Just curious, any Trek fans around here? Would especially be curious if there were some younger ones too, since those don't seem to exist. Been bored and it's a favorite series of mine that I can't find anyone (or at least anyone who's not crazy) to ever really chat with about it. Figured on starting up a little conversation here if anyone is interested~

Captain, we’re under attack by an unknown vessel

 

Kirk: Our auto defense system destroyed attacker, probably Klingon.

Pickard: Shields up, hail enemy vessel, advise them we'll be forced to destroy them.

Janeway: Send them a message that violence is wrong and they should stop.  Have them tell us what did we do to them so we can compensate for our transgressions. 

 

I think Kirk is a clear winner for a coolest captain.

the original series is one of my favorite tv shows of all time. l like star trek 2 (wrath of khan) and 4 (voyage home[the whale one]). l've seen a couple episodes of the next generation but none of those movies or any other shows. I also like the new trilogy with chris pine alot. i'm still in high school so l guess i'd be classified as younger.

 TOS for sure because it's the first and Kirk is a [edited].

 

 But setting TOS aside.... DS9 is probably the best by far.

Star Trek. They are trying to make a come back, but they studio seems to have forgotten how to do it .

Then you got Star Wars which has totally gone off the rails.

Man, how about some love for Sisko? Personally the best captain around in my books. Like a nice hybrid between Picard and Kirk, and DS9 had some of the best writing and characters too. Mr. Garak all the way!

College student myself, so just seems rare to find anyone near my age that likes it. Mostly seems to be older generations that know it. Good to see there are some still. Have you ever checked out DS9 or Voyager yet? And you've gotta at least see an episode with Q from TNG!

I would say Picard by a slim margin.

 

But I would choose Spock over Riker any day.

I've enjoyed a fair many Star Trek movies and some seasons of the show.  Some movies are trash and some eras of the seasons are laughably bad.  It's hit and miss, but mostly enjoyable for me.

I'm actually a Film Production student, and I've been trying to make Star Trek my baby in a way, although not for film. Prefer television. As a matter of fact I'd been working on a script to try and pitch to CBS that continues the story and goes back to some of the better aspects, if anyone wouldn't mind spitballing back and forth with me at some point. Helps to have someone to bounce ideas with.

The story telling was best in the original series. It has gotten hip to mock the original Star Trek. However if you look beyond the limitations of the film technology of the time, the original Star Trek stories are very good.Must better then anything that comes afterwards

The last Jedi:

Stereotypical spaceguy alpha Male : We need a plan, you're going to get us all killed!

Admiral Purple hair: I have a plan and your patriarchal mansplaining is triggering me. Re-education for you!

(then, a few minutes, later she gets just about everybody killed)

TGN > everything

 

I recently started watching The Orville and I really like that. TOS feel with updated jokes

No, someday l plan on watching TNG and DS9. l did see the pilot to TNG and iirc Q is in it.
