The only True Treks! Fight!!

"It's not real Star Trek!"

"True fans don't like [insert series/movie here]"

"It's not canon!"

"It doesn't count!"

"[insert name here] ruined Star Trek!"

"RIP Star Trek [insert years here]"


...all things that I've read in my time here.

Vote for all the ones you consider the True incarnations of Star Trek.

Re: The only True Treks! Fight!!

Ugh. Instead of taking me to the poll creation thingie it's just dumping me back on the General Trek Disussion page.

So... plan B. Tell me which Treks "count" and which don't in your mind. My options were going to be:

The Original Series
The Animated Series
The TOS movies
The Next Generation
The TNG movies
Deep Space Nine
Voyager
Enterprise
nuTrek movies

It all counts (I also accept some deleted scenes in my own personal canon). When it comes to Nu-Trek its an alternate universe, so what happens there doesn't impact on the Prime Universe, so people can either take it or leave it.

No fighting needed. It's all Trek and it's all real. There are simply series episodes and movies that I like better than others.

All of the above, plus Galaxy Quest AND Master and Commander.

And that Star Trek episode of Futurama.

Re: The only True Treks! Fight!!

Alas, these "fights" are nothing new. Just the other day I was reading a firsthand account of fandom's reaction to the initial reports about TNG.

Sure enough, some paranoid Trekkies thought that the presence of a "robot" (Data) meant that Paramount was (gasp!) trying to turn STAR TREK into STAR WARS!

The more things change . . . .

Damn that Gene Roddenberry!

I don't know who he thinks he is, but he better turn Star Trek back over to the guy who was running it before!

Do you ever get the feeling we're all following some kind of script?
