Re: Your Favorite ST Love Story!
I honestly don't think romance was one of Trek's greatest strengths. There isn't a single relationship in the history of the franchise that I ever found to be compelling. I think part of it is that so many of the relationships were aliens-of-the-week, or were written so inconsistently that there was no point in getting emotionally wrapped up (Picard/Crusher or Riker/Troi, who kept teasing the audience without any real advancement over the course of the series).
