Trekkie Love ;)
Never cared for TOS, and Enterprise couldn't hold my attention.
I received a recommendation for the ST animated series on Amazon and thought it looked pretty interesting. I haven't seen any of those either. I think I might have to check those out as well.
An old friend of mine has a ton of them, but unfortunately because his significant other turns her nose up at them, he has them packed away in boxes and paper grocery bags.
But I have enjoyed the DS9 novels, and despite the fact that this may get me voted off the island, I honestly did like the Enterprise series. I've picked up a few of the Enterprise novels, but haven't read them yet because of my "not read" backlog.
(Or, y'know, you could offer to give your friend's collection a good home.)
I watched a bit of "Enterprise" and actually liked it better than a lot of later DS9 and Voyager - it seems pretty well put-together, but - it contradicts the books out the wazoo, and yes, I totally put the books over the shows. (Not that it doesn't also contradict the show. Much like the later movies.) And it doesn't share that fundamentally optimistic theme that TOS and TNG (and the first few seasons of DS9 and VOY) had which is so Star Trek to me.
As for TNG, having almost every book from TOS (I'm actually going to have to Amazon those last 2-3, because I simply can't find them) I decided to give a book named Q-Squared a try...and it simply won my heart, lol...
I think DS9 has the edge for me.
Yes and agree also about TOS and Enterprise. This refers to the TV series as I'm only just about to delve into some of the books - 'to boldly go'!
My favorite books are Diane Duane's TOS books and just about anything with McCoy. Doctor's Orders makes me very, very happy (McCoy is left in command after bitching at Kirk one too many times. It's *supposed* to be a simple survey mission, and Kirk wants to see the planet. Then Kirk disappears . . . then the Klingons show up . . . then someone who wants to kill all of them shows up . . . and McCoy is very annoyed.)
Live long and prosper.
I watched TOS from, well, the pre-season commercials (I still remember the design graphics). And, of course, I loved it . . . so much so that, when I broke some family rule (at age 13 or so), the punishment wasn't grounding; it was "you may not watch this week's episode of Star Trek" (ghod, that was rough!).
And then, I pretty much missed TNG while it was airing originally, and DS9, and somehow "found" VOY accidentally in, like, Season 4, and got totally hooked back into the ST universe. ...started buying TNG DVDs, got totally confused by watching DS9 reruns out of order, then came to totally appreciate it via DVD. Watched ENT straight through as it aired.
So, well, I can't choose . . . and . . . why choose?!? They're all good.
Re the novels: I have many, am still making my way through them . . . some are really good, all are fun.
And, what do you all think about "Star Trek" (2009)? You won't be surprised to hear that I loved it.
Just my opinion...
I liked 2009, it was exciting, but I'd have preferred new characters to updated PC versions of the original. And I don't forgive them for destroying Vulcan and killing Kirk's Dad.
