Welcome, Alienesse! That was one of the best descriptions of the value of Star Trek that I've read. Well done!
Thank you, Dragonfare! You are most kind.

Lunarflower, your experience sounds wonderful. I can't imagine having Trekkie parents and grandparents, it must be great.

Yeah. I never really talked Trek with my grandfather (he passed away eight years ago).

But I have seen all of the TNG movies and XI in theaters with my parents. Plus Wrath of Khan at a special midnight showing.

Oh, sorry about your grandfather.

I have only seen Star Trek XI in the theater, but I would have loved to see the others, too. I hope they make the next one in 3D. Wouldn't it be great to actually see the Enterprise fly by you?

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

Aha ... there had to be an intro thread somewheres.

You can peg me as one of the more casual trekkies; watched all the series and most of the movies but haven't delved the minutia

Never been much for Trek Lit & certainly not Fan Fic. My few dips into Trek Lit did not inspire; made me assume Fan Fic would field fouler fic. Oh how wrong

Wandered into here by way of a byway in a search & lit on a Fan Fic that promptly stole away my weekend. Luckily for me it was a closed arc so no waiting for next chapter.

Unluckily the next arc is pending still so here's me signing up to be able to get first sight of the new fictive and maybe tag on a few comments.

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

Hello! I'm 25 and I've been watching Star Trek for as long as I can remember. I grew up watching TNG, the movies, and Voyager. I've finally started to go back and catch up on DS9, as so many people have good things to say about it.

I decided to join this community because, in my many years, I have yet to met another trekkie! (Where are you all hiding?) I'm hoping to get to know some awesome folks with similar interests.

Also, I bleed green.

Live long and prosper, bitches,
Nikki

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

Welcome everyone!

clz, we have something in common. I too have grown up with TNG and I joined this forum about three weeks ago to get in touch with other Star Trek fans since I haven't met any yet, and that's too bad.

May we all chat about all things Trek for years to come!

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

Hi, gang! I'm Python Trek, aka Anne Dorian, aka tonybarc, and I've been visiting here on and off for years. Sometimes I get really busy and only have time to peek in and do a bit of lurking, and other times I post the heck outta this mutha.

I've been a Trekkie since I was a toddler and a science fiction fan in general since I first saw Planet of the Apes waaay back in an era known as The Seventies. I've been reading comics since I first learned to read, and Marvels are my faves. I love Firefly, the Original Star Wars Trilogy, Lost, M*A*S*H*, Monty Python, H.G. Wells, pizza, and long walks in the rain. I have greenish blue eyes.

It seems as though this is as good a place as any to introduce myself. You may call me Subcommander R. I am here to make a few simple observations to send back home to Romulus. With luck and your cooperation, no one will have to disappear during the night.

In the interests of sharing knowledge, I am a student by day (Tal Shiar agent by night). My current duty station is California, but I am away on... business.

How do we know you are telling the truth? After all, you are not only a Romulan, but Tal Shiar? Welcome anyway.
