Re: Favourite Trek Series

I watched a LOT of TNG in the 90´s and also really like ENT. The TOS movies are a mixed bag for me, TMP and TWOK are still great movies. But it´s an easy choice to vote for TOS - I grew up with it and still thoroughly enjoy it.

I'm surprised TNG is as low as it is.....

I did not expect DS9 to beat it...

Re: Favourite Trek Series

Earlier this year I decided to watch star trek as sort of a cultural obligation. I enjoyed ToS and TNG. But DS9 really made me a fan. It made me care about the universe.

The irony was that going into DS9, I assumed that because I had never heard of it, it must have been 'the bad one'.

Great to hear, Mimi! I'm a fan of all of them, but grew up on TNG and the TOS films. I watched DS9 last year and fell in love with Trek all over again. It's now without a doubt my favorite, and that's not something I say lightly. I'm making my way through Voyager now, which I watched off and on when it was first on, but never the whole way through. It's the last of the series that I haven't seen in its entirety. We'll see if I change my mind on my favorite...

Re: Favourite Trek Series

All though I haven't gotten through it's entirety, DS9 is shipping up to be my "favourite". I didn't mean anything against it, it was just I had been under the impression the fan favourite was TNG...

I went with the TOS movies. But, it's a near tie with the TOS for me.

I love the TOS movies as much as I love the TOS series (a lot). I sometimes seem the two as one entity.

TOS. I grew up watching those adventures, Kirk was my hero and there is this wonderful feeling of nostalgia I get whenever I watch an episode that few series can match.

DS9 is a close second, and I consider it the best Trek series, but my attachment to the TOS characters prevents it from being my favorite.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

I just finished watching voyager in my trek binge, and started the first season of enterprise. I felt Voyager had a lot of flaws, but it also had a charm to it that made me enjoy watching it. I wish they had spent some time developing some of the lesser used characters, but the Doctor easily ranks in my top ten favorite characters from the series so far.

DS9 is unquestionably my favorite, and I think I'd probably rank TOS second. Voyager and TNG sort of sit in a strange spot. TNG had better writing, acting, and stories, but I grew to like Voyager's dysfunctional crew.

Enterprise has been a bit harder to get through, but I've heard it gets better. I certainly can't fault it for trying something different.

Exactly. That's how I feel about them. The main reason I cast my vote for TOS movies was most of my favorite moments are in those.

DS9

TNG and Voyager keep swapping spots. TOS somewhere in the middle.

I went for DS9. I'm a huge TNG fan but I thought the darker story & plots in DS9 give it the edge as a series.

TOS movies. To me that's when Trek hit it's greatest stride.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

I voted for DS9.
DS9 rocks my world...in a very good way.

Close 2nd was Star Trek: The Motion Picture--Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country.
3rd was TNG.
4th was TOS.
Everything else tied for 5th.
