    I'm probably one of the few people here who can remember seeing TOS when it was still in first-run mode (though barely). It really wasn't until the early '70s that I became a fanatic about the show, however. Star Trek became my favorite show of my childhood and William Shatner was the greatest actor of them all in my book by the mid-'70s. In retrospect, I might have been a little hasty about the latter opinion , though I still think he's good and is unfairly maligned in some quarters.

    Having said all of that, I thing TNG is now my favorite of them all and Patrick Stewart as Jean Luc Picard is the captain to beat.

    A fun debate is the "who was the best science/ops officer"? You have Spock, Data, Dax, Kim and T'Pol, all of whom are brimming with expertise and potential. I don't think I have ever seen Kim win but maybe the CBR community would like to change that...? Who am I kidding, he has no chance against such stout opposition. Two Vulcans, a walking encyclopedia and a woman with several lifetimes of experience - there's no way a mere human ensign could compete. At least he still has the title of "Best Clarinetist in Star Fleet."

    By the way, the clear winner is obviously Data.

    Same here. Star Trek sparked my love of science fiction & the 1966 Batman TV show started my love of superheroes.

    A Question on 24th century Trek, did they ever explored the Galactic Barrier any further? This energy barrier that surrounds the Milky Way, it stops ships from going out or in and it's radiation can give (or enhance) psychic powers. It was a major plot point in like 3 episodes of TOS but they never got to much into it.

    What about the Guardian of Forever? Is it in any episode of TNG, DS9 etc?

    As far as I know the Galactic Barrier & the Guardian of Forever (except in an animated episode) were never mentioned after TOS.

    It was one of those TOS concepts that was quietly forgotten about.

    Maybe in the books.

    Bummer, they are fascinating concepts. Why is there an energy barrier stopping traffic at the edge of the Milky Way? Acording to the Kelvam it isn't the case in other galaxies.

    Yeah, according to Memory Alpha apparently there is a series of books by Peter David that ties in Trelane, Star Trek V and the Galactic Barrier to the Q. But that's something that really should be on screen. No one in the 24th century wonder what's that barrier about? Even though they made contact with members of Andromeda's Kelvan Empire (which IIRC Worf mention as still being around).

    It's just a bit of a bummer.

    from Wikipedia:

    Galactic Barrier

    Various books try to explain the existence of the galactic barrier, although none of these are canonical:
    The series of novels known as Star Trek: The Q Continuum explain the two barriers, stating that they were created by the Continuum 600,000 years ago, in order to keep one omnipotent being (known as "The One") sealed away at the center of the Galaxy, and to keep another (known as "0", whose powers can rival even the Q) locked out of the galaxy forever; this is due to both aliens' previous destructive rampages.
    In William Shatner's novel Captain's Glory, Picard mentions the events of the Q Continuum trilogy, but states that the barrier was built by the proto-humanoids shown in "The Chase" 4 billion years ago, in order to protect their "children" (the races they seeded across the galaxy) from a dark matter entity known as the Totality.
    The novel Q-Squared reveals the Galactic Barrier to be Q himself, in a time-tossed and temporally discorporated state.

    The Guardian of Forever appears in the TAS episode "Yesteryear"-which inspired a great deal of the Vulcan stuff in the 09 film, such as the bullies mocking Spock and Sarek's talk.

    There is also an upcoming IDW miniseries based on one of Harlan's scripts for "City on the Edge Of Forever" not sure if that will have the Guardian though.

    The thing I never understood about Star Trek: Voyager was why would the writers have Q show up several times, but not have him return the crew to the Alpha Quadrant? I don't think any excuses they used for him NOT to return the crew home made much sense.

    I'm also surprised that Q didn't show up on "Star Trek: Enterprise."

    HaaaaaaaaaaaaaHaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Hilarious. Thanks for the laugh.

    I would call it a close race between Spock and Data.
