Guys, we really aren't supposed to be posting in any languages other than English.

Fotze, I don't have any idea what you are up to, both in this forum and in another I moderate. But let's keep it to English, please.

__________________________________________________ __________________________

Hi y'all. TroubledTribble here. I'm "very old" to Trek, but new to TrekBBS. I've read this board off and on for eight or so years, Finally decided to start posting.

I've watched all of the incarnations starting with reruns of TOS in the early '70's. I liked TOS, TNG, Voy, couldn't get into DS9, probably because I like the ships so much. Loved Enterprise, especially after Manny Coto took over. Could not believe they ended it just when someone was finally going to start filling in the blanks.

I'm and "old salt" with lots of Navy experience and I'm an adventurer at heart. Look forward to the new movie and can't wait to see where it takes us. This looks to be a great new adventure!!!!!

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Hey Quark here

I started watching when my Uncle started showing me episodes when I was about 3. That was back in '94, havent stopped since

I have watched every series, loved TNG and DS9, Voyager was ok and ws rather disapointed with Enterprise. Of course, TOS was great!

Favourite characters - Quark and O'Brien.

Can't wait for the new movie, I am intigued already!

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Hello all, I introduced myself in one of the other boards but I think I'll do it here too X)

I joined here so I can have more people to talk with about Star Trek things...being 16, it's kinda hard to find other people. Star Trek isn't exactly a teen thing XD I've been watching since about 4; I grew up watching Voyager and started watching the others when it ended. I'm sad I could never have met Gene Roddenberry, he died before I was born.

I'm hoping to make a bunch of friends here, this place looks pretty awesome

I was five when TOS aired on NBC but I remember the arguments between my older brother and my parents over watching it more than the first run of the show. I didn't really get hooked until the reruns. Been watching ever since.

Hey people. I'm Hawku (now available in bold lettering!), and I've been a Trek fan since the mid 90's. I got into TNG, then VOY and DS9 - with TOS reruns in the background of it all. My family was into it, so I just went along with them on it-- but just that one time.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

just wanted to say that i am hugely looking forward to this movie. since the experience closed this month, it has felt like star trek has died, but this movie can keep things alive if it is good and more importantly - accurate.

One thing i wanted to ask (sorry if this is a stupid question. i keep reading on trekmovie.com this word CANON being mentioned when talking about making the timeline fit. could someone explain to me what CANON actually means.

Thanks in advance
Alan

The Memory Alpha entry here is probably as good a place as any to start (and far less inflammatory than some explanations you're likely to find.)

The Wikipedia link provides a further, more general, background on the subject.

Its basically the history of the show. If its onscreen, its canon. If you see it or someone says it - its canon.

If Kirk says "I was born in Iowa", that is now canon (part of the history of the show) from there on in. They can't turn round and say he was born in calcutta. That would violate "canon".

Problem is, the show has been going for 42 years, and it makes it very difficult to come up with anything new, especially if it contridicts some obsure line of dialogue written years before.

Were it up to me, I'd throw everything out and start again. But that's just my opinion

Books are not canon though. Nor are Comics. Written material (with a few exceptions) is not canon.

thanks for the quick response guys. expect me to ask a lot more questions over the coming weeks. i've only been a fan for about 3 years. before that it was a passing familiarity. my mate for his 21st paid for and him to go to vegas to see the experience and have his picture taken on the bridge in uniform and since then i've been hooked. i would say that my DS9 knowledge is excellent, and TNG and voyager is good. not yet watched enterprise. i finally got all the episodes off my friend tonight so that takes care of my weekend lol. i know very little about TOS, and my tech knowledge is poor, but i look forward to learning more. thanks again for the responses, i had an idea that was what it meant, but i thought the letter C A N O N actually stood for real words (if that maes sense)

Yes, but what if Kirk was lying when he said he was born in Iowa?

Or he simply forgot?

Or he was possessed by an alien entity at the time?

Or he had been ripped in half and that was his evil side that said it?

Or aliens experimented on him as a child and only made him believe that he was born in Iowa?

Or that it was the Mirror Universe Kirk who said that?

It's not so simple, is it?

BUT KERK SAID IT SO MUST BE TRUE!!!111!!!

I've often thought you'd could explain anything away if you think about it. Especially lines of dialogue. In real life, people say stuff wrong all the time.
