Why did the cyborg fall in love or have to deal with some kind of new emotion every episode? Even ones that aren't about him in general have him on the sidelines somewhere trying to figure out what the gently caress guilt is or something.

Thomas the Tank Engine I can understand. It makes sense in it's own little context. "That train is smiling. People smile when they are happy and you'll spend the rest of your life assaulting your parents because you heard a high pitch bird call in the backyard."

No, they're not gonna hold me down

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything

And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star

TNG oscillated randomly between entertainingly awkward/corny/outright bad and good but the important thing is it was always entertaining

I think DS9 was probably the better show though

They were ugly and had bad aesthetics. If they were a group consciousness that also looked cool they would probably be fine.

I still maintain that 1)"Year of Hell" should have been what Voyager was all about all along and 2)this would have been the perfect end to the series. Let the ship and its crew go out in a blaze of unrecognized awesome.

What Voyager should have been about : Organically building a mini-Federation in the Delta Quadrant

What Enterprise should have been about : Mostly one off episodes with cool sci-fi stories and an ongoing backstory of Vulcan meddling.

They did that in a last-season episode, the ship gets caught in a void with a bunch of other ships and no way to get supplies except stealing. Janeway starts up a mini-federation to share supplies and to protect the new and confused/defenseless ships from raiders. It was good and then forgotten by the credits.

I liked the Judge John Hodgeman episode where he revealed he wanted an episode of TNG that was nothing but optimal application of procedure in order to complete a mission quietly and with no major hitches, because I used to want that as a child as well. A boring, boring child. Who liked procedure.

You know what this space action drama about a ship that apparently has a constant dribble of soma gas being pumped through the vents could use? Less action.

People seem to forget that Star Trek TNG started off unwatchably bad and didn't really start getting good until around season 3. The two part Borg episode marked the point where it crossed over into greatness. I'd say it was at its apex with The Inner Light, which was the best episode of the show. These days with networks being so cancel happy, I doubt TNG would have survived past the first season. Also, some of the multipart episodes were great, so I don't see why long story arcs would be a bad thing. I love the two parter where Picard gets tortured by the Cardassians.

If they ever do another Star Trek show, it should probably be on AMC and not network. AMC would keep it around until it finds its footing. I'm still a bit pissed that Enterprise got cancelled right as it was getting good. It was building to an all out war with the Romulans that we never got to see.

It was infected with Lost Disease that was going around TV at the time: Always stack on more and more questions, never answer poo poo, who gives a drat if they contradict each other? My problem wasn't the religious crap it's the fact it was contradictory unexplained religious crap without any coherent rules.

If the last two seasons were spent answering questions it'd been one of the greatest TV shows. Instead it has the worst misfired piece of poo poo finale I've seen.

"Hey guys I've got a great idea let's chuck our whole civilization including all our medicine into the sun and live in caves shagging natives! Victory!"

ED: Also how the gently caress did they continue calling Cylons robots the entire series. Clearly the non-shiny guys were genetic clones or something, not loving robots. It's not just that they looked like people on the inside (I guess like Blade Runner) but the fact they constantly complained about human limitations and poo poo. Every time they called one of them a "toaster" my only question was "...why?"

I actually think a tightly serialized Trek-like show could be interesting since plots could continue past the episode of the week stuff. The more serialization the better.

And season 1 of TNG only had one great episode:
