"We were standing on the northwesternmost point of America watching waves slam into big fucked-up caves beneath us. The entire country was behind us in the most literal way possible."
No it is not. Sara Palin is gonna come pop a cap in your ass.
commented on Which Is The Best Star Trek Series?
Totally agree with 14. STE could easily have been the best just by doing backdrop for TOS.
The backstory of Vulcan was excellent and explained why Vulcans are they way they are. The Vulcan v Andorian plot was awesome! They could have delved into the establishment of the Federation, war with the Romulans, war with the Klingons, the arrival of the Tholians, etc .. They had ample and fertile ground for great stories. Instead they took a lay way out: TIMEWAR. Ugh. (Which JJ Abrams did much better with imho)
However, I really enjoyed it. It is still my fave of all the series. I especially liked that stories took more than one episode to tell, and the characters kept coming back. Even though the TIMEWAR plot was crap, the episodes and stories were really good.
STE is the best. Followed by the last seasons on STV, then TOS, the last three seasons of TNG. DS9 is just a holiday inn in space. Blech. The only redeeming part of DS9 is "Trials and Tribble-ations."
