    I've always wanted to love the Animated Series since new but I could never get beyond just liking it.

    A few things I don't care for …

    --- Stories are very slow moving

    --- Actors have a tendency to talk too slow (like an adult reading a bedtime story)

    --- The overuse of the cast talking for most guests and aliens get's tedious --- James Doohan seemed to not even try to disguise his voice.

    --- Animation was awful

    --- Incidental music was great but too repetitive … should have at least made few different action themes.

    --- Many stories are just plain lousy -- see The Infinite Vulcan and Practical Joker

    That said, I still like the series, but I don't love it.

    TNG is my favorite. Then I'd say Voyager Seven of Nine onward, and DS9 Dominion War onward. I'd have a hard time picking.

    I like Enterprise, but it's like apples/oranges to me relative to the postquels.

    In my mind, warts and all, it's "Season 4." And more importantly, it enabled Mego Trek.

    So true. I've always liked the Andorians, from TOS onward.

    I"ve been watching ST TOS daily for a few weeks. People gripe about the decline in quality in season 3, both in writing and budget. Sure, there is "Spock's Brain" which seems nearly Irwin Allen-quality. But there are several good episodes, and a few great ones.

    Overall, TOS is heads and shoulders above its contemporaries and still holds up.

    I never grew fond of any of them, I think Roddenberry's "lack of conflict" manta make it hard for me to relate to anyone on those ships. I tried with every series but eventually just tapped out. I've heard Enterprise got really good in it's later seasons though.

    It did. And honestly, DS9 had conflicts and more layered, ongoing storytelling.
