CBS (ended 1994)
| The thing that is so good about star trek is the stories of every single episode is compelling. |
How is Jean-Luc Picard today and in the future?
|I am going to buy all seasons of the next generation|
bbalint85 ??? who are you?
the next generation is amazing!
and yes.. i have the dvds.. terrible video transfer is right..i have a 150 inch screen.. and i can see teh lines as clear as day.. they obviously never rendered this series in very high quality.. anyways.. the later star trek was obvioulsy shot with better equipment.. i havent watched yet..but im assuming enterprise will look just gorgeous..
|haha, i've watched star trek since it aired in 1987. I was born in 1983 . my mom was a trekkie and my family used to sit down as a family and watch TNG. I was 4 years old (Don't worry, she never tried to teach me Klingon, lol). Since then I've probably watched TNG 4 or 5 times through. It's my favorite show of all time. It's pretty corny sometimes and the acting isnt the greatest, but the dialogue and pace of the show have never been matched by any other TV show. Picard is simply fantastic. The rest of the Star Treks are ok. I've seen all of them. Don't bother with DS9, waste of time. My next favorite series was Enterprise, which was unfortunately cut short and ended on Season 4 (Season 1 is kinda slow but speeds up after a while). You should give that one a try too. Voyager is good too except for Neelix. I ALWAYS wanted to punch his Talaxian face. Also, as far as the timeline, it is left unknown after Voyager. I really hope they have at least one more series which takes place after cause if you've seen Voyager all the way through, ie, the last episode, you'll know what I'm talking about. Voyager is a bad ass ship! armor plating? wtf? yeeeeeeeeah!|
hey, don't dis DS9! it might not be everyone's thing, but some of us love it!
Welcome to all the new trekkies
I've grown up on Trek, and love it all (except the last episode of ENT- if you watch that show NEVER, EVER watch the finale!!) I was born in '87, so I'm as old as the new generation of Trek. (please don't let the new movie destroy everything)
[QUOTE="WingcommanderIV"]Yo, STar Trek is awesome. If you really like the next generation, I can't tell you how much you'll like the original series, because the problem is a lot that happens isn't reall canon. Like they do stuff, and starfleet does stuff, and acts differently than they do in the next generation, or even in the movies. Personally, if you want to have the cannon Star Trek experiance watch in this order: (Star Trek The Original Series would go here, but again, it's really not required viewing...I mean it's fun, I love it, but I don't really consider it Canon) QUOTE]
How can you not consider TOS canon! Without TOS, the rest doesn't exist... How can you even consider yourself a fan without respecting what started it all! And who are you to say what's canon and what's not! Everything until half-way through TNG was Roddenberry's work, and he connected it all, and so did his successors, therefore everything is canon that was shown on TV. Yes, you are entitled to your own ideas, but that particular one is mind-numbing.
|Yeah im sorta new to it too, my dad bought all of the season box sets of voyager and asked me and my sis to watch it with him like everytime he watched it, and so eventually we just didnt have the heart to keep refusing him so we watched an episode, then made him go all the way back to the start, lol! Anyway my twin got COMPLETLY hooked and i was into it aswell so now were i think just ending season 2 of TNG (my dad also has all the seasons of that) and personally i think voyager is better but if anyone has seen all of both can i get your opinion please??|
I liked TNG the most. If you can ignore the pathetically dismal first two seasons, it really achieved a unique balance between Roddenberry's uplifting vision, drama, adventure, and character development. I only wish that it could've benefitted from some of the improved special effects of its spinoff shows. That said, I've seen about 80% of DS9 and and 50% of VOY and I think that both are excellent shows, and I don't understand why they never fared too well in the ratings. The only one that I disliked was ENT.
