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

I am a recent trek fan thanks to DS9. It helped get through chemo. One of the greatest shows of all time. I even have Dukat on my phone.
My first love is Star Wars and never thought I would like Trek. However, I have come to really like it. It is truly great.

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

Hey my name's Andres, and i'm a huge trek fan. My "trek" is Voyager and a little bit of Deep Space Nine mainly because of the Dominion War. I stumbled upon Star Trek when my father was watching it one day and ever since i've gotten into Star Trek, i've gotten so much into it that i have read the background history to every single race in the star trek universe, i know right? So i joined TrekBBs because it's the first good star trek forum i've been able to find were i can discuss trek with other people.

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

Happy I found this forum! Often when I'm watching Star Trek, I'm wishing I knew someone to discuss it with, and I don't know anyone.

Then I got the idea to google "star trek forum". This was the first result, and here I am!

I have ALL the Star Trek movies and all the TV series (took a while to collect them all, my budget is tight! LOL, but I kept at it until I had them all). I have pre-ordered ST:ID from Amazon and I'm supposed to receive it Sep 10.

I seldom watch TV but I watch stuff from my DVD collection, and I watch at least one episode of ST almost every day.

My username for this forum is Data's Cat, but just call me Spot for short.

Hi Spot - your name makes me laugh and think of Data's poem "Ode To Spot".

All I can say is that I have been a trek fan for over 10 years, I have seen all the movies and episodes that many times that I know all the lines by memory i have only now started to conventions(we don't get many here in Australia).

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

I am CaptainBearclaw. I am 13 years old and a huge Star Trek fan.

I love the original series. Not even for its campiness, it's just really good television. I love the movies, my favorite of course being TWOK. I still haven't watched the spin-offs, but I like what I've seen of TNG.

I collect a lot of Star Trek memorabilia. I'm quite convinced I actually own an original TOS tricorder. I collect comics, toys, Lincoln Enterprises scripts, and pretty much everything else. It's a hobby, and a good way to waste allowance.

Mr Pointy Ears - I've been watching Star Trek since 1996 but never been to a convention.

CaptainBearclaw - welcome to TrekBBS.

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

Enjoying the most recent movies I realized that I had only seen a smattering of the other movies and a few episodes of TNG. Had a desire to watch all Star Trek so I've been working my way through TOS (just finished Friday's Child) and I think I'm hooked!

When I had questions or wanted to know more about shows I would often find myself here. For example, I recently wondered where Uhura was in The Doomsday Machine and came across this thread... which then started me down a fun 30 minute path of other questions and discussions - repeating actors, whether or not TOS is an ensemble show, etc. - and I figured I should join up.

I would be curious if anyone could point me in the direction of a discussion here about the best way to watch all of Stark Trek, something I haven't been able to find on my own. Aside from starting with Where No Man Has Gone Before and skipping The Cage - both suggested in a blog post I came across - I've just been watching TOS in the order Netflix has them laid out.

In any case, thanks! Look forward to participating here.

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

High-schooler. I've watched all TOS and ST:I-VI. Haven't yet started on spin-offs, but like what I see of TNG. I am constantly talking about Star Trek but no one else seems to share my feelings or obsession. So glad I found here! You have all made me feel like I belong somewhere.

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

Hi, new to the forum. I've been a star trek fan since I was about 5 years old, so nearly 30 years now. Love all the trek series with TNG & DS9 being my favorite. Just been re-watching Enterprise, didn't appreciate how good it was first time round!
