I left my heart in the 24th C.
Bah! Only in the series, eh? Gotta go with the 24th century, then. Though if it had included movies, 23rd century wins for me. The Bennet/Meyers aesthetic just nudges out all the others.

23rd century. 24th was ultimately a snoozer.

24th, for sure.

We didn't see enough of the 22nd century to make a fair opinion (only four seasons).

The 23rd C has a great design aesthetic; and has a less-PC, 'shoot first and ask questions later' approach to solving problems, but again, we only have three seasons, and 6 (soon to be seven) movies set in that time period.

With the 24th, we have 21 seasons and four movies. So it is definitely the most familiar era to us. It just felt more 'epic' to me.

While I like the 24th, I really liked the aesthetic of the 23rd. There was a tone of stuff going on, and there were more stories to tell in the Movie era. I really wish the next series (If there was one) would focus on the lost era more. I'm not saying a Sulu series, but so much can be done and I don't think continuity would be a problem.

23rd. Just like the technology and ship designs from that era.

23rd century. This is so not a even contest. A century where your technology does everything but pee for you - 24th - can be boring beyond measure at times. 23rd.
