I would like to suggest two threads if I may. I put this here because I don't know where else to put it and i still can't start new threads.


I just finished watching TMP. And I've come to realize something about it for the first time.

I think this movie inadvertently predicted the coming of the NSA.

Here's how I came to that realization.

At the beginning we see the monitoring station, well, monitoring the Klingons attack V'Ger.

Then I realized that that station is a lot like the NSA complex in Utah. It has sophisticated monitoring technology to monitor an incredibly large terriory of outer space.

BUT whether it is meant to intentionally spy on Klingon space, or is just to monitor interstellar phenomenon for scientific purposes, or is just a station to monitor the Federation space and possible incursions into it, well, that has never really been truly defined.

Here is the website for that Utah complex:

You see, this complex is for the monitoring of all 320 million Americans and millions more people overseas, friend and foe alike.

So, this raises ethical questions, of course, and the possibility that if that base is for espionage, then could it have been set up by Section 31?


We all know that original Kirk has a love affair with his ship that is so strong that no woman can tie him down. The Enterprise will ALWAYS pull him back.

BUT, i think that there is the possibility that there is one other man who might out do him.

And that is Scotty.

For while kirk has the connection, Scotty knows the vessel intimately and will even fight Klingons for her honor.

So I put the question to you? Who do you think loves the Enterprise more, Kirk or Scotty?
I would love to see these be made. I recommend for the NSA thing put it in "Trek Other" As well a for the enterprise conundrum.

And please do alert me when they are up I would love to respond to them!

Hi everyone. Just found this site a couple days ago and joined up! I've been a huge fan of the original series and James Kirk/William Shatner since childhood. Thanks for adding me and I am excited to meet fellow lovers of Star Trek!
Welcome fellow Trekkie Chick! It is a fun sight 95% of the time. only 5% of people are people to avoid. I love all the discussions and threads. I'm on here every day

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

Hello, everyone!

I am beyond surprised that this screenname was not already taken, but I'm glad to have the handle of my favorite captain!

My fiancé recently got me watching Star Trek. I never thought I would watch it; I had no interest. But while I was working on a huge project one day he put on Voyager from the beginning, and from that day on it was all over. I'm currently on the 5th season of Voyager and the 5th season of TNG. I found the pilot of TOS a little too sexist, but I'm willing to give the rest of TOS a chance. I've also recently started Deep Space 9.

I know there are lots of people who don't like Enterprise, and I kinda get their point already. The thing I like so much about Star Trek is the exploration, and I'm afraid Enterprise will be too far in the past that there won't be anything new (for the viewer) to explore! I will, of course, watch this series, too, but this is just my first impression--not my final verdict!

I'm excited to talk to other people who love this series. I'm not attached to any of the preconceived notions I have about any of the series. I have enjoyed almost all of the episodes I've watched so far, and I'll be excited to have seen them all.

Here are my favorite characters in no particular order (limited right now to Voyager and TNG):

-Seven of Nine
-Kes (for the first three seasons at least; her last ones were a little off to me)
-The Doctor

Least favorite characters so far:

-Riker (he's so lecherous!)

Actually. I thought there would be more least favorite characters, but Riker actually seems to be the only one to rub me the wrong way at this point. Hmm.

Anyway, nice to meet everyone!

You should check out the Voyager forum, I'm sure another Janeway will be appreciated.

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

Hi, my name's Elizabeth. I've been a fan of Star Trek only since 2013. I started out with the reboot movies, then went on to TOS and the first six of that era of movies. TOS is by far my favorite, with Spock being my favorite character. (When I learned of Mr. Nimoy's passing it hurt me in my heart).

I found this site a couple months ago when looking for a Star Trek forum to join, and have only recently made an account. I'm happy to have found this place as I have no one irl with which to discuss Star Trek or any other of my fandoms like Supernatural.

Um, I don't know what else to say, but thank for running a great forum.
