Do you love STAR TREK? I confess I do!

.

Every night around 1.a.m ( Europian time) I am not available for anybody. I do not answer on Hub comments, I do not read e-mails, and I do not communicate neither with my boyfriend nor with our cats. At that time I am travelling around the universe with Voyager crew. Do not try to contact me at that time- I am in Delta Quadrant.

Of course we watch now repetition of serial, because some people here love Star Trek so much that they always like to watch it again. Star Trek adventures became part of our lives.

My boyfriend used to watch the part of serial with captain Picard incharged for Crew of Voyager, he never accepted neither Deep Space Nine, neither often keeps me company while I fly with captain Janeway and Seven of Nine (and dream about Chakotay). Female captain and so many powefull women on spaceship are certainly a little bit too much for him to watch every day. But he learned the lesson, when Star Trek beginns, the rest of the world for me does not exist. If he tries to ask me something, the best he can get from me is angry reaction of one Klingon women. In room has to be silence. While I am in deep space.

Am I addicted to this serial? I confess I am. I have always been, from the time of captain Kirk, but the Voyager with captain Janeway (and Chakotay, he, he) is certainly the most interesting one. There is entertaining mixture of various positive intentions like:

  • creating peace in universe,
  • adventure,
  • compassion,
  • favorizing the best human qualities,
  • deep resepect for all forms of life
  • idea about non-interfering with somebody else´s culture and development is certainly very wise one and should be performed much more in our societies.

At the same time there are many of quantum mechanics theories presented as: time travel, temporal anomalies, alternative timelines, warp drive (faster then speed of light), teleportation, what is great because it allows people to easier accept the quantum physics hypothesis while watching them as normal part of life in their favorite serial.

At the same time there is also nanotechnology, which we human already use in our real world. As well as Borg in Star Trek. Hm. It makes me wander about nanotechology....

Some women like soap operas, I like to entertain myself with ideas of space travelling and SF.

Majority of species which Star Trek crew discoveres in the Universe - are humanoids . Through the serial, authors actually described many possible humans attributes and cultural differences which exist - here on Earth and our real world. For the purpose of scenario they are shown as different speices somewhere in Universe, but all serial is actually inspired by our various existing human qualities and cultural differences we can meet in reality, or in our human past...or future.

The main idea of serial is to teach us that we need to start to think more about depth of our influence on other forms of life here on this planet and even more far from Earth... We can be proud about ourselves and accepted from others only if we develop as non-invasive beings ...

First Star Trek Crew

First Star Trek

Captain Kirk was good looking, adventorous womenizer...don`t you think? At that time when serial was filmed, people needed completely different type of space - hero... It is good that human ideals are in constant process of development and transformation.

,

.

Next Generation was certainly quantum leap in new conscioussness comparing to the first part of Star Trek. Many new speaces discoverd, much more peaceful solutions to the problems, much deeper analysis of various characters and new cultures met in space. Hm, still too much wars....

We somehow think that wars are normal part of life in universe, is it really so?

.

,

Deep Space Nine

Deep Space Nine

.

At the beginning I very hardly accepted Deep Space Nine. But finally when I got used to it - it became very interesting to me.

The most important issue I was thinking of while watching it - where can lead fanatic acceptance of any religion, spiritual path, code or belief when we do not use common sense.

By my opinion this was the most valuable topic of this part of serial...

.

Star Trek Voyager

Voyager Crew

 .

Voyager crew is certainly my favorite one up till now.

In Delta quadrant of human consciousness can lead us even bigger compassion and self-transformation in order to survive. Amazing women as Janeway, B`Ellana, Seven, Kes brilliantly co-operate with crew and do their best to bring Voyager home.

The most valuable message is that danger and conflict primarily resides  in realms of human fears, fears create the enemies as well as lack of knowledge.

Humans need to recognize that in order to survive on Earth. According to the progress of consciousness Star Trek crews made during 30 years of emitting, we will one day succeed in that aim and learn the lessons which will help us to move forward...

...but, there is still a lot of lessons in front of us...

Al this characters and species are part of our human consciousness

As a kid, whenever the original Star Trek episode would come on, I knew then that it was time to go to bed, and so because to this (I think) I never really got into it.

I will say however, that I really enjoyed the new Star Trek movie. I'm sure that it will make a lot of fans for the new generation. By the way, what did you think of it?

We have every now and on repetitions of Star Trek, obviously people love it.

Thanks for the visit and comment....

I looooOve Star Trek and different variations of the theme. Phil and I watch it together, its the only time he watches TV as he rarely waches other showsk, and gives us a break from working on the business via the computer. We both enjoy the messages of universality and such which you mentioned. We both think the writers have to an awareness to be able to write on these subjects. Sometimes we are struck by how timely and evolved some of the insights are while watching the show.

Thank, nextofjupiter, well I also think that space travelling (faster then speed of light) is only possible with use of mind-power. And this is missing link we still did not start to use.

Thanks for your comment and visit.

I loved all the Star Treks, although "The Next Generation" closely followed by "Voyager" were my favourites. I actually used to have three ferrets named after Star Trek characters "Worf" Dax" and "Kes".

I agree, Mary, they really surprise me with so many insights, so I must admitt I always learn something new while watching them.

