I just saw the Star Trek movie over the weekend and I must say that it was pretty amazing. Great story, good action. :)

I have to admit, the first thing I thought of when reading the title of the thread was the movie "FANBOYS"

If you have seen it, you will get the reference.

If you HAVEN'T seen the movie and enjoy wars or trek....SEE THE MOVIE.


Star Trek.

Star Wars is a story that could be set in a variety of environments. But Star Trek is most true to the essence of science fiction - to explore strange new worlds, to help imagine what the future is going to look like on our present course (or what it could be if we improved as a species), and to put the characters in imaginative environments only possible in the scifi context in a way that illustrates a truth about the human condition.

While I don't agree with a lot of what ST says along that vein (Their utopian society is absurd imho), at least they try, and many times do very well. DS9 moved away from that vision in its later seasons, and the new ST movie doesn't have any of it, but TOS and TNG did it great.

You know the guy that came up with the new Battlestar Galactica series, Ron D. Moore, wrote quite a few of the later DS9 episodes. He began by writing the third season premiere, "The Search, Part I", which saw the introduction of the USS Defiant. He wrote the episode "Trials and Tribble-ations" as a tribute to the original Star Trek's 30th Anniversary. He wrote the widely acclaimed "The Dogs of War" episode as well. You can tell by those episodes and from the third season onward in DS9 the darker, more adult storylines he would try to bring into Trek. Just a tidbit of info on why DS9 was darker and different than the other trek shows. Also, the believable rumor that Paramount stole the idea of DS9 from J. Michael Straczynski when he presented them with everything he had with his idea for a series called Babylon 5 (the series bible, pilot script, artwork, lengthy character background histories, and plot synopses for the first 22 episodes). We know how dark B5 can get...

I must admit I have only watched ST twice in my life and have not watched the film. I really like the old Star Wars (4+5+6) so I will have to go with that (;

Star Wars. I prefer the first three movies though. That would be Episodes 4 through 6.
