Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello fellow Trekkers!

My name is Kim and I'm 17 years old, male and resident in Sweden.
Last autumn the channel TV6 aired episodes of Star Trek - TNG. I figured that I should try watching it, as I loved the occassionally aired OS episode when I was younger - So I started watching, and I haven't stopped since.

Recently I've aquired some of the games, seen all of the movies and experienced every episode of TNG and DS9.

Favourite TNG Characters are Data, Worf and Picard.

Favourite TNG Episodes include "Time's Arrow", "Ship In A Bottle", "Darmok", "Elementary, Dear Data" and "Brothers".

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...


My first exposure to Star Trek was in grade school. I remember watching TOS reruns with my parents, not realizing that the series had been canceled long ago.

TOS, DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise were ok, but there's a special place in my heart for TNG. During the last half of TNG's run, I didn't really have much to look forward to but new TNG episodes.

My favorite TNG characters are Picard, Data, and Ro.

My least-favorite are Wesley, Troi, Dr. Crusher, and Pulaski.

I'm not sure what my favorite episodes are, but BOBW ranks up there. I remember accidentally stumbling upon part 2 for the first time sometime in 1990, after midnight, on a 5" black-and-white TV when I should've been in bed, and it rekindled my interest in Star Trek.

However, I hated just about every episode that involved holodeck malfunctions, telepathy (especially those three or four mental-rape episodes), or the "particle of the week". Real drama cannot be created with technobabble and contrived situations.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Well, I guess I'm a TNG fan, but I always liked DS9 better. TNG had its share of good shows, but I was more of a fan of the big story arcs, myself.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

well, i think the main reason i love the show is its coziness factor!! think about it - the brightly lit hallways and workplaces, everyone walking around in their pajamas, the constant and soothing humming of the engine, the stars are always out... i just want to jump in the screen and live there! i loved the entire cast nearly equally, so i'll list my favorite guests: Q, Kern, Damok, the traveller (i heard he has great insurance) and the dude who escaped that prison planet.

STNG was by far the best trek of them all. lots of people outright hate the characters of wesley, beverly and deanna, and, while i agree they are not the best characters, they are so much better then major kira, sisko, dax, neelix, janeway, and kim, all of whom are either entirely devoid of personality or are irritating to the point of destraction. i mean cmon, i got so tired of kira's constant state of agitation that i stopped watching the show for quite a long time. i know a woman like that in real life and let me tell you, she is no fun at all. shes never really worried, or happy, or compassionate, or loving, or funny, or silly, just ANGRY. i also dont like the gloomy lighting used on those shows. so, to sum up, STNG is a timeless classic i will never get tired of!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I watched TOS as a boy lying on my parents bed. Don't know how I actually got started, just one of those things. I watched "Batman" too, but I never got attached -- Star Trek, on the other hand, fell on my head like a boulder.

ST:TNG started just after high school, and I remember being in my family's rec room, watching "Encounter at Farpoint" with my friends and my girlfriend (whom I met due to a "Vulcans never bluff" pin she was wearing on her fluffy pink sweater). Picard and Data are / were the most fascinating characters for me. I liked Riker and his bead, Geordie and his visor. Worf, it took me a long time to warm up to him (I thought he really hit his stride in DS9), and the doctor just never managed to hook me like, say, Bashier and "The Doctor" did. Weasly I could take or leave. I have been rewatching TNG over the last month from the begining, and find the earlier seasons are much better than I remember.

For me, DS9 in the best ST show. I liked all of them, but somehow, DS9 captivated me were TNG merely fascinated me, if you know what I mean.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I may not count to most of you. I'm very big on the Next Gen period starting late in season one, through the first third or so of season four. Even those seasons were only intermittently great, to me. If I liked the idea of being called a "fan", I'd say I was a fan of the first half of Next Gen, not the second.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I grew up on TNG. I love TNG. It's a bit cerebral at times, and the idea that the only thing people do in the future in their free time is research and perform plays is a little questionable. Still, I always enjoy TNG.

And Enterprise. I don't care. I loved most of Enterprise too. I didn't care for the Pegasus crossover at the end though...ruined two episodes in one.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Welcome to all the new folks posting in the TNG forum.

Yeah, TATV isn't much to brag on. When it first aired a few years ago, I didn't care for it much, but I didn't have the immense amount of hatred for it ENT fans did at that time. A month or so ago, I watched the 4th season of ENT again on DVD, and TATV sucked a lot more the 2nd time around. It had some good ideas, but was very poorly written.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

One thing that makes it hard to watch is that they essentially added a filter to Enterprise. By telling the story from the point of view of TNG characters, and then having those characters "fast-forward" through scenes, detracted from the integrity of the Enterprise "universe". The fact is, you are no longer "there" with the Enterprise crew as the events unfold, you are instead what, 200 years in the future? So, the TNG characters know what happens before you do. Add that to the fact that, considering this takes place during The Pegasus, you the viewer already know Riker and Troi's futures, and you have one colossal story-telling mess.

I digress, however. I realize this has probably been discussed to death in the Enterprise forum, and that this is the TNG forum. It's just fresh in my mind, having only recently finished ENT. Thank you for your collective patience.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I differ from a lot of you in only discovering TNG a few years ago. I had always grouped all those science fiction shows in one basket, until I watched a few episodes of TNG late at night, and found myself hugely enjoying them. I have never really found any of the other Star Treks to have quite the same depth, more resembling crappy soap operas, and, of course, none of them have the divinely titillating Commander Worf. Oh that voice...
