I'm a total TOS fan. My ABSOLUTE favorite charactor of all time is Leonard H. Bones McCoy. The best doctor ever. When I finally get a cat no matter what I'm going to to name him/her Kirk, Spock, or McCoy

Hiya! Just joined.

Take a guess who my favourite character of all time is . I also love Donatra of Nemesis fame...seriously the only good thing about that movie, in my book.

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

I also liked a lot of the designs (e.g. Shinzon's ship and the Romulan Senate) and there was a pretty good idea and philosophical question buried underneath the rather lacklustre script.
I like the Romulans, too, (and the Remans) but I prefer the way the Romulans looked in TOS to how they did in TNG.

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

Hi, everyone! I'm a new member and I have a sad tale to tell. I've been alive 29 years and up until about a week ago, I had NEVER watched any Star Trek episode, cartoon, or movie. Feel free to throw tomatoes at me, I deserve it. I grew up with TOS in syndicated reruns on a daily basis. I remember the cartoons on Nickelodeon, but never watched them. I was around when TNG, DS9, and Voyager were in their original runs, but I never watched them. I've never seen any of the movies. I warned you, this is a sad sad tale.

But about a week ago, some buddies and I were talking about Sci-Fi and they convinced me to watch Star Wars (another sad tale very similar to this one). I loved it and I started asking questions about the Star Trek movies. My friend Keith suggested that I should start with "Wrath of Khan" but as a pre-requisite I should watch "Space Seed".

So I watched "Space Seed" online and I was HOOKED! I loved it, and became a Trekkie that instant. I then became curious about the pilot episode "The Cage", so I watched "The Menagerie Parts 1 & 2". Loved it. I then decided I wanted to learn everything possible about this show that had eluded me all these years.

So I am here fellow Trekkie and I ask your forgiveness for my 29 years of mis-spent youth (although in all fairness, I could probably answer just about any Superman question you could have ;-) It was a big chunk of money but I bought the Remastered DVDs and they are in the mail as I type this. In the meantime I've been watching the eppies on startrek.com

Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself and I look forward to visiting these boards! Live long and prosper.

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

Welcome ActionAce1982, Andromedakay, et al.

As for me, I've been here 6 on TrekBBS just over 6 years and (a bit over 5,000 posts), having discovered it after several years posting over on the old Flare SciFi forums, which went sadly moribund quite a while back.

Although I'm not 100% certain, I'm pretty sure my first exposure to Star Trek was when it was in it's final season on NBC. I was 6. I certainly knew of the show by 1971-72 because I have a paperback book on dinosaurs on the inside cover of which I rendered a crude Enterprise.

It became my favorite thing around 1973 because it was of the fact that the animated show was on NBC Saturday mornings and the series was in daily reruns at 3:30pm, right when I got home from school. I saw TMP on opening weekend...twice.

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

Hello.

Been a fan of Star Trek for a long time. I first started on TNG when I was about 8 or 9. At first I didn't get it, but as I got older, I was hooked. About two years ago, I became a TOS fan after I received the second season on DVD as a gift. Ironically, after watching TNG, TOS, Deep Space Nine, and the Voyager series, I still love the TOS the most.

It's hard to explain; I didn't grow up during that era. I just think it has a certain charm and 'innocence' that the other shows haven't been able to capture.

Anyway, that's me.

I know what you mean. There's a misconception that whatever you're exposed to first in your life will always be your favorite but that's not necessarily true. Not trying to change subjects, but I'm a huge Superman fan. I grew up during the John Byrne era and those were the first comics I bought. However, now that I've read all the different eras its the Curt Swan silver/bronze age version that I like the best. So I totally see where you're coming from. There's a certain magic to days gone by and the products of that era. I was born in 1982, but I have a huge fondness for TV and all media really, from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.
