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

Hi there.

This being my 1st post on this forum, I'll tell you a little bit about me.

The earliest Star Trek I can remember watching was the annimated series in 1973 or 74. Then in the mid-late 70's I began watching TOS with my sisters after school. I have been watching Star Trek in one form or another ever since.

I attended my only ST convention in about 1982.

I have seen all the movies in the theater. I remember the huge excitement about The Motion Picture (only the special effects lived up to my hopes).

My interest in Star Trek has really be rekindled lately because, at a loss for decent family programming, my wife and I started to watch TNG with our two boys (8 & 10) about a year ago and ST has now become part of our family culture. I can't wait until a ST convention comes to Minneapolis - my boys will love it.

Tomorrow is my birthday and I am hoping to get some DVD's from family members and my wife is going to buy me a tunic and pants from a custom maker.

I have been checking out this forum for several months and I thought it was time I registered and began participating in the discussion.

Cheers.
-John

My daughter is eight and has been raised on a tv-free diet, however she's now started seeing movies and plays video games (supervised and rationed, natch). I'm planning on watching all the Trek I have on DVD soon (and gap-filling by finally buying Voyager and Enterprise) and feel it's time to welcome her into the fold. Hopefully the experiment is a success!

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

Hi! I'm Kelly, I'm an undergrad pursuing studies in Art History, Film, and Theatre, and I just found Star Trek less than a year ago. My roommie introduced me to The Big Bang Theory, and they just reference Star Trek so much I thought, gee, this is such a phenomenon, I should check it out! And there went my study time (in less than I year I have seen all of TOS, TNG, and Voyager... but hey it's not like you get outside much in the winter in Canada). AHAH I just love knowing, as proven in the existence and fanbase of Star Trek, that there are other people out there who dream of the same kind of world I do



Glad to be here!

Love it. unfotunaly I dont have any friends who are in to this show (its very lonely when you see a great episode and no one is there to talk abput it with you) so I figured I could talk about it online!
