I like Star Trek too but not the new Enterprise series. Too bad local free to air TV stations in my area isn't showing the classic shows...

Killer, I like them all.

I watched classic trek when I was growing up. Then when TNG came around, I thought it was so cheesy when it started. I hated it! I didn't watch it until the season was nearly done. Then I couldn't get enough of it. I still haven't seen all the episodes, but TNN here is showing them all IN A ROW right now! Every night at 8pm (it's on now). So I've been taping them so I'll have them all, and can sit and watch at my convenience. (They'll be doing the same with DS9 and Voyager in 2003 and 2004).

I thought DS9 was too dark, and had a tough time with it at first too. But it's became one of my favorites. I kind of almost like it better than TNG, because of the story line from the beginning to the end - it's all connected. It was cool how they did that.

Enterprise is ok. I think they all take some getting used to when they first get started. I really like Scott Bakula. I loved him in Quantum Leap...they show that from time to time and I like to catch that show.

I like TNG better. Some of the better plots include space battles rather than deplomacy. But actually I prefer watching Captain Picard in action. I guess I like TNG better than the other series. Probably I will like Voyager since I played computer game based on that series is like I just got to know the characters. Too bad I don't get to see any of these shows.

I've never watched star trek or star wars. The closest thing I have seen would be doctor who.

Dr Who is a good show! I watched it when I was a kiddie! Hmmm.... it was a kid show was it? I can remember they travels in a phone booth and battle the villain robots the Darleks.

But there were so many Dr Who I can't remember who's who which I watched...

Paramount needs to give the franchise a break for a while.

You can't take a break while you can still earn from it right? But I do agree they have to take a break because I find them ruining the show. The enterprise series is so un-star trek like that I don't watch it.

Big ST fan that I am, I honestly say I have to agree with this. Sometimes it seems they're running out of ideas.

The latest season of Enterprise is collecting proverbial dust on my TiVo. I wonder how many episodes are recycled plots from previous Trek generations.

There were a few good episodes, but I haven't seen many either. I've taped them and that's it. I haven't had time to watch.

Now why would you say that?

The only Sci-fi things I like are the comedy ones, i.e. The Hitch hikers guide to the Galaxy and Red Dwarf. I guess it's because I just can't take the serious ones seriously!
