I continue to say: Give me the first 3 series, any episode, and I am a satisfied fan. They were all original shows that contrasted each other in storytelling, and gave me something to consider that I could apply to my life. Star Trek built a rich tapestry through these series that was able to sustain Voyager
for a combined 11 years without adding anything worth noting. Yes, I call the two newest series "pop culture Trek" and I find them superfluous. But those first 3 series. Wow. Thoughtful, original, entertaining storytelling.
