Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Hello. Newbie here. Like several others who have posted, I have been a Star Trek fan for many years, yet, somehow, never thought to look for a definitive place for fans to hang out. I was born in the 70's, so I can remember watching TOS re-runs as well as the animated series when I was a kid. In middle school TNG came out and I was enamored all over again. Especially since there was a character/actor on the show my age. Yep. Good ol' Wesley. I watched every episode of TNG as they aired, glued to the TV every night it was on. I also liked DS9 a lot, but after that I moved in other directions. I wouldn't say my interested waned, just that other things gained importance. College, working, relationships, etc.

In all my years of being a fan I have never been to a convention, and I have always wanted to go. I decided that there was no sense in putting it off indefinitely and it was time to check one out. Doing that made me think..."Hey, I wonder if there's a definitive place for Trekkies to hang out online...

And so there is. And here I am.
