My first memories of Star Trek are watching it in the 1970's while it was in syndication. My father loved the show, and I would sit and watch it with him. I have no memory of this, but my mom and dad would always try to get me to look away from the credits at the end of the show. Why? Because when they showed Balok at the end, I would start crying. I will start by ranking my favorite of the series and see what others think: 1) Voyager 2) ST:TNG 3) ST:TOS 4) ST: DS9 5) Enterprise I loved Voyager because of the characters, and how unlike the previous two incarnations (TNG/DS9), it didn't take them a couple of seasons to get it going. It came out of the barrel hot and didn't need major changes to make it interesting. And I had a thing for Kate Mulgrew. That said, the Original Series has a special place in my heart. Even though it originally aired before I was born, its cultural significance cannot be overstated. It had an optimism about the future that so many shows didn't have. And that is a good thing.
