Why Star Trek: TNG, is Totally Awesome


I go all nerdy now. Why is this show only considered suitable for the nerds? This is an amazing show. Nerds might not even like this. There's not much action, techie stuff. It's about people of all sorts of cultures and personalities talking and resolving their conflicts. This is a show for social people!

    Thank you very much for posting this. You really summed up the series beautifully.

    Yeah, I don't get how so many people find it "normal" to like Star Wars, but its somehow "nerdy" and "geeky" to like Star Trek, when Star Trek is educational, it had moral and social lessons, and it just makes your think.

    Thank you for sharing!
    Is this still revelant?

    My roommate in grad school was an expert on Star Trek, both TNG and the original series. It was scary how much detail he recalled.

    You should be proud
    And i am intimidated by the series.
    Everyone's praising it saying it's basically God's work. But what if i don't like it. What would i do with myself? Die? That's one option

      I didn't get into it until 30s. I avoided it deliberately... maybe sneak a glance at a show here and there when I was a teen. But it was stereotyped as so nerdy that I didn't want to be any part of it. I didn't want to be thought of as a "nerd".

      Aww yeah i really don't get it. Why is star trek considered nerdy?
      Because space? Geometric objects?
      What's going on here this is a conspiracy
