I guess it's fair to say that I was brought into the trek world from early childhood when my older brothers would camp me in front of the TV. I was more familiar with Vulcans and Orions than I was with "Dick and Jane."
I fell in love with DS 9 from the very beginning, and for myself rank it with TOS for my personal faves. I was so thrilled this summer when my 12 year old daughter marathoned her way through the entire DS 9 run. I like to think of her as a trekkie-in-training.
I've been enjoying the board here for some time, and in the past month finally felt brave enough to post.
See you around the boards :-)
