    Wooden acting in TNG and VOY?


    What?:shrug:


    I don't think there is one best Trek series that stands above the others. I'm being diplomatic. This is how I feel.

    There is no objective standard for "best Trek" or "worst Trek". You like what you like. There's a very funny YouTube video about why the Youtuber hates "The Inner Light". Her opinion is just as valid as the prevailing one: I can declare that I disagree with her, but I can't tell her that she's wrong.

    Exactly. The idea that there is some standard that makes Trek Trek is one that I find very strange indeed.

    What's makes a STAR TREK show Trek?

    Usually, I go by the actual title of the series.

    Sounds like it'd be a good title for a thread as well.

    Ah, okay. Understood. Up until season 3, episode 3, when they added STAR TREK.

    But keep in mind that during the title sequence, it says 'Based Upon STAR TREK', so it is still in there.

    Besides, I firmly feel ENTERPRISE is a valuable addition to the ST universe. Definitely a Trek show.

    "Spock's Brain" was not a bad episode.
    ENT is better than DIS, PIC, SHO, LOW, and SNW.
    DIS, PIC, SHO, and SNW are in an alternate universe.
    TAS is canon.

    Strange New Worlds is not perfect. It is not the best Star Trek ever made. It has some issues with actors, characterisation, and plot. It is, however, vastly superior to Discovery in every conceivable way, and very much the show Discovery SHOULD have been.

    I'm not sure people would've been so quick to appreciate what Strange New Worlds is doing without Discovery coming first to show off what modernised serialised Trek looks like.

    Discovery isn't Trek that's modernized; it's modern expectation for a generic sci-fi show with the label Trek slapped on it. It's sort of gone the full circle. Modern sci-fi has been influenced by years of Trek. And now a Trek show that is modern sci-fi.

    I’m well aware of the thread title, thanks.

    I was literally trying to understand what you said, but yeah I get it now.
