So do I (about the TV series). I can argue that any of the older Star Trek series are the best. I haven't quite worked Discovery into my list but here are examples from my IMDB account.I do have my own complaints about Star Trek series and movies. But I tend to be more positive about the things I love.
I love the inclusion of the Kzinti. It's a shame CBS couldn't have kept them in the main storyline, but as a Star Fleet Battles player I've read thousands of pages about them. Mostly SSDs, and tactical papers, but they are an amazing adversary in that universe.It is, and I've now watched the first 3 episodes. Great stories! Poor animation, but what the heck! I'm impressed.
I don't think Picard would be an exemplary Captain in today's military, but find his style far more likely in a future military than Kirk.Sigh! I now know I am in the serious minority, but I never bought Picard as a captain. For all his flaws Kirk was a believable captain as was Janeway. But Picard just seemed too detached even when the story suggested he was all in, for him to work for me as a Captain...... So although I'd love to see a new series, Picard acts as an anchor on my enthusiasm. --- But, in all of the shows save, Voyager, the first mate was always the character I loved and felt was by far the one I would like to be.
To be honest I don't think none of them should have continued as captains of starships and Kirk shouldn't have been given admiralty as he is far too hotheaded for that responsibility. I think Picard at the end wanted just to sit somewhere nice, possibly in a vinery, while enjoying sunsets he hadn't seen for a long time. My understanding is that his mind wouldn't have let him stay there forever as Picard would have either started writing books or moved to teach people, while still enjoying solid ground beneath his feet.I don't think Picard would be an exemplary Captain in today's military, but find his style far more likely in a future military than Kirk.
