    Let's see, another TNG episode I liked was when Data was put on trial to determine whether he could be ordered to go back to Starfleet for experimental testing, or if he had the right to free will and/or sentience. I thought the issues raised were interesting.
    Ah, yes - classic scenes from two classic (and classy! ) shows. "Lucy in the Candy Factory" and the TNG second-season episode " The Measure of a Man."
    You're right, canuck. Those are both good episodes.

    What I wouldn't give for Nick at Nite to show some of their older shows. Fresh Prince, George Lopez, Home Improvement and the occasional Roseanne can only go so far...

    As for Trek, well... my first introduction to the series was thanks to Next Generation, which led me to finding what I could of the original series, as well as the movies. All around good stuff, though I could never decide which cast I preferred more.

    I did try watching Deep Space Nine, but I've never been able to really get into that show. Eventually I started watching Voyager on a fairly regular basis, even if I had missed the first season or two. The Doctor was easily one of my favorite characters on the show.

    And then there's Enterprise. I did give the show a shot when it first aired, but, much like DS9, I didn't really get hooked on it. However, thanks to all the reruns on the Sci-Fi Channel... now I'm hooked on the show. The first season was a little rough, but it looks like it improved quite quickly. Its a shame I didn't stick with it back when it was new. Though I don't think I'll ever get used to the song that always plays at the beginning of each episode.

    I think a lot of the major plots were really good in Enterprise, but then there are also a lot that I could have done without.

    I thought the opening song was okay, though I'm disappointed they didn't go with an original composition, or fit in the "These are the voyages..." voiceover. I did really like the opening montage sequence, though.
    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?

    Anyone ever play any Star Trek video games?

    These are the games I've played:

    Star Trek: 25th Anniversary - NES
    It's not too bad, given the system limitations. It's pretty funny, though, seeing the profile of Kirk yelling when your landing party's split up, and it's also amusing that they used Zoso symbols for a puzzle in the game.

    Star Trek: The Next Generation - SNES/Genesis
    I remember there being a few differences between the games, but being similar in the basic plot; I recall the SNES version being harder.

    Star Trek: Starfleet Academy - SNES
    Featuring a Movie-era Academy, and music based on James Horner's score from The Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock, made for a nice little entry, even though the 3-D graphics were extremely limited. It was always fun to unlock the Excelsior and pound away at foes... not to mention that if you unlock Kirk's name in the game, you too can cheat at the Kobayashi Maru scenario!

    Star Trek: Starship Creator - Win9x
    This was a cute little game for when I was first starting out on a Win98 machine, before I had Internet access at home. I still have this game, but haven't used it in several years.

    Star Trek: Shattered Universe - PS2
    The most "modern" Trek game I've played, which I happened to find for cheap. The gameplay doesn't seem as much like a Trek game, as you're in a fighter craft, but it's not completely without merit. George Takei and Walter Koenig provide the voices of Sulu and Chekov, respectively, giving the cutscenes added value. That, and revisiting the Mirror Universe in the Movie era, with the Empire still intact...

    I agree. I liked all of the Star Trek themes except that one. It just did not fit, I think.

    After I finally got my own computer, I tried to obtain a copy of that game; I wanted so badly to be able to design my own starships. Unfortunately, they don't make it any more; besides, I'm not sure if it would even work on any of the current PCs now available. I wish they'd re-release it...

    Personally, I liked that opening song. I thought it was a nine change of pace.

    Shifting subjects, what do you guys think of the Trek reboot that J. Michael Straczynski and Bryce Zabel proposed to Paramount a few years ago?

    A nice change of pace. Getting a little closer, getting a little closer...

    Sounds like what JJ Abrams and Co. are doing now...

    Yes, so I have heard, but could you show me something where either him, one of his crew, or Paramount specifically calls it a reboot or a reimagining or something similar? I've seen it called such in a lot of places, but never straight from the horse's mouth. It's not that I don't believe you, it's just that I'd like to be sure that isn't just an assumption on the part of the fandom. I've checked what Abrams and his bunch have said, and they refuse to come straight out and call it that.
