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.
Agree.

Re: What is your favorite series and why?

I have trouble with these kinds of questions, as it always comes down to two. I do strongly feel DS9 was the best Star Trek series. The writing and character development were truly exceptional.

But at the same time, I love TOS. I may not find it better than DS9, but there is a sense of comfort and relaxation I get watching those episodes I don't get from any other series. Perhaps it is because I grew up with those characters and can't remember a time not knowing who they were. The series has tons of sentimental attachment due to that, plus it also had some really amazing episodes.

Since this is for my favorite series, I'm going to give the edge slightly to TOS. Watching Captain Kirk and his crew trek across space never gets old for me.

TNG. Reason? Everything about it was just so wonderful. I find DS9 unwatchable. Brook's overacting really is grating. That episode where he's on a holodeck (I think) and experiences racism annoys me. He should have toned it down.

Re: What is your favorite series and why?

I'm another one who grew up with TOS all during the 1970's and early 1980's, so TOS will always be my favorite. I've seen the episodes so many times by now they are like old friends who I can always count on to be there for me.

I'd list DS9 a very close second, though. I didn't really warm to it at first but it definitely grew on me. I do believe that Ben Sisko is still my favorite of all the captains, though. If I had to pick one to serve with he'd be my choice.

I love TNG, too, but it just seemed a little too "perfect" to me. I do have a list of favorite TNG episodes that I still rewatch on occasion but I can't ever imagine it being as important to me as TOS is.

DS9.

Sure the other four series explored strange new worlds, but DS9 really fleshed them out. Definitely DS9 had the best character development and overall plot. To say nothing of the phenomenal use of their supporting characters.

Certainly each of the other series had their strengths, and some of them individually may have outweighed DS9, but in my opinion DS9 definitely had the best overall package.
Everything you said is true here. Couldn't agree more. And you know what (about your signature) I'm not happy with or about JJ Abrams. I feel like he has ruined Star Trek for me, it doesn't even feel like Star Trek anymore...

Re: What is your favorite series and why?

For me it's a toss between The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine as TNG was what i grew up watching as a kid and everytime I see a picture of the Enterprise-D I fall in love with it even more. What a ship! As for Deep Space Nine there was great story and deep characters and i find Dukat to be one of the best villians ever. As much as i love the idea of the perfect future etc it was good to see the Federation in peril too against the Dominion as it showed you how in hard times we still will pull together and help eachother to keep ourselves free.

Re: What is your favorite series and why?

While TNG is far superior in acting and storytelling, TOS is my favorite. You can't beat the real thing.

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.
oh sorry i always thought the animated series was not canon.
Why would it's non-canon status preclude its being on a list of possible favorite series?
Because if i put 1 that is not canon,i am gonna have to put many others. should i put every fan made trek production??

Well, let's see...

The production was licensed by Paramount, overseen by Roddenberry, had scripts by Fontana and Gerrold among others and had the entire cast back in their original roles minus Walter Koenig (who wrote The Infinite Vulcan). Plus elements of the show were used in DS9, ENT and Star Trek 2009.

If you can show me a fan film that has all those elements, then I'd say add them to the list.

And having TAS there would only serve to siphon off votes from TOS. Which I'm sure would make some Modern Trek fans feel better about their respective series.
