You can see Roddenberry’s sticky horny fingers all over this image.

Maybe. I like the contrast of setting up Ilia at first to be very warm and kind of sensual, but then replaced with VGER who was very cold and quirky. My pre-teen self was not quite sticky or horny, but for many the awareness that my formative cinematic crush was a bald Indian cyborg would probably cause all kinds of things about me make sense.

I like that it was very sci-fi, about exploration and first contact with something both alien, as well as sort of trans-human. The subsequent movies were good but I was never very invested in the banter, politics, and revenge they followed up with. Although I did become a fan of TNG.

im all set with tickets to see the 35th anniversary showing of khan this week. don’t think i’ve ever seen it in a theater. excited!

also: best captain? i’d throw down for sisko. at the very least he and jake had the best father-son ( and grandfather! ) relationship on television pretty much ever. ( when i go with an opinion, i go boldly. :smiley_cat: )

for me, voyager squandered too many opportunities. while it’s characters were what made it passable for me, i feel like janeway never really got a proper chance at being truly great. the show itself missed it’s mark.

Plenty of good impulses that he rarely let get the better of him. Certainly the most complex villain they ever had.

DS9 definitely had the best villains, antagonists, and lovable scamps of all the shows.

Quark was all three of these. I’m placing him as best Quark.
