I have very strong memories of watching TAS when if first came out. I had just gone into military service and can vividly remember watching it on Saturday mornings in the barracks. I had watched TOS since mid-way through the first season (was out of the country 'til then), but I can't actually say I was an incurable Trekkie before TAS. For whatever reason, when it came along, TAS just appealed to me and to this day I have a very fond spot for it. Even though I had watch TOS, it was TAS that cemented my love of Star Trek.
