Unless someone tries to say that Crusher was the best doctor. That's just wrong. :P

Hell, I like Enterprise now quite a bit more than I did as it aired.

It's that Archer boy, isn't it? :P

What is it with people thinking that I have an affair with Archer? :laugh: (You're the second person who accuses me of that, lol!) I just find him attractive, that's all. YOUNGER me would have fallen for him, absolutely. But now? I want for my husband to be short, bald, grumpy and dorky, thank you very much. :P

Oh yes, he is quite attractive. Definitely! I enjoy looking at him, and I know a lot of folks who are VERY interested in him. (The Bakulettes have adopted me these days - I seem to be the only guy who likes Archer/Bakula, and they're all really nice to me, it's really cute.) He is my second favorite main captain. He has his flaws, sure, but younger me would have been ALL OVER HIM, I used to LOVE guys like him. My taste has changed now but I still find him interesting in a "yes daaaayummmm niiice" way. :happy:

 

And HEY Jean-Luc enjoys looking at attractive gentlemen (and ladies) as well so there's that hey it's not just ME here yo, why is it always ME who gets accused of looking at other guys, JEAN-LUC PAINTED A LADY IN A STATE OF UNDRESS HELLO and don't tell me "that was just for the sake of art" :P

As my wife and I always say, there is no sin in looking... :angel_not: :P

A beautiful person is just a fleeting treat for the eyes, that’s all.   It doesn’t mean you have to make any heart wrenching, life-altering choices or anything, just... enjoy the view.  :cool:

Exactly. :happy: I just look. And with me, a lot of "looking" is also simply done for science aka fan fic inspiration. Jean-Luc is the only guy I look at and think "YAAAASSSSSS". :inlove:

Even an old fart like me can look, too.   Truly means nothing; more of a Pavlovian/biological response than anything else.  

Besides, I’m too old (and too in love) to have any midlife crises... :inlove:

My entire EXISTENCE is a crisis - I don't need a midlife one on top of it. :laugh:  Nah. I'm too old-fashioned in ways of love. I choose ONE guy. For YEARS. Or decades. And that's where it's at for me. Why would I want anyone other than Jean-Luc Picard? I mean come ON. He's perfect because he's not. :inlove:

But of course. Nothing wrong with looking. And I have yet to have a mid-life crisis. Might have one, I dunno, but I've always pretty much accepted that time only goes one way.

Not looking to be adopted by the Bakulettes necessarily, but there are two. That's an attractive guy.

If I quantum-leaped and found myself staring into his reflection in the mirror?  Well, I wouldn't complain...:laugh:

Celebrating 30 Years of STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION today with an 3-minute extended TV Promo for the world premiere of the pilot episode ENCOUNTER AT FARPOINT, which I will watch tonight with my family. I have to say I love FARPOINT, specially Dennis McCarthy score and DeForest Kelley cameo as Admiral McCoy, with another winning script by Gene and DC Fontana.
 
"STARDATE 41153.7 : 75 years have passed since the days in which the original crew of the USS Enterprise explored the unknown wonders of the universe.....Now, a spectacular new Galaxy starship, 8 times larger and light years ahead of technology, has been designed......."

Shame De Kelley didn't get a brief scene with Crusher, passing the baton from CMO to CMO. Where do the years go by?

Last summer there were a few nods to TNG including a local version of Comic Con for all things TNG and beyond. They even have produced some ships through EagleMoss. They're not big enough, or to scale with the old ones, but they're out there.

TNG as comfort food? Maybe it was. It actually encouraged play, role play, and stories for me in high school. TNG and then DS9 did more in college, and the rest of that era inspired scifi writing, stories, ideas and friendships. The conventions we went to inspired dreams, and meeting the actors was priceless. Most of them were good sports, even when we were ay our most annoying, asking questions they clearly had been asked thousands of times.

The cons are still where I find like minds. Heh. They are like a universe of people similar to us. Fans.

Star Trek and family. Yeah. They're all still into it, and have even embraced Star Wars of recent times. Some of the familiars even hav liked Discovery (but I haven't seen it, but it's not a boycott thing, it's financial. I can't afford CBS all access and also to get copies on bluray later), and also The Orville. Ut us very much 'millennial Trek' for some relatives and their younger friends, another generation.

From what little I have seen, it seems a sequel set 30 years after Picard, but is pretending to be set 10 years before TOS for some reason. Confusing!

Anyway, TNG is like sitting back to watch an old familiar story, and liking it for the quotable moments.
