TOS for the best.  Discovery, un-Trek like as it is, I'd have to put reluctantly at #2.  On balance, the first 9 are better than the first nine of the Berman/Braga era Trek shows.

 

Probably TNG for the worst.

You're lucky Jay only condones 'fucker' when it's addressed at me.

 

 

I actually think the first thing Steef ever said to me on this board was "FUCK YOU!"

I think everyone should avoid anyone else a fucker for any reason, how about that?

 

 

In my defense, I did say "fu*ker".

 

It's not my fault that some people's minds go straight to the gutter.

TOS, TNG.

 

Discovery is slightly better than the first nine of TNG, but really not by much.

No need to even do a "Best last 9" episodes. DS9 by far. 

 

And on this issue there can be no debate!

 

That much is certain!

Hey Vanna, please tell us what letter goes there other than C in the English language? 

 

Fusker? Fuiker? Fulker? Furker?

 

What's a funker?  

 

Fuher?

Voyager is better than everything

 

Voyager is great when it sticks to the shows main concept. It's poor man's TNG when it doesn't.

 

Kate Mulgrew is great when she's given a decent script though.

She's a pretty good actress!  She gets a meaty role on Orange is the New Black and does very well with it, at least in the earlier seasons when they gave her stuff to do

All the Star Trek series have had their Captain be one of the best actors on the show.

 

Isaacs is strong on Discovery, its a pity the writing for his character hasn't really matched the acting.

Mulgrew was quite good as Janeway, and I enjoyed her performance. That said, she had to work with what the writers gave her, and unfortunately, as a Captian Janeway was pretty much the worst.

Her character was all over the place yes. 

Its quite weird they never found a consistent tone for her.

 

At the moment I would put her over Lorca though. No idea what the showrunners want me to think and feel about him.

 

But that might be part of the plan.

Steefs a Niner.

 

Yes I am!

 

We're the Intellectual snobs of the Star Trek fandom, since we know its the best show, even though most Trekkies don't care for it or know that much about it.
