Quirks in your likes/dislikes?

Do you have any quirky or odd likes or dislikes, faves or hates?

I love "Spectre" and "Eden" of TOS. I find "Balance of Terror" dull.

I enjoy the first two seasons of TNG and find DS9 over-rated.

Do you have any of what most people here would find to be quirky likes or dislikes?

I like TNG's seventh season, Generations and Nemesis.

I think The City on the Edge of Forever is overrated.

I love both Bread and Circuses and The Omega Glory.

I actually like the first two seasons of TNG far more than what came later. Never did warm to DS9, primarily because of Nana Visitor.

Re: Quirks in your likes/dislikes?

I love both the TOS Enterprise and the nuEnterprise equally.

I like the TOS uniforms in the first two pilot episodes better than the classic ones used for the rest of the series.

I think the TMP uniforms were cool.

I liked the original (Seasons 1 and 2) TNG uniforms.

I like Wesley Crusher.

I rank Insurrection and Nemesis above First Contact.

I thought Simon Pegg was great as Scotty in Star Trek XI.

Re: Quirks in your likes/dislikes?

I really like seasons 2 and 7 of TNG.

I, too, like Wesley.

TMP is no. 3 on my ranking of Trek films from best to worst.

I think 11:59 is a great episode.

All of Enterprise is rather wonderful.

I abhor the JJ Abrams movie, even though every fibre of my being expected to love it.

Re: Quirks in your likes/dislikes?

I dislike wesley Crusher, but I adore the episode "the dauphin"

If I am not trying to think too hard, I enjoy episodes like "The Royale", "Up the Long ladder", and Devils Due.

Only recently have I learned to stop worrying and enjoy First Contact (the episode)...

Even if it a better episode, If you gave me a choice between TNG "Where no man has gone before" and "Justice" I would pick "Justice" every time.

Even I made a couple attempts to watch Voyager. I cannot make it though Season 1...
(Though the much worse season 1 of TNG I can watch)

I don't find Kira to be a whine, Jazdia Annoys me, even if she gorgeous,

I enjoy the bad TOS like Bread and Circuses in many ways more then the good ones.

I am not a huge fan of City on the edge of forever....

Re: Quirks in your likes/dislikes?

I love the large majority of TOS season 3. There's a lot of stuff here that doesn't get the respect it deserves imo.

I like The Motion Picture, Final Frontier, and Generations.

Put me down as another huge fan of "The Royale". The humor in that one is great.

Re: Quirks in your likes/dislikes?

I like: "Spock's Brain," "Devil's Due," "Sub Rosa," "Doctor's Orders," and probably a lot of other usually-disliked episodes that I'm blanking on.

I'm not a huge fan of "Best of Both Worlds Part II."

Re: Quirks in your likes/dislikes?

TNG is my least favorite series (leaving TAS out of the equation) by a mile. That seems to be an uncommon sentiment.

I love ST:V.

Re: Quirks in your likes/dislikes?

^ I'm not a huge fan of ST V, but I like Spock's hidden pain scene. It's a great way to bookend the character: What was said at his birth in scorn was said at his death as praise. Kind of makes you think.

In TOS The Way to Eden, Spock's Brain and The Lights of Zatar are some of my favorite episodes.

Re: Quirks in your likes/dislikes?

I like TNG's "Up The Long Ladder" more than most seem to. And I'm primarily a TOS fan. Indeed I like a good portion of TNG's first and second seasons.
