Hey guys,

I was just wondering what are the three things you most like about HF and why. I filled out a similar quiz for something else on myspace (i live on that site!) and it kinda inspired me to do something like this here.

1. THE GAY/BI CHARACTERS- Being a gay man myself, I've always been frustrated at the lack of same-sex lovin in Trek. When someone told me that there was a gay storyline in HF, I came over and checked it out. I was expecting it to be thrown in our faces, but I was suprised to see the exact opposite. It's handled sensitively and acted very, very well. I definitely can relate to Nevin as he struggles to figure out who he is- I went through that five years ago. Whoever decided to put in gay characters- you've earned my respect!

2. "WHATEVER BERMAN CAN DO, THE FANS CAN DO BETTER"- This has really become my personal motto for the series. Granted that he's not in control of the franchise anymore (thankfully), but Hidden Frontier is so much better than the more recent Trek series (yes, Enterprise- I'm looking right at you). The stories are involving, the characters are well drawn out and its just in general much better. It really goes to show you don't have to have millions of dollars to produce high quality drama.

3. SHELBY AND LEFLER- There's something about their friendship that is just so watchable. Perhaps the actresses, perhaps its the writing, perhaps its both, but either way, I always look forward to their scenes together. I loved "Epitaph" largely because of the friendship between the two women.

"WHATEVER BERMAN CAN DO, THE FANS CAN DO BETTER"


That pretty much sums it up for me. This is applicable on so many levels that this reason is all three of mine.

1. It gave me something I loved doing when the depression was worst.

2. It gave me additional friends and family.

3. I need more than two?

1. The series itself(obviously)carrying forward and not going retro

2. The people I have met on this site with whom have become friends in a short space of time(roll on NYC and the good times RICK! :wink:)

3. The down to earth and not up their own a**e attitude of the crew and cast of the series, who are happy to interface with mere mortals.  NO big fish in small pond scene going on here.

Go h-an mhaith ar fád!

1) Great stories.  I've always said, just tell me a good story, and I'll follow.  And all of you definitely delivered.

2) Great characters.  Everyone had their time to shine, and it showed.  Whether it be reflecting on your decision to transfer off in order for other things to survive, the great friendships and loves that blossomed through the span of the series, or something else, it was always compelling.

3) Leaving me wanting for more.  You guys always made me feel that way when an episode ended.  Bravo.

1.)The Mystery of the Gray, it kept me going through the first season which was a little rough, but I am so glad I did.

2.)Seeing gay characters in Star Trek and that they aren't aliens of the week disguised as something else.

3.)just the writing in general, we got character arcs, mysteries that were developed over seasons, episodes that weren't complete rehashes of previous series(I'm looking at you B&B),  and just a good sense of care behind production for the show.

1. Seeing Star Trek produced

2. Outdoing Berman/Braga without Paramount politics

3. Seeing people I know and who I call friends involved in something they love.

1.  Continuing The Next Generation era of Star Trek.  When I found out that Star Trek was abandoning TNG for a retro movie, I was quite upset.  Especially when they auctioned off EVERYTHING!  It pretty much said "We're done with the TNG era." 

2.  The use of peripheral characters from the "Official" series.  It gave Hidden Frontier continuity with the cannon series.

3.  The Special Effects we're actually pretty impressive.  If you consider it was a bunch of people in their parent's basements churning out epic battle sequences, well done.

1. I actually got to fulfil one of my fantasies and write a Star Trek episode.
2. The "big picture" - character arcs, the Tetrahedrons, Siroc, and peripheral issues like Vrijheid IV's admission to the Federation
3. Dr Henglaar. 'Nuff Said! ;D

1. Being able to meet some new friends, who welcomed me into Los Angeles-area organized Trek fandom with open arms. HF was my gateway drug to the USS Angeles.

2. I got to exercise my weak acting chops a bit long after high school (and that Shakespeare production at church back in 2000).

3. Getting that much-needed Trek fix, when TPTB couldn't do it for me.

Don't forget the props to Eric Busby.  Without S.31 there would be no Korg in Hidden Frontier! :)

A. The best damn Star Trek series I've seen in years that simply proves over & over again that you can have engaging characters & interesting story lines with pulling punches on issues of politics,humanity, romance etc. with bi or gay characters.
B. The series has proven that not only can you have an original Star Trek series with brand new concepts such as the Grey, cool backgrounds but you can do it with out huge budgets & internal studio politics
C. I final get my fix of well rounded characters without cardboard back stories. These are people whom I've gotten know as people. They aren't static but grow & change with time.

1. The exciting plots and sub-plots throughout the series-- the history between Suraak and the El Aurian commander which cropped up. The various plots involving the Tetrahedrons, and the whole situation with the Grey.

2. Despite my complete and utter hetero-ness, I really enjoyed how the gay relationship was more than the lame cardboard acts seen in Voyager, Enterprise, and others. It developed slowly and was realistic, rather than all of a sudden someone is in bed with their co-officer.

3. The personalities given to each character, and how those personalities developed. Dr. Henglaar, the crusty Tellarite is one prime example of this.

Overall, I must say that Hidden Frontiers performed above and beyond what Paramount could do with much less of a budget.

I. The storytelling-it's some of the best I've EVER seen. BAR none!
II. The visual effects-granted it took a bit, but once they got it right, it got SO awesome, and proves that with a little imagination and determination, anything's possible.

AND....
III. My "big sis" Rebecca Wood. Need I say more?

1. The fact that it is fan produced Trek, geared toward fans. That fact speaks volumes.

2. Compelling stories and excellent actors to portray them.

3. A warm and caring group of people I am privileged to call friends.
