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

Hey all. Just joined. Never posted on forums before but couldn't resist chatting about star trek Currently working my way through every star trek book ever written. Much easier now I have a kindle. Some of the older paper backs were a struggle to find or way too expensive, but haven't had any trouble finding everytihing in ebook format (even if some of them had to come off the darknet . Birthday is in a couple of weeks and I've got my fingers crossed for the Movie boxset on blu-ray Cheers. James.

Thanks Sector 7 and hello to james - I'm currently working my way through TOS on DVD and am thinking about looking for TOS, TNG and DS9 books.

Hey Kirsten. The DS9 relaunch books have been epic would definitely start there before the other relaunch books. But they are all good.

Thanks for the recommedation - DS9 has always been my favourite so I will give the books a go. Are there any in particular that you found really good?

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

Hey, My name's Russ.

I'm a long-time fan of Star Trek, it was TNG that got me into Trek in the first place. I knew of Trek and really liked "Wrath of Khan" and "Voyage Home", but I couldn't describe myself as a fan until after I saw TNG. Now, I have most episodes of TOS, TNG, DS9 memorized or at least know the title of the episode within seconds of turning it on. I never did jump on the VOY bandwagon, however.

My favorite charaters are: La Forge and Picard.

My favorite episodes include: Tin Man, The Defector, Yesterday's Enterprise, and the Inner Light.

I'm a big fan of the ships themselves and their histories in Trek.

Welcome, satyrquaze! It is good to see new members bonding, too. Check out the Redshirt Lounge as soon as you are able. It is a good place to get to know each other better.

Just a note for all newbies: The Lounges are a good place for fun, games and fellowship with people of similar rank (time aboard & post count). Look for one and join in. As you move up in rank, you gain access to the appropriate lounge [Captain's Lounge, Fleet Captain's Lounge, etc.].

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

Hi everyone names Darryl, I got involved in Trek in July (I had seen some episodes of TNG when I was younger at my nans but I wasn't really paying attention as I preferred superheroes) after a repeated viewing of 'The Voyage Home' I decided I was gonna watch the series, I bought the 1st season of TOS and loved it from the 1st episode of 'Man Trap' (the dvd listings go from the original air date, as I know now that 'Where No Man Has Gone Before' is the 1st episode but 3rd on the dvd) and quickly went through the season then season 2 and 3, I then bought the Special Collectors boxset of I-X, then proceeded to the TNG series, and after watching all of them and revisiting certain episodes and multiple viewings of the films, I can't believe its only been about 4 months since I decided to watch ST as it feels like I've watched it my whole life by the way I feel about it and the characters (Spock being my favourite). Like many I was put off ST because of the negative view of the fans portrayed by the mainstream, however have come to learn that the view of Trekkies/Trekkers is mostly false (a small minority are what the mainstream paint them as) and am proud to call myself a Trekker.

I look forward to watching DS9(I have already seen the Tribble episode and think I'll enjoy this series) and Voyager, I have heard some negative things about Enterprise, but I'll judge it myself. I've seen some of the episodes of TAS and think they are awful, mostly due to the animation but I feel I have to watch them so at some time I'm gonna.

Guess I'll end with Live Long and Prosper!

Welcome aboard, D.W.C.! Some of those stereotype Trekkies are members, but the majority are fairly normal fans.

Glad to help. We all started out as Redshirts... most of us survived to tell our tales.

Hi folks. Been a moderate Trek fan for decades but for some reason have slid almost into full blown geekdom. Probably all started when one of my bands start singing Klingon (and other intergalatic) music!
