TOS is best. All others were just trying to copy and recapture the magic that is The Original Series.

Well TNG made it's own thing in time but at first it did seem to try to recapture lost glory. DS9 was the most different for me. It didn't feel like it was doing more of the same, contrary to TNG, VOY and ENT.

^The first couple seasons of DS9 had a lot of "planet of the week" episodes that could just have easily been done on TNG. But it got better.

TOS is Star Trek. Everything else is just spin-offs.

I would venture that every STAR TREK fan above a certain age likes TOS. By definition.

To a guy like me, 51, asking if a STAR TREK fan likes TOS seems like asking if the Pope is Catholic.


Another fan above a certain age here. I like TOS, but I don't love it. I love TNG and DS9.

Yeah. Let's say in the first season in particular, they didn't seem to know where they were going with this. To be honest, I missed most of the second season the first time around, in part because of this, and in part because of the changing time slot on ABC.

But it got better
Understatement.

Re: how many of you realy like the TOS tv show

I'm honestly curious if the OP started this topic not knowing whether it would become another "TOS IS THE BEST THING EVAR" circle-jerk, since that's kind of clearly the only thing it was capable of becoming.

I'm sure you'd have no issue if it had turned into a "TNG/DS9 ARE THE BEST THING EVAR" circle-jerk.

Why can't we all agree that Trek is the best thing ever and have a drink ?

You may want to take a look at the TOS, TrekArt and TrekTech forums.
