I'm sure there has been a variation of this discussion before. I have a co-worker who want to watch "Star Trek". She's in her thirties, didn't grow up in the United States, but enjoys lots of Western television. (She's a big Person of Interest fan.) She doesn't know what Star Trek is. I mean, just telling her that there was more than one show with different characters in each kind of threw her. The names "Kirk" and "Spock" or "Picard" and "Data" don't mean anything to her. I'm a TOS guy through and through. But I don't think throwing her a fifty year old show and just telling her how amazing it is would be a good idea. The guidance I'm considering is: a) Watch Encounter at Farpoint. Then jump to season 3. b) Watch The Wrath of Khan. c) Watch the Kelvin movies. Help me out here, fans! Thanks!
