@EnterpriseGeek: Hello again!

@Amyk: Welcome. So, you're the one who liked Wesley (aside from Gene Roddenberry).
HUGE crush on Wesley. Wil Wheaton and I are about the same age. Thank you for the nice welcome! Enjoying the forum very much. It's been helpful and informative. And funny too!

I suppose Wil Wheaton isn't that bad looking.

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

I've been off the boards for a long time, but I've decided to check in again (having slow days at work helps).

Is there a Trek chat board? You know there really should be.

Hi All,

I've probably posted here already but forgot. I joined ages ago but then got distracted with other boards. I was born a trekkie and I seem to be getting more obsessed every year!

Welcome back, both of you!

@Saspearia: Should be pretty easy to find out if you have posted here before.

And did it: Your first post was on October 25th 2010:

Uh... do all beginners here rank cadet or is the academy unusually expandable?

^Yes, all beginners start as cadets. You rank up as you post more. Welcome to the board!

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

OK... I'll start with cadet. That's fine with me (so as to say... really really .. really.. fine with me... well... maybe a little frustrated? I don't know... uh.. so be it.. then) (Hell! I'm a doctor.. don't science officers and doctors start with lieutenant?)

So.. I'm in the academy. What next? Oh.. wait. There's something I'd really really love to try. THE STARBUST TRICK! Can I fly that? Please...

Hey, JKK. Perhaps I am misreading your posts, and forgive me if I am, but this place isn't an MMORPG, it's just a message board to talk about trek. The ranks are pretty meaningless and really only determine which lounge you can post in. Again, sorry if I misread your intention.

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

I don't believe I've posted in this thread. I joined some years ago then left, and recently came back.

I've been a Star Trek fan all my life, though I was an adult before I realized it.

When I was a kid, I used to have a babysitter (and her friends) who would watch TOS reruns when I was over. My parents were strict and didn't let me watch much TV, so I didn't see it outside my babysitters and didn't talk about it at all.

Some years later in college, I got into TNG through reruns and I happened across an episode of TOS. I was like, "Hey, so THIS is the original Star Trek series people keep talking about! I didn't realize I'd seen it before." It was weird recognizing the show, yet not having remembered that it is Star Trek. That's when I knew I was home.

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

Well.. what do ya know. People around here are nice enough to let me know where am I and what I can do. Thanks (sorry if you thought of me as fooling around.. I didn't mean to. Just trying to get some attention.)

But I believe I should be more of a listener here. My knowledge on 'Trek' isn't broad enough.. I think. Thanks people.. for the tip. (I'll try not to be so annoying next time.. I promise)
