My 5 Unpopular Star Trek Opinions

Any fan of Star Trek worth his or her gold-pressed latinum holds the same opinion on certain facets of the Trek franchise: Kirk is a big ol’ pimp; Wrath of Khan is the best of the movies; The Best of Both Worlds is the best of the TNG TV show; Janeway’s hair bun was a miracle of modern science; Wesley Crusher was an abomination and Bearded Riker was way better than Clean Shaven Riker.

So sit back, set phasers to stun and engage your way past the jump to see my unpopular Star Trek opinions.

The Daily Nerdgasm: All My Captains

All 5 Star Trek TV show captains…William Shatner (Capt. Kirk, ST:TOS), Patrick Stewart (Capt. Picard, ST:TNG), Avery Brooks (Capt. Sisko, ST:DS9), Kate Mulgrew (Capt. Janeway, ST:VOY), and Scott Bakula (Capt. Archer, ST:ENT)…were gathered together on one stage for a Q&A at the Destination Star Trek convention, the first Star Trek convention in the UK in around a decade. That pic makes my inner Trekkie (and yes I am a Trekkie not a Trekker so screw anyone who has a problem with it) squeal with delight and feel really bummed that I couldn’t be there.
