Whether it be causal or hardcore, anyone else here a Trekkie?
I have a real soft spot for TOS. I was actually just re-watching The Man Trap with lunch the other day. My feeling about TOS is that the sets are so simple that it feels more like a televised play these days, which actually means it's aged better than other SF shows.
So: favourites -
Oh boy, here I go...XD
I absolutely love seasons 3-7 of TNG, the golden era, if you will, of Star Trek. I just love drinking Earl Grey whilst rewatching the episodes. Voyager and DS9 are fantastic as well, I think they're both great series.
For some reason I can't get into TOS, it's too...colorful. It's too campie for me, I guess I'm not used to it (I did enjoy "The Doomsday Machine")
If I had to make a top 3 list of my favorite captains it would be:
Yeah, TOS is very hit-and-miss, and there's some really ridiculous episodes. But there's also some great stuff. "Balance of Terror" is probably the one most people like the best.
