Haven't met him, but I agree with the Wesley/Will differences

I played poker against him in a hotel room at MacWorld NY in either 2000 or 2001. He sucked at that too.

Edit: Wil Wheaton, the guy, is by all accounts awesome. I meant Wesley Crusher sucked, and also that Wil Wheaton was bad at poker.

What is Wheaton's Law?

STTNG 4 LIFE, but Wesley was the weakest part of the early seasons. I'm entertained by Wil's low key career roles; Eureka and the Guild wouldn't be the same without him.

That's dedication, and considering at least one of my tattoos, I can understand and appreciate that level of fandom

Yeah, sorry I don't wield mod hammers very often. But I feel like if I need to swing the hammer, it's usually for violations of Wheaton's law.

No worries about what it was about and I chopped out the parts of the thread that were not needed for history.

YES! DS9 had by far the best characterizations, and fewest number of annoying/poorly written characters. Garak and Odo were probably the best supporting characters seen in any Trek series, and the Sisko family dynamic was the most believable of any portrayed in Trek.

All that said, Picard will always be my captain.

No way!  The original, even with Shatner's cheesy acting, was the trailblazer. Maybe I'm an old fart, but I like it best by far, though I did like TNG. Ironically wasn't a DS9 fan. Each his own!   :)

I think which Star Trek you like depends on which one was in syndication when you were in college. For me it was TNG and Technobowl in the dorm room.

Just to be different,

Firefly for ever!!

 ;D

Wesley always bugged me.  A smart kid with no confidence gets high honors?  Not likely.

Um TNG was in pre-syndication while I was in college. Had a girlfriend who was a huge fan so I saw all of it. In reality Jon, I'm probably more of a classic as well. I did watch DS9 and liked Odo,  the rest was just kinda OK

A celebrity that probably has more money than you (or me) who's bad at poker: lucky stiff.  ;D

If we go by that logic, then Enterprise and the new series are the "best"...

Haha!  OK.  I'll do my best to abide by Wheaton's Law.  I assume Will Wheaton of Big Bang fame.

No. Wil Wheaton, the homebrewer.
