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

Welcome, Nerd_unRage and Clare!! I enjoy reading posts by new members. Long before you came aboard, there was a debate about whether fans of the 2009 movie would care about or enjoy original Trek. It looks as though the answer is YES, you do!

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

Hey all,

I just did a topic which included a hello, it being my first post and all that...but I've been checking out a few topics here and it seems like a knowledgable community.

Speaking for myself I'm into TOS, TNG and DS9 , plus I enjoy most of the movies - particularly Wrath of Khan and the reboot film.

I've been a fan for over 20 years, but haven't really watched as much Trek recently as I used to. However I still try to catch an episode or put on a movie DVD from time to time. I like doing impressions of a few Trek characters, and I'm thinking of taking forward my Patrick Stewart/Picard voice further as this year goes on.

Good to meet you all.

-Pete

Hi, Peterdemon, welcome aboard! We may be knowledgeable, but mostly we are an opinionated bunch who think we are knowledgeable. Of course, we each also just know we are always right.

I was just browsing this thread for something to do, and and realized it seems the ratio of the fairer sex has increased significantly lately.

Maybe it's just me.

Thank you, Nerd unRage!! I cannot tell you how many times I must have glossed over that box while searching. It is not often an Ensign gets to school a Rear Admiral... well done!!!

No, but there is an ion storm approaching and I need someone to get into the pod. Thank you for volunteering, Nerd unRage.

I was recently promoted to Rear Arse.. er.. Rear Admiral. I think the power has gone to my head.

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

I joined a few days ago thanks to Yeoman Randi who sent me a link!

I love TOS and watch the episodes obsessively -- usually while working on projects around the house.

I have sketched out almost all of the women's costumes from TOS and have started to recreate them for Barbie dolls (yes, I'm a geek and proud of it!).

Yeoman Randi has a couple of pictures in her album. I don't think I am advanced enough in rank to have an album yet, but when I do, I'll put in pictures of the costumes I have made.

In the meantime, I am slowly working my way around the board, posting here and there and still trying to figure it all out! It makes much more sense than it did a couple of days ago so perhaps at some point I will start a thread.

Plus I need to watch more of the other series and movies!
