Just curious to see how many Star Trek fans are on here, and maybe get some discussion going.
What's your favorite series? Characters? How do you feel about the reboot, and are you looking forward to Into Darkness?
Eh, guess I'll post my own answers to those... My favorite series is Deep Space 9. Although some people argue [for some reason] that DS9 is "too dark", or a departure from the "spirit of Star Trek", I really liked the growing complexity of the plot and characters, and the fact that more often than not, the developments of an episode had future consequences (though, of course, there were still a bunch of "reset button" episodes). Characters: Garak, Odo, Weyoun, Spock, McCoy, Kira, Sisko, Picard, Geordi, Ensign Ro, the Doctor/EMH... I should probably stop there.
As someone who was raised by TOS Trekkies, it feels slightly odd seeing the series/characters transition from the sometimes-serious/thought-provoking-but-inescapably-campy 60s show to a kind of straightforward action/sci-fi franchise. Also a bit weird to think that, within the "nuTrek" continuity, Enterprise is the only series still canon. I think it's been handled well so far, though, and I'm looking forward to the new movie.
Sorry for the rambly post.
