    I think most young men were. :)

    She was pretty useless in the show though for the most part.

    Sadly that was often the case.
    When people start shooting at you it is pretty obvious that they are hostile.

    They learned from their mistakes in Enterprise and had T'Pol undress in the first episode (if I remember correctly).

    Going through all the movies now. TNG started to go downhill a bit in the 6th Season but it has been pretty enjoyable for the most part when you skip the more formulaic episodes. I always liked Guinan personally. She brought a lot to the show especially in Generations which I thought was pretty decent. 50th anniversary really needs some more promotion going on besides Abrams rebooted universe.

    Call me an idiot, but the TNG movies - all of them - are utter garbage.

    The Wrath of Khan, The Voyage Home, and The Undiscovered Country were decent, though. The TNG movies were shite all the way.

    I am a bit in doubt about First Contact as I did kind of like that movie, but that does not apologize for the mistakes and flaws in it.
    It sadly also introduced the Borg Queen.

    I liked the Borg Queen at the time but after researching the lore a bit and seeing what they did in Voyager - that was the beginning of the decline of that faction. I still like the first two TNG movies.

    Something I think that the producers practiced a 'scorched earth' tactic with both 'Endgame' and 'Nemesis'.
    "We are not going to use the Borg any more, turn them from a nearly unstoppable force into wimps easily defeated by techno babble."
    "We are not going to do anything more with the Picard and the Enterprise crew, lets have a lot of fighting in the last movie, we kill of Data (but leave a backdoor in in case we do want to bring him back), and have the crew go their separate ways after some weak ass ending, and we will try to make it like Star Trek 6 and yet not completely."

    is right, the TNG movies sucked.
    First Contact was exciting for the time but when you compare it to TNG it is a 6 or a 7 at best.

    I don't know. I haven't watched them in years so I will have to rewatch them to see how I feel about them now. I do know Nemesis (which sucked horribly) was supposed to lead into one last movie but it didn't pan out. Stewart seemed excited about it at the time. It was a shitty way for the crew to go out.

    I liked Generations since it bridged the old crew with the new, but they have never adhered to the canon much so that bums me out. Star Trek as a series hasn't been maintained as well as Star Wars, which has it's own set of problems.

    Indeed, and that is why I sometimes think "Hey, perhaps there should be a reboot". But not that horrible action vehicle Abrams and his lackeys Orci and Kurtzman (and Lindeloff) made, which basically is a Star Wars rip off with Star Trek names and species tacked on it.

    Star Trek's timeline already no longer connects to reality as we have not had any Eugenics Wars during the 90s, and I while am not going to rule out another world war (though honestly not in order to make reality compatible with Star Trek again), I think Star Trek's history's past needs to push more decades into the future or be completely revised.
    And it would be easier to do that with a better reboot.

    Even the technology in Star Trek is way behind on some of the things we have no. Why for example would Starfleet crews' not deploy drones to survey planets before sending people down, or have them as back up on the team.
    Thrill of discovery my ass, no sane space exploration agency wants its people to needlessly expose themselves to danger on an unknown world. They want as much information before they send actual people down.

    Star Trek is running the risk of becoming irrelevant, and having it remade for an audience that is only interested in action flicks is not helping what kept it alive in the first place.
    I know that a lot fans like the new movies but I as a fan feel insulted and less interesting in supporting the franchise. And I am one of those people who also buys the media spin off junk like comics, toys and so on.

    Well, that is what they have already done in TNG. A potentially dangerous mission? But of course! The best oportunity to send all of the most imporant officers of the Enterprise down to investigate! But it's simply something that you had to accept from the first moment you watched any Star Trek.
