Who watches it?.. Come on.. I'm talking about TNG and DS9.. You gotta love it
Me <3 SpikeTV
I'm fluent with Klingon.
(I'm not even sure what a Kligon is. Though I would like a phaser.)
The Star Trek variants seem to get more mundane as time goes on. The original had a plethora of social issues. It had TV's first inter-racial kiss. It had the famous episode with the two guys who were black on one side and white on the other. And the one with Dr. Severin and his Eden-seekers, where Mr. Spock turns into a hippie for a while. The interesting thing about that series, was that the science fiction was only a backdrop for the social issues. TNG is "not bad" in that regard, but DS9 seems to be a lot more about the sci-fi than anything else.
I'm more towards Voyager. I'm waiting for Janeway and Chekotay (sp) to "explore their fonal frontiers"
Definitely agree with you here. They also had an episode dealing with the ruined world of the "Yanks" and "Comms" and their interpretation of the "E Pleb Nista". Also, I think "Mudd's Women" could be an attack on the idea of physical beauty no matter the cost.
DS9 never thrilled me, and while I watched V'ger from time to time it just doesn't have the aura of the original Star Trek. Basically, I think Trek has been played out and it's time to put it to pasture.
But that's just me & MHO, YMMV.
I don't watch Star Trek but I DID like the movie "Trekkies."
Best trek style movie in a while, imo, was Galaxy Quest.
... I'm not a Trekkie, but I play one on TV ....
Anyone see the Triumph the Insult Dog harrassing the Trekkies? Hilarious.
i really enjoyed TNG because, at its peak, it got pretty exploratory in good storytelling and throwing in very smart twists. it certainly didn't push any social boundaries. the acting was quite believable -- the best "acting" star trek cast.
I saw the one where he was outside of the Star Wars Episode II premier. Didn't see the Trekkies one.
TNG did start off a bit slow, but once they changed Doctors, got rid of Tasha yar, and eventually got rid of Wesley "the Beaver" Crusher, it got pretty good. My only negative comment on TNG was they spent a bit too much time doing Shakespeare type stuff. Of course, this is all IMO.
I am a Big Star Trek fan, i do agree that each off shoot's looses the uniquness of Star Trek. I think most of the films excep ST V were great additions in the Star Trek time line.
Was ST V the "Search for God" movie? They traveled to the center of the universe IIRC.
I think ST II:The Wrath of Khan was by far the best ST movie. Riccardo Montalban's performance was excellent! At least, IMO.
Its not a forum without one of these!!!!
Accually I've never seen Star Trek.
I'm not much of a Star Trek fan, but my new cell phone reminds me of a tri-corder.
That was the theme of ST V. ST II is one of my most favorite films.
The 1st Season was about as lame as lame could ever be.
Some favourite post-Season 1 episodes-
"The Inner Light"(named after as Beatles' tune?)
Both episodes with Dr. Moriarty(especially the 2nd one with Stephanie Beacham)
Worf being booted outta the Klingon race.
Troi as a Romulan.
Picard held captive by the Cardassians.
Mudd's Women = The Stepford Wives...the original one.
Those were some good episodes, did you see the one with the Klingon Sleeper ship. Best of both worlds when picard is abducted by the Borg is up their for me.
