Star Trek

As it is considered a great Science Fiction show, I have decided to work through the entirety of the series, starting with The Next Generation. I've been enjoying it thus far, especially seeing Patrick Stewart as the Captain.

Some things I've noticed that I didn't know before:

Data gets laid by Lieutenant Yar. I wasn't aware that they gave Data full functionality, for that matter.

Picard is first seen ordering, "Earl Grey Tea, Hot" in the season 2 episode, Contagion. However, what the computer gives him is a plant. (Could this be a nod to Hitchhiker's Guide? The ship not giving tea [just like the guide] and a potted plant appearing against all odds?)

The second time Picard makes his famous Tea order is the season 2 episode, Pen Pals. He actually gets tea this time.

I'll post more as I view more episodes.

Also, a quick question, I will be watching Deep Space Nine, but I've not seen it, how does it rate compared to the other Star Treks?

After much contemplation, (Five whole minutes worth) I have figured out where Nickelodeon started to go wrong. It was when they stopped using slime for pretty much everything.
