I have merged your thread with the Official Welcome Thread, akinderthekid. (We don't allow separate introduction threads.)

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

Hi all,

Been a fan since around 1991 (when I was 11) and have been a fan since , though it has waxed and waned over the years. I am now set a goal, to watch every star trek ever made. Watched almost all of DS9, a lot of TNG, and not much else except for the movies. Still confused on how to make a avatar on this board.

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

I've also decided to watch all of my Trek end-to-end and gapfill the series I don't have: TOS Remastered, The Animated Series, Voyager and Enterprise. I'm still not getting Star Trek V or the TNG films, and I'll likely skip all but the last couple of TNG S1 episodes but it should be fun.

I don't view the avatars myself; animated gifs make me queasy.

Indeed, though if you have not seen them, The Battle, Where no man has gone before, and the Big goodbye are worth watching from the first half of TNG S1.

I can go as far as UserCP>Edit Avatar but it has no option to choose file. Aha, I have not been a member for two weeks, so no avatar for me (yet)

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)
My Trek knowledge is not as encylopaedic as some and I still post quite a bit so make yourself at home

Hello to other new members too.

I have seen them, that's why I don't want to watch them again. Honestly I'm impressed TNG survived with a first season that bad!

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

Hi! I'm brand new here. Just a Trek fan, mostly TNG and beyond. I'm presently living in an 18-wheeler with my Papa while our family recovers from a financially disastrous 2010. To me it's a shuttlecraft, lol. This site looks like lots of fun and I'm looking forward to making some new friends here. But it may be several days between visits since I'm on the road alot and have to find wifi. -Robin
