Klingons.

    My favorite character on DS9 was probably Garak, but I really liked the way they portrayed all the Ferengi on the show (especially Nog, of course), and the deep dive into Bajoran culture that they only showed glimpses of in TNG were awesome. And of course, Garak.

    I was just looking at the new series that's coming out yesterday! Star Trek: Discovery

    I love Star Trek! I've watched all the series and loved them all for their own different reasons. The Original doesn't even remotely hold up when watching it now, but that's the whole reason for my love of it and Spock will always be my favorite character....and tribbles. I so love tribbles.

    TNG is probably my favorite. You gotta give props for taking on a classic cult show and making a new one. I watched that through college religiously. I think I was a little in love with Riker :D :

    I was shocked, like probably a lot of people, on how much I love DSN. Definite favs were the Ferengi. I may have to rewatch that series. I don't remember a lot from it other than how enjoyable and original it was.

    I guess love is too strong for Voyager and Enterprise. I really enjoyed Voyager and did watch Enterprise. They were fine.

    As far as movies...jeez, I love the new ones. For me, they are a thousand times better than the originals and better than TNG ones.


    Wasn't there a one season series based on Star Trek? ::checking IMDb:: Nope...nm, that was Star Gate Universe.

    Garak was simply awesome! I loved that character! His lies were almost poetic.

    It's not the lies themselves, so much as the way he lied. And how you never really knew if he actually was lying or not.

    Weidly and its likely due to the diverse cast I really liked DS9, Voyager is a close 2nd but the main original ST series with Shatner is epic and now as its been updated to HD and better sound, its something I'm re-watching as in UK TV at present the full re-run.

    Have to sya while I love the original cast in the big screen I do really like the new cast in current remakes on the big screen.

    I like most of the Star Trek series. TNG started of weak but better after meeting the Borg - so did Voyager, especially Seven of Nine...that cat suit!

    Ironically, one of the best Star Trek episodes ever takes place very early in TNG - The Measure of a Man

    I like all of the Star Trek series thus far. All have great, good, not so good, and "who phoned that mess in" shows.

    My favorite episodes from each series:

    TOS - "Balance Of Terror" that aired early on in the series.

    TNG - "Yesterday's Enterprise"

    STV - "Year of Hell" Parts 1 & 2

    DS9 - "Empok Nor"

    STE - "In a Mirror, Darkly" Parts 1 & 2

    I have other favorites, but if I need to kill a couple of hours, these are the episodes I'd choose from.

    I think Star Trek Enterprise wasn't given a fair shot . . . they were just hitting their speed when the show got axed. Also, I may* have been** kind of fond*** of Jolene Blalock.



    *Most certainly was
    ** Most certainly still am
    ***Most certainly madly in love
