Voyager hands down

roving bandit14 Mar 2017 10:40 a.m. PST

Voyager, didn't really connect with any of the characters, though Tuvok could have been better served on a different show.

pmwalt14 Mar 2017 10:52 a.m. PST

I didn't even know they had an animated series …

Enterprise by far

Voyager was really, really, really, really meh.

CorroPredo14 Mar 2017 10:59 a.m. PST

I really, really detest the next generation.

skinkmasterreturns14 Mar 2017 11:06 a.m. PST

Never watched Voyager. Wasnt DS9 also reffered to as the shopping mall in space?

skinkmasterreturns14 Mar 2017 11:08 a.m. PST

Next Gen had some cool stories and character development. It also had some really meh episodes which at best were "feel good".

awalesII14 Mar 2017 11:13 a.m. PST

I thought they all had a few good episodes and a lot of really bad ones.

Sci-Fi is like Saturday Night Live, you have to sift through the crap to find the gems. And if you find 'em in the wild then so much the better.

dwight shrute14 Mar 2017 11:20 a.m. PST

I also hate next generation , not a single redeeming feature .

USAFpilot14 Mar 2017 11:41 a.m. PST

Voyager, it looked like science fiction but was really a soap opera.

Voyager and Enterprise, the latter simply for being the worst for crashing cannon.

Having said that, I'd rather watch any of them (until my eyes bled) than the new films.

All the series' had trashy episodes TOS and Next Gen as much as DS9 but at least TOS and Next Gen were (mostly) original in what they did.

Voyager: Causality Loop

Personal logo Herkybird Supporting Member of TMP14 Mar 2017 12:41 p.m. PST

Voyager for me too, but having not watched the animated series that judgement is provisional!

Crow Bait14 Mar 2017 12:43 p.m. PST

Voyager was the worse. Followed closely by Enterprise.

Personal logo Jlundberg Supporting Member of TMP14 Mar 2017 12:49 p.m. PST

Enterprise followed by Voyager

Coyotepunc and Hatshepsuut14 Mar 2017 12:50 p.m. PST

Everything but the Original Serirs and the Animated Series? If it didn't have Kirk, Spock, abd Uhura, it just wasn't Star Trek.

The Beast Rampant14 Mar 2017 12:54 p.m. PST

I was never into ST, though I have watched varying amounts of everything but Enterprise.

Next Gen had some really good episodes. And some laughably stupid ones. Mostly, it took itself way too seriously, which always makes failures ten times worse.

When Voyager came out, I sat down and watched the first three or four episodes. It was more of a chance than it deserved.

As a prequel, I'd hopes Enterprise would give the whole thing a much-needed fresh start. But it seemed even less inspired than Voyager.

But having seen more of it, I'll go with Voyager.

McKinstry Fezian14 Mar 2017 1:15 p.m. PST

Enterprise then Voyager.

Mister Tibbles14 Mar 2017 1:23 p.m. PST

Voyager. After watching Enterprise on Netflix many years after the series had originally run, I came to enjoy Enterprise, especially the 2nd year on.

BTW I watched all the ST series, every good and painful episode, on Netflix in original order, usually a couple episodes a night. It took a few years, but gave me a good perspective on ST.

There were other Star Trek shows after the original series?

PaddySinclair14 Mar 2017 2:14 p.m. PST

Voyager. When it was good it was okay, but when it was bad it was awful.

Enterprise then Voyager--but in fairness, if Enterprise improved after Season One, I wasn't there to see. In fact, if it improved in the second half of Season One, I think I was already gone.

wrgmr114 Mar 2017 2:47 p.m. PST

Voyager, I liked Enterprise.

Jakar Nilson14 Mar 2017 3:15 p.m. PST

Voyager followed by Enterprise.

John Leahy14 Mar 2017 3:17 p.m. PST

Definitely Voyager. It was pretty poor. Enterprise actually got much better going into its last two seasons. I believe the ratings were improved for the last season but the show had already been cancelled by then.

Personal logo Patrick R Supporting Member of TMP14 Mar 2017 3:20 p.m. PST

Voyager was one of the most promising setups for a series in years, yet it ended up with a completely neutered storyline, uninspired aliens, very few good characters as all the attention went to the Doctor and Seven, not to mention the worst Trek episodes ever.

JMcCarroll Inactive Member14 Mar 2017 3:29 p.m. PST

DS9 except for the Dominion War. So Voyager.

Buckeye AKA Darryl14 Mar 2017 3:44 p.m. PST

Original. I…just…can't…watch…it.

Personal logo 20thmaine Supporting Member of TMP14 Mar 2017 4:18 p.m. PST

Never seen Enterprise, so it'll have to be Voyager.

The G Dog Fezian Inactive Member14 Mar 2017 4:40 p.m. PST

Enterprise. Because the Temporal War sucked. Or will suck. Or does suck. See!

The caveat is that the 'Mirror' universe episodes were very good and allowed for exploring new Star Trek ground without totally wrecking canon.

Voyager gives it a run for it's money. There's some of Voyager that I like, but some parts…nope!

Props to the Animated Series for giving us the closest were likely to get to Starfleet Battles Kzin, Federation freighters. Oh and the return of Cyrano Jones and the Tribbles! Lays the ground work for the best moment of DS9.

Andrew Preziosi Supporting Member of TMP14 Mar 2017 5:58 p.m. PST


However, TNG had many good episodes to balance the poor/bad ones AND, IMHO probably the best single episode of the entire ST universe… Yesterday's Enterprise!

Stryderg14 Mar 2017 7:33 p.m. PST

And I kind of liked Voyager. Truly loathe TNG. It looked like they split the personalities of the original series characters and used that as the basis of the TNG characters. And the bridge looked like a hotel lobby, which is fine for a hotel, not a warship. And the holodeck…"Hey, let's do a 1920's gangster movie, IN SPAAAAAAACE"

RudyNelson14 Mar 2017 8:08 p.m. PST

The animated series was not on long enough. There was no reason for it not to have more episodes. All had ones or unfinished plot lines.

I have to wonder what criteria you are using to judge them. Plot, characters, stories, integration with other series. Each of those may have a different worse. They all introduced new characters races and species. Everyone can list a worse and someone else based on the criteria can support a different worst.

Kevin C Supporting Member of TMP14 Mar 2017 8:40 p.m. PST

The Animated Series and Voyager.

Captain Avatar14 Mar 2017 8:54 p.m. PST

I never liked next gen aside from the Picard character. Very original and much different from Kirk which allowed the series to break out from the shadow of TOS. But I never liked the design of the ships. I'll take a TOS Federation Heavy Cruiser and a Klingon D7 going at it any day.

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP14 Mar 2017 9:01 p.m. PST

Haven't we done this before? At least 47 times?

Worst: ToS
Best: Voyager

Cyrus the Great14 Mar 2017 10:15 p.m. PST

Enterprise by a wide margin.

OldGrenadier at work15 Mar 2017 4:13 a.m. PST

Enterprise, then Voyager. I've been a Trek fan since the early 70's, when TOS was first in syndication.

Also, I rather like the new movies.

Lucius15 Mar 2017 6:30 a.m. PST

TNG was the worst. Not any individual episode, but the accumulated self-righteous smugness of the Federation made me want to root for its destruction.

Mike Target15 Mar 2017 6:33 a.m. PST

An awful lot of all of them that I found dull and/or rediculous, bt every now and then I'd find a bit I liked. Except with Enterprise….
