You're right JOHNSANKEY but you're also wrong. This was a pioneering show that related many of it's episodes to the current events of the mid 60's i.e. 1966,67,68. They worked with social issues like racism and the beginnings of women's rights and consequently the sexual revolution which means they had to present them in ways that didn't infuriate too many people. This meant the story lines had to be watered down to some degree and yes it made some episodes seem a little anemic. You also have to take into account the level of technology at their disposal. I mean, really, when you consider that Bones had to use a salt shaker with blinking lights in it for a medical scanner I think they did a pretty good job of creating a fifty year franchise.

To one who grew up with The Next Generation (TNG), the original Star Trek is quite a disappointment. Episode after episode features a teenage boy's wet dream of a female who tries to seduce the captain, doesn't develop plot ideas beyond a trivial level, and relies on mysterious equipment failures to keep the show dragging on until moments before the end. TNG is better produced, has more and better actors, and its plots have far more depth and variety.
