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

Excellent.

I have only seen TMP twice which is pretty shocking considering the amount of times I've seen all the rest of Star Trek. I love V and VI the most of the TOS movies.

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

Voyager has some very good stories, certainly, but I must confess that it tends to be last on my list of favorite Treks. Like all of them it took a while for it to find its stride, but by the middle of the 5th season it was all about Seven and the Doctor, and I was losing interest.

I like the idea of a woman as captain, but I think the writers got lazy with her. In one episode she'd be bending over backwards to try to think of a diplomatic solution without the need to fight, in the next she'd shoot first and ask questions later. I really hope this wasn't because the writers thought a woman would get away with less consistent behavior than a man would...

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

LOL, everyone, I am 50 so I was hooked on Star Trek before most of you. On the TOS movies. And this is before the Next Generation movies started. One rule you have to keep in mind.

"Even number on the "Star Trek Movies" don't suck. LOL, that means 2,4, 6 are worth watching.

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

I finished re-reading Shatner's Star Trek Movie Memories yesterday. A lot of the problems in STV aren't his fault as a director, as he got jerked around by the studio and his producer and budgets just like anyone else. He was disappointed that the ending was basically cobbled together and bore no resemblance to his initial goals.
Roddenberry, of course, hated it, just like he hated II, III, IV, and especially VI.

Before most of us? You don't know how old most of us are! There are some real old-timers here, older than you, even.

You should see how dangerous I am with my cane when I really lose my temper.

Hey... Clint Eastwood pulled off sounding threatening yelling "Get off my lawn!" in that Gran Torino movie.

No, no, no. You have to do it like the Three Stooges. Example:

Moe: They can't treat us like that! I'll fight them to the last drop of. . .(points at Curly). . .your blood!

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

My rankings:

TNG
DS9
Voyager
Star Trek
Enterprise

I like the top three more than I like the bottom two, even though the bottom two do have moments, and I respect Star Trek.

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

LOL, you people are killing me. So I got hold of really "mature" people. I guess that I am the young one in the crowd.

I thank you, I was going to paste a thought on Star Trek and the "Big Bang Theory" tomorrow. But I guess that would be wasted here.

Ya'll take it easy,

Oy

What are you annoyed about?

You were welcomed to the site and everyone talked about your thread topic, Voyager etc.. We are all ages here from early 20's to 60's. Most of us have seen most of Trek and age doesn't have much to do with it other than giving people specific stories about what they saw in the cinema.

You should stay and chat. We like new people and new thread starters
