Actually that was one of the biggest flaws of ENT. I felt so embarrassed to be a Trek fans while watching that series because of how many near naked bodies and decon scenes thrown at our faces.

Agreed. All that random nudity just seemed as artificial as... well dare I say it, T'Pol's boobs. If I wanted random nudity and sexiness I'd just go for the real thing instead of a sci-fi show.

Well we all know Trekkies are scared of nudity and sex.

I always thought that Trekkies were scarred by nudity and sex.

Several of the classic Sci-fi novels feature random sex scenes.

Given a long speech about how noble it would be to sacrifice yourself to save two others that Tuvix would have no choice but to fall on his sword.
I disagree! I think picard would have advocated tuvix as his own being and capable of making his own choice. Im actually surprised Janeway went so hitler on him.

Shows the difference in maturity between her and picard (and even Sisko).. Her pompousness is one of the reasons I was never a big fan of voyager.

There were several episodes when I was like "Who does this !@#!@# think she is???"
Pilot ep: "She's the Captain."

Another era, where random sex scenes made you cutting edge.

There was nothing sexy about those scenes. They were all embarrassingly juvenile. It felt like they were written by 15 year old.

Trek has never handled sex well, mostly it always comes off as a joke.

Yep. That's why subtext is better. Though I didn't exactly mind NuKirk in bed with Gaila, that was fun and normal.

This is the sexiest scene Trek ever did IMO, or rather the only sexy scene Trek ever did.

The fifteen year old male was the target demographic of the Trek producers.

I don't know what the heck is wrong with Trek writers that they found it completely impossible to write "smart and sexy".

Someone will now remind me that Star Trek is "a family show".

Except in 1966, when I was a fifteen year old male.

And yep you are right, TOS was hitting all the "right" demographics and was canceled because at that time the networks were only looking at total numbers. When they finally switched over to "demographics" they discovered that they had canceled the wrong show. This was about the same time that CBS discovered all their widely watched shows were appealing to older people and they canceled really popular TV shows because the "demographic" that advertisers wanted were young people not the older ones that watched CBS.

In 1966, when you were fifteen and I was nineteen, the viewers of TOS were the "perfect" demographic and the networks didn't know it.

Re: Janeway's Decision to Kill Tuvix

In 1966 my mother was 11.

A couple years later, and I do mean a couple, by the time she discovered beer, I think that she forgot that television existed.

This. I understand the moral and ethical issue with the whole Tuvix thing, but I don't think I'd be able to write Tuvok and Neelix off as dead if there was a way to get them back. They have the right to have their lives back.
