My grandmother watched TNG weekly. I was born a couple of weeks before its premiere, so it aired every week (and upon syndication, every night) in the apartments I grew up in. The films were also watched rather frequently.

It's "not" what got you started?

My first experience was seeing The Doomsday Machine when I was 5 years old and shatting myself in fear.

I'm old. I got hooked on the original series back when it originally ran on NBC back in the sixties. Can't remember my first episode. "The Mantrap" maybe. I remember finding the Salt Vampire very scary . . . .

The salt vampire is still horrifying.

Uh, Tcsfan. You can edit posts. You know that, right?

As for the thread, my FIRST experience was reruns of S1 TNG and the worst of TOS (stuff like And The Children Shall Lead). I dismissed ST for a long time without giving it a second thought.

It wasn't until a friend reintroduced me to TNG and some of the less terrible parts of it that I was really able to enjoy the franchise.

I'm also old. Not quite as old as Greg, but almost. I grew up with TOS in syndication during the 70s. I don't remember my first exposure to Trek because it's always been a part of my life (thanks, Dad).

My earliest Trek memory is I Mudd. Specifically the scene early on where we're first introduced to Stella. I thought it was cool this guy kept his wife in a closet.

Watching The Undiscovered Country when I was still in Primary (Elementary) school. Bit of a shame that I was neither old enough, nor was my English that developed at the time to understand some of the classic lines from the film.

Oddly enough I think my first Star Trek experience was Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I had seen bits and pieces of the TV series as a kid but never really watched them all the way through. The movie I did and I really loved it (and still do) as a child. I kept thinking how awesome and creepy the whole V'Ger cloud was and the interior of the ship. I still think today V'Ger is one of the largest spacecraft ever depicted on the big screen.

And that Klingon battle theme is the best!
