I'm sure the feeling is mutual
Can't wait for Worf to make his entrance, the seasons so far have a very high ferhormone level. Looking for some testoterone!
I know Kira is a bad *, but she's a puppy compared to Worf.
I love Worf
Double, I really need to implement forum features on wp7
This thread is great. I never got into any of the Treks other than TNG. From season 3 on, it is one of the best shows in my lifetime. I only watched the first couple of episodes of DS9; maybe I'll give it another chance now that it's on Netflix.
My wife and I just got through all of the original movies. I had only seen 1, 4, and 6 before. I have to say that #4 remains my favorite. #5 takes the prize as the worst, beating out the snooze-fest that is #1.

@spivonious: 2, 6 and 8 are the best Trek movies. Five is horrible and should never be mentioned.
The Trek movies that are usually cited as the good ones have good pacing but tend to be cheesy and action-driven.
The Wrath of Khan is good in some respects but its also incredibly cheesy. For a supposed genetically enhanced super-genius, all Khan can do is quote literary works in a completely hammy way, and he's outwitted by the Enterprise crew pretty easily.
First Contact is loaded with action movie sequences and cheesy lines like "assimilate this!" They also ruined the whole concept of the Borg with the Borg Queen, Borg society was mean to be a collective consciousness, not insect-like.
Some aspects of the writing are good.. but I think other aspects of the writing fail. Most of the Star Trek movies try to center around strong themes -- Star Trek: Generations was about death as being a part of the human condition and it had literary quotes also ("time is the fire in which we burn") and clever lines ("normal is what other people are but what you are not"), but it isn't highly rated. There are definitely weak parts of the Wrath of Khan.
You guys are turning a past time into a study.
When I'm done watching a Star Trek movie, I go like 'meh' or 'yeah'.
I must say, I was rather surprised that the latest Star Trek movie was that good. But then again, I did not set my standards very high. One thing that did bug me, was that shimmering of lights when computer screens were near.
And ofcourse Chan as George Takei, I mean Sulu, was awesome.
That was epic!
Surely if you have to tell me why it's good, it's not good?
(For artistic/opinion things only, obviously not for issues of hard fact )
(This isn't a comment on whether TWOK is good or not good... I've not really seen enough of the Trek movies to comment in that regard)
