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

Hi all, I finally joined the forum yesterday after many years of lurking.

I've been a long time SF and Star Trek fan, starting with TNG when it first aired on the BBC. Collected all the episodes and movies on VHS, and a decade later all the DVD's.
TNG, DS9 and VOY are my favorite shows, but I do like TOS and ENT as well. J.J's films are good, but I'm not sure I like them as Star Trek.

Other shows I like: The Twilight Zone (60's and 80's), X-Files, Babylon 5, BSG, Carnivale and when I'm in the mood for camp; Space 1999 ()
Favorite SF Authors: Asimov, Frank Herbert, John Wyndham, Larry Niven and Frederic Brown. (although everyone should read Bradbury's Martian Chronicles at least once)

Looking forward to some interesting discussions on this forum, where knowing things about Star Trek doesn't mean you're mentally ill.

Welcome up, Isolinear! Another TNG baby, cool!

No, we think your knowledge of Star Trek makes you perfectly normal.

Have fun!

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

I just joined, and I got hooked by an episode in TNG(Can't remember which one). I've watched most of TNG, all of DS9, and some of TOS. I hope to start VOY soon, too

Hello. I'm a fan from the original airing of TOS, with strong opinions in general. But I've tried to enjoy every TREK offered. Nice to be here.

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

Long time lurker, first time member. My main Trek interests lay with the TOS and TMP eras. I also love Classic "Doctor Who", and love drawing crossovers. My medium is MS Paint (XP). So not the best looking stuff.

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

Hi all! New member Cal here, long time Trek fan; more a fan of the tv series than the movies though. Although generally I go to the movies when they come out and watch them with popcorn easily enough, I would love to see a new Star Trek series some day.

Someone elsewhere mentioned TrekBBS had good forums discussing Star Trek and I've been missing that kind of dialogue for awhile, so I thought I would check TrekBBS out and join in while I'm at it.
