Well, as you can see from my avatar. I'm a Star Wars fan, but I grew up watching the original Star Trek on TV. Without Trek, odds are, there would have been no Star Wars. The main compelling strength that Star Trek always had was it's storytelling. The writers continually commented on society and human failings in a futuristic setting. Anyone who thinks that Star Trek isn't a good series has never actually taken the time to truly watch it and is simply judging it on their own misconceptions and prejudices and I would challenge them to actually take the time to sit through one or two episodes before they pass judgment on it. Star Trek is, arguably, one of the absolute best TV series ever created. Not too many shows can boast that they've been around for 50 years and counting. And that alone says everything that needs to be said. As for me, I'll always choose the original series over any of the sequels, but every one of the incarnations added something new and special to the mix.
