This was the first star trek ever released, it was extraordinary when it was released. you can easily tell this was made in the 1960's (1966 to be exact), from the sounds not matching any of the effects to the 3 foot star ship model held on fishing line, you can see that any sort of special effect was in it's infancy, and that any and all cgi simply didn't exist. [B][I]Star Trek: The Next Generation[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.gamutofgeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/featuredimage.jpg[/IMG] This was the second incarnation to be released, and personally, I think of it as the best. Just like the first one, it was created by gene roddenberry, Who sadly passed away during this series in 1991 (4 years after it first aired in 1987). This series had it's fair share of connections to the original series. Towards the end of the third season the show's whole theme somewhat shifted a little. Prior to the third season finale the show was quite episodic, where plot lines didn't really transfer over, however after the showing of the season 3 finale the show shifted to a more streamlined plot and included a lot more drama. Season 1 is the worst season in the series. I wouldn't bother buying those blurays and just skip to Season 2 [IMG]http://www.treknews.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/star-trek-tng-season-1-blu-ray.jpg[/IMG] [B][I]Star Trek: Deep Space Nine[/I][/B] [IMG]http://gyazo.com/f22088ce77753a70a7292de7ca0257a4.png[/IMG] This was the third incarnation of star trek, first debuting in 1993 (during star trek: The next generation), and consequently had many crossovers, such as the characters from The next generation meeting up with characters in Deep space nine. It was the first to not be created by gene roddenberry, but instead created by Rick berman and michael piller. This series wasn't based on a star ship, but instead based on a starbase. Unline star trek: The original series, and Star trek: the next generation, Deep space nine had long story arcs over multiple episodes, and very complex character development, such as characters having more inter-personal conflicts, something that gene roddenberry forbid. [B][I]Star Trek: Voyager [/I][/B] [IMG]http://img187.imageshack.us/img187/9099/voyagerbannerbymigueldou3.jpg[/IMG] This was the fourth incarnation of star trek, first debuting in 1995 (during the airing of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) It was created by Rick Berman, Michael Piller, and Jeri Taylor. It was the first Star Trek series to feature a Female Captain as well. This series has more of a familial crew, and has much more engaging action sequences and light humor. The whole series has one big plotline, but each episode tends to have it's own little story with parts that carry over in to the next episode. This is based on the Voyager starship Trying to find an enemy vessel, when suddenly both voyager and the enemy vessel are forced in to the delta quadrant over 70,000 lightyears away, by a powerful being named the caretaker. During the transit many of the crew died, and now the enemy vessel and Voyager have to work together on a 70,000 lightyear trek back home, which would take approximately 70 years. [B][I]Star Trek: Enterprise[/I][/B] [IMG]http://guardian-of-forever.scifi-online.org/images/ENTtop.jpg[/IMG] This series first debuted in 2001, and was created by Rick Berman and Brannon Braga. Enterprise is a prequel to Star Trek: The Original Series. A lesser show I think, but nevertheless is surprising to watch. [B][I][U]Films [/U][/I][/B] [B][I]Star Trek: The Motion Picture[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155967.jpg[/IMG] [I]Admiral James T. Kirk is called upon to take command of the USS Enterprise for the first time since the television series ended. A strange alien craft is heading towards Earth, destroying everything in its path. The only starship in range is the Enterprise--after undergoing a major overhaul in drydock. Kirk rounds up the rest of his old crew, and acquires a few new members, and sets off to intercept the alien spacecraft. [/I] [B][I]Star Trek : The Wrath of Khan[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155969.jpg[/IMG] [I]t is the 23rd century. The Federation starship USS Enterprise is on routine training maneuvers, and Admiral James T. Kirk seems resigned to the fact that this may well be the last space mission of his career. But Khan Noonien Singh is back. Aided by his exiled band of genetic supermen, Khan--infamous conqueror from late 20th century Earth--has raided Space Station Regula One, stolen a top secret device called Project Genesis, wrested control of another Federation starship, and now schemes to set a most deadly trap for his old enemy Kirk... with the threat of a universal Armageddon! [/I] [B][I]Star Trek: The Search for Spock[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155970.jpg[/IMG] [I]Picking up exactly where Star Trek II left off, the Enterprise and crew are returning to port for some essential repairs to their ship. When they arrive, they are shocked to discover the Enterprise is to be scrapped. When Dr. McCoy starts acting strangely, Kirk is forced to steal his old ship back and fly across space to a lonely planet to save a friend.