Well, to the haters, I enjoyed each one of the series in it's own special way.

DS9 was the weakest with Garak and Bashir being the main reason that made it worth worthing.
 
2012-10-20 09:49:04 AM
Don't be stupid. You know perfectly well that it's dangerous for the Doctor to cross his own timeline. Running into himself ten times simultaneously would probably kill us all.

I agree. They all have something to offer. Also, Enterprise was a lot better than people give it credit for. The theme song sucked, and somehow GOT WORSE. That's about it. Cool to hate and all that.

Same here. It gets a lot of crap, but I'd have preferred another season or two.

The problem with "Enterprise" is that it's actually fairly decently bookended- the first season starts with a lot of promise, the final season ended with some strong episodes. The middle had shiat like this.

I don't know what "cool to hate" even means but the problem with Enterprise was that none of the characters were likable. At all. Except for the dog. That's why the mirror universe episodes were so awesome I guess.

And I disagree about DS9, I thought it was the best. Everyone loves TNG but if you watch it again, some of the dialog was downright cringe-worthy.

Agree to disagree.

Cool to hate, as an aside, basically refers to the notion that it is popular to criticize certain things (from Lady Gaga to Beiber to Enterprise to Voyager to Nickleback).

Further, it is the "enlightened" position to enjoy DS9 for it's "greater characterization, less Rick Berman, more gritty and dark ambiance, and greater political intrigue. Oh, and no more monster of the week episodes".

I actually prefer "encapsulated episodes" rather than intense serialization. I grew up with 3 channels on TV. The episodes aired out of order constantly for DS9. I also like the idea of just watching a story contained within a brief period of time.

NTTAWT.

This! The first season in particular of TNG was pretty damn bad, and did we really need the ghost sex episode?

Then again DS9 had a fairly bad 1st season too. Didn't get good until right at the end of season 2 and going into season 3. It seems to be an awesome captain in the 24th century you must be bald.

TNG had very uneven quality. It had the best episodes in all of Star Trek, and some of the worst. There was no middle ground in TNG; you either got Best of Both Worlds or you got Sub Rosa.

DS9 seasons 1-3 had some stinkers, but it was consistently good after that. And even when it was bad, it wasn't all bad. In an otherwise bad episode, they could have Bashir sit down to lunch with Garak and turn things around.

Voyager's writing quality was very inconsistent, like TNG but with fewer high points. Janeway and Chokotay changed personalities from week to week, like the writers couldn't decide who they were.

TNG, DS9 and Voyager were all pretty bad in their first couple seasons, which is why Enterprise got a bad rap, it started getting good towards the end there, despite the lame, uninteresting characters.

But TNG had bad dialog all the way through, with Picard being a pompous prick and everyone just being pretentious douchebags.

And yes, DS9 did have better characterization, was grittier and darker and had an overall story to tell. I don't think that is "enlightened", just common knowledge. Voyager could have used a big arcing story like DS9 had, it would have been a much better show.

I don't care for DS9. The issue that I have is largely one of branding, though. When I sit down to watch "Star Trek", I'm coming into it with certain expectations about what sort of vision of the future I'm about to watch. DS9 doesn't fit that mold, and I could never get past that. I can get past crappy sets and special effects, and even sub-par acting, so I loved "Babylon 5".

I would love to think that the author of TFA intentionally put up a pic of 4 captains (and intentionally excluded Patrick Steward) below a headline about 5 captains. That's just too farking perfect.

This. It got better. And those episodes with Peter Weller were fantastic.

I just started rewatching Voyager. There were too many time travel episodes. There were 2 in the first 4 alone.

They also have a fake Harry and it can be argued a fake Torres.

[www.wired.com image 660x1001]


I'm reading that, and I really don't know why. You'd expect something with a lot of fan service and characters duking it out with the Borg/Cybermen. Instead, you get a bunch of characters standing around and talking. So it's basically an episode of TNG.

You'd hope that something like this would have fan-service, but the only fan-servicy moment was when Tom Baker's Doctor met Kirk along with some Cybermen, and Kirk did his futurecombat drop kick on a Cyberman. That single panel is the only thing in the entire series that is worth mentioning.

Hey, I think the next issue comes out this week...

Voyager had too many issues to have a chance at being good. The biggest one was the complete lack of consequences for anything that happened. They could constantly lose shuttles, waste energy using the holodeck, get blown to shiat one week, and the following week everything was alright. On top of that, the characters were all over the place. Janeway was a staunch defender of the prime directive, except when she wasn't, Torres was practically bi-polar with her characters' mood swings, and Chakotay was just kind of...there.

The integration of the Maquis into the Voyager crew went way too quickly and easily. The only thing that could have helped Voyager would be if they managed to have made Year of Hell last an entire season. At least then it would have had one great season.

Some people don't care for all of the political chit chat and prefer a straight action / philosophy story wrapped up in 44-50 minutes. It's all a matter of taste.

I've watched Bloodsport and Commando a few dozen times each. I've watch the LOTR movies about twice. Sometimes it's better to just sit down and enjoy the ride without the "highlight" of Garaks extended dinner scene with the dashing Bashir.

Not saying I don't like DS9 (I do), but it's almost predictable regarding discussions about DS9 with trek fans.

That was actually the asset of Enterprise. That show really proved how much better Star Trek - even the ship shows - is with serial story arcs. shiat that happened two, three, even six episodes in the past would be utilized again in a new episode. Honestly, despite its problems with acting, Enterprise was a far superior show to either TNG or Voyager on a technical level.

I know I'll get guff for that, but I'll stand by that. It's effects were amazing and are going to stand up for a long, long time and it stands second only to DS9 in terms of exploring new dramatic territory for Star Trek.

I got halfway through that sentence thinking you were going to say Garak and Bashir ruined the show... I don't think that, but it's great that people take so many different things away from that show.

I haven't seen Enterprise. Voyager was easily weaker than DS9. They all had their high points that other sci fi shows still haven't lived up to for me.

Even though they seemed to miraculously fix the ship between episodes, the characters themselves had some growth, especially Seven. She's one of the best characters in all of Star Trek and not just because she was hot. Except, yeah, Chakotay was just sort of there. But all of the characters in DS9 were interesting (except maybe Jake), which made the farewell episode especially good. I really didn't care if any one on Enterprise lives or died (even the Vulcan with the fake tits).

For anybody that isn't aware, it's been announced that Enterprise is the next show to get a Blu-Ray release. That will be happening in the next year or so.

TNG on Blu-Ray looks amazing. I can't wait till sometime down the line when they finally get around to DS9.
