Oh yeah, they were classic examples of 80's spandex gone wild..and I heard they actually nearly crippled a few people to boot!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

For the most part, I think TNG's middle seasons were some of the best eps in the entire franchise (second half of two through about the end of five). After that, my head starts to hurt from the liberal use of treknobabble and "magic-particle of the month" solutions to everything. Some of my favorite episodes were most straight forward and didn't get too fancy with the premise. Like Contagion (computer viruses, teleportation, other goodness) and the concept of the Picard Manuever was IMO the most ingenious and most often ignored piece of trek ever produced.

Then you turn around and hear Geordi say something like "If we modify the deflector grid to emit a fancynamium pulse, we might be able to seal that quantum hyperbole that's been causing all the Klingons to turn blue." I can sort of see this for a science mission, but it gets a little absurd in combat situations where the preferred tactic of EVERY starship commander (from the Defiant to Voyager and everything in between) is for the Chief Engineer to modify some piece of equipment to emit a high frequency problemsolvedium beam?

Nobody EVER repeated the Picard Manuever... not even Picard! And that was one of the craftiest things I'd ever seen on Star Trek.

I like DS9 on its own merits because it's well written, but it has some flaws TNG escpaed. I absolutely loathe Voyager, and I kick people who express even the slightest praise for it.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Well lets see my name is lisa and i grew up watching TNG with my dad and now that i am almost 21 i am haveing alot of fun rewatching them all again lol. My favorite episodes are the ones with the borg in them and especially the ones with data and lore. My favorite characters are Data because he is super smart and good at everything basically and Worf because he makes me laugh. If i had to pick one favorite ship it'd have to be the borg cubes because they look so slow but go so fast. BTW anyone know where i can buy the old TNG episodes on DVD without a credit card?

I might be the only one who enjoys Ens. Crusher. Always wondered why he was never in any films, except for a small part in STX.

No, you're not, I liked him too!!! A big welcome to you and everyone else. Enjoy your stay!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello, my name is Sean and I've been a fan of TNG since the beginning, way back when it first premiered in '87. I've always loved this show, it's the one that got me into the whole Star Trek universe so it's always had a special place with me. My top three episodes are Family, The Defector and The Offspring. My favorite character is Picard followed closely by Beverly. I guess you could say I'm a P/Cer. Beverly became more of a favorite over the last few years from rewatching episodes. I find their relationship interesting and fun. I liked the friendship aspect of it and wouldn't have minded if they got together but it doesn't bother me too much that they didn't. One of my other favorite aspects of their relationship is the fact that she is one of the few characters from the main cast that would stand up to him. I've always liked those scenes along with their dinner and breakfast's conversations. Some of my other favorite shows are The X-Files, Firefly and Freaks & Geeks.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Well I totally love TNG. It's a toss-up between TNG and DS9 for my all-time favorite Trek. Maybe it's just the fact that they were made around the same time in my life, my youth. Now that I'm older and more cynical it's harder to get excited about the future and the final frontier. Anyways, my fave charater on TNG has to be Picard. I have a special affinity to him cuz I too have a British accent (and receding hairline:'( )
Plus he's really really really smart.
Plus they played up his lonely-at-the-top situation. I can relate to that.

I'm Jon. I'm 33 and I registered today.

I'm a writer and I've worked for Art Asylum part time through the years. One of my proudest moments is writing the copy for the new TNG figures. If you have Riker or Worf, you've read my work. :thumbsup:

I love TNG, TOS and DS9. I'm watching Enterprise through Netflix since I missed most of the run. It's ok, I like it more than Voyager.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

My name is Califf and I am a high school student. I watch Star Trek every night for atleast three hours. I really dont mind what the eposide contains but I really like the episodes where they use the holo deck because I love seeing the virtual reality aspect.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Ok, I've never posted in a forum. I'm April and am 25. I am IN LOVE with TNG, obsessed with P/C, and infatuated with this forum. Please be my friend.
I've started watching TNG again and for some sick reason, nothing else matters now.
