The Official Welcome Thread
 
Another poster suggested a thread of this type and I agreed. I haven't kept up with the exact numbers of membership but if you have joined TrekBBS due to the new movie, I'd like to extend a welcome.

Feel free to post whatever comes to mind, don't be afraid to ask a question that you think someone who's been around forever has heard 50 million times. Please feel free to spread enthusiasm for the new movie as it might even become contagious. If you aren't enthuastic about the movie that's fine as well, believe it or not.

I'd appreciate it if you took the opportunity to introduce yourself if you're new, or even if you're old.

I joined TrekBBS in the summer of 1999 and have been a moderator for almost six years. I'm looking forward to this movie, TOS is my favorite Star Trek series, and I've been a fan since I was 11 (in 1991 not 1966). The other sci-fi interest of mine is the new Battlestar Galactica.

My field of work is television production which has included news interviews, digital editing, and taping sports even though I'm not a sports fan. Once you shoot a game everything else is child's play, but post-production is my personal preference.

I'm Samuel T. Cogley. I'm an old, crusty curmudgeon. If you like something, I probably don't. And I'll tell you why you shouldn't like it either.

If you are hot, please send your photos to samueltcogley@hotmail.com

Don't bother sending contact info. I won't call you back.

I'm an attorney. I got Kirk off. And he liked it.

Now go away and leave me alone.

Great idea, Garth. :bolian:

And first let's cover that for new TrekBBS members. It is a board request that you use bold type for a poster's name if you mention them in one of your posts.

My name is Gregg and I'm an original Trekkie, having beamed on board the Enterprise for the premiere of Star Trek on NBC. I was 13 at the time, just the right age to have Star Trek warp me for the rest of my life.

I'm looking forward to this movie with great hope. I want Star Trek to live and grow, and the success of the new movie can insure that for a decade. Please don't let it suck...please don't let it suck...please don't let it suck...

Welcome to TrekBBS. There are good folks here. :)

Well, good idea. I've run into a number of newcomers here lately. The buzz is on!

I, of course - am an avatar, not a doctor. :D

Hello to all! In "board years" I'm older than the rumors of the new movie and newer than the old series. I've been a Trekkie all my life, which has spanned 42-and-some years thus far.

There are cool, funny and friendly people here, all united by their love for (or their love of bitching about) Star Trek in all its incarations... a United Federation of People, if you will.

I am filled with hope for the new movie and a revitalization of our favorite franchise.

I like pie.

My name is Temis, and I'm a Vortaholic. :D My main claim to fame is that I am single-handedly responsible for Zachary Quinto being cast as Spock, unless he sucks, in which case I never heard of the guy.

Everyone please give a welcome to Kira's Mom, who'll be joining the forum as a second moderator!

The extra coverage will be a lot of help and, with your assistance, hopefully all we have to do is make sure every thread is read instead of actual work.

Hi Mom! :D

Thanks, Lord Garth! I'm sure this will be an easy place to mod. :p ;)

Hi, all. I'm Turbo, and I must be insane, because I seem to be the only person on Earth who doesn't like anything that J.J. Abrams has ever done.

As such, I fear for this movie, but I won't pass judgement on it until I see it.

:D

Hello, I'm Woulfe and I'm an addit too....
What ? this isn't Star Trek annon ?
Well shoot, forget what I just said....
I'm yer basic comic relief useually.

I have 40 years of pop-culture stuck in my brain, forget things like math and whatnot, I remember song lyrics and useless trivia that no one even cares about anymore ;)

I useually make a random sig at the bottom of my posts that have nothing to do with anything at all, just random thoughts from my brain.

I think the film will be just fine as long as we keep an open mind, and a closed wallet 'till we get to the day it arrives at a theater near you ;)

Then we'll see if it sinks or swims.

No, you're not the only one who can't see the hype about this man's previous work. It's mostly crap as far as I'm concerned. Having said that however, I am giving the movie all the benefit of the doubt. Hopefully it will revitalize the franchise and we'll get another shot at a TV series someday.

Hi all, I'm chancellorjake , but you can call me chance. I joined TrekBBS around the time of Enterprise's demise, but I mostly lurk all the time. The approach of Star Trek XI has me really excited and I might actually comment, occasionally . Also, my handle has nothing to do with Klingons :klingon: or the leader of the High Command.
