The Best Bits? (Trekkies)
#1
Having spent many years watching Star Trek from the 60's to present day, I was wondering what was your best bit was it an episode or a film or just a moment in time. I have many favourite moments from the very beginning to the present day although I do believe that it has come to an end. You could say they ruined it with all the different shows (Deep space nine etc)

The very first Star Trek, the pilot. Menagerie. After that, the Tribbles.

With ST:NG, my fave show was the one where Picard goes back home after the Borg. Where he and his brother fight in the mud. Patrick Stewart is an excellent actor. Jonathan Frakes, not so much.

My favorite Trek bit is a bit more esoteric and philosophical in nature.

It's the episode(s) or movies where the Kobayashi Maru test is talked about. It deals with how to win in an "unwinnable" situation or test.

I think it's a very good lesson to learn that when you're confined to a specific "system" that is designed so that there is no possible way to win, you in fact cannot win by playing the game "within the system". Instead, you need to step back, take a look at the larger picture, and realize that the deck is stacked against you, and the only way you're going to win is to take action from without the system (not playing by the rules of the system) or [actually change the system] in order to win such a no-win scenario.

There's also the ST:NG one where the aliens they meet speak in terms of a situation. "When the walls fell" and "with sails unfurled". They kidnap Picard and he and the alien captain go down to a planet and fight something and figure each other out.

That one has me thinking a lot. I really liked it. Someday I'll use that in a book.