[/I] [B][I]Star Trek: The Voyage Home[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155971.jpg[/IMG] [I]A space probe appears over 23rd century Earth, emanating strange sounds towards the planet, and apparently waiting for something. As time goes on, the probe starts to cause major storms on Earth and threaten its destruction. James T. Kirk and crew are called upon once again to save mankind. They discover the strange sound is actually the call of the humpback whale - which has been hunted to extinction. They have only one choice - to attempt to time travel back into the 20th century, locate a whale, and bring it back to 23rd century Earth to reply to the probe.[/I] [B][I]Star Trek: The Final Frontier[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155972.jpg[/IMG] [I]The crew of the Federation starship USS Enterprise is called to Nimbus III, the Planet of Intergalactic Peace. They are to negotiate in a case of kidnapping only to find out that the kidnapper is a relative of Spock. This man is possessed by his life long search for the planet Sha-Ka-Ree which is supposed to be the source of all life. Together, they begin to search for this mysterious planet.[/I] [B][I]Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155973.jpg[/IMG] [I]The Enterprise leads a battle for peace and a lunar cataclysm bring the Klingons to their knees. After seventy years of war, the Federation and the Klingon Empire prepare for a peace summit. Ironically, it is Captain James T. Kirk who is the first emissary to broker that peace. But the prospect of intergalactic glasnost with sworn enemies is an alarming one. When a Klingon ship is attacked and the Enterprise is held accountable, the dogs are war are unleashed again, as both worlds brace for what may be their final, deadly encounter. [/I] [B][I]The Best of Both Worlds[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155974.jpg[/IMG] [I]The Enterprise finds that an entire Federation colony has been destroyed and Admiral Hanson advises Captain Picard that it appears to be the work of the Borg. The Admiral assigns Lt. Comander Shelby, their expert on the Borg, to the Enterprise. They quickly track down the large cube-like Borg spacecraft but find they have few weapons they can use against it. . When Captain Picard is kidnapped, she leads an away team onto the Borg ship to rescue him. What they find is that Picard has himself been transformed into a Borg 'Locutus'. Now it's up to Riker and the Enterprise to rescue Picard and stop the Borg, before Picard's mind and memory leads them to Earth.[/I] [B][I]Star Trek Generations[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155975.jpg[/IMG] [I]It is the late 23rd century. Retired Starfleet officers James T. Kirk, Montgomery Scott and Pavel Chekov are guests of honor aboard the newly-christened Enterprise-B. However, a test run takes an unexpected turn when the starship encounters two vessels trapped inside the Nexus, a mysterious energy ribbon. During a perilous rescue attempt, Kirk is swept out into space. Seventy-eight years later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-D rescue an El-Aurian named Tolian Soran. Unbeknownst to Picard, Soran harbors a deadly plan that includes the destruction of the Enterprise and millions of lives. Now Picard's only hope for the future rests within the Nexus... and a legendary captain from the past.[/I] [B][I]Star Trek: First Contact[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155976.jpg[/IMG] [I]The Borg have returned, in another attempt to conquer Earth. Disregarding orders, Captain Picard and the new Enterprise-E rush to save the Federation homeworld, only to get sucked back in time with the Borg as they attempt to interfere with the course of humankind's evolution into a peaceful, unified race. If Zefram Cochrane (inventor of warp drive) does not make his flight (in the mid-21st century), a routine Vulcan mapping mission would not detect the warp signature, and first contact would not be made. The Borg go back in time to destroy his ship, once an American nuclear missile left over from World War III[/I] [B][I]Star Trek: Insurrection[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155977.jpg[/IMG] [I]When an alien race--and forces within Starfleet--attempt to take over a planet that has "magical" properties, it falls upon Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-E to defend the planet's people as well as the very ideals upon which the Federation itself was founded. [/I] [B][I]Star Trek: Nemesis[/I][/B] [IMG]http://www.makeathumbnail.com/thumbnails/image155978.jpg[/IMG] [I]Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew return to battle a chilling new adversary... that just happens to hold a shocking link to Picard! In the wake of a joyful wedding between William Riker and Deanna Troi, Picard receives another reason to celebrate: the Romulans want peace and the captain will be the Federation's emissary. But as the Enterprise heads towards the Romulan Empire, a brilliant villain awaits--harboring a diabolical plan of destruction and an unimaginable secret that will give Picard his most fearsome challenge.[/I] Timeline wise - Star Trek: Enterprise - 2151 - 2155 Star Trek: The Original Series - 2265 - 2269 Star Trek: The Next Generation - 2364 - 2370 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - 2369 - 2375 Star Trek: Voyager - 2371 - 2378 [B][I]Don't post anything involving the J.J.

