I'm old enough to remember Captain James T. Kirk (and his predecessor, Christopher Pike) when they were black & white - at least, that's how they appeared on my family's TV.
Years later, Senior Management and I became big fans of the appropriately titled, Star Trek:The Next Generation. I loved the darker aspect of its spinoff,Star Trek:Deep Space Nine. For me, the franchise waned after that. Star Trek:Voyager and Star Trek:Enterprise had their moments, but they didn't quite have the magic of the first three series.
Why do I bring this up? Because yesterday, as I browsed through the 'Watch now' menu on Netflix, I discovered to my delight that all the Star Trek TV shows (except DS9, which must surely follow soon), are now available on Netflix streaming.
It's a tough choice, but much as I loved the original series (and the 2010 re-launch), If pushed, I'd have to choose Star Trek:The Next Generation as my favorite.
I know what I'll be watching over the weekend.
