First came SPACE PATROL with Ed Kemmer along with TOM CORBETT, SPACE CADET. A couple of years later came ROCKY JONES. The 50's laid the path for STAR TRK in the 60's. The 70's foundered a bit before the break of STAR WARS and the reserection of STAR TREK NG.

Today the genre has become as commonplace as westerns were a generation before. ROCKY JONES stands out I think as the real beginning of a SciFi series that appealed to adults as well as kids. I enjoy rewatching just about ALL of the series I loved as a youngster!

Like most series, Voyager had its good episodes and its bad ones. I found it weird when one of the main characters got killed off, but their vessel had encountered an alternate-universe version of the Voyager, and, when it had a problem, we got the alternate version joining our crew as a replacement... was that ever mentioned again?

Jeri Ryan played a major character in season two of Bosch on Amazon recently, and seemed pretty well preserved. The benefits of being a cyborg, I suppose!

Gee, I don't know, Custer. Miss Ryan appears to be "all natural, no preservatives added!" Very Happy

Oh -- and then there's Lost in Space. Don't own it, don't want it, and it will never get off the bottom of this list. It's the Gilligan's Island of science fiction.

Uh, what's the picture? I don't see anything.

... sitting on top of my monitor right now, there's a little 4" figure of B-9 the robot (when you press down on the top of his dome, he says "Warning! Warning!"), right next to a 4" Robby. So there -- I'm not a total loser.

My Robby and G.U.N.T.E.R. Model B-9 are on display with the other droids from Star Wars and from The Black Hole as they are all in the same scale (3.75 = 6 feet.)

I feel just the opposite about VOYAGER. I don't like that series, mainly because Kate Mulgrew's character just rubs me the wrong way.

My top two Star Trek likes are TOS and TNG.

In my experience that is the deciding factor for many.

Kate is a unique actress and either you like her or you don't.

I don't suppose it was any different for 'Ryan's Hope'.

My favorites to rewatch.

All of Trek (of course). While I love them all and have watched them all many times, I think I find Voyager the most enjoyable rewatch.

Firefly (still upset it was cancelled)
Farscape
Stargate SG-1
nuBSG
Fringe
Stargate Atlantis
Andromeda
Earth: Final Conflct
The 4400

I own all these and really enjoy pulling them out and experiencing them again.

I own the X-Files but don't know if that's really considered SCI-FI.

This fine post is one of only 23 extremely well-written comments from All Sci-Fi member Yanks from back in April 2017.

The last one from Yanks was posted just a few weeks later in April 2017 . . . and we haven't heard from this member since! Shocked

Why do great members like this suddenly disappear? I don't get it . . . Sad
