Normal is what everyone else is and you are not.

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

Hello. Newbie here. Like several others who have posted, I have been a Star Trek fan for many years, yet, somehow, never thought to look for a definitive place for fans to hang out. I was born in the 70's, so I can remember watching TOS re-runs as well as the animated series when I was a kid. In middle school TNG came out and I was enamored all over again. Especially since there was a character/actor on the show my age. Yep. Good ol' Wesley. I watched every episode of TNG as they aired, glued to the TV every night it was on. I also liked DS9 a lot, but after that I moved in other directions. I wouldn't say my interested waned, just that other things gained importance. College, working, relationships, etc.

In all my years of being a fan I have never been to a convention, and I have always wanted to go. I decided that there was no sense in putting it off indefinitely and it was time to check one out. Doing that made me think..."Hey, I wonder if there's a definitive place for Trekkies to hang out online...

And so there is. And here I am.

@EnterpriseGeek: Hello again!

@Amyk: Welcome. So, you're the one who liked Wesley (aside from Gene Roddenberry).

Welcome newbies (and returning newbies... lol)! Don't forget to check out the Redshirt Lounge. It is a good place to meet other newbies, play games and just have a little fun.

I learned about TrekBBS from a www.trekmovie.com article about a new Star Trek movie [yeah the 2009 one]. Now we have a new one being planned and lots of new gossip/rumurs, etc. to enjoy.

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

Ah, so this is where the introduction thread lies.

Newbie to the forums. TOS fan since I was a kid, first saw it on the Sci-fi channel about 10 ~ 11 years ago. I really enjoy TOS and I haven't really gotten into the other Trek series other than DS9. I loved Sisko and Bashir. Enterprise was a difficult one...

I never really took part in Star Trek fandom, I mostly lurked around over the years but the reboot re-lit that spark for the series again and now I'm diving into fandom with full force. I haven't been to a "trek" convention nor have I really engaged in the whole Star Trek lifestyle... Life, school, work etc... but I'm now opening that door again and allowing Mr. Spock back into my life, lol.

Every other place that I have engaged in Trek fandom since the reboot have mostly been communities dedicated to slashing K/S and or the actors (Nimoy/Shat and Pine/Quinto) which is definitely not my deal... I just wanted to find a community that actually talks about the show and not really the all the romance/slash/Uhura-bashing. This place seems pretty cool so far !

Newb alert!

Greeting from the land of guiness and O'Brien,

The names Lanny. I've been a trek fan pretty much since I was a kid watching TNG and DS9 in the 90's on RTÉ. Since then, I've been an utter sci-fi addict. Stumbled across this forum a few weeks back and been lurking pretty much since.
