    Always been a NG fan personally, the old ones are okay and voyager was alright (gotta love 7's borg implants).

    I dunno episode titles but I always liked the big creatures in space episodes and the crazy life forms episodes (across all of the star trek incarnations). The original had a few...That Bugel that ate suns comes to mind.

    I hate holo deck episodes so much it hurts. "Sweet star trek! Crap data is dressed as Sherlock homes, what else is on?"

    I havn't got much time for the original Star Trek, but I love Next Gen and DS9.

    Patrick Stewart is the man! He and Ian McKellan are in a play here in Newcastle soon, I would like to see it.

    FYI Hulu has all the old episodes on it. So it is easy to catch the TOS version. I loved all of the Trek incarnations including Enterprise!

  5. It's been a while since I watched an original Trek. I'll go watch one right now.
  6. Darmok is my favorite TNG episode. Don't care much for TOS.

    TNG hasn't stood up to repeated viewings the way that TOS did IMHO. I find most of them pretty tiresome after the 3rd or 4th viewing. And +1 on the holodeck episodes!:spit:

    DS9, otoh, has gotten better with repeated viewings. I love the War with the Dominion storyline, and a lot of the other ones as well.

    Voyager? Kind of meh.

    I am in the small minority that loved Enterprise, and was very upset when it was cancelled. Best series since TOS, IMO. And holds up very well to repeated viewings.

    While I think you are insane with that comparo, :), I didn't mind it...I mean, any reason to have Jolene Blalock go into heat, well...

    Seriously tho, What is UP with that Enterprise looking sooo much more modern than the TOS Enterprise, if it predates it? I mean even the JJ Abrams revision has the Enterprise looking decidedly more refined and sleek, and less the "Borg killer" style from the Enterprise E onward...

    I think "buffs" is not really an accurate term describing Star Trek fans.

    Tribbles (Dave Gerrold) and City on the Edge of Forever (Harlan Ellison).

    Plenty of other famous and good ones, but those are "must see."

    Spock's Brain is definitely a high water point in the show's history!

    The writing in season 3 was spotty.
