Re: Best Star Trek Series

They did that exactly. They brought back the Andorians. They also brought back the tholians. ... Communication fail on my part! I meant that last paragraph I wrote to be praise for what I thought were good elements of the series. :) The only series that compares to it is the remake of Battlestar Ga...

Re: Best Star Trek Series

The films are substantially different from the tv series though. The series are cheesy but are usually much better written and directed than the films.
