    Plan on watching it over the summer when nothing is on at night.

    I have all the series (except Voyager, not sure if I should DL it), and all the movies.

    Whats the right order to watch them in?

    ENT > TOS > TOS movies > TNG > TNG Movies > DS9 > VOY would make sense to me

    disagree; i'd say ent should go at the end (or before voy). while it does take place before everything else, it still, in a sense, references the others quite frequently, so it's probably best if you've seen those first.

    is voyager even worth the 60GB download? ENT looks really good, been watching some reruns when it comes on Scifi at 5.

    I don't like your plan. Watching enterprise first gives away a lot in the other series. I'd watch them in the order they were made. :o

    *sigh* Yes, it is, as much as I hate to admit it. Maybe you don't need to download the last season, though.

    I watched them in the following order:

    - Next Generation, Voyager, Enterprise


    Next up, DS9. No intention of watching TOS.

    Total fail. Not only is it what started the whole thing, but the other shows all reference it so much that you're crazy not to give it a chance.

    Perhaps, but it's getting a little dated. Not to say I can't watch a show without great sfx, but I'm going to have a tough time staying hooked.

    i agree that the show is pretty boring, but it pays off in getting references later.

    that said, someone should make a list of tos episodes that you can skip and not lose anything...

    I dont care about downloading it, just wondering :dunno:

    So basically, watch them in the order they were made?

    What about the movies?

    I just meant the last season really detracts from the show. It was really good through season 6, then turned stupid.

    That's what I say. Each one references the ones before it.

    Fuck it. Minus well watch them all, in order.

    So... I lied. I cheated. I bribed men to cover the crimes of other men. I am an accessory to murder. But the most damning thing of all... I think I can live with it. And if I had to do it all over again - I would. Garak was right about one thing: a guilty conscience is a small price to pay for the safety of the Alpha Quadrant. So I will learn to live with it.

    Because I can live with it.

    I CAN live with it.

    Computer - erase that entire personal log

    The movies have no impact on the series right? So it doesnt matter if I watch them (or when)

    You don't have to watch them, they're not connected to the shows' storylines. You should watch them just because they're cool, but it doesn't matter when.
