Is Old STAR TREK Best?

I think it is. So does Mark A. Altman at, the site that tracks the progress of slated director J.J. Abrams' new STAR TREK movie. It's rumored he will recast the original crew to create a prequel to the old show.

"Ironically, while it’s nearly impossible to watch Next Generation or Deep Space Nine these days, both which seem hopelessly dated relics of the bland 90s; Classic Trek, with its 60s fuelled New Frontier zeal, despite its Styrofoam sets and dated visual effects, remains amazingly potent largely because of the inter-personal dynamics of its troika of leading men; Kirk, Spock and McCoy. It’s because of them I’d rather watch the worst episode of Classic Trek than the best of Enterprise or Voyager."
