Sliders makes four, and Star Trek: Voyager makes five! Other possible answers could have included Ulysses 31, or (for a lost-in-time variant) Quantum Leap.

Over to RockDoctor for the next round …
The other one I thought of was The Time Tunnel, but I couldn't remember how much control they had over the time travel.

Well there is the whole of Star Trek 3 - the one with a woman in Kirk's chair, not the Earl-Grey-hot guy.
<finger counts: TOS, 1, TNG, 2, DS9, 3. Voyager 4; pedantically replies: />
Unless you consider Kirk's Star Trek as being Start Trek 0 (or maybe just Star Trek), the one you're talking about should be Star Trek 4. :D
I think DS9 was in the 20-odd years when I didn't have a TV, or even regular sight of one. I'm told it's in the Star Trek universe, but I've never seen enough of it to judge.

You'd be surprised.
Pleasantly (mavbe): there are chief O'Brian and Worf as a continuity with the "Earl-Grey-hot guy" series (familiar is apparently good).
Not so pleasantly: not the same "journey" main premise.
All-in-all: it has a (quite nice) storyline, only Star Trek Enterprise had a similar approach (all the others focusing on "episodes of the journey").

DS-9 was Days of our Lives/ Coronation Street , in space.. more of a drama than an action thing.. still wasnt bad.

I keep my eyes half-peeled for such things, but haven't seen it on TV yet. It'll be along one decade or another.

Sorry to interrupt once again, while I do enjoy the discussion about Star Trek I am eagerly waiting for the next question :wink:

I did enjoy ds9 even with it being 'stationary' ( a lot, that funny bar cafe :lol: ), I still miss a new star trek series based on exploration like
voyager, Allthough the new show doesn't dissapoint and has interesting looks/ideas.

I remember a time the bbc had almost every day a star trek show...

Can we have a star trek question? Perhaps for nostalgic reasons :idea: :?: :wink:

<taps the microphone: is this think on?>
Is there a timeout on this thread?
Maybe a three strike straight asks?
Let me start this miserable task:

RockDoctor, it's your turn since quite some posts back!

P.S.: Should be ok if you needed more time to brew the next question, but, please, let us know, at least ... :roll:

Sorry, I've not been feeling too good. Hadn't even noticed it was my turn.

OK, quickly composing one.

Where would you find a Columba, a Chappe and a Bell on backs of elephants, and why?

Is this question anyhow related to SiFi ? Without the columba I would guess the rider of an ancient war elephant :lol:

Is the 'why' something to do with sending messages? As for 'where' - no idea!
