Re: Unpopular Trek Opinions — What Are Yours?

I thought I'd revive this thread to add my points.
- Kirk was the worst captain ever on Star Trek. He was nothing more than a Mary Sue in male form.
- ST:ENT is my favorite ST series. TOS is my least favorite.
- Q was a highly advanced being who was trying to guide humans to advance to their next step in evolution. Being an arrogant race, specially Picard, humans misunderstood his intentions. One of my favorite characters ever although not perfect.
- TWOK is terribly overrated.

Probably a bad idea to revive a thread that's been dormant for over six months.

But, I gotta ask before the lock, how is Kirk a "Mary Sue"?

Yeah, I'm curious on this one as well...

Unpopular opinions I have:
-Star Trek, as a whole, while entertaining, is not really good science-fiction.
-TWOK is not the gold standard for Trek everyone wishes it is.
-Retconning is a bad way to run a railroad.
Well, you're right about two of those.

What a way to revive a dead thread, by making such an outlandish statement that is probably the most unpopular opinion of all. It's not even an opinion, but more of a slanderous barb. I smell a troll given the circumstances. Either you never really watched TOS, or you're so detached from appreciating TOS for its time.
