Think I'll stick to Star Trek...it's a lot less confusing...as long as
you watch the original and not the new Star Trek movies that don't
follow cannon. What the heck they are pretty good.

Now Star Wars is another matter...I never could get into it

In some respects, Star Wars is more complicated than Doctor Who (certainly once the official "expanded universe" is taken into account, which is a much bigger deal in Star Wars than in either Star Trek or Doctor Who). If you like your sci-fi straightforward and of a what-you-see-is-what you get nature, Star Trek is definitely the place to be. (Also, with Star Trek, the reboot is supposed to be its own canon, so unlike the other two series, all you need do with Star Trek is remember what happened in the series you are watching. I do not think Vulcans would be impressed with Star Wars in particular for this reason).

I like complicated, and I like all three major sci-fi series (Star Wars, Doctor Who and Star Trek) for different reasons.

Dare, regarding Dr Who, doesn't really bother me as I never watch it.  :tease:

I'm also a fan of all three. Star Trek is by far my favorite. That doesn't apply to the new movies. They are to the real Star Trek what the 1967 Peter Sellers-Woody Allen Casino Royale was to the real Bond movies.   :sick:

I think that it's fantastic news.  Dr Who is all about change and renewal, so it makes perfect sense that the Doctor's gender can change.  I hope that Jodie Whittaker is better served by the story writers than Peter Capaldi has been in the series which has just finished though.  They desperately need to improve the scripts and plots.
