More on Star Trek

From a Usenet post by Michael Urban:

As a result, the two best Star Trek movies in the last ten years
have been “Galaxy Quest” and “Master and Commander”. There’s
something wrong there.

I must admit I haven’t seen Master and Commander, but GalaxyQuest is a darn fine movie.

On a personal aside, I was a little suspicious of the “last ten years” reference, since I liked Star Trek VI a lot. Then I looked it up, and realized that said movie premiered just a few months shy of fourteen years ago. When did I get so old?

BTW, I watched the first half of “Encounter at Farpoint” today. I was prepared for the first few episodes of TNG to be a little raw and unpolished compared to the show at its stride, but I was completely shocked at just how bad this episode seemed.
