Re: Babylon 5 vs Star Trek
OK, this is an old thread, but I have a few questions...
First of all, sorry because of my broken English...
I am Star Trek fan, mostly because of idea of the future, and that positive view of everything that comes.
Another thing is the absence of religion and money, I like that "Zeitgeist" way of thinking, something like Nikola Tesla talk about a hundred years ago...
I like The Next Generation because I was just 8, or 9 years old, and I remember, I was waiting midnight to watch that great beginning with:"Captain's log...", great music, and scientific approach in the storyline.
Then the similar thing with the Voyager, and after all, disappointment with Deep Space Nine. DS9 was sooo boring, I could not watch more than 15, or 16 episodes. So static, stories are full with religion, money, and all those shallow thematics I do not like. It is not representing future, it is the same as our present.
Then, the most interesting thing in Star Trek is thematics with scientific problems, for example two Enterprise ships at the same time, then time travel, strange physics, and things like that.
Before I ask the question, I would like to apologize because of my English, and then if I do not understand SF very well, but that is just my opinion, and my taste.
I never watched Babylon 5, I am now preparing to start watching, I do not like complex human drama in this kind of TV shows, I like Star Trek because of scientific approach, and stories related to the space and science, so my biggest question is:
Am I going to like Babylon 5?
