trekkie, ive got a 12 inch model of Captain kirk on the bookcase.
You need to watch the 2009 Star Trek film – raises the bar to a new level….
Yep, watched it a year or so ago, really enjoyed it, new one looks pretty good! But there’s something about the naffness the series offer, aliens with blue skin, blonde hair and funny tentacle ears!Posted 4 years ago
What I struggle with is the inability for technology to update,
ie. episode in enterprise has a visitor from 900years in the future with a 3D ‘Avatar’ style display (technology not all that far away today) and Captian Archer is in awe!
Maybe a tad petty as you’ll always have inaccuracies.Posted 4 years agoprojectMember
The first star trek was the best, Captain Kirk the first inter racial kiss with Ohura, Mr spock the freindly alien, all the aliens otherwise out to kill people, and they all looked surprising human shaped,turbo lifts able to go sideways,the predeseor of a kindle/tablet for gathering information and small black tablets for using in a computer, like a large sd card.
Wonky sets, polystyrene rocks, lots of sandy sets,etc etc.Posted 4 years ago
that chronological list is fracking brilliant, but it doesnt include the animated series!
sadly im unemployed but i still dont have the time to watch them all
little known fact but Deep Space Nine is one of the greatest TV series ever made
although TNG probably has the best scene ever to grace a viewscreen

“Battlestar Galactica is the best TV series ever.”
Original or remake, with less Dirk Benedict and Lorne Greene?
I have amazing memories of the first series. The Cylons, or so I believed then, out cooled Stormtroopers and the stories were über exciting…
…except, I’ve just watched the first couple of episodes with my son and it’s a huge disappointment. Slow. Talky. Hardly and Cylons. 🙁 Now my son’s asking me what all the fuss was about and I don’t know what to say.
I’m with Cougar on DS9 – not nearly as pants as it first appeared. Next Generation, on the other hand, never fails to annoy the hell out of me – especially when beard boy Ryker gets the con.Posted 4 years ago
Picard > Kirk
Ryker < pretty much any character you care to name.
I’ll raise you: Data <<< Spock
Same ‘let’s play with the idea of new emotions’ story lines, but with Spock it kind of worked.
And don’t even get me started on the lad Crusher and the guy with the hairclasp for digital eyes.
TOS cast were basically cool, and that even applies to Walter Koenig. TNG only worked as well as it did because of Picard, who was like Gareth Bale playing for Wales.Posted 4 years ago
