Sir Patrick Stewart. He was knighted not too long ago, by the Queen, for his contribution to the arts.(So was Sir Elton John)

Loved it. Loved her. Great casting.
Under rated for sure! Glad someone else appreciated it.
Of course, once they brought 7 of 9 (Jeri Ryan) on board, Captain Janeway was somewhat overshadowed - but oh, how the ratings soared, lol!

Liked Star Wars but it's in a slightly different genre than the Star Trek series.
Loved all the other spin off series, but didn't particularly care for ST Enterprise with Scott Bakula.
The movies, the evolving series, the continuing timeline of Star Trek will always be a favorite for me.

Star Trek by Gene Rodenbary.

Star Wars....totally ripped off from DC comics. Jack Kirby's Eternals first told the story of Darksied's son.

It's a shame they couldn't do better on the Enterprise series, with Bakula! The producer seemed to HATE Star Trek. When it finally got better, they took it off the air...

Yes, indeed! In my post #21, I meant to express my likes were inclusive of all the series.

OMG!

7 of 9 was mighty fine!

What an addition to the program ... and rivaled the 'eye candy' of Julie Newmar in the original Star Trek and Catwoman on TV Batman.

yah, yah!

I couldn't 'hang' with the prequal with Bakula (though I liked him in Quantum Leap). It seemed the "Star Trek spirit" was lacking and they were just "going through the motions" of putting out something for the continuation of the Star Trek franchise.

Must put in a word for a very notable character, and Picard's nemesis and appearing in one or more of the other series sometimes .....

Yeah, their heart wasn't in it, and long-time Star Trek fans were very disappointed. Seems like the writers didn't even bother to watch the other series to stay in context... It could have been good, but wasn't.

How did you guys like that last Trek movie showing the Original Series folks as youngsters?

Loved it, a few characters took a little getting use to, but Karl Urban as Bones was great! Even at that young age he had that no BS intolerant aura, I enjoyed it.
Hope they make a second one soon.

He was a irritating nut and I just loved him. John de Lancie(?)was on Another World for a number of seasons way back when, he was quirky on there too. Perfect character to play Q. He sure drove Janeway & Picard crazy! lol

It's too bad but sometimes it takes a different person's touch to get it just so. Didn't happen for Enterprise though.

I've flamed out on the "franchise" somewhere. Didn't see that prequel, nor the last "Next Generation" one, nor the last one or 2 movies with the original cast.

And, I have only seen the first 3 Star Wars movies released beginning in late '70s. I enjoyed them.

I never could get into Star Trek. I realise the amount of content is massive with the various series and movies, but I have no idea which character is from which era, unless it's classic 60s Shatner and Nimoy. The concept I can grasp. It's just so hum drum when you put it beside those 6 blockbuster films from star wars.

There is a character in the Star Wars expanded universe(EU), that I find quite similar to Kirk. That being a "Grand Admiral Thrawn". A blue skinned, near human alien with red eyes, great hair and a very well cut clean white uniform. Sent by the Emperor to explore and conquer his own native area of space, "The Unknown Regions". He spends near on two decades in deep space building his own empire, before returning to the established empire after the Emperor's death to claim it for himself.

This guy killed more jedi than even Darth Vader before he even joined the empire, simply by being a brilliant military strategist! I know trekkies love hearing about slain jedi.

But I like the "to boldy go where no man has ever gone before" concept. I think a lot of rocket scientists and astrophysicists maybe trekkies.

ST2G. All the characters were well developed unique personalities. Favorites included DATA and Q. Both seeking answers to what made humans tick. Q I always felt he represented a deity figure. Forcing the other characters to look inside themselves for answers that a religion could not or would not give. DATA was always seeking emotions. Never aware that his curiosity about them made him more human than not.
