I have seen the completely laughable "action" sequences of the first Star Trek series, with the rubber suits and all, but I was also told that those action sequences are few and far between and that the real meat of the series like in the characters and their dialogue. Should I begin at the very start?
Also, what about the animated series... should I skip it? Apparently it was de-canonized at the beginning of TNG or something. And I've heard nothing but bad things about Enterprise, so... I don't know really!
