I'm so happy to see this thread revived. I was thinking of it just the other day, when I saw the first episode of Voyager again — it's being played from the top on TV over summer. I never got into it (still wouldn't — it's pretty av), but watching it begin again, I felt strongly how much I liked the basic premise: after all that exploring, what about when you just want to go home? But I'm a sap who gets teary in Apollo 13 when they look out at Earth in the window. Love this little blue dot.

So, speaking of Wesley, it's really interesting that after all that, Wil Wheaton has grown up to be pretty awesome. He seems like a decent guy, he does cool stuff, and he realizes that Wesley was poorly written. He gets too much flak for the character he played just for basically playing him as written...

He wrote about it a bunch here:

http://www.aoltv.com/bloggers/wil-wheaton/

He's a nice guy. We swapped emails a couple of times after he made some kind of Car Wars joke that only people growing up in the 80's would get...

Yeah, I mean, he's kind of a shiitake character. I just put him in my fav's because he's shiitake in such a silly, 90's way that I kind of love it.

You can't hate Miles! He provides much needed moobs!

But yeah, Wesley. The funny thing is that as a kid I thought he was the best character ever, and now I just want to slap him upside the head and find myself yelling mean thing things at the TV when he talks.

I don't know so much if I hated his character as I hated his similar accent and physical stature to a hated former president.

Why all the hate for Miles O'Brein? I thought he was much loved as the voice of the down to Earth ordinary man not high on the crack of Federation ideals or officerhood?

I just like how whenever he's in plainclothes (especially when he's playing Bashir at racquetball) he looks like he sewed them out of potato sacks. It's like, replicator, two potato sacks and some twine please.

I would love a replicator.

Any time I see Colm Meaney in anything non-Trek, I always shout out "Chief O'Brien!". I kinda love him.

And yeah, Wil Wheaton is actually a really decent person. He uses his celebrity to raise funds for animal charities (and his pets are rescues!), and that's alright by me. Oh, and he's funny as shiitake. I think I might actually get the first volume of his Trek memoir/episode guide if someone gives me an Amazon voucher for Xmas.

Also (spoiler because of possibly NSFW swears):

Ugh, I don't know! I guess he's just so frakking cheese wank. And his face?! I can't stand his face. I think it's really that I hate the whole him/keiko storyline. It's so annoying.

P.S. My complaining about anything in Star Trek is really in a fun and loving way. As much as I hate Miles (I yell 'fork you Miles O'forking Brien' every time he does something cheesy on DS9), I enjoy making fun of him to the extent that it's actually fun that he's in it sometimes. 'Cause it's fun to make fun of people! Didn't you know?

Thanks to this video I will have this song stuck in my head for about a hundred years.

I finished TOS (all episodes and movies!) and have now moved on to TNG. It's great so far but I think I still liked TOS better. I have 7 seasons of it to make a decision, of course. Y'all were right, I do really like Data! But I miss Spock. I'm not sure how I feel about Picard yet. He seems to do a lot of...explaining.

This made me laugh! My least favourite character is definitely Riker. My flatmate used to amuse himself no end by inventing elaborate stories where I would have to suffer indefinite torture by marrying Riker (yes, we have no life).

Wil Wheaton managed to harness the power of social networking and nerd solidarity to go from having played one of the most reviled characters in Star Trek history to becoming an internet celebrity. I think that's kinda awesome.

I loathed TNG when it was new and my opinion has not changed since. So...much...talking. They have meetings constantly. It's the most bureaucratic of the Treks. It glories in bureaucracy.

The two worst episodes that come to mind are the de-evolution one (Although, keeping Troi as a big fish thing might have made her a more tolerable character) and the episode in which the Ferengi take over the Enterprise while Riker is in charge.

Troi- worst character ever.

Spock's Brain does have one of my favorite lines ever "Brain and Brain! What is brain?!?"

We recently finished watching all of TOS, and moved on to the animated series. It is so silly! Almost hard to get through, because they are so....silly. However, there is a giant Spock created, so that's pretty awesome. I'm ready to move onto TNG!

Yeah, I am definitely noticing an incredible amount of talking about stuff and not enough badassness. Also, is it necessary for everyone to constantly be like HEY DID YOU NOTICE LT. YAR IS A WOMAN???! every time she says or does anything notable? We get it. She's a woman.

I like Wesley, thus far, but I'm not even halfway into S1 yet.

I am also not a fan of Q as a villain. I keep waiting for its/his/?s God-parents to swoop down and make it/him/? cry like Trelane's in "Squire of Gothos". I prefer my villains not so whiny.

It get better after the first couple seasons, too, FYI.
