Unit 2: Why Star Trek? > Star Trek and the Business of Cable Television Starlog

#StarTrekCourse

For this Unit we have been watching the pilots of all the series. Here is how we rank them and what we think of them.

3“The Cage.”
Star Trek: The Original Series
running: 1966-1969
playing 2265
remark: Shown on Network Television; dominant male episode. Number 1 is female, but not seen as female by Captien Pike, other head players are male, it is that I have seen more StarTrek, because this pilot is not talking to me and I’m not interested to watch a second episode.
2“Where No Man Has Gone Before.”
Star Trek: The Original Series
running: 1966-1969
playing 2265
remark: First episode with Captien Kirk, still mainly male, beter then The Cage.
1“Encounter at Far Point.”
Star Trek: The Next Generation
running: 1987-1994
playing 2365
remark: In this pilot the new enterpice and his crew members are introduced to us and how they knew each other in the past / what the relations are.
We also get introduceted to Q and how the Q think about people, people need to prove otherwise.
6“Emissary.”
Star Trek: Deep Space 9
running 1993-1999
playing: 2365
remark: The beginning of a new job, but first closing old life and grive. Again dealing with an other life form the thinks human is crual.
4“Caretaker.”
Star Trek: Voyager
running 1995-2001
playing 2365
remark: A leap in time and space, we jump 75.000 light years because a caretaker wants to pay for his depts to a planet. The caretaker dies and technology destroyed.
In the mean time the Voyager and there enemy form home have to become friends to travel back home for 75 years. Two people from far away want to leave far away and travel to earth
5“Broken Bow.”
Star Trek: Enterprise
running 2001-2005
playing 2151
remark: Nice to see a serie made in 2001 but is playing before Star Trek the Original Series, you see older machinery but the vesion is newer 😉
“The Vulcan Hello.”
Star Trek: Discovery
running since 2017
playing 2256
We watched 3 episodes, it is adictiev, but not in the line of what was in the old series. Personally I prefer the older series
I did not see that this serie play’s before The next generation, it looks that is play’s. From the Klingons plot I got the idea is was behnd Voyager