I am so glad that you are their Fan as well.

Hugs.

Tatjana-Mihaela, I loved the original Star Trek best, but like Dohn121, I also enjoyed the most recent movie, which is like a prequel to the old series. Did you get a chance to see it?

Do you like Babylon5?


Tatjana-Mihaela profile image

Tatjana-Mihaela 6 years ago from Zadar, CROATIA Author

I am not sure would I like to watch it at all after reading synopsis, but if all of you say that is great, I will do it. Here movies come in cinemas few days after they start to play in USA.

I liked Babylon 5, but because of some reasons (?) it never became so popular here like Star Trek... I watched only part of serial and I am sorry I missed a lot.

Mira Furlan, one of the stars of Babylon Five, came from your part of the world... Did politics have something to do with its unpopularity?


mistyhorizon2003 profile image

mistyhorizon2003 6 years ago from Guernsey (Channel Islands)

I don't like it when they try to go back in time with current films or series of Star Trek, I didn't like the series "Enterprise" for this reason, as it looked more modern than the original Star Trek with Captain Kirk, but was supposed to be set prior to that era.

I think I am with you on the Chakotay opinion Tatjana, either that or "Reiker", (Captain Picard's number 1)


Tatjana-Mihaela profile image

Tatjana-Mihaela 6 years ago from Zadar, CROATIA Author

No, Aya, politics were not involved in lack of popularity of Babylon 5. Serial was on TV too late at night...on TV station which was also not so popular at that time...

Just coincidence.

They never repeted it, if they did, in right time of evening, it would be hit.

Mira Furlan is great actress.


Tatjana-Mihaela profile image

Tatjana-Mihaela 6 years ago from Zadar, CROATIA Author

I dislike the same things as you, Cindy.

BTW, we can share Chakotay, no problem, Reiker is only yours, haha.

I guess I can settle for Reiker and let you have Chakotay :)

An answer to your title..........a big hearty YES! Love Star Trec in all its incarnations. Our world and how we interact with one another...good lessons could be learned from absorbing the values of Star Trec and those characters.

You certainly inserted a bunch of great pictures in this hub. Great job!

Tatjana - you are not paying attention! All the humanoids from other planets don't speak English, but our friends on the Enterprise used some sort of translating devise ( I forgot what it's called )! All can be explained if you find yourself a real Trekkie.

Thanks, Dolores, this explains a lot. Now I feel much better when I know that English is not necessary language for all other species to learn it, he, he... I certainly did miss that. Will immediately remove that sentence from my Hub.

Thanks.

Yes, I love Star Trek! I think I watched all the Captain Kirk episodes. However I must confess that I have not followed much the later versions.

Thanks for the great hub!

Tatjana - I love your take in this hub and the parallels you draw between Star Trek and life! Like Jill, I've watched most of the old Captain Kirk ones - a few of the new one. The next time, I'm going to pay more attention and see if I can learn some lessons from it too! Lovely hub, Tatjana, thanks!

I was a fan of Star Trek from the very beginning to the present. Las Vegas had an exhibit in one of their hotels called "The Star Trek Experience" with film clips, a Star Trek timeline, and two interactive "rides"--one featuring the Next Generation crew, and one with the Voyager cast. The exhibit is gone now, but I visited it several times while it was there.

It is difficult for me to even say which series I liked best, as each were my favorite at some point or other. It took me longer to like Deep Space Nine than any other series, but in the end I simply loved it. The other shows had me hooked from the beginning.

We have to be related some how, some where. Star trek too?

I watched every Star Trek episode ever done at least a dozen times each. After a while, they all got to be almost family. I even went to a Star Trek convention at the Americana Hotel in New York and got to meet Capt'n Kirk and a few others. I walked around like an idiot with "antenna's' on my head all day and even bought a 40 dollar phaser and an official Star Trek Academy manual.

It's sad they all had to grow old. Even Capt'n Kirk put on about 80 pounds. He does a lot of TV commercials now. But, out with the old, and in with the new is the way it works I suppose. If it wasn't for that we wouldn't have Data, Warf, and Capt'n Piccard either.

Seeatya...

I liked the original star trek more than some of the later series rehashed stories and the recent star trek movie was excellent as it gave great respect for the originals, except it wiped the slate clean with the time travel plot, so in essence what the star trek crew went through in the original series and the films may not necessarily have happened, because of the altered time reality.

Star trek will always leave good memories of watching the re-runs on tv as it was pure science fiction and fantasy stuff, the best stuff to watch now as it's featured heavily on the box now more than ever!

Wonderful hubpage and pics!

Absolutely Love Star Trek! I believe they took the spin offs a little far thus diluting it somewhat.The newest movie however took a spin with the original characters that may give us at least a couple more exciting adventures with the new(old)crew,and was an amazingly visual stimulus.

Nice hub. I was alot like your boyfriend and didn't like Voyager at first. After watching it for a while, it is now my favorite of all the shows. I also like Enterprise on SCIFi channel (the prequal) to the original, a lot.

I too confess that I am a Star Trek addict, especially the original series. I agree that the next best one was Voyager. Of all the Star Fleet Captains from all of the series, only Kirk had more cajones than Janeway.
