    DS9 is the best! I love TNG but most episodes are the problem of the week. By the end everything is wrapped up in a neat little package and then next week it didn't matter what happened last week. DS9 was so exciting when they were on the verge of losing to the Dominion.

    The last season of Enterprise with the Xindi conflict was also very good.

    I was told by a purist Trekkie once that I am not a Trekkie, but a Trekker - Trekkies saw Star Trek in its original run - Trekkers are those of us who grew up on reruns.

    I would imagine that someone who got into TNG should be called a Trekster.

    Yeah Voyager!! In high school I set an alarm each Sunday night and would wake up to watch it since I had to be in bed early for band or show choir before school the next day.

    TNG got better and better with each season (sort of like Simpsons which had awkward 1st season graphics), while Voyager and Enterprise got lamer and lamer towards the end.
    DS9 did not have a good premise for each episode. The Dominion War was one long boring war.

    Agreed

    This surprises me because TNG practically makes me cry every episode. Its fun to watch from start to finish to see how characters progress, and how the actors become better at their roles. Worf is fucking terrible until around episode ~18 when he starts to get his shit together. I like the way he says things lol.

    But the intertwining relationships between the cast of TNG is sooo good, I mean Beverly and the captain, and crusher.. I mean they all like tie together perfectly. Riker and Deanna... I mean the chemistry between characters is incredible.

    .. And the attention to detail in all of the costumes and props, I mean, you have to hand it to them in the 80's before CGI could have done all that, and everything is leather and luxurious.... I friggin love it.

    I caught "live" or currently running episodes of Enterprise when it was originally run on so technically, I could be considered a trekkie.

    Same here! It's on reruns on one of the local digital subchannels. It's surprising how much I've forgotten.

    The worst actors are the admirals. icon_lol.gif

    How illogical for a Vulcan to stand with such poor posture. The show, from the few episodes I saw, was seriously flawed.

    DS9 was definitely the best. But I watched every episode of every series. Probably all of TOS too. Although I suppose it's possible I missed some TOS.

    The early TNG uniforms were very hard to get out of, if you want to pee. icon_lol.gif

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starfleet_uniformsWe hated our space suits. There were no pockets in them. As much as they call it a stretch fabric, spandex in that configuration doesn't give all that much. It hid nothing. ”

    —LeVar Burton, on the first two seasons' uniforms[6]

    In the show's early seasons, the uniforms were one-piece jumpsuits made of Spandex, and sized slightly too small so that they would be stretched when worn and provide a smooth appearance. The cast disliked the uniforms' painfully tight fit and lack of pockets,[6] and after doctors warned that they risked permanent skeletal injury, the actors persuaded the costumers to gradually replace them with wool uniforms.[7]
