Re: is TOS the only 'true' Star Trek?

You're the poster who started the thread, right? How are you defining "true"?
Yeh, that's me. At the time I was thinking how, in the real world, the producers always have to get the ratings to go up, so they tweak the production in order to (like the introduction of Troi's decotte costume in TNG or 7/9 in Voy).

So they called DeForestKelley and James Doohan for TNG, Shatner for the movie, The Enterprise and the Tribbles for DS9, Takey for VOY, the Defiant for ENT. It's always TOS they run to for help with pleasing the fans (ratings). Now since the 2009 roboot, Star Trek is 23rd century again.

By 'true' I meant classic, or timeless, highly creative (of course since it had no previous generation to succed. But I think I'm circling), things the other shows dont look to be so much. Maybe I should have used the word 'classic'. I did put the word 'true' between quotes.

But since the various posters talked about canon issues I feel the thread went that way. It's alright, too. Fun read.
