Welcome, Alienesse! That was one of the best descriptions of the value of Star Trek that I've read. Well done!
Thank you, Dragonfare! You are most kind.
Lunarflower, your experience sounds wonderful. I can't imagine having Trekkie parents and grandparents, it must be great.
Yeah. I never really talked Trek with my grandfather (he passed away eight years ago).
But I have seen all of the TNG movies and XI in theaters with my parents. Plus Wrath of Khan at a special midnight showing.
