I considered putting the films in, but chose not to for a reason, yes ST:V was pretty bad, but ST:VI was very good, so it was more or less like a ‘bad episode’ of a ‘good series.’ Some might...

So the reboot is working, but when did Trek go wrong in the first place?

So the question is, when did Trek ‘jump the shark?’

Most of us would agree that Trek was dying (or dead) a few years ago. But when did it start to go downhill for you? A few ideas:

I am sure that you and GR share similar beliefs based on this statement. However to presume that atheism is based on reason is fundamentally flawed.

Pre-TOS we only really have ENT and the UFP was not even established, so the point is moot in that time frame.
From TOS through UC it is...

Well said TMRiddle!

We may have differing political ideals, however as I said before, it is the differences between the crew of TOS that made them great. No one political, sexual, or...

While I think that this was in fact the best Trek to date, it was not perfect. My peeves are:

1 – the engine room beer set.
2 – Sulu needed a bit more screen time
3 – the minute Sulu pulled out his...

5- TSFS
