Hi everyone, I'm a long time lurker, and recent poster.
I became a fan of TNG (and TOS and movies) around 1990, and I've been watching it ever since.
One of my earliest memories was seeing 11001001 on TV at first airing. It was when the Enterprise was backing out and warping away. I remember the effects being really impressive (still do). I was 4 at the time.
TNG will always be my favorite. My brain says DS9 is the best, but my heart chooses TNG.
