Re: Cover and blurb for TOS: The Weight of Worlds
SG-1 sometimes reminded me of TNG as well when it did high-concept procedural scifi, and in the later seasons occassionally of DS9 when it managed to get into meatier and more resonating character drama thanks to the accumulated history of the characters. I agree there's a lot to like in that series for fans of the Trek franchise, even sans some of the more philosophical core aspirations of Trek. I think despite the more overtly militaristic elements of the setting it also basically has much of the basic optimism and brightness that I like about Trek.
Yeah, I really think it was the most Trek like of the non-Trek Sci-Fi series to have aired in the last couple decades.
