I have enjoyed all the Star Treks but all of you have an order list. I find that it took each show at least a couple of years to hit their mark and get out of the how we can redo shows from the other series pattern and develop their own style and pacing. I think DS9 is often oven looked due to it darker nature. I feel that in the last 3 seasons, DS9 had some very good shows. That said, I would point you to voyager's Sacred Ground as an example of what science fiction can be. While the episode was nothing out of the ordinary, the premise of the episode was thought provoking.Originally posted by RellingTwin
Amy..have fun at WDW!
Eric., I really like "Enterprise", but then I really liked "Voyager" also. I did not care for Deep Space Nine."Enterprise" has a really great theme song. I'd be interested to know if it is translated into German or if they change it altogether.It's called "Faith of the Heart".
Eric, when are you going to get your sister on a cruise?
To really enjoy Enterprise one must know the Star Trek saga. The story line will bring you back about one hundred years before Captain Kirk. I think it tries to explain why some directives and procedures are in place.Originally posted by Viking
And tomorrow the pilot-movie of "Enterprise" will have its premiere in Germany. 17 months after the US-start ... I' didn't really like the Next Generation, Voyager and DS9, but I hope Enterprise will be better.
I think one of the biggest shames of Enterprise is, that right out of the gate they are playing around with time travel. While this allows for some interesting ways around things, e.g. Voyager's doctor out of the sickbay using 26th cent. technology, time travel its self has the fundamental problem that if matter can not be created or destroy and can only change states, then when something moves to a different time period, some matter or energy from that time period would have to move the travelers time period. This issue was addressed in Quantum Leap by having the person Sam leaped into go to the Waiting Room. Moving the amount of matter or energy to displace one individual in time is interesting but think of what would have to move if you transfer a ship or ships as in First Contact! Think of the call to the Star Fleet Command helpdesk as an individuals 22nd century computer is replaced by matter for another time period.!!Originally posted by Viking
I just watched Enterprise and I liked it very much. Especially the First Officer from Vulcan is a major improvement
According to my sources it plays exactly 113 years before StarTrek. Funny thing is, in Germany the original StarTrek-series was called "Raumschiff Enterprise" (Raumschiff=Spaceship), so for us it is even more back to the roots.
