There are probably some who insist the only true Trek is the Jeffrey Hunter years.

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.
That sounds about right.

Re: The only True Treks! Fight!!

I feel that TOS, TAS, and the TOS movies, and certain books and RPGs are real Trek. TNG, TNG movies, and certain books are inferior Trek with better graphics. DS9 started moving back towards real, good Trek. Voyager had a lot of good ideas and pissed away too much potential. Galaxy Quest is an alternate universe of TOS - and the best Trek movie ever!!! I don't count ANY video games.

Enterprise was a reboot that had potential, but had too many issues for me to embrace, and the nuTrek movie was yet another reboot. Character and dialogue were spot-on, but there was no coherent plot, too much nonsense, and too much inanity for the sake of humor.

The above describes what I go by when I write fanfic or run an RPG.

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

Set wholly in the prime universe? We can hope.

"You bet! 'The Cage" is the purest expression of Gene's vision--before the evil suits forced him him to dumb Trek down by adding more action and making less cerebral. That Kirk guy isn't the real captain of the Enterprise. And everyone knows Mr. Spock guy is just a rip-off of Number One!"

(Wow, that rant practically wrote itself.)

Re: The only True Treks! Fight!!

I assume we mean the series and the films only.

TOS(And The Cage)
Yesteryear
TOS Films (I simply handwave The Final Frontier being Kirk's dream)
TNG
TNG Films
DS9
VOY (Minus Threshold)
ENT (Trip didn't die, damn it. It was a Section 31 ploy.)
First bit of the nu!Star Trek.

I know there are some people who insist that anything after Generations is a lie, because Picard's still in The Nexus or something. I also consider Abramsverse an alternate timeline, so I didn't include the Abramsverse bits of Star Trek (2009) in.

Everything counts except Threshold and TATV.

I think the following count as Star Trek:

The Original Series
The Animated Series
The TOS movies
The Next Generation
The TNG movies
Deep Space Nine
Voyager
Enterprise
nuTrek movies (alternate timeline)
T.J. Hooker (alternate timeline)
No, no, T.J. Hooker is one of J.T. Kirk's ancestors.

Re: The only True Treks! Fight!!

All Trek before Abrams reboot mostly feels like Star Trek to me. Some of it is great, some of it is bad, but I cannot say that any of the series as a whole* or any of the movies were not Star Trek.

But the Abramsverse just doesn't feel like Star Trek to me. It is like some completely different movie with Trek names and elements pasted on. It is hard to fully explain.

(* Enterprise however really went to directions I didn't like, and the blatant disrecard of the continuity didn't help.)

Re: The only True Treks! Fight!!

It's all Star Trek, every bit of it.

Some of it interests me a lot more than other parts, but that's a different story.
