Star Trek

Does anyone watch any of the Star Trek shows? If so, which one/s do you watch? There's five Trek shows:
Star Trek (1966-69)
Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-94)
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993-99)
Star Trek: Voyager (1995-01)
Star Trek: Enterprise (2001-present)

I'm a major fan. I collect the DVD's, CD's (soundtracks), and like to discuss the show on a few message boards, but my fandom doesn't go much beyond that. Whut about you?

You're kidding! You knew the actors whom played the Borg twins on Voyager? Are you still in contact with them?

Any chance you could pass along a link to a message board for me? I'm one of three administrators at a message board, and most of the community are Star Trek fans, plus we have a sub-category with 7 or so forums dedicated to Trek. Any chance they'd be interrested in doing a "guest chat" some time or dropping in to say hello? No pressure, and if they say no, I'm cool with that, but I figured I'd ask all the same.

Yeah, I also enjoyed the Xindi/Expanse arc. It was a nice change from the story-of-the-week format. This year is going to be a series of 2 and 3-part episodes with the occasional stand-alone episode.

THeu should turn the enterprise into a giant weapons platform. And have better security. They need ninjas. With P90's. Like in MEtal Gear SOlid 2.

Well, the Enterprise is a ship of explorration, not a battle ship. It's also the best Earth has at the time, with the show being set in the 2150's. As for better security, that's why they brought in the MACO's for Season 3. Ninja's isn't a half-bad idea. Hmm... The Goa'uld have ninja guards in Stargate SG-1, why not Starfleet ninjas in Star Trek? As for P90's, that'd be primitive compared to their phase pistols which can stun, kill, and cut through solid objects like a blow torch.

I just watched that episode last night!

If you liked that one, I'd recommend seeing Star Trek: The Next Generation "Conspiracy."

Conspiracy... Not sure which one, but Conspiracy IS a Stargate episode. I've probably seen it. Havent watched TNG for a while. But I've seen 3/4 of the episodes.

TNG is my favorite, but the origanal cast films are so much better than the TNG ones. I cant remeber the number, but the one with the whales is my favorite.

Alpha, there's no SG-1 episode called "Conspiracy," I just checked. You might be thinking of "Foot Hold." As for TNG's "Conspiracy," it's a late Season 1 episode, one that I wished that they'd follow up on either later in the series or in one of the spin-off shows. Anywho, I figured you might enjoy the episode.

Does anyone plan on getting the shows on DVD? I do! I plan on getting the season sets for TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT when they come out next year. So far I only have two sets though. SG-1's cheaper, so I had to get that first.

I checked the all 163 SG-1 episode titles as well as all 10 SG:A episode titles. There is no episode called "Conspiracy."

I've been a Star Trek fan for a long time. And I like most of the Trek series. The one I like the least is Voyager....I just never really got into it. My favorites are the Original and Next Gen. And I like all of the movies. It really is too bad that Star Trek has kind of fallen to the way side recently. I'm hoping that they can revive it in the next 5 years or so. I think the big mistake that the Star Trek franchise has made is that all of the new Enterprise episodes are broadcast on UPN. UPN isn't received everywhere in the country like Fox or ABC are. If they got away from UPN they would have a larger fan base. But oh well I'm rambling.

The problem is that ABC, CBS, and NBC all would have cancelled the show before it ran one season. FOX probably would have cancelled the show after two seasons. If the show were to move to a new network, I think it'd have to go to the WB or SCIFI. The reason why they haven't considered moving the show to a new network is becuase UPN was originally owned by Paramount, so Voyager did pretty well in it's day. However, durring Enterprise, UPN has become a seperate entity of Paramount, both owned and operated by viacom. So, the show is kind'a "stuck" on UPN. What I'd like to see is UPN cancel the show, so the producers have an excuse to move it to the WB or SCIFI.

Ahh I see. That's a bit of info I didn't know. But I agree with you. I think UPN should cancel the show so that it can be moved to a network/channel that more people have access too. I happen to live in an area that I don't get UPN.
Fox used to have Next Gen. on it and I;m sure it did quite well. They showed all 7 seasons of Next Gen. and all 7 seasons of DS9. So maybe they would show Enterprise without it being cancelled....at least I'd hope.
