Haven't done one of these in quite a while... so be kind.
28 seasons of Star Trek.
3 Star Trek. 4 Enterprise. 7 each for Next Gen, Deep Space Nine & Voyager.
The idea here, is to cross compare what each fan considers to be the better years of Star Trek overall, by placing them in chart.
For me, the rule would be... if you can't even think of 5 great stories that year, then that's a below average season.... so a lower position in the chart. The more it hurts to shortlist down to just 5 in a single year, then the higher up it goes...
Here's my placement, in reverse order. I'll put some highlight episodes in brackets, but bear in mind just five amazing stories can't sustain a whole season... It has to be really hard to make cuts. For instance, I've could've gone to 10 or more from Season 1 of Star Trek (TOS) alone. Which is explains why it sits at the top. Only my opinion mind, you will all have different opinions.
I'll leave it up to the individual where and if they place The Animated Series. I've nothing against it. I just found it easier to focus on live-action.
If you don't want to give a chart number for seasons you've never seen much of, then just go with what you know. Maybe a Top 10 or 15.
