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

Hello, galaxy.

I was remiss not to post here first. I've been a fan of TOS Trek virtually since I could speak, and grew up with TNG Trek, too. I'm also very fond of Babylon 5 (particularly the Commander Sheridan/Bruce Bauxleitner period thereof), of Joss Whedon's Firefly, of Battlestar Galactica in both the old version and the new (for different reasons), and I think also (although I've never actually played the game, just seen videos of the content) of the Mass Effect universe.

For some reason I've never sought out a forum like this one, but I'm very glad I eventually found it. It seems a very welcoming place full of smart and fascinating people, and I'm delighted to have the chance to be a part of it.

Hello
I'm a late Trekker/Trekkie. My first encounter with Trek was NextGen and The Wrath of Khan in reruns.
Miri was my first classic Trek. Still not sure in what bizarro universe they thought that Kim Darby looked 13. She looked ready for the Prom.

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

Probably should have done this earlier, but I'm still relatively new.

Been a Trek fan for 20 years now. I got into it mainly because I had just seen the Star Wars movies on USA Network for the first time and wanted to see more space adventures. The same network was airing THE MOTION PICTURE, so that was my first slice of Trek. After that, I got into the rest of the films, enjoyed them enough that my folks got all the six films on VHS for me. Funny thing is that I was completely unaware that there was a TV show with more adventures with Kirk and did not see an episode until August of 1994. It was "The Enterprise Incident", I remember that because the VCR had to be timed for past midnight and there was no other way of seeing the show on TV. It was pretty strange seeing the same crew, yet much younger and in a lower budget, but still fun.

Over the years since then, I didn't watch every episode of Trek religiously. I'd go see the TNG movies in theaters, even though I didn't see much of TNG until TNN started airing reruns in 2001. Same thing with DS9 once that aired in reruns in 2005, and then VOY in 2007. I did try to watch ENT when that started, but I didn't commit so I dropped out 8 episodes in. I wouldn't get to finally watch every single episode of every show until 2009 as I rented on Netflix. I'm glad I did, even if I thought VOY was mostly a waste.

Because of that experience, I always encourage anyone who wants to try out a franchise to watch everything if they can, rather than just ask others opinions on which bits to see. When I'm asked which Bond films to see, I'd tell them my favorites but ultimately encourage people to see them all to form their own opinions, because they might find something enjoyable in a movie I might not have cared for. Same with Trek. I don't care for VOY, but it does have its fans so I don't discourage anyone.

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

[QUOTE=Sector 7;3775431]What is this prejudice towards Klingons? LOL

I'm not really aware of a prejudice towards Klingons. I've always liked them just fine in the Star Trek Saga. They do come in handy when a "bad" guy is needed. But, I think most are misunderstood because of their proudness of their heritage. They see humans as extreme weaklings...almost pathetic in a way. But that is just the way their society sees things...and it's been unchanged for thousands of years. It was "Might Is Right" and "Only the Strongest Survive." I read that their home-world is really harsh...so they had to be harsh to survive it. But the same can be said of Vulcan...and the Vulcans are very peaceful...although...some of them view humanity as pathetic as well.

A trekkie since birth I think I've watched all the movies and all television series at least twice, I own the entire collection.

Anyway, I create music for fun in my spare time and considering I'm *such* a trekkie I thought making a TOS tune with video just.felt.right.

Glad to be here and looking forward to another movie.

Paul.

Thanks for all the welcomes! It's taken me a while find my way back to this thread can I say I was stuck in a transport buffer or is that too predictable an excuse?

Welcome 2takesfrakes.

I feel like I should know what "2takesfrakes" might refer to - but I could only guess it's either his ability to nail his acting scenes in 2 takes or that when he's directing he sets the upper limit on takes or shots as "2"?
