I am a Trekkie and not ashamed to admit it. “Of course” I am in favor of Next Gen = a fan of the bast captain the galaxy has ever seen = Jean-Luc Picard 😉
I have never seen the last season of Deep Space 9 and I admit that I never watched more than the first Season of Voyager. A couple of years ago I watched the first three seasons of Enterprise but somehow never came around to watching the fourth and last season. That was corrected now by all four seasons of Enterprise being available on hulu Japan. I now finally watched the fourth season and hmmmmm…
Some episodes were fun (though it was a stupid episode in Enterprise, I just have to watch one of my favorite Original Star Trek episodes again – Mirror Mirror, and being about it, I gotta watch the Tribbles episode again too these days. Enterprise and the Original Star Trek are the only ST related series available on hulu here). Especially the last Enterprise episode was pretty much bogus though… the sudden death of Trip caused me to quote from one of my favorite movies of all time: Galaxy Quest. Gwen DeMarco: This episode was badly written! (when she and Jason Nesmith encounter the chompers on the way to the Omega 13).
Nevertheless I managed to watch through 4 seasons of Enterprise until the bitter end, in contrast to Deep Space 9 and Voyager.
There will be another Star Trek movie coming out some time in 2012 it seems with Zachary Quinto as Spock (who is a damn well worthy Spock) and I’m looking forward to it but hey… What about a new Star Trek series??? I wouldn’t mind one at all = I would be watching it. Why not go a little bit more into the future and have something after Next Gen? I kinda miss Klingons and Romulans and even the Borg! Some more Qs would be nice too and and and.
But alas… as far as I know there are no plans for a new Star Trek TV series, are there? Sniff…
Well, at least I can explore now something that I have never come around to yet. Unbelievable as it may sound, I have never watched Doctor Who. As long as I still lived in Germany I cannot remember Doctor Who ever having played on German TV. But! There is relief around the corner. Hulu Japan has recently added the first season of the (starting in 2005) Doctor Who series to its program and actually I just watched the first episode and must say it looks promising!
Nevertheless, maybe I should write the Star Trek fanclub and ask them to collect signatures begging for a new ST series! 😉
Live long and prosper fellow geeks.
