Star Trek: Enterprise the series (imho).
Actually, he should. For a canon-accurate historical progression perspective, I'd begin with Enterprise if he wants a feel for how the UFP began,
go to TOS (< shudders > If he must) Then TNG, DS9 & Voyager.
Quick edit: And yes, I know ENT is considered by many to be shoe-horning explanations in to fill holes in canon, but they do
As far as series to avoid, well, I hate TOS. Cannot stand it. Others love it, but I just can't love it at all. Horrendously bad writing, costuming,
Shatner acting. It's what the Razzies were concocted too late for.
For the sake of understanding later series references and homages, yeah, you can't really skip it lest you're ok with things going over your head to a
degree. Not the end of the world, but it will help some series' references make sense.
Movies, I can honestly say I've seen them all & my favorite is ST4 (The Voyage Home, aka Whaaales Innnn Spaaace) The one I really don't care to see
again unless I'm bored enough is actually a tie between Insurrection & Nemesis. Both have their moments, and both have their weak points. Neither are
, but not that outstanding, either.
If I have to be utterly honest, TNG's first 2 seasons were awful. I flinch through most of the episodes when I rewatch. It's my favorite series out of
all of them, but man, that series had a rough
start with the writing...
