Yeah, TOS was definitely Ron Burgundy approved if you ask me.

Re: Favorite Star Trek Series/Show.

1. TNG
2. TOS
3. DS9
4. VOY






(A Distant) 5. ENT



And DS9 winning this poll in a landslide? Er, for being a prominent Star Trek message board, this place is not very representative of Trek fans' views is it?

TNG but it and DS9 share the love equally.

What is representative of Trek fans' views, according to you? And how do you know what Trek fans' views are?

+ 1 for DS9, love all of the shows, yes Voyager too, but I'll always leave behind something special on that station. It really was all about the relationships, the characters, and the serialization that did it for me.

It depends on how you view Trek fans. Casual Trek fans probably skew towards TNG or TOS because those were the most watched, so the likelihood is that casuals like those shows and never bothered to watch any of the others. However, the hardcore Trek nerds, the sort that join message-boards like this, I could easily accept that we'd skew towards a show like DS9, one that delved into the Trek mythology to a greater degree. I'm not saying that's the case, this poll is clearly not representative of this forum, there's far too few votes for Voyager for that to be the case. I know that Voyager is not the most popular show around these parts and is often used as a punchline, but it has enough fans here to deserve more than 1 measly vote.

Re: Favorite Star Trek Series/Show.

My ranking hasn't changed but there are some things to note. I'll get to that in a minute.

1. TOS -- Is my favorite because it's the one that interested me the most.

2. DS9 -- Followed this one through to the end. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. Like all stories that have a beginning, middle, and end, when it was over, it was over. My interested in TOS was more open-ended.

3. TNG -- I watched this show every day in the early-to-mid-'90s but I don't feel much attachment to the series. With TNG, it depends on the episode more than TOS and DS9.

4. VOY -- The concept of this series interested me more than any of the others. In 1995, I wanted this one to be my favorite but its erratic episode quality was frustrating. After 1999 and Ron Moore's falling out with Brannon Braga, I gave up. I didn't see the rest of the series until 2008.

5. ENT -- Never really watched this one. Don't feel much of a desire to. And, at the time, Ron Moore's falling out was still fresh in my mind. I saw five of the first six episodes and it didn't grab me. I saw a handful fourth season episodes and they were okay, but they didn't hook me into the series either. "Demons" and "Terra Prime" were very good though. More of this and I would've been interested... but, as we know, it wasn't meant to be.

Now for the notation. I'm burned out on TOS, I'm burned out on DS9, and I've still had my fill of TNG. I've also watched various episodes of these series for Old Time's Sake over the years. Not only am I burned out, I'm even tired of watching my favorites. It's enough.

VOY is the series I'm most likely to watch these days because, with the exception of "Endgame", I didn't watch the series at all from 1999 to 2007, when I caught a few episodes on Spike, then I took a plunge and watched the whole series in 2008. Most of the episodes I'd either only seen once, over a decade earlier, or not at all. So it was kind of like watching a new series. Sometimes, I forgot what happened because of how much time had passed, so I didn't always know what was going to happen next. Since I'm not burned out on VOY, and had a long break away from it, it's the series I'm most likely to watch these days instead of TOS, TNG, or DS9.

I can look past special effects and i prefered the crew interaction of the tos crew. No other crew bonded as well untill ds9 came along. DS9 was simply the most bold and stands out as good television and not just good scifi

Well as Godben already pointed out, TNG and TOS are generally considered the most popular of Trek series. This isn't opinion or "my view." Next Gen had far better ratings than Ds9. It also was the only series other than original Trek to make it to the big screen. I'm not arguing ratings or popularity equal quality, I'm just saying you can't really argue that Next Gen didn't have the bigger fanbase.

If all of Enterprise had been like season 4, it would rise to at least #3. Season 1-2 were very bad however and season 3 was utterly horrid.
