We're having a Trek discussion there also. The nice thing about it is that we're all equals and free to like or dislike the movie as we so desire. We treat each other politely and fairly, and we're always looking for open minded, thoughtful people willing to dig in and speak their minds with respect and determination. If you don't know how to get there, it's in your User CP and select TNZ. The discussion's getting fun!

J.
Oh, J, you're doing it to n00bs? Oh. For shame.
Doing what? I think Star Trek can be discussed in a genuinely open manner, where everyone participates on even ground.

If you folks are interested, you can find us in TNZ.

I loved TNG as well, didn't warm too much to DS9 because after the first season it seemed to dilute itself.
Go dilute yourself, San Diego...

How so though...? DS9 was my favorite.
The first few episodes were supposed to be gritty, a darker dirtier Trek and while I think it eventually got there, it lost that sense for quite some time after the first few episodes and I stopped caring. That was just me.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Howdy do. I thought I had an account here from a couple of years ago? Had to re-sign up just now.

Anyway, I runt he STSTCSOLD&A and occasionally lurk on this forum. Excitement over Star Trek 2009 has had me reading here more than usual. Thought I should throw in my two cents.

Are custom avatars denied for new users? In my profile it has a single radio button that is permanently checked for disabling the avatar.

It did go through a run of pretty generic TNG-like episodes, I agree. I kept watching though because the cast were always worth it.

Welcome to the BBS

Oh, and Sub-odeon - yes, avatars come in after a certain amount of posts, can't remember how many - click on the FAQ link at the top of the screen, it should tell you.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Okay, another Hello thread.

I'm Friedebarth, a trekker from Germany and I hate the new movie. Well, except for fanon 24th century designs of the altered movie timeline. And I like the new technobabble and stuff. Yeah, but apart from that, I think the new movie is utter crap. McCoy doesn't have a southern Accent, the Enterprise looks like Apple iDildo-prise and so forth.

Good film, but bad Trek.

I remember the first time I watched TOS. I think that's why I love the movie so much. It brings back that magic and wonder of a being a Trekkie as a kid.

That's exactly how I felt exiting the theater. The four times

How I envy you, Jux, to discover all this!
I think it's wonderful that STXI is going to bring new people to the fandom. The fact that Jux seems to enjoy TOS as well is telling about the movie.

Indeed. I'm crazy about my TOS, and I still love this movie. It feels like an updated original series movie.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! The entertainment value of the movie is what drew me in at first. It just looked really fun to watch! I then looked into TOS and I just loved how awesome the stories are and how cool things look! I've just been zooming through the episodes!

I just finished watching "The Conscience of The King" so I guess I've seen 13.

Oh how I envy you for being able to watch the movie four times! I'm too broke to watch it again.
