    Worse. She was glaringly obviously meant to be a clone of McCoy. And a rather ham-handed one, at that. :D

    I was going to point out the spelling error, but I kind of like "wooses". Think if it, a whole new Star Trek term could have just been coined.

    Omega Glory is one of TOS' best episodes.
    Insurrection is the best NG movie.
    Much of STV is great.
    The movie Refit Enterprise IS NOT better than TOS Enterprise, just more angular.
    The JJPrise is cool.
    I liked the Borg Queen better in Dark Frontier than in First Contact.
    The phaser FX SUCKED after TOS, in EVERY show & movie (STV corrected that a little, though).
    The beaming FX SUCKED after TOS, in EVERY show and movie!
    Spock's Brain is Star Trek at its finest!

    Okay, that last one was a gag.;)

    I'm chiming in to say that I agree with these.

    Though still quite enjoyable in it's own right, Deep Space Nine is a total rip off of Babylon 5.

    How do you know it's not the other way around??

    And yes, I already know JMS' side of the story, but it's interesting that I've never heard Rick Berman's.

    Is it possible that by his silence, Berman was simply taking the high road?

    - Voyager is my favorite Star Trek series.
    - Deep Space Nine is my least favorite. (When I say this, I say a solid B- to Voyager's A+ or TOS's A)
    - My favorite DS9 episodes are the "sci-fi" episodes of the first 3 seasons ("Move Along Home," "Babel," "Dramatis Personae," "Paradise," "Visionary" etc.)
    - TNG Seasons 1 - 3 are better than 4 - 7.
    - I thought the Enterprise finale was a great episode, and a fitting finale.
    - "The Inner Light," "The Visitor," "Far Beyond the Stars" and "Family" are terribly boring, bland, and uninteresting episodes.
    - I do actually enjoy the Ferengi episodes of DS9, including "Profit and Lace."
    - "The Wrath of Khan" is a fine movie, but I hate the ending.
    - "Insurrection" and "Nemesis" are great, enjoyable Star Trek movies.
    - I have a great respect for all of the people behind Trek, including Rick Berman (my one BIG beef with him is dumbing down the music in Trek: TNG) and Brannon Braga.
    - Voyager's "Relativity" is one of Top 20 Trek episodes, and would have been an awesome concept for a Series V. (Either that or a post-Voyager series with connections/plots/aliens from the DQ and GQ)

    Likely, he just didn't care.

    RHW wrote about the issue online, which I'm sure can be found somewhere. Let's just say that he rather disagreed with the proposition.

    I would love to know a little more about why you prefer seasons 1-3 of TNG to 4-7. I'm not trying to be a smartass, start an argument or whatever. That's just not an opinion I've run into very many times.

    I actually prefer The Next Generation seasons 1 and 2 versus what came later.

    The feel of the show definitely changed when Maurice Hurley left and Micheal Piller came aboard. It almost felt as if the show started buying into its own hype and started taking itself way too seriously. It was no longer fun to watch.

    I'd rather watch Lonely Among Us, Justice, Skin of Evil, Where Silence Has Lease or Contagion versus anything that was produced later.
