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

Thank you, Count.

i've noticed that, and i find that decision to be rather odd. Not bad~ just- odd. Beyond my understanding, i suppose- because to me, it makes 'the thing' Dead... Past... Gone... Done.

And i think of in- universe things as very much Alive, Dynamic: Still with a story to tell, a future, even more Past... given the nature of Star Trek.

Maybe it's to help distinguish Fantasy from Reality, for those who would be confounded???

That's one thing that bothers me about Memory Alpha. Probably the only thing, as that website is so wonderfully extensive in its scope. But yes, I agree with you about the past tense. It feels off.

hi Minuet...

i remember your character fondly! Thank you for making me feel welcome.

Yes, i wasn't meaning to Dis Memory Alpha at all... Clearly it's a great achievement of Collective Volunteerism.... want to make that clear to any contributors... well done! But the tense thing is a bit of a non-starter for me...

Well, I've been mostly reading about all things Romulan on Memory Alpha lately and the past tense seemed kind of appropriate there. It made me a bit sad, though.

Don't be Sad, Count.... Here, have a Tribble. They're SWEET & CUDDLY. They Purr.

And since they're Vermin, you can Shoot them silly if you find that to be more therapeutic. Worf Does.

Just don't get them Wet.

or... wait... is it don't feed them? or don't expose them to Light? Or don't dangle your infant above a Den of them at the Zoo? Arse. I'm getting Old.

Ummm, really tho, please Do NOT shoot. They're Sentient, too, you know. and No Tribble Souffle, either. It just isn't nice. i'll take her back if you don't want her. Darn! my mother TOLD me not to give Pets as Presents... when will i learn?

Well, now there are hundreds of them. Don't worry, though, I won't shoot them.

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

Hi there guys, so... this is the first Trek forum I join, i've been an active member in other movie related forums (rpf, jedi council, indygear...) for the last couple of years and am certainly looking forward to having a laugh or two in this, for me, new community.

Kind regards from Europe.,

No problem!

I'm kind of new here myself, so, we'll conquer this place together.

Hello everyone I'm new so I thought I would say hello, I've been a fan of the show since the 70's messing about with the models from the saga for about the same amount of time

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

Hi Everyone

After watching the Star Trek Film(2009) a few years ago I promised myself I would start watching the TV series, well a week or so ago TOS arrived on my TV's on demand so I started watching it now I'm hooked and will be picking up the box sets very soon. Better late than never I guess

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

Hi fellow Trekkies.
I have migrated here from Star Trek.com boards (I became disillusioned. I'm sure some of you know why)
Bin a fan since TOS and am now in my 60's. Hope that's not too sad.
Think I will lurk for a while before I post and look forward to enjoying everyones input.
Really glad to have found this board. The vibes seem good.

LLAP.

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

Heya, I'm Jason. I just joined and I'm hoping to find a new and awesome place to talk, and what better place than one where I'm in the company of fellow Trekkies who know what I'm talking about. Such a thing doesn't exist in the real world where I am. I'm the only Trek fan for miles, and there's nothing worse than hearing a deluded "huh?!" when I start talking Trek tech. Anyways, glad to be here!
