    Why? Why should someone bypass TOS for TNG/DS9 when they were seemingly drawn in by the big-screen action-adventures of Kirk and Spock. That would be like me telling someone who liked First Contact and an episode or two of TNG to go watch TOS instead. :rolleyes:

    Possibly because people drawn in by the NuTrek may be turned off by the comparatively slow pace of TOS.

    I love TNG and like DS9, but they are both slow as molasses when compared to TOS.

    Like the logic there. Really curious to read how TOS=>ENT, or ENT=>TOS works for a first-time viewer.
