Hello, I'm brand new to Star Trek, and to science fiction in general, actually. I stumbled across the site when I was googling explanations for some of the things in the first two episodes of the original series (which is what I'm up to- so really very green to the show). Thought it would be fun to have somewhere I could ask questions and talk about the episodes!
My absolute first reaction to the show was to be shocked at how attractive William Shatner was back in the day. My second was total lack of shock at how fine Leonard Nimoy was, since he floats my non-fangirl boat anyway. Hopefully I'll think of some more cerebral responses to the show.
