    The first season was a bit slow as they got their feet under them, but it turned out to be my favorite ST series.

    The correct spelling is too preachy, not to preachy. Too, to, and two are three different words that sound the same, are spelled differently, and have different meanings.
    Just like their, they're and there, and your and you're.

    Well let’s all ignore the inappropriate grammar lesson that seems to have wandered in to this thread!

    Enterprise is certainly not my favourite Trek but it’s not dreadful (except for that theme song!). The first season is probably the weakest — season three, where they have a season-long story to follow, is the best.

    Space shows. It’s funny how being far from “home”, the whole space bit or even being on a ship doesn’t bother them. What does always confuse and frustrate them is that the aliens just won’t get along with them. Always wanting to destroy them, use up their resources or make them accept terms. All they want to do is get along and learn new things.

    I didn’t finish it. It had some moments but just didn’t grab me. Also I couldn’t hear the opening song even one more time.

    Like others have said, like most Trek it starts a little hit-or-miss but improves with time. My favorite stretch is from the last episode of season 2 through the second episode of season 4. That's all one big story arc that's mostly self-contained. Watching what comes before provides a little context but it's not necessary.

    Also, the NX-01 is one of my favorite Starfleet designs.

    DS9 is definitely the best series, taken as a whole. May also be my favorite crew, individually and as a whole.

    And Garak and Dukat are always a delight to watch.

    I did not like DS9 due to the long drawn out war. That should have been kept in book form.
    Multi creatures and adventures is what I liked about the Kirk era. Each episode
    should be succinct from any other. Even the Klingon sisters, borg and Q get
    boring after a repeat.

    Big (non sci fi) drama too is a tad of a let down just like my dislike of
    (time travel episodes, dimensional twins,etc) lol

    imho

    He's a time traveler! In the 23rd century there's just a single spelling, "to".

    Thank you, time traveler!

    I certainly am a fan of the show...The Plots seem simpler, yet are much more complex than ST oR TNG. The gals on the show are certainly worth watching. Capt Archer is a man, not some near Godlike entity..show is always worth watching IF you enjoy the premise of the 1st interstellar ship and crew.

    DS9 was more of a travesty than anything else, but Maj Kira was hot

    The shows in my order of preference:

    - Enterprise
    - Voyager
    - TNG
    - Original

    Enterprise is my favorite one, I think. I just recommend you skip the last two episodes.

    I strongly second this recommendation. This is one of the most riveting sci-fi series I’ve had the pleasure to watch. I’m laughing my way through the original Star Trek right now, enjoying the cheesy effects. It has value but my enjoyment is fueled more by nostalgia than the quality of of the scripts and production.

    This is primarily what I enjoyed most about this, my favorite iteration of Star Trek. It was close enough to our time (just over 100 years from now) that the characters were recognizably human and not some super evolved society of superior beings. I could relate to and understand Archer and Trip, they were like my military buddies.

    Wow thanks for that, I'm so glad that you came along and fixed that for me. So beside you being a grammar N_zi, and an overbearing ass what do you actually think of the show?
