Come here to discuss all things Trek. I know there are quite a few Trekkies out there, so feel free to post your thoughts. For those people who hate/dont like Trek, please dont neg mod any of us. Just leave, and let us be.
1st subject: what is your favorite series?
Mine would be Deep Space 9, mainly because it deals with a darker side or of Trek, war...poverty, and suffering. It is well written, and its the only show that has ever made me cry.... :)
I consider myself a reformed trekkie. I was obsessed from like 4th grade to 11th but hae calmed down since then. All knowledge and opinions that I have are residual from that period.
That being said, TNG was always my fav, but I think DS9 has held up better. I like serialized shows a lot more these days and the last couple seasons of DS9 had a lot of that. I think that TNG had a better ensemble cast but DS9 had a stronger storyline.
I'd have to say Voyager would be my favourite... but DS9 has pulled me in a lot, since it was the only Trek on terrestrial TV in the UK for a year or 2... Damn I need satellite telly: There some channels with Star Trek 24/7 more or less!
I thought Voyager was ok...they it had some issues, like the Ship being in perfect condition when it returned after 7 years in the Delta Quadrant. Other than that the Doctor was pretty cool, and to bad that they never promoted Kim...he deserved it more then that convict. :P
but thats just one mans option.
for me its DS9 TNG ENT/VOY
I havent seen TOS and TAS yet...well technically I have seen some of TOS, its old school man, but great stuff non the less.
I think that a lot of the fuel behind what made us Trekkies died out with the recent incarnations of the series. I felt that Enterprise was trying to attract too wide audience and lost a lot of it's potential due to that. And the recent movies were more action orientated and didn't take advantage of the ensemble nature of the show. I can't speak for others, but the past few years years have not made me proud to have been a Trekkie.
I am a trekky, ill admit it to any one. My list goes Origanal TNG DS9
Never really go into voyager, caught some of the eps, I could not bring myslef to watch enterpirse, it looked to good and to new, not the graphics, but the ship, the thecnologly and the other what not to be pre origanal series
Actaully I thought the Hull Tight Shields were pretty cool in Nemesis
Just because the Romulan/Reman ships are bigger do not nesseceraly make them better. D' Daridex vs Galaxy, the Galaxy has better firepower then the D' Daridex...and even though the Scimitar was 5x bigger then the Sovereign Class (USS Enterprise E) I think Picard did a good job on holding his ship togetehr, and that the shields preformed admirably, since the Scimitar cuold fire through its Cloak, and the cloak being to perfect for even LaVorge to detect...
One of the best parts in the movie was when Picard ordered Worf to "fire all Phasers Banks, zero elevation...on my mark". Then it shows the Enterpise firing and hitting several shots on the Scimitar....then Torpedoes would follow, but they would miss...great scene.
