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

My first Star Trek episode was The Doomsday Device when I was in elementary school. I've been a fan ever since. My favorite series is TOS, but I've recently discovered Voyager. I didn't make it past the 3rd episode of TNG with the British/French captain and a brat on the bridge. (However, I like the TNG movies.)

I went to my first convention shortly after The Motion Picture; however, I was freaked out by all the weird people there. I had always considered myself a trekker but I did not relate to the con crowd at all. Years later I attended another con and the crowd seemed much better. I even joined a Star Trek fan club, STARFLEET International. I now have a family membership with my wife and daughter.

I used to play Star Trek The Tactical Simulator (FASA). I also use to play the Star Trek Card Collectable Game and still have an extensive collection. I've been playing Star Trek Online for almost a year. I'm just a casual player so it took me a long time to get my character to Vice Admiral. There are moments when I really get caught up into the game, like during missions involving the Guardian of Forever or the Doomsday Device.

On the forum, you'll mainly find me hanging out in the STO discussion area but I'll visit the other areas from time to time.
