So, related question - I want to do a Trek binge. In order. Does anyone know the correct order for such a thing? I want to include the movies.

Also, can you get TAS online legally or do I have to torrent that shit?
Turanj - Sat, 31 Mar 2018 21:04:37 EST ID:DStF7Vev No.64240 Ignore Report Quick Reply

In my mind there are two ways to do it. I have done it both ways and find them both pretty decent. You can go TOS>TAS>TNG/DS9/VOY mixed together as they aired>ENT


I usually do it the first way to be honest but I always watch the TNG/DS9/VOY block in order. There are a couple crossover episodes but it also helps keep things fresh going between the series like that. Aside from watching a single episode here and there I almost never just watch a single series. Once I get in a mood I'll do it all at once. I've watched the whole franchise all the way through at least once a year for the last 10 years or so and I most often opt for option A. I think it just flows better instead of starting with ENT and then going into TOS.

As for the films I would recommend watching them as they come chronologically mixed in with the shows as well. Its all in the link above.

Most people just watch them in order of release. All of the TOS movies are based after the series I believe. They'd probably be best to watch back to back. Same with TNG, watch the full series then the movies.

Or it would probably be pretty interesting to try doing it in chronological order like the guy above me suggests. Maybe I should try that when I finally decide to watch them all again.

I think that is the right way to do it the first time IMO. Just do the TNG/DS9/Voy together and not separately. Chronological is cool to view a couple times but I think production order is the best way to go especially for the first time. ENT>(I guess Disco, ugh)>TOS just doesn't transition that well IMO. Its fine if you have seen prod order a few times but not great for a first full watch.

That would be greatly appreciated, fellow Anon.

Yeah, so I just started watching TOS since, well, it seems the logical choice. Gotta say The Cage is a weird one. Sort of like watching Proto-Trek. Spock has emotions...Pike is Captain. Majel Barrett is Number One??? Fucking crazy! And Pike is basically an angry asshole, especially when compared to the cooler headed Picard. Anyway, it was a strange watch. On to The Man Trap now and some good old Kirk and the boys...

So, almost done with The Man Trap from TOS, and I gotta say, the Netflix rip of TOS is really fucking nice. It looks like it was possibly remastered from the original negs, because the colors are fantastic. It actually looks better than broadcast. It actually shows how much work and detail they put into TOS sets and costumes. The little details show up nice and sharp. The exterior shots of Enterprise orbiting a planet look fucking great. Lot of high quality work on the mattes and compositing and shit. For 1960s tech, it is really top notch. Very much enjoying the Netflix Trek product here.

I didn't know that Trek was on Netflix. Is this new? Possibly a part of the deal they had with CBS?

Do they have all the series?

Well, just discovered that Netflix has ALL the series except of course STD. Even TAS.

What they don't have, oddly is any of the movies. For that you have to hit Amazon and rent everything but the JJ Trek movies, which of course are free...

Seriously, TOS looks gorgeous on Netflix. They pixel scrubbed the fuck out of it. Really nice. I am a bit worried that TNG and VOY will look like shit next to it. Especially if they use shitty rips from video tape and not remastered shots from the negs.

No but it did foreshadow something related to that. Unless you're talking about an episode in S2

The one I'm talking about isn't a great episode but when you realise it's foreshadowing really well it's pretty cool.

Watching TNG episode The Offspring and they point out that Data cant use contractions ie say can't instead of cannot. Why would Data, one of the most advanced pieces of machinery in the federation be incapable of using a very simple language tool? That's the silliest thing I've encountered in all of Star Trek.

You don't think his neural net would degrade after two years in the hard vacuum of interstellar space, being pelted constantly from cosmic rays? If you've ever had to reset your router for instance, it was likely because of one of the very few errant cosmic rays that was able to penetrate the natural deflector field generated by the earth
