I think after the series enterprise, star trek isn't popular anymore.

Oh, Voyager did more damage then Enterprise has so far. Of course, the Enterprise THEME MUSIC has done more damage than any one of the series...

I dun'know, nothing beat next generation, IMO. It started going downhill from there. If Enterprise keeps on going the way it has, one day IT may become as popular as StarControl.
All we need to do it boost SCs popularity a bit.
Altho, we need a new name so that Accolade can't get rich everytime someone decides to say "StarControl" in a public place.

Step 1) While waiting for UQM 1.0, tell friends about this great game coming out. If friend is trekie, tell them it's just like a really good startrek game only with more aliens that actually look like aliens and not just actors with a quarter of a goodyear stuck to their head.
Step 2) When UQM 1.0 comes out, spam e-mail list with download link and burn copies for all your friends. Bring copies of UQM on a CD to work and play melee on breaks.
Step 3) Follow up. Offer to come over and play melee with them. (Let them win a few times.)
Step 4) Orginize a StarCon-vention and tell all the trekies that that's where all the cool SciFi fans hang out. They will tell all their trekie friends, and eventually everyone will say "So what Enterprise is on. I've got to rescue the Shofixti madens."
Step 5) Big Profits!

I might be minority if I say, but I think Voyager was/is better than Deep Space 9. I really don't like all that religious stuff in DS9. Enterprise is great too Smiley It's shame Finnish TV doesn't show Star Trek.. so need to download everything from internet  :-/

Huh? Star Trek (TOS) is on Wednesdays at 18:50 on SubTV. Or are you stuck on analogue terrestrial wireless reception?

ds9 had a story to tell. and yes, it delt with a more serious, religious nature, but thats what was interesting about it. the prophets, to the bajorians, are there gods. to everyone else, they were aliens, living inside a stable worm hole. now giving the fact, that in the show, they were not in ship warping here and warping there, this opened up the chance that the characters were more detailed. and also that the story arced from one episode to the next. this, to me is better than, new week, new alien, new planet, next, repeat. ds9 was like a novel, new chapters each week. it was like watching a book unfold on the tv and to me, its whats missing from tv today. there needs to story developement, and episodes that relate to last weeks episodes and so on. to say that its anything but good, is to say star control is pure crap. wich it isnt Wink

about enterprise's theme song. if you really listened to the lyrics, could see that it captures gene roddenberrys dream to the tee. it also says alot about our race and how we strive to better ourselves and reach for the stars. i cant believe that everyone, who calls themselves fans of the show and of sci fi, can tell me that it doesnt capture there dream ~DEFIANT

Yes I agree there should be story, but I just don't like the religious stuff in ds9 Smiley Most of the episodes dealing with prophets were usually the worst ones.

Babylon 5 story was much more interesting to me.

Anyway, I don't say DS9 is crap. It's star trek and I like star trek alot. Hopless fan to say..  Grin
