I hope that you enjoy Enterprise when you see it. Many fans don't care for it all that much. However I personally love it and I think it is a very strong series. I would've voted it for myself. But DS9 is my favorite. Enterprise is my 2nd favorite. But I definitely reccomend it.

1. STNG


2.DS9


3.STTOS


4.VOY


5.ENT


Never saw the animated series. 


I love STTNG the most because it was the first series I ever saw.


DS9 I loved the Dominion war.  I got a chance to see what the federation ships could really do.


the original because its the original


Voyager I really didn't like because there were no characters that I gravitated to. I didn't even bother to watch the last two episodes and this is also the reason why I never watched Enterprise.

It's between TNG and DS9 for me.  I chose DS9 cuz it took TNG about 3 seasons to get "good" in my opion.  I liked DS9 the best because it was the least Trek-like of all the series, oddly enough.  And I appreciated the fact that it had an ending.  It can't be carried on into endless movies with the stars getting old and fat and the characters ruined because the writers have run out of ideas.


Voyager is my least favorite.  All creative writing progress made in DS9 was shattered with VOY.  It was sooo cliched and whiney.


In order my favorites are:


DS9


TNG


TOS


ENT


VOY


I loved TOS but it didn't have time to defelop like the others.  Unfairly, but still...


I give ENT a B.  I liked it very much, but it got too dependant on time travelling for me.  I understand they needed their own unique arch-enemy, but time travel stories are ticklish work.. they're good for a movie or an episode here and there, but when they carry on week after week, they're just begging someone to blow holes in the concept.

I see what you're saying about the time travel in Enterprise, and I know time travel is easy to mess up, but I love Enterprise all the same.

My Aunt actually got me the first season of Enterprise for Christmas.  I'm looking forward to it cuz I do love Scott Backula and I liked alot of the characters on the show.

I'm with Harpo on time travel stories. If you're going to do time travel, you had better do it real well, or you'll end up with a mess of a story that leaves people either angry or bored. Right JJ?

It was too dark for my taste.  Generally speaking, I'm not usually a fan of darker stories, and in this case, I thought the dark tone did not fit with the larger Trek franchise or even with the rest of the Enterprise series.


As for the movies, I like them all, but Star Trek VI is my favorite, because of the way it combines cinematically scaled action and intrigue with an embrace of what I consider to be the larger franchise's ethos: the painful coming together of different kinds of people in the face of real obstacles, as explored through the science fiction device of extraterrestrials.


My least favorite movies are Nemesis, because I think the long space battle drags at the expense of plot development, and Star Trek III, because the plot is so bizarre.

Well that makes sense I suppose.


Personally I like the occasional darker storyline in Star Trek because while I do love how positive Star Trek is, the darker tones are generally more realistic, because darker things happening, that's just life.


So I find them interesting.


My favorite film is Insurrection. I don't find it boring in the least. I do find it to definitely be one of the more political films, if not the most political film, but I love politics. And I love how Insurrection was a moral based story. I love Picard's speeches in the film.


Honestly it's hard for me to pick a least favorite film because I think they're all so good. But I guess I'll have to say Star Trek V, only because it's just very silly. It's almost like the writers were just bored one day and were like, let's just come up with something random.

DS9 - Brilliant and epic. I want to live on DS9!


TNG - Strong nostalgia value. The best standard by which to judge other Treks.


VOY - Often successful, but should and could have done so much more with the idea.


TOS - A mix of gratifying highs and embarrassing lows, but a must watch for all Trekkies.


ENT - A prequel wouldn't have been my choice, but I actually liked it. It just took too long to find its purpose and sadly ran out of time.


I haven't seen TAS.  I'm going to re-watch VOY and ENT pretty soon, so we'll see if I've changed my opinions.

I'm not sure I believe that darker stories are more realistic, and I'm less sure I believe that Star Trek does or should have much to do with realism.


I'm not saying every episode should be "The Trouble With Tribbles." but I would like the range of tone to move between something like "Tribbles" and episodes like "A Private Little War."  The latter is a bleak, heartbreaking episode, in which Kirk and the other "heroes" are presented ambiguously, in terms of their moral choices, but it's not dark the way Season 3 of Enterprise was--and, in part, I mean that very literally.  One of my biggest complaints about that season was that the lights were always off and I couldn't see much of anything.


Insurrection is my favorite of the Next Generation movies.  I'm surprised by (what I perceive to be) the movie's generally negative reception.

I am insulting 2009 Sora. It seems only fair, since I felt insulted by that film.
