Show them the finale. That, ironically, was my first episode. If they resist, say that you'll watch an equal amount of some dumb show they like with out making sarcastic commentary.

First, I'd like to say that you're lucky you have two friends willing to try Star Trek. Doc and I have been trying to get our two bffls to watch Star Trek for months and whenever we bring it up, they go "Nerds!" But, you should start with Encounter at Farpoint and work something out with them as you go on.

XD LMAO grand!

@zombiepizza ahhhh...I vote no, the last episode is the last episode for a reason, and I prefer to keeps it that way, also my friends don't want tasteless "dumb" shows.

@ChekovIsEpic I think you two need to find some better, less judgmental friends. No offence or anything, friends just shouldn't judge like that.

Jolan Tru, may your day be filled with peace.

I show my friends short clips from "The Nakked Now", "Tapestry", and any Barcley episode. When people think something's funny, they watch it, and when they watch it, they are hooked for life by it's incredible awesomeness.

i'd pick a compleatly random episode so theirs no bias about what is better. my mom showed me an episode of tv so she couldn't tell me what episode is good or bad because i only had one to see.


on the other hand, you don't want to pick an episode with an overload of trekkie jargon to confuse your friends.


I will be the next captian of the Enterprise :P

I'm starting my friend on the third season cause it has some great episodes. Also, for your friends: Resistance is futile.

It really depends on your audience. If you want sci-fi action, start them on a movie like First Contact. If they are more cerebral, start them on Encounter at Farpoint and then skip ahead to the third season. The graphics and the choices of the actors are a little hokey for today's standards. But if they want something thoughtful (human nature, supreme being passing judgment, if they can see past the fact it's two squids on the screen at the end), I think Farpoint is probably the best starting point.


If I were trying to get me to watch the shows, I would start with some episodes of the Original Series, mostly from the first season.


Its stories are about the depth and complexity of human interaction and relationships. It studies us and asks us to look within ourselves, to relate, to ask how would we respond to all that is in their world?
