Re: Worst Season?

I voted for "Enterprise" season 2. "A Night in Sickbay" and "Marauders" drove me to stop watching for more than a year. No other Star Trek season could achieve that.
Yes, I eventually caught up on most of the episodes I missed.

TNG season one is not the worst season at all, it has some real gems in there. It does have a terrible, terrible pilot episode though I won't deny that.

I am going to say Voyager S7.
Opinions vary. TNG has Code of Honor, and that, outside of ENT's Cogenitor, is the worst Trek episode I've ever seen. Even the TNG cast didn't like that episode. I only got half-way thru season one, though. I do hope to find those gems in the second half.

I don't usually see "Cogenitor" described as a bad episode.

^At the very least, it's very flawed. I saw what it was trying to do; it just didn't do that. If you want my reasons, or my description, as to why it's so flawed, then you can read them here, here, or particularly here which might be best.

The only Trek show I stopped watching was Voyager.

Enterprise season 1 and I say that because I never made it passed this season. The remaining 3 could be worse.

Re: Worst Season?

Enterprise season 2 was so terrible, it's like they just weren't trying that year. Season 1 established some story threads that could have made excellent stories, there was potential in the dreaded Temporal Cold War which even had the side element of those aliens whe picked on the innocent Suliban and put them in internment camps then tried to spy on Captain Archer. Meanwhile the Vulcan-Andorian conflict was interesting and the source of some of the best story material in the whole series. and even the space boomers was a concept which was intriguing. These all only get lipservice in season 2 because apparentally we need remakes of previous Trek episodes and movies or even other science fiction movies, need to bring in the Borg, need to bring in an ancestor of Duras and then do nothing with the relation. And so after a year of practically ignoring established story threads which could have enriched the show, it is finally decided the show needs a new direction, becaus the old one just isn't working out.

Yeah, that's totally the worse season and the one that was most poorly handled of all Trek.

Re: Worst Season?

Original Trek--Seasons 2 and 3
TNG--All seasons except 2. Season 2 is what I call "The Dr. Pulaski season". I loved it.
DS9--Season 7. Two words why: Ezri Dax.
Voyager and Enterprise--I didn't watch enough episodes to pick a season of either so NO comment.

Re: Worst Season?

I think ENT season 2. Some of the later seasons of VOY were disappointing, but ENT season 2 was really a low point.

Re: Worst Season?

TNG stands as one of my favorite Star Trek series, but I still cannot, no matter how many S1 appreciation threads I've read, change my mind about it. It sucked on so many levels, with Stewart so painfully stiff and Sirtis so collegiate.

No offense, but I'd switch "honest" with "ignorant". You simply don't know what you're missing.

Re: Worst Season?

I'd say either TNG Season 1 or ENT Season 1-2. Those were painful to watch.

Calling someone ignorant because they have the audacity to have a different opinion from yours is just childish at best. No offense.
