In a way, for me, Stargate SG-1 feels like a truer heir to real Star Trek than TNG, DS9 and the rest ever did.

I totally agree. Once you get past the “Hey, we’re on premium cable!” nudity of the pilot, SG-1 feels more like the original Star Trek than any of the actual Star Trek sequels.

A Britannia Music magazine I used to receive in the post stated something very similar! I guess the writer of the article considered it a "heir" to STAR TREK.

On Howard Mackie's recommendation I picked up the first season of PEAKY BLINDERS. Haven't started watching yet, but am intrigued, since it is set in Birmingham, very close to my Old Home Town.

It's very good!

Here's a pub in the centre of Birmingham (not my photo):

Please take the accents with a pinch of salt though! I
say this as a `Yam Yam` not a `Brummie`
Some of it is filmed at The Black Country Museum, but
most is Liverpool! But strangely Spielberg filmed the
post apocalyptic stuff in ready Player One in Birmngham!

Just watched "Elaan of Troyius" from the third season of STAR TREK: TOS via Netflix... I had seen the episode once before on late night reruns many, many years ago. Still fun to see Captain Kirk and his "Taming of the Shrew" routine with the title character.

And boy, they certainly went overboard with the makeup and wardrobe on France Nuyen. I checked out some other photos of her online and have to say that if I had ever met her in person I would never have recognized her as the actress who played Elaan.
