Re: Favourite Trek Series

I enjoyed TOS, TNG and DS9 very much. But if I had to pick a favorite it would be DS9. I think I enjoy it the most because it even dared to question that perfect earth/non conflict utopia that tended to bland TNG.

IMO,of the film franchises I have to give it to the first cast. Out of the six films they did I enjoyed four of them(II,III,IV and VI) and three of those were outstanding. The TNG cast did four films and I only liked two of them(First Contact and Insurrection) with only one being outstanding. The JJ Verse films have been good but more time needs to pass before I can judge their staying power.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

TNG. I like a lot of the other series too (aside from Enterprise) but there the characters and stories were so good and I especially like how well they did from within the constraints of a quasi-utopian (at least a very admirable) future.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

TNG is my favorite, with TOS as second.

TNG had the best sci-fi themes for me, often touching on existential. TOS was the best adventure. Both series had a dose of mystery I like in sci-fi.

TNG still seems the most futuristic to me in atmosphere, and a lot of that comes from somewhat detached characters, not always relatable, sometimes even alien humans of 24th century, at least at first. Like the detachment of 80s minimal-synth music which I still associate with futurism.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

TNG is my favorite but I also like TOS, DS9, and the old movies. VOY and ENT were OK, I guess.

I enjoyed nuTrek but it still doesn't seem like "Trek" to me. Entertaining movies though.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

^ ^ I agree.

The nuTrek was too..... actioney, almost. Not enough "diplomacy", as we're used in Trek....


Fantastic movies, though. Love Abrams.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

I voted DS9, as for how I rank the series....

1. DS9
2. TNG
3. VOY [On its day, it can be my #1 and it frequently switches with TNG]
4. ENT
5. TOS

JJ's I just cant get on board with. To me, it isn't Star Trek.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

DS 9 is getting a lot of love in this poll. Currently in the lead. Sisko would be proud.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

TNG, DS9, and Voyager are my favorites. TNG ranked first, than DS9, and then Voyager. I've always gone back and forth in terms of ranking Voyager or Star Trek third, but I think I go back to watch Voyager more than I go back to watch Star Trek. I did actually watch a Star Trek episode last night though.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

Deep Space Nine, though TOS is right there with it.
In terms of films, the Abrams films are my favorites.

Re: Favourite Trek Series

Thanks for voting and weighing in, everyone!

Interesting results so far. TOS took the early lead but the Niners have come out of the woodwork to push it as the clear favourite. And while the TNG movies and TAS have their supporters, it seems no voters thus far consider either to be their favourite. I also figured there would be more J.J. Abrams fans as I had the impression that a bunch of folks joined this site when Star Trek 2009 came out.

I contemplated a category for unofficial fan-type videos (New Voyages, Of Gods and Men, Renegades, etc.) but ultimately decided not to include this in the poll.

80+ voters is a pretty good sample size, though nowhere near the amount of people that would vote on a StarTrek.com poll (though I wonder how many multiple-vote voters there are on that site)... Has StarTrek.com done a similar poll? The closest I found was


July 07 - 2013

Which series have you watched the most?
  1. The Original Series - 4904 (19%)
  2. The Animated Series - 67 (0%)
  3. The Next Generation - 11032 (43%)
  4. Deep Space Nine - 3441 (13%)
  5. Voyager - 5244 (20%)
  6. Enterprise - 1184 (5%)
