Hello all, I'm a seasoned TNG spammer, but I haven't been around this particular forum here much lately.
I'm 26, so I was just the right age when TNG came out to get hooked on it. My parents were TOS/Movie fans so I had seen some reruns before TNG came out, and saw TVH in the theater.
TNG remains my favorite series to this day. I always liked how they explored humanity as much as they did the galaxy, and how conflicts were sometimes solved with ethics and morals instead of shooting. I liked the shooting too!
