What's Wrong with Star Trek?

In yet another attempt to alienate a sizable number of our readers (alienate--what a fine word), I must pass along this fine little piece from io9. Entitled "The Worst Thing Star Trek Did to Science Fiction," it explains one of the many, many, many reasons Star Trek really kind of sucks. Yeah, you heard me.

There are many things that annoy us about science fiction: godlike beings, lazy time-travel paradoxes, actions that don't have consequences... but luckily, there's one thing that epitomizes all of them: the reset button. Whenever the unthinkable happens, you can be pretty sure science fiction will unthink it. Click through for the many evils of the reset button. [more...]

Actually, I like the original series, but the spin-offs suck bad. I see that one commenter on io9 is of the same opinion as myself: "Star Trek has sucked since they started having star ships with carpeting." Yeah, whose dumb idea was that? Spaceships should have exposed bulkheads and pipes and slime dripping off the walls.
