Such a lovely thread. I would like to thank everyone for some wonderful posts. So expressive and positive.
I have wonderful memories of the series, and then of course on video and dvd.
I tend to enjoy the series and movies as a whole. There is so much that I would like to express, sadly I am incapable. So I will use broad terms: Tolerance. Humanism. Care. Responsibility. Duty. Openness. Love. Understanding. Patience. Expression.....
Of course everything above applies to Trek philosophy. At least from TOS onwards. It's all Trek.
