Re: Soon-To-Be GF wants to watch Trek with me...Where to start?

One thing that hasn't been mentioned is how she generally responds to old shows.

I've tried watching TNG, but it is so incredibly dated that it just annoys me. I haven't been able to sit through a whole episode and I've tried numerous times. I haven't given TOS a chance because I assume that will be even worse.

Voyager been 20 years old doesn't bother me, because I watched it when it first came out. I can see where it is dated but I love it all the more for it.

If she generally doesn't watch really old shows, I'd probably go with something from DS9 or voyager.

"SOON TO BE GF" <-- That's an expression I never heard before.

Either you are the stud among the studs, or she is the "soon to be ex-soon-to-be-gf"

Keep Star Trek out of this for the moment.

BUT IF you are right, show Kirk falling for Edith Keeler and Rayna Kapek and then being a jerk with the Triskelian girl (I forget her name) and Janice Rand (the good Kirk / bad Kirk episode). That will give har an idea of the latitude us male Trekkers are capable of.

Also Spock betraying the Romulan Commander and the blonde from the spores planet. That will surely help. When she begins to talk about marriage, it's Amok Time time.

Go with "The Trouble with Tribbles". It's always a hit.

And if she doesn't want a second date with you because you're a Star Trek fan, she's not good enough for you.

And I know what I'm talking about: Star Trek fan since 1966, married since 1983, three adult kids (all Trek fans).

Live long and prosper, dude!

So, my soon-to-be GirlFriend wants to watch Star Trek with me.
She wants to because it is one of my interests.
Where should I start? Kirk or Picard?
I don't know if she'll like The Original Series, at least until she knows more about it.
I refuse to, even though I own the, subjugate my senses to the JJVerse again.

What are your opinions?
It is easier to break through the galactic barrier, than it is the friend zone.
