Had some major health complications last year. Right before the worst of it began, I had ordered TOS on Blu-ray because I'd been so impressed with Abrams' 2009 reboot. Obsession quickly set in. Watched all five series and all the movies within a six month time frame.
As I entered Trek circles online, discovered that there were many "Trek rookies" like me who wanted to get into the franchise, but didn't know where to start.
I think a rookie's perspective is helpful to other rookies, because let's face it....many long time Trekkies have rather, shall we say, strong opinions.
Here's the piece that I wrote for TOS on an awesome site called ActionAGoGo.com. http://www.actionagogo.com/2013/09/trek-for-rookies-original-series.html
Any and all feedback is appreciated, whether it be additions, changes or deletions.
