    Yeah, I mean I respect Star Trek, it's sci-fi after all. But it's not for me. I find anytime I watch it I just get bored.

    It's like, "Oh man life is so perfect, let's go explore!" I might be completely wrong, it's just it's not for me. I'd rather the notion of the force and being a bad ass monk with a glow stick.

    The first series were good but not great. The later series I try to get into, but there is so much wrong with them. In ST:TNG the character with the most personality is Data the android. :rolli:

    Well, in every series, I always empathize with the doctors (except TNG, where I'd rather see both Crusher's die in the most gory and hideous way)...

    TOS -> Kirk/McCoy
    TNG -> Picard (and sometimes Q)
    DS9 -> Bashir/Garak
    VOY -> Holographic doctor
    ENT -> Phlox

    guess that's a yes then....

    Yea roll playing also seems a bit NT, but I've never indluged in either.

    I do read an awful lot, and actually I have been wondering if reading is just living life vacariously, should we all ditch the paper and go get lives?????

    I'm not a fan of Sci Fi in general, but I do love the new Battlestar Galactica.

    I love BSG too, but it's what I'd call "light SciFi". It's really a drama that just happens to have a fantastic/futuristic setting.

    The thread title and poll questions are not synonymous. Are you sure you're not NF, tinkerbell? teehee.

    I like Star Trek - TOS. After that, I lost interest. I like Star Wars too. I'm also a defender of <strike>134340</strike> Pluto.

    TOS is properly seen as Kirk/McCoy/Spock.

    Spock is the left brain.
    Mc Coy is the right brain.
    Kirk is the balance between.

    This is the main reason it is so compelling and why morality themes and universal questions played out so well.

    It is also the tension between feeling loyalty and duty to a cause and trying to balance it with individuality and personal conscience.

    Are you talking about that dwarf planet and plutoid crap? Sometimes you wonder what kind of gong show is happening over at the IAU...

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
