    On September 8, 1966, Star Trek premiered and went where no man has gone before.

    And it's still doing pretty well on CBS All Access. I'm looking forward to Star Trek: Picard.

    Yeah, but you have to subscribe to CBS All Access to get it. When Star Trek - Discovery came out, it was also only available on CBS All Access.

    Never got in to Deep Space 9 - but I've enjoyed most of the rest of them.

    Deep Space 9 really picked up (for me atleast) around the middle of season 2.

    When Star Trek first came out, I was meh....
    But it quickly grew on me.

    Trivia:
    Lucille Ball was a major force behind its coming to TV.
    (That explains the episode where Kirk & Spock had to
    eat the candy coming too fast on the conveyor belt.)

    The real clinker in the series was the one which shall not be named.
    (Cap'n Archer piloted that disaster.)

    I thought it had its moments. I thought that Commander Dolim of the Xindi was one of the better villains I've seen. ("Patience is for the dead.") And Jeffrey Combs as Commander Shran was pretty good. (Combs had the distinction of playing two separate roles in the same episode, as Brunt and Weyoun, in DS9.)

    I didn't like that one when it came out, either. But some years later I found I liked it. So who knows.

    Yup. I think it's possible to get a short-term subscription and binge watch it later on. That's what I'll be looking for when it comes out.
