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
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.
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.
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.
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?
