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

Hi all! I found this forum awhile back and just signed up. I'm a TNG fan from long ago who recently became re-interested in the Trek universe.

I was a rabid TNG fan during its original run and my fandom spread out from that to the original series movies and TOS itself. Unfortunately, I found DS9 incredibly boring and kind of lost interest in Star Trek after the Generations movie, which I hated. I never saw Voyager or Enterprise or any of the other TNG movies (until yesterday, when I watched Insurrection on Netflix).

Anyway, I guess my interest was re-ignited with the J. J. Abrams Star Trek movie, which I thought was very well done, despite some qualms I might have about the direction it's being taken.

I'm currently re-watching TNG and remembering how good it was when it was at its best.

Welcome, deep_edward! You should check out First Contact, it's generally seen as the best TNG film.

I'd agree with that. It's my favourite of the TNG films.

*Awkward hello* Primarily it's TOS for me; I'm still making my way through TNG. I'm pleased to see the discussion on Star Trek in general is alive and well! Nice to meet you all!

Spock and McCoy. But beyond that...I guess it's in how these people are grouped together in a speculative scenario and how they have to deal with it and bond with each other to work through whatever faces them. Especially those two.
