RE: Star Trek- What central villain did TOS have? It wasn’t about villains, it was about solving problems.

No strictly re-occurring villain, but in the in-universe time of TOS, they were still at war with the Klingons. And there was hostilities with the Romulans. Yes, the show did solve problems and make commentary on life and the human condition, but it still existed in its own universe where they are at war. I don't see a Star Trek show where they are not at war, considering the hundred plus alien races in the Alpha quadrant, races that go through the D.S.9. wormhole from another quadrant, and wat ever else. It makes sense for some kind of re-occurring villain, though I wouldn't want it to be the primary focus of a Trek series.

Sure there were the Klingons and a few antagonists reappeared a second time but it seems ever since The Wrath of Khan they feel Star Trek needs a major series villain.

But without villains and skybeams, what would Hollywood do?

They actually were only at war with the Klingons for a single episode and only for the purpose of making the point of the futility of war and it was resolved by the episode's end. There was no indication that a shooting war was going on before this, even in the context of the script. After that, for the remainder of the series, it was a "cold war." They were lurking in the background, doing sneaky crap, but they kept to the terms of the peace treaty.

Star Trek used war to make a point about war. War wasn't what the series was about though any more than Gunsmoke and there was shooting on almost every episode of that series.

Bob Justman hated the idea of a reoccurring villain and rejected the return of Kor to the series or having a new Klingon know Kirk on sight. He felt that in the entire enormity of the universe, it stretched believability to have the hero ship constantly running into the same person. It make sense if the location is stationary (DS9 or, I guess, the Academy), but I honestly don't think Star Trek needs an ongoing Black Hat heavy, universe ending crises or constant shoot em ups. Some of the greatest episodes had very little actual violence, and while absolutely many did, it's the main characters and our investment in them what made the show work. 79 episodes of the original series and the only returning antagonist was Harry Mudd.

Star Fleet Academy could grab attention by going into another direction and actually being about attending the academy, showing the challenges of living up to expectations and the dangers of deep space with lots of action, fun and romance. All without a recurring villain.

Perfectly stated Scott! And if it’s like every other modern series it will be “Star Trek” in name only.
