Re: The Official Welcome Thread

I'm a relatively newly minted Trekkie - just a few months in the making. And the years of my life before now were so terribly wasted!

*I laugh at almost everything Kirk says, adore Spock, and continually feel the urge to smack Bones upside the head.
*I hold intense personal beliefs as to Kirk and Spock's tempestuous Romance-that-should-have-been-and-possibly-happened-but-shall-not-be-spoken-of-because-we-are-manly-damnit!
*I love Vulcans. I understand Vulcans. We have a lot in common.

*I dearly wish Picard were my gay daddy. Whose head I would sometimes rub for luck - Buddha But Better!

*I desire nothing so much as to geek out and form complex theories about the Trek-verse. I want to know who made first contact with Earth, what Q does when he isn't bantering with Picard, and how many times exactly Scotty has died.

...Hi! *waves*

Does anyone have the patience to tell me the sombrero story from its genesis? Because I'm intensely entertained so far. ^^

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

The best way to get that is to go here to the genesis itself, and see it as it developed. Any attempt to explain it otherwise is going to fall short of the actuality.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Might as well stick my hello in here too

I'm a fairly long term trek fan, back to watching the original series on the Beeb (back in the seventies if memory serves). I also read too much for my own good and probably watch too much tv.

I've lurked around here for a couple of years, but thought it was about time to finally join up.

See you around

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Hey y'all.

I'm a long-term fan of Trek (In ratio to my life) first TV show I can remember was TNG. Had a ton of space and science books and I annoy my friends with big words.

I've been a lurker as well, but now have the courage to join and make an absolute fool of myself :P

Don't try and find some deeper meaning to it all, because there isn't one.

Just think Star Trek and Sombreros. It was remarked that the saucer section of the Enterprise would look better in one, and it pretty much snowballed from there.



Welcome to the board all newcomers!!!

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Someone really ought to write a Wikipedia article about the Sombreroprise phenomenon. I don't really know how or else I would have already done it.

Welcome Kanousei, John Clark and Herkimer Jitty!

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Hey there. My name is Sean. I live in Western New York, also known as the land of snow and cold. Except when it's hot. I hate hot.

People say I have cynical and sarcastic outlook on life, not dissimilar to that of a 70 year old drunk man. I have been interested in Star Trek since I was 7, since I am only a month away from 16 now, that would be around 1999, and my favorite series are by far DS9 and Enterprise, although TNG is a pretty close runner up. I would like to go to school to become a high school history teacher. I am a musician, and I am on an ever-lasting quest to find a violin score for the TMP theme song. You'll also find me floating around the Flare Sci-Fi forums on a regular basis. I am looking forward to the new movie, as long as Abrahms doesn't completely screw with established continuity as we know it.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Welcome! It sounds like you've got the credentials to fit in around here. (Flare forums... is Capps still running the show over there?)

Not sure what to suggest about the violin part for the TMP theme. I've seen piano reductions of the music from that movie, and there may actually be a full score out there somewhere, but it almost sounds like it would be quicker and a better learning experience to do a transcription yourself (I guarantee that by the end of that kind of exercise, you'll know all of the parts... whether you wanted to or not. )

Hello. I already made an introduction post in the other welcome thread so I will put it here too:

Hello all, my name is Floyd Atha I'm 18 years old and I finally decided I wold join this site after lurking around as a guest for a few months. Now if I could only think of something to say; but since I cant I will rant about pointless stuff. I live on a chicken farm in Monroe, GA, a small town in the middle of republican redneck shoot-anything-that-moves-land. I have been watching Star Trek for about 3 years now and I have seen every episode of all the serieses and I have seen all the movies except 6,8,9, and 10 I hope to see them before 11 comes out. I listen to punk rock music, my favorite band being Strike Anywhere. I enjoy arguing about politics. That's all I can think of for my first post on this site. I hope to be here a while. Live long and Prosper

PS What's With All The Sombreros?
So yeah... Thats About it.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Hooray!

I've been here just short of 24 hours... Long time reader, first time poster if you will. Arrived from the ST.com boards after being on there for 4 years and not really feeling it I've always felt a bit intimidated by forums, but we'll see how this turns out, eh? Hoping to make some new friends and see how much longer I can get away with doing this on office time

I've been watching Star Trek since I was 6 (it was the late 80s - I was there, it happened!), and been watching ever since, AND I'M NOT SORRY mwah ha hahaaaa! The obsession even decided what degree I was going to do at uni, sadly no jobs at NASA tho (I hear the European Space Agency are recruiting). I seem to be in a minority for actually enjoying Enterprise, despite its flaws (up until TATV) and I'm still in mourning since its cancellation.

I don't have an awful lot going on

[Edit - it took me that long to write this, I've now been here over 24 hours. That's 3600+ minutes of pure awesome. OH YEAH!]

The Sombrero Explanation, such as it is, may be found here. Bring snacks; it may take a while.
