Star Trek!

Recommended Posts

Who watched/watches any of the TV shows? Have any favourites?

I'm a Trekkie, and especially a fan of the Original Series :D

Just about a year to go until the next movie!

My brother loves Star Trek so I used to watch it with him when we were younger. I prefer the original series purely because they had Spock and Scottie XD And also I just found the originals more interesting.

Just though I'd add this. I love it when this comes on the radio ^-^

I had a dream about Data last night

I don't remember exactly what is was, but I think it was sexy.

I'm a semi casual fan I suppose.

I don't know too much about the series, but I know some things..I'd like to know more at some point.

I love how Gene Roddenberry represented the USS Enterprise as most of the world in the Original Series. Just one way the show was SO AHEAD OF ITS TIME in the 1960's.

I mean...

Europe/Asia: Chekov. This was still around the Cold War era... and yet he's Russian!

Asia: Sulu. One of the first positive roles played by an Asian American; usually Asians had to be the bad guys.

Europe: Scotty.

Africa: Uhura; meaning "freedom" in Swahili. And Kirk and Uhura shared the first inter-racial kiss scripted on US TV.

North America: Everyone else but Spock of course..

I feel like I could write a huge essay about The Original Series on how ahead of its time it was, all its positive messages, and its influences on technology, pop culture, and so much more.. *contented sigh*
