    I’m curious to know how TNG stands up as a body of work. I recall loving it in the early part of the century but it’s been a long while since I saw 95% of it.

    Maybe in 2025 when I finally attempt to redeem These Are The Voyages I’ll make a TNG rewatch thread.

    I mean, a lot of is still great, but lets jus say that in the year 2022, the way women are written, treated, and portrayed in TNG is not... stupendous.

    It's not too late for you to rewatch TNG (and TOS and Voyager) alongside Enterprise, alternating between episodes like I've been doing! You just need to get through the season 1s quickly, then you can get them synced up.

    Okay I admit I cheated a little bit and watched season 7's The Pegasus right before These Are the Voyages... It didn't help.

    Season 2 is the peak of Next Gen to me. It's just that among the greatness, there are a few embarrassing ones.

    There always are. That's TV writing. Every series has gems and stinkers.

    I have attempted to rewatch it and struggled with Season 3. I would be curious to hear when you do.

    Now that ‘strange new worlds’ are out, a remake og the time where TNG are from would be super great, if you ask me.

    I struggle a bit with the whole Q part of Star Trek, but when I saw TNG as the first star trek series, I have always had a particularly good relationship with the series, but after I have streamed 4 different star trek series for the last many years, in rotation on Netflix I must say that the fascination of the next generation has fallen, but it was my entrance into the Star Trek universe and will always have a special place in my heart.

    I get that. TOS, namely "The Cage" and "Where No Man Has Gone Before" was my insert and I always will enjoy those.

    TOS was my gateway for sure, and those are two fun episodes!!

    Hi everyone!

    I'm new to the BBS but not to Star Trek. I saw the Wrath of Khan as a kid and was hooked ever since. Favorite series... right now I'd have to say TOS, DS9, and I'm doing a little too much LDS.

    I...
    am in the process of watching TNG, DS9, and Discovery! I haven't been a fan for too long, but I am happy to have it now a part of my life. I prefer Star Trek over Star Wars, andd hope to perhaps do some more Star Trek cosplay in the future. I've had a try at Data, and now want to give a go at someone neat like Dax, or Lwaxana. heh

    I'm new here and think I should say hello.

    Hello.

    I'm very much into TOS from a very long time ago and I'm enjoying SNW at the moment. I've joined more to learn than anything else. I thank you.

    Well, Kang was in ‘Day of the Dove’ and you are called ‘Captain Dove’, so it would make sense. :D

    Hi. Saw episodes and movies of Star Trek over the years but in 2015 started watching it from the beginning. Up to episode 292 overall now. Thought joining this forum would add some fun to the next 500+.
