Re: If You Grew Up on STAR TREK...

Being a Trekkie didn't hurt, but I went to a private school of pretty smart tykes, so I didn't especially stand out, either. And I have a fairly vivid memory of once realizing that my daring X-Wing maneuvers, complete with hand-goggles and a capella sound effects, were being observed by a few classmates one recess, who burst into laughter once I noticed them.

There did come a time in second or third grade, however, when we were assigned to do invidual reports on a planet of the solar system. I was all, "heck, that's kindergarten stuff", and did my report on black holes instead. I think that impressed my classmates for all of a few minutes on the day of the presentation...
