I am an Originalist in Star Trek which is possibly tied to my vintage.  Spock, Kirk, Bones & Scotty set a standard that others have been trying to reach since.  Lt. Uhura on the bridge, Mr. Chekov a Russian Navigator, and Non-intervention were pushing many an envelop in their day. 

Lt. Dax in DS9 always intrigued me and I felt was underutilized for what she could have done with scripts. 

Another reason for this post is pointing out how inspired by the original Star Trek the first episode of NetFlix's Black Mirror was for season 4.  If you have Netflix,  The episode USS Callister presented many a great parody of the original with new ideas from intervening 50 years of technology growth.

OT but Black Mirror is amazing

I guess I have to go watch black mirror.

Only one series?!!!!! That is asking a lot. My 2 favorites are DS9 and voyager. They really spread our knowledge of the star trek universe and introduce many new species, planets, beliefs and other things. they are great. Now I like the new one but, haven't been able to watch much of it to get into it yet!

Any Trek fans here?

If so, which is your favourite series and why?

I loved TOS when that's all there was; but TNS is far better, imho. Better acting, better scripts, better character development. Favorite episodes include: The Outcast (of course); Parallels; and Who Watches the Watchers, which I regard as the best episode of the series because of the questions it raises, the way it answers them, the purity of the character portrayals and the dynamics of the relationship between Picard and Nuria. The actress who plays Nuria is so good at it I just want to stand up and cheer. The script is just plain outstanding. There are multiple points where just thinking about the dialogue brings tears to my eyes.

I own both series on DVD. DSN had some great characters; but I always found it a little depressing. The animosity between Sisko and Picard, and Sisko's character in general, hung over everything like a dark cloud. Voyager was fun, but probably the weakest entry of the four. I never saw Enterprise.

Totally didn't expect things to go the way they have with Discovery and the Empire.

Yeah, it looks like this will be the main arc for the rest of the season.I have to say I like it a lot more than thefirst half with the whole war arc. The pilot was so badI just ignored it all fall, CBS had a free month deal over new years so I gave it a shot. who knows it could be like TNG, they started out terribly.

I remember my wife and I being all excited that there was going to be a new Star Trek series (ST - Next Gen) and when it finally aired were happy but had to wait until the characters developed.  Sadly, a lot of shows are on for a few episodes and characters never get the chance to develop.
