    Yeah, let's not even talk about how the Borg show up on Enterprise (the show, not the ship), which takes place before any of the other series, even though continuity suggests (and Q explicitly states) that the Federation didn't encounter the Borg until Q showed Picard what terrors the future had to hold for them.

    Got that? On TNG, the Borg were a future threat. Yet, they show up on Enterprise, which takes place centuries before.

    How does that work again?

    Timelines are apparently NOT the Star Trek writers' strong suit.

    I didn’t get to see Star Trek in color until they played reruns in the afternoon more than ten years later. We use to go to a Bar called Jim’s. They had happy hour and nachos and we watched many an afternoon. There was much rejoicing during those fight scenes!

    IIRC that particular one was explained... I think they were remnants of the Borg who went back in time to try to kill Zephra Cochrane in the film First Contact... were they frozen in the Antarctic or somesuch??

    Yeah, the Borg appearing on enterprise was a stretch, however, the story goes that they were frozen on Earth leftover from the events that took place in the TNG movie First Contact, so it can be argued that it was legit. The only thing Enterprise should be apologizing for is the awful theme song.
    Where as Discovery is horrible cuz it’s trying to appeal to a broader audience and I think when Trek tries to appeal to the masses, it suffers (Don’t get me started on JJ Abrams Trek movies).

    I met Sarek once. Mark Lenard, that is, who played Sarek and also the Romulan commander in "Balance Of Terror."

    Nope. That was Andreas Katsulas, who did in fact play Commander Tomalak in a couple of TNG episodes.

    Where were the spelling police when I needed them? Twice?!

    The O'Connel child in "And The Children Shall Lead". What a disturbing episode for a young me.

    Ceaser & me a couple days ago.

    For a short time in the 80's-90's I lived in Lancaster/Palmdale. I remember friends telling me about that Star Trek location driving thru. Wish I'd have gone there to look around.

    Unrelated other than the area I remember riding out to Quartz Hill to watch Steve Jones shoot the Freedom Fighter video.

    Lancaster, also home to Frank Zappa.

    I actually prefer Seth McFarlane's "The Orville" on Fox as a successor to the Star Trek TV shows.

    I also think that Galaxy Quest was an excellent Star Trek movie.

    It's worth checking out the comedy Trek novel, How Much For Just The Planet.
