     It was the best of the franchise. 
   

Nah. People just like to say that because it was a little more dark and gritty. TNG was the best. Gene would agree

I am not a big Trek dude but I enjoy Voyager. 7of9. The final episode(s) are the best time travel weirdness conundrums ever IMO.

There was something about Star Trek: Enterprise that made it my favorite spinoff. Maybe it was more of a wild west feel than the more sterile feel of the other spinoffs. Maybe it was something else, I just don't know.

With the consistent subtexts of "honor" and devotion to duty (as in TNG), Voyager tends to focus more on the concept of "The Quest", "home", and friendship.

That one where Tom Paris went Warp 10 and went infinitely fast so that he became everything and this mess of weirdness was pretty funny.

I loved Jordy's reading rainbow series.  When did he get his eyes fixed?

the doctor character in enterprise was terrific! I really enjoyed the series and have it on dvd!
 I haven't indulged in voyager or deep space nine yet.  I'm waiting for the right mood, then I will plow through each series in a couple weeks on netflix.

i'm glad you mentioned geordi (jordy will suffice).  while i like his character and wouldn't want to see geordi played by anyone else, levar burton's acting in tng was sometimes reeeeeeally bad.  he had a tendency to do that fake stutter thing actors sometimes do in order to try and look like they're not acting.  a lot of child actors are known for this.  the kid from walking dead comes to mind.

Kinda cool. You can go to the CBS web site, pull down the shows 'drawer' and all the Trek series are available to play there...... and some other blasts from the past.

fo free!?  I was actually thinking I may go back and watch some.  I was never a big fan and only watched random re-runs off all the spin offs.  I liked deep space nine the most... i think.  Which one was whoopi on again?

It makes me cry. And it's another great example of TNG passing on cultural/historical capital. I never heard of the epic of Gilgamesh until that episode

I remember back in the day there was a graphic novel series called Gilgamesh.  It was really well done and was my introduction to the story.

I hate TV shows when they start bringing in relatives of the major characters.  NG did a lot of that.  Think about Seinfeld - the lamer shows were the ones featuring George's and Jerry's parents (the episode with Elaine's dad being the exception to the rule - that guy apparently scared them on the set in real life and they didn't have him back).

My least favorite of the original series was the Trouble with Tribbles.  Apparently that one ranks high on the fans favorite list AND the most disliked list.

George's parents are hysterical. Jerry's not as much but they certainly don't ruin the show.

lawrence tierney.  he was stealing silverware from the lunch table.  they were probably going to have him back had he not been so troublesome to work with.  did you ever see the interview with chris penn where he talks about working with tierney on reservoir dogs?  what a crazy cat.

generally, i just piece together concocted facts which are seemingly plausible and present them as reality.  it usually works.
