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

Hi all! First posting here to say hello, love all of Trek, even the rubbish bits (maybe especially the rubbish bits!) Favourite series is TOS, favourite character Picard and favourite episode All Good Things.

Looking forward to chatting around the forum

Have you found the redshirts forum? It's a good way of getting to know other people who have recently joined.

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

Hi folks! Just popped in to say 'hi'. Which I just did. So ...


Hey, I know, I could tell something about me and my relationship to Star Trek. Let's see ...

My first contact with Star Trek was an audio play cassette of the TNG episode "Haven". I was, like, 5 years old, and up until then, my idea of a spaceship was what Lego and Playmobil had shown me. Small ships that only contain cockpits, room for two or three persons (figurines) at best. So, now I was being told a story (without any images to go with it) that took place on a spaceship with a bridge, a transporter room, a holodeck, and dozens of people (as far as I could tell) on board. As you can imagine, I had to get my head around that one.

When I was eight, TOS and TNG were on tv weekday afternoons (not at the same time, mind you), but my mom only allowed me to watch one episode per week. Thanks to that (and the incredibly high prices of the DVDs) there are still episodes of TOS and TNG that I have not yet seen.
But our local library had the German editions of James Blish's novelizations of the TOS episodes, and at a flee market, I bought a copy of the TNG novel "Masks" by John Vornholt. Back then, I didn't get the distinctive "The Next Generation", it was simply Star Trek to me (or rather "Raumschiff Enterprise" as it was titled in Germany back then). Still, I understood that there were two different Enterprises with two different crews, so I figured that one was by James Blish and one was by John Vornholt. Just so you know, I have learned better by now.

So, "Star Trek" was the biggest thing for me in my childhood, reading James Blish's novelizations, watching an episode per week, playing with the TNG action figures and my own Star Trek toys build with Lego.
Well, I lost interest in my teenage years, but I've rediscovered my love for it since.
I still have that Playmates model of the Enterprise D with lights and sound I got for christmas back when I was nine. And I truely treasure it. Hey, maybe I should get myself some Lego and start building a bridge again.

Right. I'll keep that in mind.

To be honest, I see ST as assemble shows, the characters work mostly off of each other (in those shows that work, anyway). But I really like McCoy (and I don't just say that because of your obvious liking to the character). I'm an idealist, sometimes a bleeding heart, and I can identify with Bones that way. Plus, he's got a great sense of humor. I guess, the TOS crew is probably my favorite ST assemble. Other than that, I really liked Picard (well, he's an obvious one), Dax and T'Pol (although it was obvious that the producers wanted to recreate this "detached sexy babe" thing that worked for Seven of Nine, I just thank the Great Bird of the Galaxy that Jolene Blalock also happened to be a good actress).

As for actors, well, there is actually no actor on ST that I don't like in some way. Well, maybe John Cho, because I really don't get what actually qualified him for Sulu. As for recurring guest stars, I liked Shran very much. And Q. Well, TNG-Q, at least.
