Meme me up, Scotty


1. List the Star Trek Series that you have seen. Indicate if all the episodes or some of them.

Star Trek TOS: All episodes many times, own DVDs
Star Trek the Cartoon: All episodes. Got them on home-made video tape, but two are missing. I need to get the DVDs.
Star Trek the Next Generation: All many times, own DVDs
Star Trek Deep Space Nine: All many times, own DVDs
Star Trek Voyager: All many times, own DVDs
Star Trek Enterprise: Watched through half of season 2 before I gave up.

2. Name your favorite episodes of each series or just what you can remember?

ST TOS: Tomorrow is Yesterday, The Devil in the Dark, Amok Time, For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky, Wink of an Eye, All Our Yesterdays
ST TAS: The one where Spock goes back to his own childhood?
ST TNG: The Emissary, Reunion, First Contact, Timescape
ST DS9: The Visitor, Little Green Men, Rapture, In the Pale Moonlight
ST V: Twisted, Future's End I&II, Blood Fever, Timeless, Bride of Chaotica!, Blink of an Eye
ST E: ??

3. Name the movies you have seen:

All, but the last couple Next Gen ones I only saw once.

4. Favorite Characters:

ST TOS: Spock
ST TAS: Spock
ST TNG: Data, Worf/K'ehleyr (but less Worf by himself)
ST DS9: Sisko
ST V: Torres
ST E: Could never connect with any of the characters.

5. Favorite Character in the new movie?

Spock

6. Favorite Movie?

ST: First Contact

7. Favorite writing team?

Don't know enough about them.

8. Favorite Trek Spoof?

Don't remember most of them now, but I do recall a great many of them showed a big ignorance of what the show was actually about.

9. Favorite Villain?

The Borg up until the introduction of the Borg queen. The Klingons were better when they were uneasy allies (too two-dimensional before then), the Romulans were always fairly well done, I think, even in the original series. The Vidians were creep factor #1, in a good way.

10. Least Favorite film?

ST: The Final Frontier

11. Most underrated film?

Someone at work last week was mocking the Voyage Home. I loved that one.

12. Written anything on it, fanfic, anything?

I started some episode-by-episode "meta", realized I was biting off more than I could chew, and stopped. I have a tag for my trek posts, though:

13. What got you into Trek?

That goes too far back into the wombs of time to remember. I was too young to watch the show when it first aired, but I watched it in early '70's syndication and it really was the first show I was a "fan" of.

14. Have you met anyone who wrote or performed in Trek.

Brent Spiner, at a restaurant in SF. My mom met Deforest Kelley at a wedding.

15. Favorite Series?

Deep Space Nine.

16. Star Trek or Star Wars or BSG?

I gave up on BSG (the new series) in season 2. And no one can force me to choose between ST and SW, they are two very different beasts.

18. What’s your favorite of the novelizations

I originally dove into the novelizations before they started making Next Gen and the movies, in order to have more Trek. I stopped when I realized they could be contradicted by the movies and Next Gen. I really wanted more canon, and they weren't canon.

Me being me, I liked "Yesterday's Son" where it turns out Spock produced a son during the OS episode "All Our Yesterdays" and the son comes forward in time and there is lots of angsty parent-child stuff. Also loved "Spock's World."

I had the cartoon series on my Amazon wlist forever without buying them (for lack of money). Right now, I'm still giving Amazon the evil eye, and trying to get the movie collection on DVD by other means.

But yeah, the cartoon series! Me wants!

I've never been ripped off by ebay sellers, but I do find their "shipping fees" astounding at times.

I've been ripped a lot by dvd sellers and they're the only ones though. I get knock offs, ones that don't play, ones that are missing things. Unless i can't get it any other way....

and like on the big Avatar splurge they were only 10$ cheaper and when they add that postage you mentioned they were far more

I've never watched Enterprise and don't even consider it canon.

I love The Voyage Home!

A Klingon bird of prey lands in Golden Gate Park, then plants itself between ev0l whalers and two innocent ocean!kittehs. What's better than that?!1!



The biggest problem with Enterprise is fans build up huge expectations for what came before the time of the show they know, and no prequel can live up to that. The new movie found a way around it, but by trying not to be a true prequel.
