    I love it, I have been watching it from when I wake up - when I sleep, I have been doing this for some time now and I am now currently watching S7E12

    My father lived in the time of Star wars and star trek, comics all that stuff. I had never before thought about watching any of the old tv shows he had claimed famous before but I thought surely if millions of people all around the world had watched it and famed it, and their are over a thousand episodes surely it would be worth looking in to. I clicked on a random episode from the website fastpasstv.ms and It was amazing I realized that it served as the bases for this type of tv and all the tv I watch today carry the ideas and topics that were spawned in these old tv shows. I am now a fan.

    Click on a episode, click on a portal, watch a episode. You will fall in love. Star Trek The Next Generation | Fast Pass TV

    S
    ince posting this thread, I have watched all of
    Star Trek: TNG
    Star Trek: Enterprize

    And am currently watching Star Trek Voyager
    On season 3

    I've always liked Star Trek TNG, I watched them all when they first came out. I even bought the Borg video boxset, they were my favourite episodes by the way, the borg, best of both world's.

    it has its good points...but human culture is so unimaginative, unrealistic and boring .... Ro Laren was one of the only "real characters" in the entire cast. Everything too clean, tidy and even and crew relationships rather sterile--socialist utopia with a heavy bleaching of Clorox . As I mentioned to my wife from time to time, I wanted to see at least one scene with a touch screen winder washer by the race with max 80 IQ "being all they can be."

    Most of the other alien races were painfully one-dimensional--Enterprise did a better job on that count with some deeper explorations of the Andorian and Volcans.

    The series had it's share of crap episodes, but then also some of the best SF I have seen, with a few seriously good episodes. By far the best Star Trek series for me.

    Just in case anyone is interested, STTNG's first season comes out in blu-ray on the 24th of this month. They've redone the special effects (to bring them up to HD quality.

    Here's a Standard and HD comparison shot.

    I think that all the races in STTNG are each their own branch of human personality templates, We have all encountered the Borg and Romuluns the other STTNG races in our lifetime but, of course all human, and on Earth.

    There is a reason why there are so many humanoid races in Star Trek.

    I grew up on that show. As well as Babylon 5 and what there was of Earth 2.

    I watched it all over again on Netflix followed by all of DS9 and now I'm watching the original series. I've got all my old favorites on there: SeaQuest, all the Star Treks, Sliders, etc.

    Definitely a fun show. I'd love to see a new series. Maybe a little grittier than the previous ones. I've always imagined a series in the near future where the Borg have devastated the Alpha quadrant and the other races have to struggle to survive, form unlikely alliances. Maybe even something on HBO with a big budget and no rules. Might offend the traditionalists, though.

    I just want to say, the show big bang theory is ridiculous.
    I hate that show, I just hate it. So stupid. I'm sorry if I offend you in some way. I just must tell you, to tell a big bang viewer that.

    Absolutely and utterly a futile source of... entertainment, excitement, everything..

    Don't you dare put that face or any other : ) on your next comment.. Don't you dare for the sake of your own self and your own ingenuity.
    Please, I am serious.

    aw, dude, it's just a comedy. nothing more, and nothing less. shouldn't be taken too seriously just entertainment. it's funny once you get into it.

    is it too "over the top"(too hard to believe) for you? is that what the issue is? i was a bit annoyed with Sheldon's character when I first started watching, but towards the end I started to like him.

    dude, why you apologizing? how can you offend me? did i write the show? lol. i was just curious as to why you didn't like it that's all.
    it sounds like you are just not into comedy type of shows since you said it is a useless source of entertainment. what type of entertainment do you prefer? i know sci-fi (star trek) seems to float your boat.

    i share a similar attitude towards modern day parody's, and movies similar to The Dictator. I find it over the top w/ a few funny scenes. I don't really like such movies. they get annoying real fast.

    No, unacceptable. Honestly!, It doesn't matter. I also confidently doubt I would find it to be interesting if I watched a whole season.

    I would never allow my self to enjoy such ridiculous and... I am unable to describe.. I would not allow myself to watch anything like that show.

    How is Star trek Enterprise with Scott Bakula? I have read one or two bad reviews and don't like that they have inferior technology to the other seasons. How is it? More "boldly go where no man has gone before", or not?

    I like it, but some people don't because it's lower tech and "more realistic" where they can't just use magical technology to solve problems. It's like watching a 70's show for us. Have to love the cars, the clothes, the music. But some people will still like Justin Beiber.
    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    That was never actually my problem with it. My problem came when they did the something of the opposite; introduce things or ideas that they shouldn't have had any knowledge of during their time. They had an episode with the Borg when it had been established that Starfleet's first knowledge of them didn't occur until the time of TNG. They had an episode with the Romulans and gave them a cloaking device, when it had established that this was new technology to them at the time of the TOS episode. There are some other examples where they screwed with the "prehistory" of the other series that took place after them chronologically.

    I know that I'm not the only one who voiced this same complaint.

    I liked it until the end; I found the story arc of the last half dozen episodes boring. Before that, I loved it.

    Most TV science fiction shows are at best average all the time and only few produce an occassional gem of an episode. I watch them because I like science fiction, but do not make the mistake of thinking it is great science fiction. For the moment that remains in the written form, where the special effects alone are so much better.

    Star Trek is, pardon the pun, nexus Sci-Fi.

    Through it, War of the Worlds and Time Machine ride into the age of Ender's Game and the like.

    The greatest sci-fi TV long-term experience (5 years +) in entertainment history.

    I have always found that science fiction that has an underlying storyline thats develops over several episodes or series is more entertaining that than single episode storylines, they leave wanting more like in a book, you're always hungry for that next piece of puzzle.
