Favorite Star Trek series?

Welcome to the General Discussion area where just about anything goes! This area is designed to discuss all matters and does not necessarily have to be Transformers related. Please keep topics relevant.

Umm...this is a TF Forum, that's why the Topic is General Discussion.

And, paragraphs are your friends. So is independent thought...

You must have the trek poster...yeah I think you do. Its my opinion that your opinion is incorrect and mine is correct, and its my opinon that you havent had an independant thought since you taped your last Enterprise episode. Thats just my freely expressed opinion though... An enlightened person like you wont take issue with that.

And paragraphs are for letters to Congress or Dear Johns, not star trek forums with people who believe warp drive and klingons are cool.

I however am cool... and your next response to my posts will make me cooler. Go upstairs and tell your mom you looked for a job today or she will be mad. GO!

Goobertron. Moff-V8. You are new to this site so perhaps you don't know. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. You hate Star Trek. Fine. I can accept that. This is the general Discussion thread. It's a place for non tf related discussions. Now, if you want to enter this thread and say you don't like Star Trek, and give reasons for that (like you did about the storylines), it's also fine. However, if you enter threads and start slagging off the people who are interesterd in things you are not, you will find you quickly make enemies. Such as people have discovered many times in the new movie forum. If you don't like ST, why did you enter this thread? To slag us off? not cool guys, not cool at all.

You are right, I was deliberately slagging you and wanted to invoke just the response I got. I am deeply ashamed.

Star trek sucks because its fans cant let a dead horse lie down.

Uh Oh Spaghettios!

:lol: I'm trying to help you out man. And, beware of the way of opinion...it often contradicts fact:

No, I won't take issue with your freely expressed, emotive, internet chicken-scratch, because I already know that it won't last. Have all the fun you want. You're cool.

I have no idea what just happened above, since I didn't read any of the topic before I posted. Anyways. I've always liked Star Trek ever since a friend of mine got me into ST:TNG. That's probably my favorite series, but the "classic" series has to be the most interesting. It started everything, after all ;) I've seen bits of the "revamped" Star Trek series, with the new theme music and model shots. They did a pretty good job of fitting that stuff into the old show.

Well I said I dont like Star Trek more because of visual affects and I expressed that. And like I said I dont hate it, I just dont like it. I think they could have done much better with such a vast scheme, I mean its space, with countless ideas that could have been used. But think what you like. I saw this thread and thought to post how I feel about Star Trek. Maybe since this thread isnt called, "why you dont like Star Trek", you will consider it a thread jack or slagging or whatever. Its simply my perception of that show. Maybe I dislike it because it had such potential and never reached the greatness level it could have achieved. Or maybe I think it blows. But its just my opinion, that doesnt mean you need to get mad at me.

This kind of attitude is not needed or wanted around here. The other mods have warned you twice so consider this your third and final warning.

I honestly don't know. I've never seen an episode that's just what I've heard.

Granted, I've heard that from Star Wars fans, so take what you will.

Well, Star Wars and Star Trek fans ( traditionally ) don't see eye to eye. I actually heard the reason it was taken off the air orginally was cause the stories were too complex for the average 5-9 year old. TAS was actually aimed at TOS fans, who were probably eaither teenagers or adults in their 20's - 30's at that time.

I outta pick up the boxset and do an episode to episode review one of these days here. :-?

Chances are then, that'd I'd like the animated series. I like how the original cast evolved into the characters they played in the movies, with the exception of the Motion Picture. Between TOS and the Wrath of Khan, they seemed to learn how to act, and the writers learned how to tell a good story, to me anyway.

I always liked The Motion Picture, it's my fav Trek Film.

There's also a site dedicated to TAS, and it has the episodes, audio only, to dowload. Just listening to it was pretty cool, sorta like the old school stories one could hear on the radio long ago.

My aploagies Goobertron. I was not actually angry, I was calmly stating that general mud throwing was not acceptable behaviour. However, your original post did come across as a bit nasty to those who do like it. But what you wrote the second time may say the same thing, but it's in a much better way. Nicer to those who like it. And that's all we ask.
