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

Greetings! I'm Lady Kimela, from the Pennsylvania region of Sol III. <--- yeah, that was even too Trekkie for me.

I was introduced to Trek BBS by a friend. I'm really enjoying it so far and I can't believe I didn't learn about this little slice of Trekkie heaven until now. I've been a fan of Star Trek since childhood. Sitting beside my father watching original airings of classic Star Trek was the best!

I'm enjoying the game threads and have introduced myself in the Red Shirt Lounge as well. Thanks for having me.

Welcome Lady Kimela!!

You're already an ensign it seems. You may yet become as spammy as.. some of us are. What's that? No, not me, no.

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

Hello all! I’m Righbach from California and I recently found this place after doing some research on the pocket book novels. I am currently starting my Star Trek Literature Voyage with the Titan Series upon recommendation (The guy at Barnes and Noble made sure to whisper it to me).


My path to ST is kind of odd as I have always been a video game geek since I was a little 10 year old with a Sega Genesis. I really enjoyed Sci-Fi movies and TV such as Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Star Wars, but I never paid much attention to Trek until I met my future wife. One of our first couple dates was to the 2009 Movie in which my wife got so excited my right arm was red and blistered from her pinching me. Thankfully, I was too excited to feel pain, and I started looking back on all the great TV I had been missing! I have since become a Netflix Subscriber and have promptly been working my way through TOS and TNG (My wife is more of a TNG fan). We’ve watched Trekkies I & II and I was blown away at how dedicated, creative, and caring this group of fandom can be! I couldn’t help but want to become a part of it.


I am so excited to explore the vastness of media that is out there for us to consume that I can’t even concentrate! I’m sure this post has gone on way too long so I’ll end it with a quick Hello! And I look forward to meeting you all

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

helllo everyone I’m fairly new to Star Trek my father was really into TNG but I was too young to understand it. Recently, in the last three or four years, I have really been getting back into the series. I watched TNG and DS9 from beginning to end and now I’m working on TOS. I am from Washington State. I am really excited to find this site I really enjoy talking Trek!!!

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

Welcome Zeratul! I hope you continue to enjoy it. It looks like you've already watched more that me.

I've been through all of DS9, all the movies, most of VOY, scattered episodes from TNG, one or two from TOS and only "Broken Bow" from ENT. I don't remember doing this introduction thing actually. Good that I'm doing it now then.
