Hello world, I'm Lou. When TNG first aired in my area, I was 14 or so. Everyone I knew at the time, friends and family, were all very absorbed with the series from the get-go. Not quite sure if its the writing, casting, or the damned cool scenerios, but I have always held this series is the highest regard, easly on-tier with the Classic Trek in my eyes.
Oh, not sure if this latter film is hated or loved by the fans as a whole, but I absolutely love 'First Contact'. The whole Cochrane thing, drunken Troi, Woodard/Stewart scenes, the music - Brilliant!
