I'm just informing all of you, I might post far more than I need to. I might annoy everyone with rambling posts of unfocused, unrefined Trekbabble. Just a forewarning.
I'm a TNG
fan. I grew up with the show. The first episode I saw on television that was brand new was The Best of Both Worlds
, watching with my dad, and it blew me away. I was hooked. I ate up every last bit of Star Trek afterwards, from TOS
to (eventually) Enterprise
. I (unlike most) idolized Wesley. I wanted to be like him, despite the fact that I'm female. (I suppose if they went with Leslie instead of Wesley, I might have been that
much more enraptured with the character, but in the end it really doesn't matter, I just loved the idea of a young person like myself kicking it with the adults and solving cosmic issues. In retrospect, Wesley was pretty annoying--of course he got better over time--but now, looking back as an adult, I still think he's perhaps unfairly hated. He's at the worst poorly written, I guess.)
