How in THE FUCK did STNG never really win anything, or even get nominated until their last year? The cast always did fine acting work, but Patrick Stewart should have won Best Actor for his performance in Sarek alone, much less all the other fine work he did.
Syndication was a real stigma at the time. The fact that the show was even nominated in the seventh season was a giant leap forward for the franchise as a whole. Plus I wouldn't ever say it was the BEST show on TV, because the seasons tended to be so hit-and-miss outside of something like the third and fourth season.
