@DaveF I totally get what you’re saying about original Trek as a foundational text and I can’t disagree. For me, I was only about eight when my dad took me to see the last Trek film with the original crew (my first exposure), and then I started watching TOS after that. So I had the experience both of seeing it a young age and also from the perspective that it was already “history” from my point of view. It already happened, so I accepted it as The Way Things Are. My wife’s intro to Star Trek was the ‘09 movie, and I tried to show her the original show, but she appreciated it more than she enjoyed it. But then we tried TNG and that was fine for her. It made sense to me since she’s a big fan of new Doctor Who but has that same relationship with classic Who.
