I love that Klingon music so much.. I think of it as the Klingon Calvary theme.

Born in 1971, I can't remember a time when I wasn't a Star Trek fan.

Re: What was your frist star trek experience

My first Trek experience was watching TNG on Sunday evenings, in the early 90s. I remember being mesmerized from the beginning.

Re: What was your frist star trek experience

I was at a sleepover with a friend of mine back in eight grade and he just had to watch the DS9 season finale "The Adversary." I had no choice but to watch with him but I found that I enjoyed it. As a result, I spent the summer watching reruns of TNG and was instantly hooked.

Re: What was your frist star trek experience

I was about 5, it was during the final season of TOS.

I don't know what show my folks were watching but I distinctly remember walking into the living room from my bedroom when I heard the theme song start and getting a rush when I heard Shatner's "Space..the Final Frontier..."

Then my dad got up and quickly flipped the channel and said "I'm not watching that space s*^t!!!"

It wasn't until TAS came on Saturday mornings that I got re-introduced and then I was hooked. I searched out the late night re-runs and the rest is history!

I'm also old. Not quite as old as Greg, but almost. I grew up with TOS in syndication during the 70s. I don't remember my first exposure to Trek because it's always been a part of my life (thanks, Dad).

It was my dad who introduced me to Trek, too. It was a big deal if he let me stay up past my bedtime to watch STAR TREK . . . ..

Re: What was your frist star trek experience

One of my earliest memories of Star Trek is of me as a five/six/seven year old sitting on the floor of the living room and asking my dad if the woman on screen was Whoopi Goldberg. I remember he was quite surprised that I knew who she was XD My earliest memory of the original series is of The City On The Edge of Forever. Somebody asks about Spock's ears and Kirk makes the joke about getting his head stuck in a rice-picker. I remember turning around and asking my dad why they didn't just say that he was an alien.

I am also one of the older ones here. I cannot honestly remember which episode I first watched, but 'Arena' is certainly the one that hooked me.

Re: What was your frist star trek experience

Though I must certainly have seen and been aware of Star Trek beforehand the first thing that always comes to mind is a kids TV show that promoted the amazing new Star Trek series from America with a clip from The Naked Now (to tie in with the rental videos? Just because Trek was popular in general?) of the big rock destroying the science vessel. It WAS AWESOME.

Re: What was your frist star trek experience

My first experience actually wasn't television Trek or movie Trek. One of my earliest memories as a child was reading one of the old Star Trek comic annuals. Man I used to love that book! Sadly, at some point, either I, or more likely my mother, threw it out.

My mom and aunt took my Gramps to TVH for his birthday. They let me tag along.

I was five and so excited to get to go see a movie. And, yeah, it was awesome.

Re: What was your frist star trek experience

I think I had been exposed to some TOS repeats before TWoK came out in theatres. But it wasn't until TNG arrived that I was hooked.

Re: What was your frist star trek experience

I saw Star Trek in syndication sometime in the mid-70's. This kid I went to school with named Trevor was really into it. He always brought stuff from the show for show and tell.

Re: What was your frist star trek experience

My earliest memory is sometime in the early 70s, watching a Trek rerun of Devil in the Dark. I just remember these guys running around cave, shooting at a big blob.
