Star Trek is timeless; eternal.

@OmSigDAVID,
The 1960's Star Trek was the best in my opinion, a couple of my favourite all-time classic episodes were "City on the Edge of Forever",where they have to let Joan Collins die, and "Where no Man has gone before", where Gary Lockwood is zapped by radiation that gives him supernatural powers.

AGREED.
I attended the 5 annual Star Trek Conventions
at 42nd St. & Lexington Ave. Mindblowing

By overwhelming consensus, that one,
written by Harlan Ellison, was the favorite of all time.

Yes. I liked that one too; among the best.

Another favorite of mine, was OMEGA GLORY
I played with it subsequently: I actively supported the successful campaign
of a candidate to un-seat the incumbent Democrat governor of New York.
At our Republican victory party, the day after the election,
in a quiet ambiance, I FULLY raised my voice and intoned:
"WHAT ONCE WAS OURS, IS OURS ONCE AGAIN!
IT SHALL NOT BE TAKEN FROM US."

From across the room, in recognition, a fellow called out:
"Omega Glory!"
We remained in office for 12 years,
after which I retired from the office that I was awarded.

I simply went to Youtube and typed the titles into the search box.
And yes, whenever established scifi authors like Ellison wrote the occasional episodes, their quality shines through..Smile

Incidentally, although 60's ST was the best, I also liked ST New Generation but not quite as much because it all seemed too squeaky-clean with not enough action.
Even Patrick Stewart said he sometimes felt like an intergalactic social worker and that the show took itself too seriously.

As for all the later ST spinoff series, I never did like them, they were all pretty boring..

@Romeo Fabulini,
I always liked DS9. Edgier, darker, less self righteous.

I just couldn't get into the spinoffs for exactly the same reason I stopped watching Stargate; they all seem to be produced to the same dreary format, same lighting, same camera angles, same predictable script format (yawn).
Even Under the Dome never lived up to its early promise despite being written by Stephen King, it degenerated into a ludicrous soap.
As for Dr Who, I gave up on it years because it's degenerated into a "kids show for adults" made worse by a succession of overgrown schoolboy nancy-boy actors in the part.
The sooner they ditch it and produce a proper scifi series in the mould of Blakes Seven, the better..Smile

@Romeo Fabulini,
Stephen King did a good job in his Carrie movie
with Sissy Spacek, in 1976. I bought that movie.

Q is basically out for his own amusement and is very capricious. You can't really form a stable alliance with him because he doesn't behave in a stable way. Also, it's hard to form an alliance with someone while he's telling you how inferior you are.
