Star Trek
Can't believe this topic hasn't been brought up before now...

I loved TNG, the original series is classic for sheer Rong-ness, and I really enjoyed Voyager... at first. I felt the first couple seasons were quite strong, then it petered out. DS9 was occasionally entertaining but never really figured itself out (I thought), with the exception of Odo, an all-around great character.

Right now I'm enjoying the heck out of Enterprise, not least of all for it's good ol' Southern boy engineer! YeeHAW!

That movie sterotyped Trekies.

People who have never watched Star Trek have this idea in there head about people who are fans of it like they think we are geeky or weird or something.

I like all the series and movies although while i like Voyager Captain Janeway grated on my nerves a bit she always could never be wrong she was always on her high horse. hehe
I like Deep space nine but unhappy the way they ended it i think the producers where making sure that there could be no DS9 movies or TV specials. Enterprise is good, I got a thing for Hoshi.

I am looking forward to Star Trek Nemesis

I've seen one Star Trek movie. It was number 9 when they fought against the Borg. I thought it was a pretty kewl idea, but I've got an Xmen comic from the late 70s that outdates the Picard Star Trek episodes, and they have these aliens that have a hive mentality. They can assimilate anyone by infection, and quickly adapt to any form of attack. Does this sound familiar to you? Yes, Star Trek TOTALLY ripped off the Xmen alines to make the Borg. How shameless.

Actually that was the eight Star Trek film that they fought the borg.

Hey what number issue was that x-men comic?
I remember the borg were originally supposed to be like robotic bugs but it worked out too expensive at the time to do that.

I feel I should jump in here with something, but I really don't have much to say. :) Remember back in March of 1998 when someone leaked out a detailed synopsis of Star Trek Insurrection (before the cameras even started rolling)? That was me.

Quick Trekkie opinions:
DS9's my favorite Trek series, but the final season killed it as they tried too hard to weave the Bajor/Emissary/Prophets deal with the Dominion War.

Voyager had a lot of potential, but dropped the ball from the very start. Finally caught its stride with Seven of Nine and found its niche as the wacky, retarded incarnation of Trek, but it could've been so much more.

The Original Series and The Next Generation--nothing needs to be said; these guys set the bar.

Enterprise - dull and unexciting. At the very least, Archer, who comes across as the George Dubya of Trek captains, should be jettisoned in favor of a character with more personality. Hoshi's the only reason for me to watch (could I expect any less from the other Ringworms?). We get to see her topless (well, covering herself with her arms) in the season premiere, I gather...

Ha! I never would've made that connection, but I can see it now that you mention it.

The actress who plays Hoshi is Korean-American, is she not? (Linda Park). Wish they could've come up with a more realistic name for her character though. Not as if there's a shortage of authentic Japanese names to be found in California...

I'm not a trekkie but I watch enough TV to be able to gibber about it abit
Enterprise is okay, but the characters are a little 2d.

Oh look, there's the scaredy one, the tough vulcan chick (with an arse that won't quit and a huge pair of nockers that pleases the fanboys), the cool southern feller, the English guy, and the tough no nonsense captain guy.

Everything after TNG sucked pretty badly. Voyager mainly because that BASTARD NEELIX MUST DIE. USELESS POINTLESS TURD!!!!

And no other captain is like Jean Luc Picard.

Can you imagine him during sex?

Mmmm, oh yeah...

Re: Picard sweet talk
Exactly. Jean Luc is easily the most sex crazy of all the captains. You can easily imagine him walking down to engineering with no pants on and demanding Jordi "accompany him up to the holodeck for a game of virtual backgamon and a quicky".

"Take us out Comander Riker"
"Not yet, hunnikins"
