Re: What Treks do you like? The ultimate Trek popularity contest!

I find the novels can be a bit hit or miss. For every good one there are several insomnia-inducing yarns. I usually do a bit of research so that I'm only reading the better ones.

Galaxy Quest.
Cheeky wench!

Galaxy Quest does share a certain quality with TOS that I think separates TOS from the rest of Trek: It is endlessly rewatchable.

All the series and the films with the exception of the Abramsverse (I'm trying to come around to them, but I just don't dig them all that much--hopefully Into Darkness will be a pleasant surprise).

Haven't read many novels or reference books since I was a teen, but I always enjoyed them.

Some of the games have been absolute classics and I've enjoyed several that I've played.

I've never read any of the novels or played the games, but I've seen every episode and movie at least twice. Voted for all the live-action stuff but the Abrams movies. I just can't get into them. ST09 reminded me of a comic book movie.

Voted for TOS, TNG, Voyager, the movies from the Original series and the TNG ones along with the reboot ones .

Loved all of those. On a side note, what's up with the cable channels never showing any Voyager reruns anymore? I'd love to see Captain Janeway again.
For $8 a month you can get a Netflix account and all the Janeway you want, along with all other Trek.... and more TV shows and movies than you could ever watch.
But what do you have to pay for a fast internet connection to watch it on, much less a decent-sized screen...

Re: What Treks do you like? The ultimate Trek popularity contest!

The newer, the worse... They all degenerate in time with spinoff series after spinoff series; each one Losing a certain element of writing, characterization, and taste in general... You can actually see it here in the poll results... TOS was the best, E the worst... TAS had better writing than Any episode of E...

The less said of Abrams' things, the better...

The novels have also degenerated to pale imitations of what they once were... The attitude: bigger is better, so they're padded-out with junk just to thicken them, "price" them up...

The less said about the Fall of Treknical books and blueprints the better... The people behind the "official" faire in the last decade simply Don't Get It... THEY JUST DON'T GET IT! Apparently they believe that any slick, glossy, multi-colored pretty drawing is passable... So long as it Looks Good at a glance, there's no need to put one quark of research into it... What we have now are Haynes jokes... There's this Enterprise Workshop Manual which recycles the barebones garbage which any fan knows, and to add further insult to it, I think it was page 7 which transformed me into a raging mugato and made me tear it out with my bare teeth... A certain suitable-for-framing signed photo... Hint: it was Not of Gene Roddenberry... It was followed up by a Klingon Bird of Prey book which just goes to show that They Can Make Up Any Specs They Want To...and to hell with, you know, the Original works which Defined certain parameters like size!

Then we have this thing I just spotted called The Visual Dictionary... I think it should have been named Star Trek For Dummies...

Bottom line: What sells these days are Pretty Pictures... You can write and research all you want but Pretty Pictures are what Rules! And yes that includes CGI...

The dumbing-down of Mankind... At this rate when the Kzinti invade in 36 years there'll be just one brief war and we'll all be meat for the blonde pussies... The consequences of a damanged timeline...
