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

Hello all!!
Newbie here perhaps but I remember watching TOS LIVE back in the day. With Netflix, I have caught up on all of the series except for DS9. I find that I am partial to VOY and Enterprise along with TOS obviously. Well, for now that is me. Take it easy on an old guy!

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

Hello everyone. I joined the Trek BBS a few weeks ago but I haven't properly introduced myself here.

The first Star Trek I can remember seeing was the moment in "Tomorrow is Yesterday" when the Enterprise accidentally transports that other 20th century military officer aboard. I saw this moment while I was at someone else's home about a decade ago. At the time I was confused as to whether the Enterprise crew were time travelers or aliens who had accidentally teleported someone. At various points after that I saw the Star Trek films on DVD at my local libraries, but I didn't know what to think of them since I was already a Star Wars fan. Then while my family was in a hotel on our way back from Florida I saw "Storm Front" and "Storm Front, Part II" on SyFy. I loved it instantly. Soon afterwards I read about the Star Trek franchise on Wikipedia, watched more Star Trek: Enterprise episodes on the official Star Trek website, checked out some of the movies on DVD, and began reading Memory Alpha all the time, etc. Now here I am at last on a Star Trek forum discussing my favorite science fiction franchise with fellow fans.

I like Star Trek: The Next Generation the best out of the Star Trek television series, and I love the modern Pocket Books novels. My favorite non-human species is the Vulcans, my favorite characters are either Spock, Sulu, Picard, Data, or Worf, and my favorite ship is either the Enterprise-D or the Enterprise-E.

Ello everyone! I'm new here. I was introduced to Star Trek via a book called Star Trek Enterprise Last Full Measure. I still have it and still enjoy reading it. The fist episode of star trek I saw was Q Who. Movie wise was the Undiscovered Country. How is everyone? Does anyone like plants?

Orchids are really pretty. I love Lavender Roses and Lilies. What's your favorite part of this forum?

Yeah. And the black ones (which technically aren't really black) are also quite rare. The fan art section...I draw ship multi-views, in MS Paint (XP)... http://captshade.deviantart.com/

There are some fine artists, and ship designers, on trekbbs.com. I wish I had half their talent.

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

Hello there! My name is Speck and I'm a Trekoholic.
I'm currently on a mission to watch all the TV shows and movies in original release order. Just got started with TOS.
After I'm done, I reckon I'll be hooked for life. I have seen a lot of this franchise over the years and know quite a few things about it, but now, it's time to get serious

Good to have you with us, SD1. I very much agree with you about New Voyages/Phase II. They are an awesome bunch.
