Blog #3: The Next Trek Series

I have some ideas for what the next Trek series should be about. Apparently Trek will be returning to the small screen in the next few years. It is time for Star Trek to return to the small screen. We're going on 7 years now with no new Trek TV. Here are a few of my ideas:
- I know they did a book series but I would love to see Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis return to TV in a USS Titan series. I met Frakes last summer at the Calgary con and I told him then that he should get the next Trek series and he replied "I couldn't agree more!". It would be great to see those characters return with maybe a few guest appearances from their TNG friends...
-  My second idea would be a series about a young Captain Picard as he commands the USS Stargazer. I've always been interested in this idea as there have been several references to his time on the Stargazer during the run of TNG. I know Picard served on the Stargazer for 22 years and that he took command of the ship after …

Blog #2: TNG Season 8?

Blog #2: TNG Season 8? A person should not dwell on the past but sometimes you cannot help but do so. TNG ended with season 7, and in my opinion it ended on a very sad note. There were only a handful of episodes from that season that I actually liked, and they are: - "Parallels" Ep 11 (Worf finds himself randomly shifting between alternate realities) This was a fun episode and I like the idea of alternate realities. Neat to see a possible romance between Worf and Troi. . - "The Pegasus" Ep 12 (Commander Riker's former Captain boards the Enterprise to retrieve the USS Pegasus. Features Terry O'Quinn as Admiral Eric Pressman). This episode was the best of the season. O'Quinn was excellent in his role. Great to see Frakes shine as Riker. Final episode with the Romulans as the big bad, wish they had had Andreas Katsulas as 'Tomalok' on this episode, but it wasn't meant to be. - "Homeward" Ep 13 (Worf's human foster brother violates the …

Blog #1: Best Star Trek Episodes

Blog #1: Best Star Trek Episodes I've been watching re-runs of Star Trek: The Next Generation lately and currently I am watching the 3rd season. Season 3 is the best of that series for sure with many great episodes, and thus I decided to do a list of my top 6 Star Trek episodes of all time for the entire franchise. They are as follows: #6: 'The Inner Light' (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 5) Picard is scanned by a probe, collapses on the bridge and awakes on an alien world where he is a different man. He lives out his life as this man, is married and has children, has grand children and all is happy. For him his life on the Enterprise becomes a distant memory. He even teaches himself to play the flute. By the end of the episode he realizes that this is not his life, and that this world and his 'family' actually died a thousand years earlier. He awakes on the bridge where only 25 minutes has passed but the memories of his years spent on this planet stay with hi…
