Star Trek Favourites

A lot of people debate amongst other fans of Star Trek about their favourites. Sometimes, they can be so passionate that arguments start. So, if any passionate fans want to disagree with me, go ahead!

Here are some of my favourites from Star Trek.

Favourite Star Trek Series

Star Trek: The Next Generation. This was the one I grew up watching, and it’s always been my favourite. It also has other favourites, but that’s for later in this post.

Honourable Mention: Deep Space Nine

Favourite Captain

Definitely Jean-Luc Picard. Great Captain, great actor.

Honourable Mention: Jonathan Archer. Just because we share the same last name. Nah, I just find him likeable.

Favourite Enterprise

Enterprise D. Luxury, holodecks, incredible size. Also, powerful. I have the technical manual, so I know it better than the others, as well.

Honourable Mention: Original refit Enterprise or Enterprise A. I love the classic movie design.

Favourite Original Cast Movie

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. It’s just plain funny, and the one I enjoyed re-watching so many times.

Honourable Mention: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. It’s a classic and has some of the greatest moments in Star Trek.

Favourite Next Generation Movie

Star Trek: First Contact. You can’t beat this Next Gen movie. Great action, the Borg, and Zephram Cochrane.

Honourable Mention: This is so difficult to decide, but probably an unpopular choice… Star Trek Generations. Picard and Kirk together.

Favourite Science Officer

Data! Although he’s not technically a science officer, he’s about the closest you get in Next Generation.

Honourable Mention: Spock. What’s great is that he and Data met.

Favourite Doctor

Doctor Leonard “Bones” McCoy. He’s always been my favourite with his catch phrases.

Honourable Mention: Doctor Julian Bashir. Not sure exactly why, but I just liked him.

Favourite Chief Engineer

Lt. Commander Geordie LaForge. Maybe it’s because I watched a lot of Reading Rainbow. I just liked the actor.

Honourable Mention: Commander Montgomery Scott. I met James Doohan! He’s actually very close behind LaForge.

Favourite Timeline

The original one containing all the TV series and the non-Abrams movies.

Honourable Mention: Mirror Universe. I guess you could call it an alternate timeline. The reboot movies are an actual alternate timeline, but I’m not a big fan of them. I don’t know, they just don’t feel right.

How about you? What are your favourites?

  1. I don’t have a favorite series. I like both of your Captain choices and would add Janeway. I also am fan of both Data and Spock. In addition to Leonard Nimoy’s wonderful interoperation of Spock over so many decades, I appreciate Zachary Quinto’s portrayal of a younger Spock in the new movies. I admit that I was never a fan of Bones, but I enjoyed both Dr. Beverly Crusher and Dr. Katherine Pulaski on Next Gen and the holographic Doctor from Voyager. Without question, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is my favorite of the movies. Another character that I enjoyed watching was Seven of Nine. I think, as a woman, I tend to gravitate toward the women characters, who became more prominent in the later series. (Seriously, though, some of the costuming for women has been highly questionable.)

    1. Janeway was good. I was never a fan of Dr. Pulaski. I see what you mean about the costuming. It seems the movies and later series became more unisex. The uniforms were the same for men and women, generally. But I also think to gain viewers, they wanted to have a sexy main female character.
