My daughters (10 and 11) have expressed at least passing interest in seeing the new Star Trek movie. While I could simply take them to see it and be done with it, I can’t help feeling like they would be better served by seeing some other Star Trek canon first. The question is, what should the see.
The most obvious answer is The Wrath of Khan. But isn’t “Khan” better if preceded by TOS “Space Seed” where Khan is introduced? And surely it is necessary to follow-up “Khan” with The Search for Spock to see what happens to Spock?
Is that enough? Are there any other episodes that should really be seen first? I think the rest of the movies and other series can wait until later, probably on their own time if ever.
