What is your favorite Star Trek T.V. series?
I'm sure there are fans out there that have their favorite, I'd like to what your's are, and why.
Mine is Star Trek: Voyager, because it's gone as far as man has gone before....
It's hard to say for me because it can really depend on my mood. If I want more of a dramatic interpersonal drama, or some great war episodes, gotta go DS9. And the Xindi arc or the last season of Enterprise (when it finally became the series it should have been from the beginning) can be really compelling and fun. TOS is much more along the line of serious "what if?" speculative fiction and Voyager gets to have a lot of fun with the alien weirdness. But in general, I think TNG is probably the most well-rounded series so that may have to be what I call my "favorite" series. Which isn't surprising since it's also the most financially viable and widely popular series they've made.
I've seen all of them except the prequel with Scott Bakula. My favorite is Star Trek TNG, but just finished and loved Voyager. Am starting on the DS 9 series now, haven't really gotten fond of it yet--but I will.
Star Trek TOS, is the best. No captain is better than Kirk.
The bond Kirk, Spock and McCoy had was priceless to watch each week.
My favorite is Star Trek, TOS.
It wasn't just a show about the United Federation of Planets. It was a show that introduced controversial topics to get society to start thinking about it's unconscious biases.
Kirk and Uhura had the first televised Inter-racial kiss (Plato's Stepchildren). Chekhov was a very explicitly Russian and serving on the command bridge while the Cold war was at its peak in the nation. Racial biases were exposed by illustrating black/white skin color explicitly (Let that be your Last Battlefield). The Declaration of Independence was examined in terms of understanding meaning versus repeating words by rote (The Omega Glory) Many other issues were introduced in a fashion where they could be examined outside of the personal biases of the audience.
Gene Rodenberry wasn't just introducing a new Sci Fi universe, he was working to bring about social change as well. Plus, the interactions, humor and loyalty between Kirk, Spock and McCoy set the bar for every other series in the ST universe.
ds9. War. Dukat. Garak. Metatextualism. Surrealism. The ugly side of every race in the trek universe, frankly a more accurate reflection. Death, lies and the ethics of the ends and means. Some horrid eps, but some truly sublime ones -- the highest higs vastly outweiged the lowest lows. tos is easily the most consistant and visionary. Always a treat to watch, even if just for a laugh at the sensibilities of the late 60's/early 70's. Voyager was 50/50, with some very good arcs, some really really really stupid eps though (7 or 9 was an amazing character). Thg was good, a little pansy and preachy too often. Tos for movies. the reboot was an abomination.
I think it's a toss up between TOS and TNG. While TOS has the chemistry between Kirk, Spock, and McCoy; Spock's struggle in keeping his human half under control, and the manly way Kirk resolves issues; TNG provides a more sensitive, intellectual alternative to resolving issues as represented by Captain Picard, and an android who aspires to be human as represented by Commander Data. Also while TOS is still fun to watch as far as the cold war between Klingons and the Federation, TNG has embraced peace between the two powers, and thus gives us fascinating characters as Lt. Worf, who is all about duty and honor while being a fierce warrior. At any rate, both are a step above the rest.

Old Star Trek vs. New Star Trek?I honestly dig both. Star Trek Voyager and TNG was in my childhood as well as the original Star Wars trilogy. Don't too fond of the prequels. JJ Abram's Star Trek was near perfect...hmm....
