I don't think Voyager gets the right credit

I just got finished watching all 7 seasons of Voyager. Now I am a BIG original fan and that can never be replaced. But when I watched Voyager to me it was the apex of what the Next Generation and Deep Space Nine was building up to. Janeway is not my favorite Captain, but I have no reason to talk bad about her.

The story lines and crew developed into so much a stronger to the "star trek" theme. I don't think they get the credit they deserve.

What do you think?

Loaded question. You're operating on the assumption everyone thinks TOS is the best. This is not true. But in the spirit of the thread...

DS9
TNG
VOY
TOS
ENT

And quite honestly, I'm thinking of putting Enterprise over TOS these days... the only thing holding it in 4th is the original six movies simply rock.

"Best" isn't always the same as "Favorite" either..

I'm voting for love.

Re: I don't think Voyager gets the right credit

I'm a huge niner, I've watched it all the way through 5 times now. I just don't post on that forum as much because it's uhh.. not as fun? Yeah, that will do.

Re: I don't think Voyager gets the right credit

Voyager is a very underrated series (IMO). It's not good enough to surpass DS9, but is still very much the second-best series in the franchise (again, IMO).

Re: I don't think Voyager gets the right credit

Now everyone don't get me wrong, the original was not the best made, the best acted, the best story lines. But Gene Roddenberry only had a very limited budget and he did the best he had to work with. The network killed it after 3 years from low ratings, but look what those three seasons started. For that reason I took them off the list. Out of respect.

Re: I don't think Voyager gets the right credit

I've never been much of a TOS fan despite having seen 5 of the 6 original movies and the two JJ Abrams-verse movies and being, in general, familiar with the characters.

I do intend to do a TOS watch-through at some point, though (probably once I've finished the other four series).

Re: I don't think Voyager gets the right credit

I always called TOS the foundation upon which bigger and better things were built. There are some members of this board who might string me up for uttering such blasphemy.

Though it's safe to say... on the Voyager board... Voyager's gonna win. You might get a more meaningful result if you posted this on General Trek.

Welcome to the board, by the way!

Re: I don't think Voyager gets the right credit

I had a few years there where I was watching DS9, VOY and ENT in marathon rewatches and whichever one I was watching at the time was my favorite.

I don't like comparing TOS to the others because it really is both of another era and the foundation upon which everything else is built. Also I'm not very objective about TOS, when I watch it I have the same intense feelings I did when I first saw it when young.. even the music heard so many times pulls at me.

Which movie haven't you seen?

OH and as to polls.. well they only tell us (obviously) what this bbs likes. Having met a ton of Trek fans IRL who never talk about Trek on forums etc.. I'm always surprised at how different the general opinion is than the forum opinions

I also only recently saw The Undiscovered Country (watching it as an appendix to my Voyager [re]watch-through).

As bad as everyone says it is, it's worth watching. It offers a great view to how Shatner views his character.

Re: I don't think Voyager gets the right credit

Did you LOVE the Undiscovered Country??

I hope you loved it.

Also, there is fan dancing in V and the whole thing is camp, camp, camp. Hilarious stuff.

I'll get around to watching it at some point (probably during my TOS watch-through).

@teacake: Yes, I did enjoy TUC, although The Voyage Home is still my favorite movie of the 5 'prime-Verse' TOS films that I've seen.
