I'm a Big Star Trek Fan Except...

1. I have not actually seen all of Voyager. I did not see most of the episode with Dwayne Johnson and the last shuttlecraft crash episode with Chakotay and Seven.

Long story short, my local Fox affiliate dropped the show when an actual UPN station opened in my market. It was an antenna-only station and like most everyone, we didn't have an antenna. So I did not see the last three seasons when they were new. I had to wait for the show to go into syndication before I could see them and those were the ones I missed. Otherwise, it was really cool, getting five new Voyager episodes a week for a couple months.

2. I have never seen the animated series.

3. While I watched a lot of TOS when I was a child (mid-1980's), I'm now starting to wonder if I missed any episodes. I'm reading Federation right now and it's making me think I may have never seen the episode Metamorphosis.

4. I have never dressed up in a costume. I just find it silly.

5. I don't own a single season of any of the shows. I'm sorry, but no matter how much I loved any of the shows, I refuse to pay what they're still asking for a DVD box set. Even if the price has gone down a bit over time. I only ever got B5 on DVD when B&N held its 50% off sale.

How about you?

Re: I'm a Big Star Trek Fan Except...

1. I'm practically brand new, only weeks old as a Trekker.
2. I've never dressed up.
3. I've got zero ST merchandise.
4. I am not at all familiar with DS9, and I barely know Voyager [Janeway and Q, cough cough] and I barely know Enterprise [only Dr. Arik Soong].
5. I've only watched so few TNG episodes. [And I mean, out of all 7 seasons.]
6. I'm barely acquainted with non-TOS or TNG actors
7. I certainly HAVEN'T grown up with Trek.
8. I've only watched 2/10 Star Trek movies [NEMESIS NEVER HAPPENED.]

Re: I'm a Big Star Trek Fan Except...

Ha, that Voyager episode with the Rock (and Jeff Combs and J.G. Hertzler too!) is the best episode of the whole show, probably. It's goofy and entertaining in the finest TOS tradition.

I've never dressed up. Heck, I've never dressed up as anything except the Golden Age Flash (Flash T-shirt plus blue jeans = Golden Age Flash. ) But besides being silly, which could be fun, it's also expensive.

Re: I'm a Big Star Trek Fan Except...

Lets see...
I have not seen all the movies, only a bit of Voyager, even less of TOS and even less than less of Enterprise.
I do own all the Movies though (yes also the ones I haven´t seen)... but I didn´t buy the DVDs myself. A friend wanted to get himself a new set of DVD (BlueRay) and wanted to get rid of the old ones... I was the one who got them.
I do have all DS9 seasons here (besides Nr.1), but they do not belong to me, but my cousin. My room-mate owns the whole of TNG, so I borrow that now and then, but don´t own it myself either.
I have never dressed up as a Star Trek character, though if I had the skill to make myself a Cardassian uniform and good looking Make-up... I think I would...for the right occasion, not in everday life of course. (I did dress up in LOTR style once, when we had a LOTR meeting with dance in an old ball-room inside a spooky castle..that was fun.).
I have no merchandise, however I once inherented from an uncle the gold bracelett of his dead wife. He said I can do whatever I want with it. (It was a very ugly thing, but well... gold.) I was 16 or so, and very much into DS9 ... the bracelett became a little cardassian symbol, one can put on top of the shirt (though much smaller then what the Legates have). *L* I still own it, but I am not quite sure where it is...somewhere in the cellar I suppose. I have to look, next time I move.

Re: I'm a Big Star Trek Fan Except...

I've never dressed up (unless you count wearing a TNG uniform top that was designed as a t-shirt to school when I was about nine).

I've never taken the time to learn one of the languages.

I've never been to a Star Trek-exclusive convention (but I would love to sometime).

I've never written a Star Trek fan fiction (although some of the characters from various series cropped up in other stories).

I've never watched the entire run of Voyager (and probably never will).

I've never slept with anyone who has ever appeared on an episode of any Star Trek series.

Re: I'm a Big Star Trek Fan Except...

1. I didn't discover Star Trek until I was 42.
2. I have never dressed up in a Star Trek costume.
3. I was bored after a couple hours at the one convention I've attended.
4. I haven't seen all of DS9 or Enterprise yet. First disk of Ent Season 3 should be arriving today.
5. I have seen little of Voyager and even less (one episode, I think) of TAS.
6. I have no plans to buy more than the limited Star Trek items I already own: the complete set of TNG DVD's, an autographed photo of Sir Patrick Stewart, and an Enterprise-D ornament that will be going on the tree later today.

Oh yeah... and a UFP flag that used to hang in my office. I haven't figured out what to do w/ it at home.

Re: I'm a Big Star Trek Fan Except...

Started watching TNG when it was originally on.
Now I have all of the episodes from every series.
I have some merch but don't care too much about that stuff.
I went to the Vegas convention this past year and it was the best thing I've ever done in my life.
No costumes yet but I really want one for the convention next year.

I even converted a girlfriend into a raging trek fan.

Except...

I've barely seen DS9, but not for the lack of trying.

I've only seen a small part of TOS, but it is my favorite series.


But...

I love building models of the ships.

I made a toast in Klingon to my fiance shortly before I proposed.

Oh, she loves Star Trek just as much as I do.

Re: I'm a Big Star Trek Fan Except...

I discovered Star Trek when I was 10 in late 1970. I'm a Big Star Trek Fan, except...

- I've seen all of TOS and TAS (several times) and all of TNG. I've seen about half of DS9, about a fifth of VOY (yuch!) and about a quarter of ENT (blah!)
- I have all of TOS and TAS on DVD. I plan on getting the first three seasons of TNG.
- I have no real interest in DS9, and less in VOY and ENT.
- I've seen all the films either in the theatre or on video or television. I own only TMP DE and TWOK DE on DVD. TSFS-TUC are kinda okay, but I don't care for any of the rest of GEN-ST09.
- I've been to several conventions over the years, but (regrettably) I've never gotten around to wearing a costume.
- I've written fan fiction.
- I've read quite a few Trek novels, but have given up on it for the most part easily about ten years ago.
- I enjoy the technical and scientific aspects of the Trek shows and films I do like. I have a few technical reference books. And as such I also enjoy drawing and designing Trek based hardware.
- I often enjoy talking about Star Trek and things related, hence why I'm on the TrekBBS, Hobbytalk and Byrne Robotics forums.

. . . I've never written an ENTERPRISE novel. (That's the one corner of the franchise I never got in on.)

Re: I'm a Big Star Trek Fan Except...

1. I don't see the point in arguing canon/continuity. I don't give a crap about my "childhood being raped". None of it is real and I think people forget that.

2. I haven't seen every episode 100,000 times. I actually don't think I've seen 50-75 episodes of all the series.

I am not a fan of TOS, TNG is where it all started for me.
I hated the endings for Generations and Nemesis.
The Ferenghi were the worst race to ever grace this show.

-I haven't seen every episode of the animated series. I do own it, though, as well as all the five live action shows and eleven movies. Must get around to watching all of TAS one day
