Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi, I'm brand new here. I LOVE Star Trek TNG and have since its original airing. I have all seven seasons on DVD and watch at least an episode a day. I love all the major characters except season 2 disaster Dr. Pulaski. I've 'transferred' from another Star Trek website because I couldn't stand the spammers ruining things for everyone else. You all seem like a nice bunch of people. I hope there's room for me on this board!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I am a Trekkie because of TNG. Altho I enjoyed Enterprise and DS9... TNG will always be special to me.

I should add that I'd follow Picard anywhere
As would I. Picard fits my ideals of a good leader and I could easily follow him. Which is odd, when I think about it, because I have a streak of problems with authority. But this streak never really pops up with good, fair leaders. Only with bad ones.

Good thing I was only in ROTC for six months.
When I became tech support manager for my old job, I realized one day that I was using Captain Picards command style. To this day it was run most efficently during my two years running it. My people would do anything I asked and in return they got respect and recognition.

A few years after that I heard there is actually a book out about Picards command style. Never looked for it though.
I've read it twice cover-to-cover.


It actually helped me out on the job, because I worked in an office at an aerospace company.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello! I'm BRG. I've just arrived here.

I love all Star Trek series, but TNG is by a mile my fav, always has been, and probably always will be.
I've recently bought all 7 season on DVD, and I have fell in love with the show again like I first did all those years ago.

Fav characters- Picard, Data & Worf.

Fav episodes- 3 from each season.
Season 1- Datalore, The Battle, Where No One Has Gone Before.
Season 2- Q Who, The Emissary, The Measure of a Man.
Season 3- Yesterday's Enterprise, Best of Both Worlds, Hollow Persuits.
Season 4- Best of Both Worlds pt2, Reunion, First Contact.
Season 5- Darmok, The Inner Light, Power Play.
Season 6- Tapestry, Starship Mine, Face of the Enemy.
Season 7- All Good Things, Parallels, Lower Decks.

And although I've never been a huge fan of Trek films, I think First Contact is by far the best of the 10 films, an excellent film.

We don't tend to have much pinned in this forum, so I think that we can get away with having one of these introductory threads. If you're a regular poster or visitor here, or a recently arrived newbie, then take a moment to post in here, and give us a few words telling us which characters/actors and aspects of TNG are your favourites to discuss.

I will start us off ... I like to think of myself as fairly flexible in my TNG viewing, but have come to have a slight preference for the more character driven stories in recent years. I also like finding good qualities in some of the more often critisised episodes ("Justice", "Shades Of Gray", "Sub Rosa" etc ...).

While I consider Picard and Data to be the best written characters, Riker is nonetheless my favourite, with Q my favourite guest star.

I like to amuse myself by disturbing people with Picard/Q pictures like this one.

Anyone else?
Ok...

I'll try!

So, there I was (like everyone else) there had been only one -there could be only one- for years -decades- and all of a sudden there was another one
It took me a while to get used to the fact that effects had not gotten better with the twenty year wait, and that the interiors of the Ent already being a decade behind -in the very first episode -BEIGE! what were they thinking?
And while Star Trek didn't have any -but the most obnoxious- kids around, TNG did have kids on the ship -I'll never understand why! -worst Trek EVAH!- and they (he) turned out to be the most obnoxious character(s) on Trek ever! -THAT part of TNG baffled me! -does so to this day!
As usual I had to watch this emanation of Trek in the German dubbed version, H8 that; so, he's supposed to be French, and speaks the best English in all of Trek history -fine! -Morte than that: BLOODY BRILLIANT actually, but why, oh why? would anyone want him to do that in German???????????

I remember Picard being the charachter that allowed me to -sucessfully- turn my sister into a (½-way) trekkie (language is important, and while Kirk had only his ripped shirt, Picard had INTELLECT working for him) AND show my nephew that (cy)Borgs were a more dangerous enemy than any ol' 'empire' could ever become. and that 'lightsabers' vere merely a new way to show old-fashioned 'knights-and-swords'-stories in a SciFi setting...

Anyway...
TNG was the first show to be presented to the Danish tv-viewer (years later and after a hurried re-hash of TOS) -mostly because of massive input/demand/pressure from the official Danish fan-club (trekkies.dk)) but was shown on a small(-ish) channel and on a baaad time of week...
I suceeded in my greatest acomplishment ever; VHS(!)'ing every episode! -Hadda have a friend do it for me and then record his recording onto my tapes during the next couple of days (four eps every weekend! -I brought my machine (on the back of my bike) to meet his once a week, and had to solder the SCART-input on my machine somewhere in the meantime due to that kind of video-signal system not being designed to unplug-plug-unplug-plug-unplug-plug a lot of times (grrr).

Where was I? Sub Rosa??? that's one of my favorite eps! - what is the problem you guys see with that

That picture... I used the sentiment in that in the 'what if' thread... as in; you're in great trouble if you wake up next to a Q

I guess I'll have to read the rest of this thread now... sorry if that'll make me think of other things to say, but, damn it, live with it!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hey everybody, I'm Rob, otherwise known as Spidey323. I was 13 when ST:TNG first aired wayyyy back in 1987, and my first memory of ST:TNG was seeing a picture of the Enterprise-D in the newspapers I was delivering. The show hadn't aired yet, and looking at the new Enterprise had me worried that the show wouldn't even be close to the original, but I thought I'd at least give it a try. I had my VCR ready to go when the the first episode was aired, and I'm glad I did! I spent the next 7 years watching and taping every single episode. I only missed three episodes throughout the entire run, and I still have all the VCR tapes packed away in a box in my basement, much to my wife's dismay. I enjoyed the show from the start, and I figure that I pretty much grew up with the show since I was 13 when it started, and almost 20 when it ended. I learned a lot of lessons from ST:TNG. My favourite character was Data, but I really enjoyed the entire cast, even Wesley. I have too many favourite episodes to list, but one that sticks out in my mind is "The Offspring" where Data creates Lal, his android daughter. I happened to catch a few parts of that episode on Youtube a couple of weeks ago, and the part where Data says goodbye to Lal had me in tears. I remembered that episode being sad, but I wasn't prepared for the impact it would have on me when I watched it again, now that I'm all grown up with a child of my own! I still watch ST:TNG whenever I get the chance, usually on Spike TV, and I've been thinking of pulling out and dusting off my old VHS tapes and watching them again.
Anyways, I think I'll be visiting this board more often now, since I'm having a great time recalling all my Star Trek memories!
