I used to LOVE the original, but I watch it now and I'm like: Oh no Space Lincoln! Arrrgh, Cornocopia attack!
And the "acting"...WOW. But I have to give mad props to Roddenberry for the Mythos. It's one of the few futuristic visions where we're not just in
a dream, slaves to robots, post-apocolyptic cave men or under the watchful eye of Big Brother...
In fact, SOCIALISM WINS after WWIII and sets up Federation HQ in the land of tree huggers, SAN FRANCISCO!!! It's a utopian dream for lefties: A
morally bound military led by diplomats, for the protection of Scientists and Artist (Is there even a 5th occupation???)
Okay, wise ass Doctor.
Next Gen was the best though IMO...but takes the belittlement of "primitives" that still worship a God too far sometimes. Best enemy award = BORG.
But Waxona Troi and Wesley Crusher should DIE, DIE, DIE!!! (Ever notice the main Ferengi, was Buffy's principle at Sunnydale High? Frasier was a time
trapped Captian from 500 years earlier? The interim Doctor died on LA Law from an elevator crash? --- I haven't found anyone from Benson!!!)
Deep Space 9, had an awesome story line premise they quickly abondoned for the 'soap opera' route. (Ever notice that shapeshifter was on Benson?)
Voyager had it's ups and downs. By ups, I mean Seven. (Ever notice that hairball cook was on Benson?) And Tuvok was a bad guy on Next Gen.
And Enterprise could be SOOO good, but they want to rewrite history too much. Come on, AT LEAST be as Alien racist and bigoted as Kirk! And bring on
the damn Klingon wars. Crimony. Is that Vulcan chick even alive? zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Q = God.