I was going to post one named Star Trek (we like the J.J. Films here) v3

[QUOTE=Sobek-;40007039][IMG]http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/2876/voyterprise.jpg[/IMG] Damn, Janeway's really let herself go... Twiddling my thumbs waiting for the TNG season 3 blu ray release![/QUOTE] Yeah, I was real confused for a sec. I think season 3 of TNG is where it really starts to get good.
Why is Voyager listed twice (as Enterprise)? Oh, by the way, DS9's pic doesn't work for me.
Has anyone had trouble trying to buy the original series

Ideally the title should have said '2009 film series'. Thanks for including my Data gif in the OP, you can tell he really approves hahaha
[QUOTE=Sobek-;40010518]Ideally the title should have said '2009 film series'. Thanks for including my Data gif in the OP, you can tell he really approves hahaha[/QUOTE] Your welcome Also if your all wondering. I added Best of Both Worlds to movie list as it is a major factor to the TNG film series (First Contact)
I found 'The Inner Light' so emotional and sad. At the end when Picard awakens [sp]both he and the audience are left to wonder whether he has returned to his true home, or left it forever[/sp]
I rough cut of the TNG Season 2 episode "The Child" has been found, and it contains extra footage not in the aired version, most of the scenes were cut for good reasons, redundancy, bad acting etc. [url]http://trekcore.com/blog/2013/03/exclusive-extended-workprint-cut-of-tngs-s2-opener-the-child/[/url] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WpOEyKXsaA[/media]
I honestly thought The Child was one of the worst episodes of Season 2 besides Shades of Gray and The Royale
Early seasons of TNG are pretty bad in general compared to later on. Tried to be too much like the original series instead of a "new age" as they should be. In my opinion, of course.
[QUOTE=TheKritter71;40067246]I honestly thought The Child was one of the worst episodes of Season 2 besides Shades of Gray and The Royale[/QUOTE] Aww I liked The Royale
Just... yes. [url]http://trekmovie.com/2013/03/28/william-shatner-fights-the-gorn-again-in-star-trek-game-promo/[/url]
[QUOTE=TheKritter71;40067246]I honestly thought The Child was one of the worst episodes of Season 2 besides Shades of Gray and The Royale[/QUOTE] Wait, shades of gray? So that's where she got inspiration for that book.
I think one of the saddest TNG episodes I saw was the Outcast [video=youtube;mMqGlSjAbwA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMqGlSjAbwA[/video]
I've been re-watching TNG lately; I've forgotten how good it is.
who wants to be steam coop buddies for ST: the video game on april 23rd! i need some D:
I finished the finale of TNG today, It was satisfying but how did Troi [sp] get into a relationship with Worf[/sp] I thought it was all a illusion in that one episode.
Is anyone else going to The Best of Both Worlds theater event? I sure am!

Okay I'm going to come out and say it, I don't care what anyone's opinion of me is anymore. I can't hide it anymore. Deep Space 9 is my favorite Star Trek series.
