Seems I'm a little late to the party here. LOL! I love Star Trek! Well, MOST of it. I kinda lost interest with it after Deep Space 9 and Voyager. Still like to re-watch the originals and TNG. Not to mention the movies (yes, even the newer ones).

I used to refer to DS9 as "days of our lives in space". What a snooze fest. But everything before that was great. Even though I've seen every classic trek episode a hundred times I still can't not watch it if it happens to be on. I'm also the only person I know who liked the first movie. Yeah, it was a two hour long episode, but I liked the feel of it. Heh, and I find myself playing the Klingon theme from that movie on the bass guitar whenever I happen to pick one up :-D

I, too, have been surprised by the new movies. I expected to hate them, but they were ok!

I liked the first movie too, tho you're right, it was a two hour episode. As far as DS 9 goes, I also found it a bit dull. But there's one episode I love called Trials and Tribble-ations and it has the Defiant going back in time to the tos episode The Trouble with Tribbles. I thought it was well done and the best of the DS 9 shows.

I have tos on DVD and on the disc with Trouble with Tribbles, they also have the DS 9 episode.

I now have both tos and tng on DVD. Still haven't watched my way thru tos completely yet, but have seen every episode of tng many times over. Never get tired of them. Data and Worf were my favorites. Spock was my fave on tos.

I absolutely love Zachary Quinto's "young Spock" in the last two movies. Wow! He's got Spock nailed! I read that Leonard Nimoy had coached him on the role.

I love Star Trek! I fell in love when I saw TNG, and I love Picard passionately. Voyager is almost up there with TNG, and DS9 is OK. Didn't like Enterprise that much, and I'm currently picking up TOS again.

My favorite episodes are always about time travel or parallell universes or something really weird; I'm not too fond of the more political episodes. Plus, can someone please invent synthehol?

Data and Worf were my favorite ST tng characters. We used to have a cat named after Data's cat Spot.

When I visited Seattle in October, my daughter and I went to the EMP museum to see the Star Trek exhibit. It was great, and I got two t shirts and a communicator, like on tos.

It was cool as hell to see some of the props used, like the Borg cube.

Least- I am assimilating your data, although this might be against the lore. All data wants to do is retire to a nice place with a Picard fence. After looking about he had a choice 7 out of 9. As to Worf and the cat? Ahuuura(?)....bless you. That hit the spot.

This is a hilarious "honest trailer" about tng. It's 8 minutes long but worth the watch.

Sober Trekkie here as well.

Grew up with copious reruns of TOS and still have some memorabilia that although a bit tattered (medical manual and original Enterprise blueprints) would fetch some $$$. I'm not letting them go however

TNG grew on me quite a bit; DS9 not at all. Voyager was so-so and Enterprise was actually refreshing. Don't think any movie, whether TNG or JJ-verse are gonna come close to Wrath of Khan to be honest..
