Star Trek fans don’t have to wait any longer for the newest installment of the sci-fi series. Star Trek: Into Darkness opened nationwide on Thursday and it’s getting mostly positive reviews from critics and fans. The $190 million budget and cutting edge special effects are a far cry from the original low-tech Star Trek series but fans have not abandoned the original show.

What have been the most memorable story lines in the Star Trek franchise? What are your favorite Star Trek episodes or films? What characters best encapsulate the characters? How do the new films compare to the older series and movies?
