Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi, I'm a newbie to the forums as well (this is my first post!!). My favorite is TNG, and Voyager. I loved the way that they took the time to explore and develop the characters over the seasons without trying to pack too much backstory into each episode. I wasn't in to TOS, but I loved the movies.

My favorite TNG episodes, even though it might seem a little obvious, were "The Best of Both Worlds."

I would prefer to hide away and bury my head in a book (holodeck not invented yet!) rather than be with people. I grew out of that but I still have a big tendency to annoy people and screw up. I also think he desreved more credit than he got and was judged too harshly by people. He never actually screwed up that badly but still got mistrusted all the time. Would like to see more discussion of him, but alot of people seem to dislike him and I guess he was only in 5 episodes much to my disappointment
Dwight Shultz showed up in -

TNG 'Hollow Pursuits' (introductory episode)

And he got name-dropped in TNG 'A Fistful of Datas'. :thumbsup:
Don't forget Barclay showed up in First Contact (movie, not the episode) for a somewhat brief appearance with Zefram Cochrane and LaForge!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi, I just found this site two days ago and I am so happy to find other TNG fans. I grew up watching the original Star Trek movies and loved TNG series all through high school. I missed most of the last season, because life had me busy, but since then I think I have watched all of the episodes. I'm starting now (better late then never)to watch DS9 on Spike and I like it as well. For the past year, I've been a stay at home mom and have enjoyed watching the reruns on Spike TV and G4. Now even my twins are hooked and know the TNG theme song and no matter what they are doing, they crawl over and are mesmerized by the TV during the opening credits. If I had to list my favorite episodes it would take a while. I have to admit I understand and enjoy the show more now then in high school. My favorite characters are Picard and Data, they are wonderfully written and portrayed. I've always had a soft spot for Riker and Troi as well.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Good Day Everyone, My name is Kayla.

I am a very resent Trek Fan and I have to say it is my fav Addiction. My father and Mother were always Very big fans of TNG and they named my two childhood cats Captin Jean-Luc Picard and Q, sadly they have both past but none the less. Recently in school we have been watching some of the origanl Star Treks in comparison to some of the books that we are reading, my father and I have also started watching Star Trek 2.0 on G4. This was the begining of my obsession. I have been know to create a new Obsession every month and this month it is Star Trek and I could not be happier.

Anway, I am most entrested in TNG and my fav. Charictor would by far be, Dr. Beverly Crusher, AND, Captian Jean-Luc Picard, Who is what pulled me in in the first place.

I am very excited to have met you all and found a place to talk about my new obsession. Hope to meet many of you. and I Leave This Pic

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Well, I'm pretty clearly the oldest one on this thread. :-)

I grew up on TOS but enjoyed later series as well. I once wrote a fangirl song for Jean-Luc Picard which was included in TV Guide’s Collector’s Edition: FAREWELL TO STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION in 1994. My music group, Urban Tapestry, performs the songs at science fiction and filk conventions and it’s on our most recent CD.

Here’s an MP3 sample of us performing the song in concert. The audience laughter is mainly because I'm doing goofy things with props. :-)

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I don't think you're the oldest, Inkygirl.
In my 20s I loved TOS so much that when the Next Generation started, I refused to watch it. I couldn't believe that it could possibly compare with TOS.
My son kept telling me it was good, but I thought "Without Spock, McCoy and Kirk? What?"
Then the Generations film came out, and,of course, the characters from both TOS and TNG were in that film, and this sparked my interest in TNG.
So, the next time TNG was rerun in the UK I watched it all from the beginning.
By the time of the end of the first season's reruns I had fallen in love with TNG (Even despite the devastating demise of my darling Tasha,) and, I think that in the end I came to love it more than the original series, and that's saying something.
I like Voyager, too, but I couldn't get into DS9. Somehow, the characters didn't seem to be so interesting.
TNG is being rerun right now in England, and I'm loving it again.
I've never read any Trek fiction but I'd be interested in what's available with TNG characters.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello, I'm Kira and I am a 23 year old freelance graphic designer from Seattle. I just recently started getting into Trek, and so far out of everything I've watched ( DS9, ENT, and TNG ) TNG is by far my favorite. In regards to characters my vfavorite ones are of course Jean Luc and Data, and my least favorite ones would have to be Miles O'Brien and his nagging sappy wife whom I cannot stand.

Out of favorite episodes there are a few but most memorable are ( sorry I don't memorize the names ) the one where everyone aboard the Enterprise catches a virus from another Starfleet starship and gets very horny. This is the episode where Piccard corners Beverley Crusher and starts hitting on her. ANother funny one I love is where he turns to Wesley as he's giving him some advice and with the most serious face on the planet says "Shut Up Wesley !" hahaha love that.

Ages ago SFX did a poll of the worst things to happen to sci-fi. I believe that Bonnie Langford and Keiko O'Brien topped the poll!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I'm 31 years old, studying computer science. I've always been a science-fiction fan but I haven't been that huge Star Trek fan. I've watched the Star Wars movies more times than I can count and I've seen every episode and every movie of the Babylon 5 series which I enjoyed very much. Up until this summer I had only watched Star Trek on the TV, and since it's hard to coordinate your life so that you can see every episode when it's on TV, I had only seen I'd say about 10% of all TNG episodes, 5% of all TOS episodes, 3% of all VOY episodes and maybe 2% of all DS9 episodes.

But at the end of the summer I decided I needed to see all Star Trek episodes, except for TOS (which I don't particularly enjoy). So I acquired all ST:TNG episodes and I've been watching it from the beginning. Now I'm on season 6 episode 20 (The Chase) and I estimate I will have finished TNG episodes within two or three weeks. Then I'll watch TNG movies and after that I'll figure out which season I should see next -- DS9 or VOY.

So I'm pretty much a newbie. But I do love Star Trek and TNG is my favorite series. My favorite episodes, so far, I think are:

The Best of Both Worlds (I and II)
The Inner Light
Data's Day

I'm also trying to find out who plays ensign helmethead which is something I'm discussing in a thread parallel to this one.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello All! I'm new here, the name is Brittaney, I'm 17 and I'm from Michigan.
I discovered TNG this summer while working in Illinois and not having anything to do all day but sit around and watch TV. I watch it most nights and I have yet to see a full TOS or DS9 episode. I haven't even seen even part of an episode of the other series. I thought it funny that most people that I encounter while reading fanfiction started off reading ST and then moved on to other things, and I'm the exact opposite. I mainly ship P/C and R/T though there are a few others that I enjoy somewhat. As for my favourite episode, I really don't know. I'd have to say my top three are : The Naked Now, The Inner Light, and Attatched. I like all the main characters but I'd say that Picard or Riker or Data is my favourite. I love Q too. Thanks for listening I guess. (Hope I didn't frighten you people away)...

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi, another all new guy here. I'm Hugo from Belgium (I live about 20 kilometers east of Brussels), I'm 43 and ST fan since, oh I don't know anymore. I guess I was about 7 or 8 years old when I saw my first episode. And I loved it. When TNG came on the Dutch speaking tv in Holland, I was completely hooked. I watch as many episodes as I can, I don't care if it is TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT, movies, ... At this time there are replays on BBC2 of TOS an TNG every saturday. I try to see them all.
Furthermore I enjoy a good Sci-Fi book (Isaac Asimov, Jack Vance, ...) on the train from/to work (I almost never read at home).

My favorite characters are Picard, Beverly Crusher and the EMH. I quite like Malcolm Reed and Hoshi Sato too. I don't think I have a favorite episode of any of the series. The ones I like most though are those with time travel issues.
