In 2009, this movie came out that was a reboot of a popular and well-loved franchise. I'm sure you've heard of it: Star Trek, directed by J.J. Abrams. Up until this film's premiere, I had never watched any of the Star Trek series nor had I seen the other movies. Sure...I had some exposure to it. I knew of the characters - Kirk, Spock, Picard, Seven of Nine, Uhura; knew some of the famous lines; basically, knew enough to get by thru other shows I watched and friends I had.

My friends took me to see the movie in 2009. I followed it up with the films that premiered in 2013 and 2016.

Then, I met this kid in the play I was in this spring who goes by the name of Danny. His knowledge of the Star Trek universe superseded anything I had ever seen before. He is a walking encyclopedia. He also appeared quite bothered that my only exposure to the show had been through the rebooted films. He convinced me to watch the first episode of Enterprise and "The City at the Edge of Forever" from the Original Series.

Can you guess which one I loved more?


Thanks to Netflix, Nick and I have been able to start the Original Series from the beginning and I am absolutely loving it. It's classic nostalgia and surprisingly progressive for it's time. Favorite characters: Yeoman Janice Rand and Spock.
