Personally, I am one of the fans who enjoys it all.


I'm just curious to see which percentage of fans are like me and enjoy everything verses the ones who don't.

I like the series better than most of the movies. I'm kinda "meh" on the movies (preferred some of TOS, none of TNG). I'm also kinda "meh" on the authorized novels I have read so far. I'm not trying to get too specific because some posters act screwy when you negatively comment on their favorite movie/show/book.


Overall, I like the concept behind ST if not always the execution.

I like some of the shows, and some better than others. And I like most of the films, but I didn't just watch and love everything that had the name Star Trek attached to it. Loves for shows are DS9, TOS, and TNG (in that order). I liked some of Enterprise, but mostly its those very few episodes with Andorians and Tellarites over the ones with Borg or Klingon or Xindi or the whole Temporal Cold War thing. I hate Voyager and just can't watch it at all. I didn't like Nemesis much, am okay with Generations and Nemesis, and really hate TMP and V and 2009. I quite like Search 4 Spock and Insurrection (yes, I'm the one), but my loves are Voyage Home and Kahn and First Contact.

Yeah I agree with you about the movies. The movies don't usually feel any different than just a really long tv episode, or a two or three parter, crammed into one full length episode.


Now that being said, I still love the films. But for people who expect a tv show to be a tv show, and a film to be a film, I can understand why some fans don't like the movies. And I'd say Star Trek 2009 is probably the film that felt most like a film. The other films felt like an episode to their respective series.

I like it all, when I watch the series I watch all the episodes, even ones that are not my favorites. When I watch the movies I watch them in order when I do a marathon, and I do Enjoy the Motion Picture(DVD Director's Cut), the Final Frontier, and even Insurrection


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?

Wow you sound just like me.


I own the entire franchise in dvd, and I have all the dvds sorted out in my 400 disc dvd player.


I enjoy watching the whole story from start to finish.


I start with Enterprise, then watch TOS, then TAS, then The motion picture through The Undiscovered Country. Then start on TNG Season 1-5 and then watch Season 6 with Season 1 of DS9. Start Season 1 of Voyager with Season 3 of DS9 and continue watching the shows together until DS9 finishes. And throw in Generations, First Contact and Insurrection with the series. Watch Season 6 and 7 of Voyager and then Nemesis, and then Star Trek 2009. After that my cycle starts over again


 


I love Trek and just don't get sick of it.

I like the entire series... there are episodes here and there that are kind of... WTFish... along with 2 movies (GEN+TMP). But thats not an entire series, just little problems here and there.
All in all, I enjoy most of it. Virtually all of it.

I'm glad to hear it. I've gotten the impression and I'm glad that it appears that I was wrong, that most of the Trek fans hate a majority of Star Trek. It just felt like I was always hearing crap about Voyager and Enterprise and hearing things like, the TNG films were terrible, First Contact was just ok and the other 3 weren't even watchable, and basically that Star Trek II and IV and 2009 were the only good films.


I just got that vibe, and I found it very depressing and somewhat frustrating, but from what the majority has said in this thread and what the poll results are showing so far, looks like most fans do enjoy everything.


Perhaps I've just run into some trolls on the forum and that's all it was.

I enjoy most of it. Every series has had some fantastic episodes, as well as stinkers. I've enjoyed all the movies, from "eh, it was worth my $15 bucks", ("Insurrection"  ticket and snacks) to ST VI, which is my personal favorite and have watched far too many times over 20 years.

LOL. Why did you put TMP and TFF in parenthesis as the example of someone who truly loves the whole franchise?


I love both of those films but I probably enjoy less of the franchise than the vast majority of people on here.


I'm only a fan of TOS and DS9. I really don't care for TNG, VOY, or ENT. I didn't enjoy the new film either. I watch them for a more cohesive picture of the ST universe, but as stories and characters I don't care for any of them.
