I've recently picked up series 1 and 2 of the Next Generation cos I haven't seen any TNG in years. I'd forgotten how awful Encounter at Farpoint is. Fortunately series 1 picks up quite quickly after that. About half way through series 2 now and some of the real gem episodes are starting to come through. Good stuff.

Now I think 5 is poo from after Unification to I Bort, 4s rocky
Several of 6 (Realm of Fear, Face of the Enemy, Starship Mine) & some of 7 (Parallels, Masks, Eye of the Beholder) are rather good.
Which is the ep where people are snatched from the Enterprise in their sleep ?
But 3 rules.

In fact you can pin point the precise moment in S3 when the series really, *really* starts working. That's in the second episode, the Ensigns of Command. It's a bit dull over all but towards the end there's a moment where Picard cuts the link to the aliens he's negotiating with and goes for a walk about round the bridge while the aliens are frantically trying to contact him.
I read an article on this on my way home from uni the other week. It, it may be starting to grow on me. Can't remember what the article said (couldn't have been that good...), but I seem to remember I was impressed with the directors view on it. Again I can't remember why exactly- not mush use really am I?........
I was the one who let you know, I was your sorry ever after, '84, '85. Give me new toys and I'll decide, but I'm really only after, '84, '85.
It is a perfectly decent trailer. I haven't decided yet how motivated I am to see the actual film (I have a little while to make up my mind lets face it), but it looks like it might be decent space adventure nonsense, and there doesn't seem to be much else in that line in the offing.
I do think that their publicity might be starting a mite early though - almost as if they had already paid for advertising slots and a trailer slot before the film was moved back, and had to either use them or lose them.....
I've loved going to the cinema to see Star Trek films since I was a nipper. Trek just seems to belong on the big screen, for me. Let's be honest, I'm going to see this because it's a Star Trek film. I like Star Trek films.
So I'm not really the target audience for the trailer. I've already paid for a ticket in my mind. I will admit, however, to being rather irritated at the amount of promotion it's getting when it isn't out for another 7 months. I wonder if people will get sick hearing about it.
