Which Star Trek Series Would You Like to Guest On?

In one of those increasingly popular polls on Facebook, my friend Tim, of StarshipTim, who was also Captain of the U.S.S. Brock during that big Romulan-Borg hullabaloo, answered the question “What [Star Trek] series would you like to guest on?” with “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.” No surprise. He's been big on that series for a while.

I answered the original series, the one with Kirk, Spock and McCoy, TOS to fans, and relayed my reasoning to Tim in a series of posts:

  • The miniskirts alone answer that question for me.
  • Plus I want the pointy sideburns, the boots, and my shirt torn and the trickle of blood during a fight. Hopefully with Finnegan.
  • Plus I want to ignore the Prime Directive at my discretion.
  • But it's mostly the miniskirts.

I'm not saying it wouldn't be dangerous...

The JJ Abrams movie missed the boat not giving the guys pointy sideburns. Bring back the Academy Points, JJ!

Now that I've seen TNG, DS9, VGER and ENT, choosing TOS — to me, anyway — would be like saying my favorite century of the second millennium is the 19th.

Not only would I choose TNG, but I would choose the episode “All Good Things” because that's as far into the future as Star Trek goes — on-screen, anyway...I think. We don't know what's next, but the future looks okay.

Mr. B: miniskirts. Plus I don't need no fucking empath on the bridge. “I sense ... confusion.”
