Hi everybody. I used to post when it was PsiPhi.org. I haent seen any names that I remember yet. I remember that some of the writers like Christopher Bennett and Margaret Something used to post. Is it still run by David Henderson, or is this completely different now. By the way I really am pretty old.
The other writer you're after is Margaret Wander Bonano. But TrekBBS is not and has never been part of PsiPhi.org - we've always been part of TrekNation, owned since 1999 by Christian Hohne Sparborth, as it says at the bottom of every page:

Behave! There are ladies present!

Gillian, I believe this is the site you were looking for (you mentioned that you were searching for Trek Original Series' books) : http://www.psiphi.org

But even if this isn't the board you were expecting, give us a chance and hang out with us We're a nice bunch - well, most of us are - and this board can be a fun place to hang out with other Trekkies.
Still, the name Gillian does sound very familiar. I think we did indeed once have a member of that name. Around 2001/2 if I am not mistaken.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I tried the psiphi.org site and it didnt seem to be still operating. I googled David Henderson and ended up here.

On other social networking sites, I have Deanna Troi as my avatar, although I always keep my real name.

It couldn't have been anything but Jim! I said give me a hard one, and boy did you give me a hard one.

The double entendre was intentional, although I'm not sure why.

Ah I see. A misunderstaning then.

The psiphi.org site works for me but apparently hasn't been updated in years.

Re: Any old timers still around?

That site was round a bout way to here. I recall it had an early link to Jammer's reviews and that lead me to here in 99.

So long ago...

Re: Any old timers still around?

I didn't join up until about two years into the run of the BBS and I don't recall hearing about psiphi at the time. If I did I've long since forgotten about it.

Re: Any old timers still around?

same here. I had had a look at the board in 2000 but being a pacifist disliked the military ranks and decided to not join. I registered in 2001 by request from Che Guevara who by that time was still a quite nice teenager and a rather well-liked member of Keith Cobb's [Tyr Anasazi in "Andromeda"] personal message board. He (Che, not Keith) turned nuts only about a year later - might have something to do with legal drinking age...

Tim Lynch's DS9 reviews led me to Delta Blues & Jammer's reviews which led me here. Took me until 2001 (Voyager's impending departure) to join.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I stumbled here completely by accident. I was Googling (Lycosing?) something completely innocuous and irrelevant and it took me here. I wish I could remember what it was I was looking for.

Probably porn.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I think I used a Hotbot search to find this place (remember Hotbot? Its creators probably don't, neither) when I was looking for news pages, chat rooms and message boards related to Trek. Before I found the Trek BBS I was an infrequent visitor to a couple of sci-fi/fantasy chat rooms and would occasionally post comments at a couple of other sites.

And less than one year here to join TerranBBS

Btw, you're missed over there


Have any of you been members at aSciFi.com? Man, that was a huuuuuge board! Easily 25 times the size of TrekBBS. I used to hang out in their Trek, Andromeda and ancient SciFi sections.
