Re: Continuity in star trek?
You can miss one or two episodes and still generally be ok in a more serialised show. If something you have missed is important to this episode it's usually mention in the "Previously on..." bit
Yeah, but the problem I had watching later seasons of DS9 and ENT was I was often missing several weeks, and when I would catch a show, it was a standalone, or I'd missed so much of the setup I didn't know what was happening.
