    An interesting mix of headshots and screenshots there. Can't really tell what they used for Burton.

    I didn't get into Star Trek until much later, but I could remember playing with friends in my neighborhood, then abruptly having to stop, because they had to go because "Star Trek" was coming on :)

    I have the impression every new Star Trek series after TOS has been vigorously hated by certain groups of fans, back when it was airing. Simply because they dared to deviate from their conception of what Star Trek 'should' be.

    It's the Internet's fault. It's all the internet's fault.

    "If it ain't Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, then it ain't Star Trek!"

    Time would eventually say otherwise...

    I didn't get to see TNG until some time after the U.S. as it was only on satellite over here and we didn't have it. By the time it came on the BBC I was desperate to see it. I really don't recall any negative opinion over here.

    The Ent E really is truly fugly though...

    I have to be honest. Back then, my father was the real Trek fan in the family. I was just a casual viewer of both "The Original Series" and "Next Generation". So, I didn't pay much attention to how Trek fans had responded to the latter after it first premiered. My father, on the other hand, became a fan of TNG, even TOS had continued to be his favorite for years. The only Trek series he had difficulty in embracing before he had passed away was "Enterprise".
