I will be the first person to declare my love of the wildly uneven Star Trek: Voyager above the rest of Star Trek (actually that's a lie, because my colleague Katharine has beaten me to the punch on this several times). But friends: collectively, we are re-watching far too much Voyager on Netflix.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

Deep Space Nine's fans have spoken, and they want a behind-the-scenes look at their beloved yet divisive Star Trek series.
