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

Thanks for the welcome, everyone.... and I promise I will watch the original series movies as soon as possible! Actually, I was eyeing the recent box set collection the other day. I'm just waiting for amazon to put them on sale again!

Yeoman Randi, nice to meet you! I always enjoy reading your banter back and forth with Jeri on the Chris Fine...er... um.... Pine thread!

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

*blink*

I've introduced myself elsewhere in the bbs, so how did I miss this one?

I've been a fan since it started in '66, and as a person who loves animation, I'm delighted to find a group where some of the folks are actually over 30. The movie brought me here. I haven't loitered - I signed up as soon as I saw that NuBones won "the sexiest" poll over NuKirk and NuSpock.

Hello to Lethe, Kev72, JustKate, and PurdyBear, who all, I think, signed up right behind me. Isn't this just great??

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

Greetings and felicitations fellow Trek fans! I am 26 years of age, engaged, and anticipating Trek 12 in 2012! I have amassed a sizable collection of Trek items that I have recently relocated to my new house. I have seen all 726 episodes and 11 movies at least twice or more. I am not a frequent poster, as evidenced by my rank, but an avid lurker and enjoy reading the commentaries and in some cases dissertations of some of the regular posters on the BBS. I am an admin at Trekspace, a Star Trek social networking site with 5000+ members to date. All my pics can be viewed at the link to my page in my signature. Hope to see some of you there in the future.

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

Hello all! Newbie here, and new to star trek in general, but I have been browsing your site for the past year. I decided to finally register once I have finished watching all of the original series and TNG. Now, just bought DS9 and going through it. Hate to stir the pot, but I am not enjoying DS9 as much as TOS or TNG.

Anyways, glad to be here and hope to get to know you all!

^Welcome, Quantum Q! Don't worry, you are not the only one who thinks that way about DS9. In fact, most of us cannot agree on breakfast... let alone our favorite Star Trek series!

Sector 7 is right. You're free to have a wrong opinion if you wish.

But seriously, it doesn't really matter. Even people who like a show can't agree on what's good or bad in it. You're definitely not gonna get any demotions for not liking a series. Breakfast would probably be easier...but no gagh. Welcome to the forum.

Hi there!

I've been a fan for ages, and some of you may recognize my nick from elsewhere online. I like all Trek shows, but especially DS9 and Enterprise. And yes, I even like *gasp* the new movie *gasp*

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

Hello,
I've been here for a little while. I've forgotten just how long. I know there was one fewer movie back then. I want to welcome all the new folks, and send my greetings to the old timers.
One thought I'd like to add. THe TrekBBS is a great starting point. I'd really recomend trying to take part in local gatherings, if there are any other posters in your area. I've made a couple of good friends here, who I wouldn't if I just stuck to staying on line. And not only are these poeple not wierd, they appreciate my wierdness!

Haha! Well then, then I must also add that I am skipping DS9 for the time being and have gone straight into Voyager. So far, I am liking this show alot. Hopefully I will grow to like DS9, but there is just something about starships I prefer over starbases.

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

Finally made an account after lurking for about a year. My name is Nick and I'm a sophomore at UNCC. I'm working towards getting a Masters degree in Physics. My roommate introduced me to Star Trek last year and I've become a huge fan. I love this site and have seen that there are good people here and I can't wait to get to know all of you.

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

Hi guys,

I'm Molly, yes my real name. Obviously Roger is not my real last name but I may change it someday.

I'm 18, I know, just a baby compared to some of the people here. Some of you remember the first runs of TOS.

In any event, I grew up with Trek because my parents were rabid fans.

Unfortunately, they both died when I was 16.

but I won't dwell on that

I'm a true geek-girl. I love Sci-fi and Fantasy and especially Pirates. I live on a boat. Anyhow, nice to find this forum.

Welcome. Not everyone here is that old. I joined when I was 16, for example. Glad you could join us.
