Hi from a newbie :) Please read my babble

Hi

Babble it is im afraid.

A big hello from Sunny Scotland. Actually its -5 and windy and grey and wet and rotten, but hello nonetheless.

This is my first post and i just wanted to ask a few things.

I was never into the original TOS when i was younger, though i always loved the Enterprise of that era. My first real love of Trekkiness came with TNG.

Voyager i thought was ok, DS9 i never really got into and ENT was actually ok after i kind of warmed to it.

My problem is that i feel that ST is sort of stuck in a time warp. Over here in the UK, Virgin1 regularly show VOY and TNG, and Bravo have VOY and DS9. However, most of the people i know will not watch any of it.
It took me long enough to convince people to go see the new ST film, but when they see me talk about ST stuff or tell them i still watch TNG they think im crazy and some sort fo 80's reject.

How do we bring ST back to being relevant today?
I still think that the morals and social aspirations in ST are brilliant..... if only it were real then the world would be a much better place, more so than ever we need a reminder of tolerance and understanding.

I guess a new series would be good.... but i get the impression its not likely to happen (for the next 5 years at least), more films would help too (though i still kind of want more TNG style films.... thats not going to happen ever though i suspect).

Anyway..... I've said nothing important, interesting, fun or exciting on my first post....... i promise that future posts will be much more exciting, maybe..........

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

Okay, I registered a year ago but I'm a total noob because I didn't come back and start participating until yesterday! Oops, my bad.

I've been a Star Trek fan since the playpen, when TOS was the only one and in syndication. I love all the Trek series but right now I'm on a major Enterprise jag. I'll be going to the Vegas con this summer, my first Trek con sice the mid 90s. I write fanfic and am the editor in chief of an old-school paper-style fanzine.

I am a hairdresser in the Detroit area, but this past fall I returned to school to finish the degrees I started in English and Electronic Media. I have one cat, Elvis, 17, who is cuter than anything has any business being.

Looking forward to getting to know you all and making some new friends.

Cheers!

Re: Hi from a newbie :) Please read my babble

Hello and welcome to the board! This is only my 2nd post.

If they don't want to watch Star Trek, then there isn't much you can do. With shows like Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Universe, True Blood, United States of Tara, and others my interest in Star Trek is waning.

Do they even enjoy other sci-fi shows? You like TNG so I'd go with Genesis, Timescape, or other episodes like that which are suspenseful. They may appeal to a more new viewer.

I hear you. I don't know any Trek fans around here either apart from my husband. Thank goodness he's as much a Trek fan as I am.

Well that's sort of the funny thing: I haven't been lurking, either...I just haven't been here! "Lurker" would've been a promotion lol.
