Re: What is your favorite series and why?

One great thing if a new Trek series is set in the TOS era. No holodeck.

Re: What is your favorite series and why?

TOS. I grew up watching it in syndication in the 70s, and it is the only "true" Trek to me (although I like some episodes of TNG and ENT).

Right, no way two people could ever have similar ideas at the same time.

I think Ron Moore and JMS are just big nerds who always wanted their scifi to be more serialized.

Even in episodes that didn't take place on the holodeck, the Voyager crew seemed to spend every waking moment on the holodeck. I'd say TNG and Voyager are equally guilty in that regard.
Voyager had few Holodeck episodes yes of course.
TNG had many many holodeck episodes and are far more boring :P

Actually VOY did more holodeck episodes, as for quality that is a matter of opinion.

DS9 and I'm sure the reasons have already been enumerated in great detail without me even needing to read this thread.

It's interesting how TNG used to be second place in polls like this but since Abrams started making movies, TOS has taken over that slot with a vengeance.

TOS and NuTrek aren't the same thing and really shouldn't be categorized together.

No, not the same thing - but as a long time disciple of TOS I personally feel a very familiar TOS-like vibe in NuTrek - albeit with a glossy, modern sheen.

Re: What is your favorite series and why?

I wish you had put Star Trek: The Animated Series in your poll. It was my first introduction to Star Trek in the early 1970s. Afterward, TOS turned up in syndication and I fell in love with Trek!

I voted for TOS, but TAS also holds a special place in my heart.

Well, Roddenberry has been dead for twenty years and I'm pretty sure that edict died with him since elements of TAS made it into DS9, ENT and the last movie.

Deep Space Nine.

It allowed the Star Trek universe to grow without depending solely on the human characters. I also appreciate it for giving us a more honest "equal opportunity" by having the female characters not only carry a high rank, but also wear the same type of uniform as their male counter parts.

Why would it's non-canon status preclude its being on a list of possible favorite series?
