Ahh this is just too funny. I loved their early-season antagonism followed by their later-season friendship. It was just.. priceless, and altogether hilarious. You've captured the nature of their friendship beautifully!
Oh yes and pretty good at racket ball to. If he misses though he's gonna be playing alone for a while . I love Jullian too. He's one of My favorite Star Trek Doctors ( Theothers being The EMH and McCoy) He never stops talking and is quite funny. I love his medetation where he exhales a whole bunch of times and then inhales deeply. Kira does not approve of that meditation
oh, the thing is I don't know why they kept making new series, the first one and the second one was okay, but enterpirse, voyager and DS9 is too much out of a franchendize (or whatever it is spelled) also, I don't have anywhere to watch them
well, it's a pretty insatiable fanbase (and i am one of the many). i don't think it's fair to argue that more shows takes too much out of the franchise, especially if each subsequent show manages to bring something new to the table. ds9 certainly did, as it's concept allowed writers to bring forth ideas that arguably couldn't have been done on tos and tng. things like longer story arcs, moral ambiguity, intergalactic politics that weren't entirely federation-focued, etc. with ds9, it's not more of the same thing.
since i didn't watch the shows as they aired, i'm probably not one to talk when it comes to "franchise fatigue", but i would imagine that it didn't truly set in until voyager, and i'm only getting that impression because the show never seemed to reach much of it's potential and it was written weaker than both tng and ds9 were, in my opinion (i think it would have been better if they waited a few years before starting it. i might not agree entirely with the idea that the total sum of shows in a franchise wears it out, but I admit having one franchise remain on the air as long as star trek did would take a lot out of the people creating it).
anyways, even voyager that should have brought something new to the table, given that it was a very survival-based story, rather than cushy Federation exploring. and enterprise, for all it's faults, was based on an interesting, and never-done before premise, within the star trek mythos.
I have to chime in because I'm watching these series on Netflix ($8.00 a month). TOS I saw when I was about 14yrs old and stayed in love with it. TNG I saw when it aired but stopped after the 4th season (got tired of it). Didn't watch DS9 or Enterprise, except about 6 eps total out of them.
Now here's the spin and it's all due to Neflix. This year I've watched all of TOS again (LOVE IT).
The Voyager, loved Capt. Janeway who became more the mother of her crew since they were on that 75yr journey. I cherished the main love couple, Neelix, and B'Lana Torris! (LOVED IT)!
Enterprise was next. The end of the 2nd season, 3rd, and some of the 4th WAS AMAZING! The Xindi project should've been a movie. Genius concept of the Xindi alien life in 5 main forms: insect, fish, lion, reptilian, and humanoid. Brilliant & beautiful special effects with a very tense & action based storyline.
DS9 is last but not least. We have very complex personalities, political uprisings, strong spiritual connection with the B'jorons (spelling?), and a very strong, interesting, and surprising Commander Sisko (to become Capt. Sisko). At first when it aired, the different races scared me away. I literally hated the Ferangi. But now I find the Cardascians and Ferangi have talked and bartered their way into my heart. There are a lot of personal exchanges and twists to the aliens' different personalities. The show can be dark sometimes too---everything doesn't work out all the time.
Hopefully, wherever you are, you can grab DVDs or some kind of downstreaming, etc. to enjoy these shows.
