I grew up in a weird time when Star Trek was only in reruns, and these fat old guys with bad toupees and one foot in the grave kept making movies. Also James Bond was Roger Moore. Odd times. But that's who I identify with. TNG is superior for sure, but TOS really grabbed my imagination. I've been Netflixing TNG lately, the early stuff hasn't aged all that much better than TOS - a lot of it is like the same 'paper-mache rocks on a studio lot' and laughable latex facial prosthetics look that TOS had. And whenever they go outside, no matter what planet, it always looks like SoCal.
