"Search For Spock" was my (rge)initiation also. It was a perfect hangover cure in college, I would throw the VHS on every time I couldn't get out of bed and only reach as far as the VCR.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Hi Trek people!

New to the forums. Been a fan of Trek since I was a kid back in the early Nineties, sitting on the couch next to my dad watching new episodes of TNG, and seeing The Undiscovered Country in the theater.

Nowadays, I still love the franchise. I've been showing my partner DS9 for the very first time, and I've been finally reading through some of the Trek novels (just finished Homecoming, reading The Farther Shore now).

I've also been delving into some of the Trek fanfilm scene. I really love the fact that a lot of the major productions have included LGBT characters; as a queer Trekkie myself, it's nice to finally see some people I identify with a bit better.

Hope to see more of you all soon.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Oh, right, an introductions thread. I should post in this (after several posts...)

Username= fireproof78
Gender= Male.
Nationality= American
Personality= A bit of Spock, Sulu with the Doctor's heavy dose of sarcasm
Favourite .T.V. series= Either TOS or DS9-it will depend on the day (or my mood)
Favourite book series= Section 31
Favourite Star Trek reviewer= Chuck from SF Debris.
Hates= Voyager, Enterprise (bits and pieces), 1st season of TNG.

Filling the gaps:

I have liked Trek since I read my dad's Star Trek Concordance by Bjo Trimble, and wondered why his action figures came with little blue soap squares (they were communicators). Since then, I have watched all of the movies, liked some, didn't like others, but found them all interesting. I enjoyed most of the TV series, but never warmed up to Voyager and Enterprise, but have recently been revisiting DS9.

I enjoy good discussion and debate, with respect to others, regarding all topics Star Trek. I am a firm supporter of Abrams Trek as being worthy of the Star Trek name, and you can see many of my posts in that regard in the appropriate forum.

In any case, I love talking and chatting so feel free to say hi

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

My name's Jeff. I'm 42. I'm a bit of a late bloomer to Trek. I grew up watching an episode here and episode there of the various series either as they came out or repeats. The movies: a few I saw in theater, a few I saw on VCR/DVD a few I didn't see at all until a few years ago. Finally, about ten years ago, having never given Trek an honest chance, I committed myself to giving Trek a serious try. I watched all of TOS. The rest is history. I've seen every episode of every series and every movie at least once (even TAS). I'm hooked. I like all of it and love a lot of it. DS9 is my favorite series. Even the weakest episode or movie brings something to table. I haven't gotten into the books, fanficts or really any aspect of ST outside the movies and tv series and I've never been to a convention. Maybe someday. Looking forward to sharing insights and ideas w my fellow trek enthusiasts.

It's like a DVD but box shaped and could only be viewed linearly.

However, you can now get VHS tapes for the VCR for less than a dollar.
