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

I am Daniël, a 17 year old boy from the netherlands I go the a university of applied sciences (hanzehogeschool groningen) i started watching star trek in summer 2012, watching it ever since. I got the idea to watch star trek because of the Voyager reruns in my childhood, i still had some vague memories of them and i always had a thing for sci-fi. Now more then a year later i've watched VOY, TNG, DS9 and i am now busy with Enterprise. I already watched all the movies and i saw STID in the cinema I have also started on the novel series The fall, but its a little expensive for me.

btw, Janeway ftw!

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

Hello everyone. I'm here for a week, already have some posts, and I liked your community very much, so I decided to post here.
As some of you could notice from my posts, I'm from Яussia (I bet you didn't have Russians on board before ).
*Note: My knowledge of English is not bad. Still, there are possible punctual/syntactic mistakes, wrong prepositions, or using wrong words, which I apologise for.

I'm a student in a Moscow Aviation Institute, on a second (of five) year of study, with a future speciality of 'spacecraft designing, producing and operation'. Although it is not necessarily means I will be the real space engineer, but I sincerely hope that I will be working on 'operation' part when I finish studiyng, which is quiet possible - many of Soviet/Russian cosmonauts graduated from our university.
A little offtop: I was surprised to know that in Starfleet Academy dormitories they use hinged doors instead of typical futuristic sliding doors, LOL (TNG S05E19 if you are interested). I've noticed that because I live in dormitories myself.

I must note that I started to be interested in Star Trek after I enrolled to university, so I can't say that 'Star Trek defined my destiny' or something like that. What I knew about Trek before actually meeting with a franchise, was 'greeting of Spock' and the design of Federation starships, which most of the people heard about. At the first time, I watched 2009 movie on TV and, frankly, it didn't impress me very much. Two years ago, a new friend of mine persuaded me to watch TOS and guess what happened next
I'm currently on Season 6 of TNG and keep going.

Also, someone was interested in the nature of my nickname. No, it's not my real name/surname, it is the character name from Soviet sci-fi animation movie (I expected to use him as my avatar but found that I cannot upload an avatar until 50 posts or something).

I'm sure we've had a few.

Now, say "Nuclear Wessels"!!!

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

Hi, I'm new to this, but created an accout because I need some help to resolve an argument between my partner and myself. We both had to chose 3 characters from any star trek series (other than Q) to be our crew on a mystery away mission. I chose Captian Picard, Data and Odo, and felt I had it covered. My parter chose Seven of nine, the holographic doctor from voyager and Quark! I said they had to be kidding! but they are still insistant that their away team would do better than mine! Votes or comments to resolve the matter would be appreciated, so please tell me what you think!! thanks

Welcome to TrekBBS. To answer your question, you're both right and you're both wrong.

Hope you enjoy the forum.

Welcome, newbies! I hope you all enjoy it here!

Zelenyj, lovely to see somebody from Russia here. I was actually wondering for a while there where you Russian Trek fans were hiding. I imagine the Moscow Aviation Institute has a few.

Welcome and enjoy your stay!
