Star Trek - 50 Years and beyond!

I remember watching Start Trek The Origibal Series(TOS), when I was a kid. The eerie music (late I heard was played on a theramin), and The big alien head in the end credits. I was actually scared about that part!
I watched the episodes over and over and thus a Trekkie was born.

In 1987 Star Trek - The Next Generation aired, I was mariied now and we both watched the show - both of us thought Captain Picard was sexy! (Later about 20 years or so I would come out of the closet, LOL). Now I was a Trekker!

I really loved Q, played by John de Lancie, an omnipotent brat. Intersting, he was one of my favourite characters on Days of Our Lives, as Eugene Bradford, who wrote a love column in "Salem Today", and was an Inventor.

Some time around 1993, Star Trek Deep Space Nine (DS9) launched. It was ok at the beginning was like a space-opera taking place on an alien (Cardassian) Space Station. Commander Sisko was a smooth talking leader who never seemed to get angry. At least he controlled it. Finally DS9 got a ship. The Defender. Much smaller than a Starship it was plenty big enough to take on incredible foes. It saved the series as far as I think. My favourite character was Kai Winn Adami and Kira Nerys. Two very strong Bajoran women.

Next came Star Trek Voyager. Stuck in the Delta quadrant, series started in 1995. I really liked that series, what with the Borg, Species 8472, trying to assimilate/kill them all the time. Not so safe out there. My favourite character was Captain Kathryn Janeway. I guess I like women in power! I was dissapointed in them actually arriving home. Everyone knows the journey is better than the destination!

You will notice that Star Trek Enterprise is missing from here. I simply found it boring and did not watch it.
