That series had the most ...

I've been watching all the series on DVD and am half way through Voyager. I've noticed something about Voyager that had me thinking, "This has to be the most of any ST series."

Has anyone else noticed little things that seem to come in abundance in a series? Here's mine, unoffcial, and on average without really checking. In other words, I think ...

Voyager - Most 1 word episode titles. (This one got me thinking.)
TOS - Most captain/alien romances.
DS9 - Longest openings before the opening credits. (Some of these were REALLY long.)

Hell, by that logic...

TNG - most eps with an android
DS9 - most eps with a shapeshifter
ENT - most eps with a female vulcan

All of Trek collectively - most eps with opening credits

I think Enterprise gives Voyager a run for its money with shortest openings.

The teaser for "Impulse" was shorter than "Scorpion, Part One."

Some long teasers include:
"Darmok"
"Ship in a Bottle"
"Seige of AR-558"

I think Enterprise eventually beats Voyager with most one word titles. Especially if you count "The _______" as a one word title.

And the pre-credit teasers really got shorter in Voyager, and even shorter in Enterprise. At times I wondered why they even bothered, since their teasers never contributed anything to the episodes.

And this isn't the result of "changing times." The Stargates usually have 3-5 minute teasers. Sometimes BSG had 10 minute teasers, which were even longer than DS9's.

Most technobabble- Probably a tie between DS9 and Voyager.

"Cause and Effect" was very short too. The Enterprise blows up - go to commercial.

Did you actually watch DS9? It had easily the least technobabble of all the Treks.

Technobabble crown can only be disputed between TNG and VOY.

Conversely, I haven't counted, but I think that DS9 had most episodes with long titles.

^Admittedly, it's been a while, but I've recently rewatched the first disk or two of DS9 season one, and everyone is certainly spouting the stuff! But I'm sure Voyager would take the prize - did an episode ever go by without it?
