Re: Why do you like Star Trek
Top of the list would be the adventure, the sense of adventure.
Then would come watching people I "know" handling difficult situations, how they do it.
After that is that the show take place off of Earth (mostly), I've had a fascination with space since I was a child.
Every time the Federation Council is featured in the new series, it should be like a episode of House of Cards, with some Throne of Swords thrown in too
