I was introduced to trek by my dad as a young child (I remember TNG as being 'that cool show' that my mom made him turn off whenever I came in the room. I guess she thought it was too scary for a five-year old ) today it is my favorite of the various series.
Ha! It was the same for me in the late 90's/early 2000's (re-runs).
I remember having nightmares about one episode. "The Game" I think. Worf also scared me.

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

Hi! I'm GSnail, you can call me Ollie, Olli, Olly, or Snicklefritz. I came because of the caption contest. I've been lurking for almost a year and a half.
I was a Voyager fan when I was really little, forgot about Trek for a while, then when the new movie came out, I got hooked on TOS.
I like eggs.
Oh yeah and PONIES!

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

Hi, I'm new here.

I've mostly been a rabid Doctor Who fan for nearly 30 years now, but I'm currently taking an extended break from DW. Honestly, I've felt lately that my preoccupation with Doctor Who has become a bit psychologically "unhealthy" -- given that Trek is another big cult show, maybe some of you can relate to this.

Anyway, I recently watched all of TAS, and I am working through TOS now. I had seen numerous TOS episodes over the years, but several I have never seen. I may move on to TNG, DS9, etc., but I do love old television the most, so the later series (some scattered episodes of which I have seen) may not be as near and dear to me as TOS/TAS.

Anyhow, I wanted to say hello.

^That's a shame, there's a DW forum on the BBS. If you ever get back into it (Although maybe not as much 'into it' as you made out you were), it's there.

Anyways, welcome to the board.

LOL, thanks. It was more a matter of being seriously tired of Doctor Who and wanting to devote more attention to other interests. But I started to feel this ridiculous ANXIETY (unusually bad anxiety too) about not having DW in my life anymore. Luckily, I'm mostly over that now, and having an alternative thing like Star Trek helps.

I know, "it's just a TV show." But having something be a part of your life for 25+ years, and then deciding that you're tired of that something and don't particularly like it anymore -- it can just be a strange adjustment, let's say.

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

I've been here a while. I got into Star Trek because of Star Wars. I saw Star Wars at 6 or 7 in the theaters. Then I saw Star Trek the Motion Picture. I kept being into Star Wars but kept remembering that other space movie that had a different and better feeling. Saw TWOK and liked it. It wasn't until the time between TWOK and TSFS that I put it all together and realized that it was based on a show. I really got into it between TSFS and TVH due to a friend who introduced me to a lof of Trek related stuff. He took me to see Jams Doohan when he came to a local college as a special speaker. I've been hooked since.

I really only like the the first three movies. There are many TOS episodes I love and a few TNG. The rest is okay and there are some highlights for me but the first three movies are what I really enjoy.

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

Hello all!

I just joined. I fell in love with Trek as a kid in the '80s, holding the rabbit ears TV antenna to watch TNG during its original run, then kept watching DS9, Voyager, etc.

To introduce myself, I'm 29, originally from the gulf coast, in Mobile, Alabama (it's a pretty big city two hours straight east of New Orleans) though I've lived in New York City since 2008. I've had a rare form of muscular dystrophy all my life, and I've lived on a ventilator for over 17 years now. Though I have a lot in common with Captain Pike in real life, I do all I can; I spend most of my time online and am a student and wanna-be sci-fi author.

I know it is a lot to take in, but I hope to make friends here, and get to know lots of fellow Trekkers here.

Nick
