Something about licensing rights and money. No real reason.

Re: TOS fans - What is your second favorite show?

It was a toss-up between TAS and TNG. But if I had a broader choice I'd say my second favorite show is Babylon 5.

Agreed.

I went with TNG by a hair, although I have a lot of love for DS9 as well. Both are as good of a followup to TOS as you could hope for.

Re: TOS fans - What is your second favorite show?

TNG may have achieved a pop status, and I love it but I had to throw my vote in for DS9. The writing is just consistently better than TNG, and the use of modern TV storytelling with arcs and character growth and change is a nice bonus as well.

Deep Space Nine. It's the only one of the TNG era shows I like without reservation. TNG was too preachy. Voyager was just stupid.

Enterprise might have been my number two if I only had to consider the first two seasons. Unfortunately there are also seasons three and four, which killed the series for me.

Re: TOS fans - What is your second favorite show?

Haven't seen TAS in forever, but it's the only other one I consider to be "Star Trek". Those other shows are decent spin-offs, but not something I like spending any time on. Especially TNG.

Honestly, the only show that has ever engendered anything like the same love I've had for TOS, is early West Wing.

While I don't really like any of the other ones more or less than each other I do find myself watching Voyager the most of the spinoffs.

I think the best thing about Voyager was that we finally once again saw a Vulcan as a main character or even recurring character.

I always thought TNG and DS9 should have had a Vulcan at least as a recurring character. Either as a teacher or officer.

Stargate SG-1 and Arlantis. They often felt more like a modern Star Trek than the Trek spin-offs. They had the sense of fun and adventure which vanished in the overly-serious TNG and we saw only a few snippets of in Voyager.

Trek-wise, Voyager and Enterprise are my next favourites, Trek-wise. ENT's third season was fantastic.

Re: TOS fans - What is your second favorite show?

I've been a fan of the original series since I was a kid in the early 1970's, watching reruns on WKGB Channel 56 in Boston on a tiny, grainy black and white screen. I built the AMT Enterprise and Klingon D7 models, and owned a Mego Spock action figure. TOS will always be Star Trek for me.

Having said that, I think Next Generation was a worthy successor, and consider that my second-favorite series in the franchise. None of the later series really do anything for me, though I did have high hopes for Enterprise when it went on the air in 2001, and was disappointed in how it turned out, like many of you were.

Deep Space Nine. Of all the latter-day Trek shows, this one comes the closest, IMO, to recreating the spirit and essence of TOS.

I voted for TNG, but really it would have to be UFO.

Not Trek but still very good!

Because too many prefer packing over content?

Deep Space Nine. I consider it the best Star Trek series, the writing, acting and storytelling were stellar. TOS is my favorite though due to my attachment to the characters.
