There are so many other good shows on TV now: Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Mad Men, Supernatural, Being Human, etc. that I don't miss Trek, at least not anymore.
Yeah, but all great TV shows on right now have 13 episode runs and gaps of more than a year. Like what Breaking Bad is pulling, having two short seasons with a gap of a year and pretending it's a single season, same thing Sopranos pulled in its last season.
They are great TV, but it's not the same as having a show on a full network schedule to be excited about.
And few other TV universes have the same richness of mythology Star Trek had. Not as easy to get lost in.
