Re: How many individual Star Trek adventures are there?

Doesn't the new movie count as two adventures? Saving Nibiru at the start and the Khan stuff later. Then we get into all the episodes with totally random B-plots...

That means you can watch one different adventure every day for close to 2 years.
The Dominion War, by the most conservative definition, takes up 27 hours. Even a Bajoran day wouldn't be long enough.

Without story arcs, you can play the episodes in any order and they'll still make sense. Aside from major changes such as Yar's death, and character introductions, there are very few issues you would run into if you just hit Shuffle when watching TNG
I also prefer episodic to story arcs. I like sitting down and getting a complete story in an hour or two, I also like being able to watch a series as I chose too and not be forced to follow a long winded single story for fifteen episodes where very little happens in twelve of them.

True! The Pineapple Arc on ENT deserves a session all its own.

I much prefer episodic Star Trek to the long story arcs. I never watched soap operas and I never understood the fascination they held for others.
Nor do I wathc SOap Operas, that doesn't mean I don't like arc based story telling. Both episodic and arc based story telling have their place.

Shows like NCIS are largely episodic based, whilst shows like B5 are more arc based. But even in an episodic show do we as the viewer expect some sort of continuity? esp. in a show whose premise lends itself towards a more arc based form of story telling?

SG-1 was another largely episodic show but they had a mythology which they developed and frequently called back to previous episode. Sure it had an overall arc to defeat the Gou'ald, the Ori, find the Ancietns etc..
