Hiiiii everyone. My name is Cyndi and I'm kind of shy. My favorite Trek character of all time is Odo. I like to sing, I do a lot of daydreaming and I love DS9.

Hey all,

I'm Graysen - yeah, I suck at coming up with original usernames lol.

I've been a fan of Star Trek for a few years now and am stoked for the new movie.

Tonk'peh - My name is T'Laina. I have been a Star Trek fan for many years and took it upon myself to learn the Vulcan Language, which I now teach on tumblr. I am actually obsessed with the Vulcan language and culture - and that's a good thing. It saved me. I am twenty-one, and live in Manitoba.

Dif-tor heh smusma.

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

Posting here because I'm having a bit of a Trekkie revival lately. I'm doing things I haven't done in 20 years, building models, watching Trek specials I havent seen on youtube, even going to my first convention in 20 years in April.

I'm 42, and have been on Trekbbs since 1999, though sometimes my appearances here are wildly sporadic. I'm married, have two stepdaughters. I live in NJ, USA. I have pics on profile. I'm excited for STNG, ENT on bluray and the new movie.

I didn't even know someone had created a complete Vulcan language. I thought it was only fragmentary. I used some of it for a fan fic I never finished but I only found pages with some vocabulary and phrases online when I searched for it.

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

Well, I've been posting for about a week now so I guess it's time I introduced myself.
My Name's Michael. I'm 41 and I've been a Trekkie/Trekker (either term is acceptable to me) since about 1986/87. I had some knowledge of Star Trek before that (had seen TMP and TSFS in theaters TWOK only on Home-video/HBO) But I really got into it when Voyage home was coming out and a PBS type channel had started airing Trek on Saturday Nights (3 eps uncut and commercial Free 11:30-2:30ish) I was a member of the official fan club for about three or four Years)

My primary watching interests is The Original series, The Animated series Original Cast Movies and the Next Generation

I also am a fan of the surrounding literature and comics

My favorite books (many of which I still view maintain under the heading "Personal Canon"
include
Spock's World by Diane Duane (particularly for it's Vulcan history)
Strangers from the Sky by Margaret Wander Bonano
Yesterday's Son
Time for Yesterday both by A.C. Crispin
Vulcan's Glory by D.C. Fontana
Enterprise the First Adventure by Vonda N. McIntyre
The Kobayashi Maru by Julia Ecklar
The Khan trilogy by Greg Cox
as well as a few others here and there.

I also Recognize both of D.C. Comics' Runs set during the Movie Era (between Wrath of Khan and beyond The Undiscovered Country (although I favor the previously mentioned Enterprise over the 1st DC Annual which is an alternate story of the First Mission)

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

Hello!

Kinda new to Star Trek, although I used to watch the Next Generation while growing up, I wasn't what I'd call a fan but as I've grown older, I've grown an interest in Science and Sci-fi.
I have a fair amount of spare time at work, and been watching Enterprise, now I've got a taste for the other franchise's, I guess I'll go chronologically, not episodes but seasons,
Next up Star Trek The Original Series!

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

Hi.
I just joined today, the day after I booked my tickets for the next movie.
I have been a fan of Star Trek longer than you've been alive
I fancied myself to be quite knowledgeable about Trek until I lurked around the forums and realised I didn't know all that much. That won't stop me from commenting though.

I'm a big big big TOS fan. Over the years however I have warmed a bit to the other series and the movies.

If I make any faux pas in my posts here please tell me.

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

Greetings...

First generation Trekker here... Treknical fan for the most part, with a fixation on continuity and timelines... Grew up collecting and over-analyzing Treknical blueprints and manuals, to sick and demented levels... Taking notes on TOS and TAS episodes, the usual thing... Taped all the episodes, attended the earliest cons, read the old zines... Read all the books, or am in the process of reading all of them... Studied under some of the Greats in the field of Treknology including ____ _____ and have a shrine to _____ ______...and am a member of ____... Been hanging out in online places since the 80s: RIME, Fidonet, Abusenet, whateveryoucallit... Did lots and lots of typing... Fan bickering and a Borg-like conformity drove me away and into seclusion more times than I can count... Came on here because it was recommended to me by _____ _____ among other bizarre reasons...

P.S. I'm 100% single, and if there are any Trekkesses in my sector who'd like to get together sometime...

Welcome, Lenny Nurdbol! I hope you enjoy yourself here and HOLY CRAP you've already made Lieutenant-Commander!? I'm slacking off here.

By the way, I'm the illogical girl who disregarded your (probably good) advice not to start watching Enterprise, and went and did it anyway. But I'm having a great time tearing apart the lazy writing and continuity errors. So it's all good.
