Hello, internet!

Hi, I'm Orgar. Apparently, I'm so unused to communicating my thoughts like a normal person that I created three, like, full-fledged drafts of this post before I decided on this one...
yeah, I'm an odd one. But aren't we all?

Loners' Club, huh? At first, it seems counterintuitive, but I hope I'll like it here.

it's better than star wars.

I don't want to start a massive argument, but i prefer star wars, maybe because i have never seen star trek that much, or because i find the environments in star wars beautiful  /hippie

I find the elements of fantasy and softer science fictional elements in Star Wars help its more classical themes of good and evil as ultimately opposed. Star Trek is more of a harder and more morally complex universe, but it works well for addressing separate issues. (You can also look at their creators; Gene Roddenberry has explicitly stated that he was addressing any number of cultural issues when he created The Original Series, which created Star Trek in a certain manner vs. George Lucas, who had this grandiose idea of swords and sorcery in a very space age sort of world.)

Point being, let's not fight. Both are cool, for different reasons. /hug2

Welcome Orgar.
I'm pretty much out of my science-fiction phase, but at one time, in my mid to late teens, I was a big classic Star Trek fan.  It was one of those rare series I was actually "in love" with.  I was very much an admirer of Spock.
Yes, I liked the social and psychological themes in Star Trek and still regard a number of the episodes as classics, works of art.  Return of the Archons, The Menagerie, The Savage Curtain, The Enemy Within, "Miri", Turnabout Intruder, And the Children Shall Lead...just to name a few. Just some absolutely fabulous performances, some very, very offbeat.
I don't know.  Maybe the culture's changed too much for younger people to get all the nuances, but to me, they just don't make TV like this anymore.
