Re: If TNG/DS9/VOY were never made, would you have watched TOS?

Nope, not at all. I'm too young to have seen TOS first run, but I watched it all the time growing up in the 70s and early 80s and loved it. I eagerly watched TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT and to varying degrees enjoyed them all, but TOS is still "Star Trek" to me. So I don't really understand this idea that one would have to be introduced to TOS via the sequel series to appreciate it. Honestly, I still rewatch TOS but have little to no desire to revisit the newer shows (and I liked them, I just don't feel the need to revisit them.) The only modern Trek that I have enjoyed as much as TOS is the 2009 movie.
