Star Trek: The Next Generation came at a time when Star Trek: The Original Series had already tasted success, and the animated series too was passé. Those who grew up knowing Star Trek: The Next Generation as the bible of Star Trek must not have at that time seen the many follies that it contained. There are so many aspects of the series that you may not like if you revisit it, and you would rather stick to Star Trek: TOS for the real pleasure of the series. Here is a list of 10 of the most despicable aspects of Star Trek: The Next Generation:
1)The Show Appears Dated!
If you look at The Original Series and you look at TNG, you would see that it has aged more than its predecessor. It may have been the ‘in thing’ in its time, but the special effects, the video of the show looks so terrible now that you are sure to think that they cut corners while shooting the show.
2) The Setting Is Way Too Utopian To Be True!
Gene Roddenberry is trying to tell us that by the 24th century, interpersonal conflicts will no longer exist! All teams will be one big happy family (unless a member is possessed by an alien) and there will be no blame games. There are two points of contention here: one is that this is too good to be true, and the second one is that all this makes for very boring viewing!
