Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Finally, how can you talk about TNG with out talking about Picard, IMO the best role model in all of trek. The character represents the height of integrity and morality in my view, while at the same time, hes never perfect, and has made many mistakes in life (its nice to see someone who is capable of becoming a great person, whilst having a slightly checkered past). 'Picard speeches' are TNG at its best. No other trek show (or practivally any other tv show in general) can quite reach that level imo.

I definitely agree with this...Picard is by far my favorite on TNG and probably my favorite in all of Star Trek. His character is so deep, intriguing, and there always seems to be more than meets the eye with him. The fact that he is such an honorable man and seeks to live for truth causes me to like him even more. Though he's not perfect, Picard is such a good example and representation for how mankind and the Federation should strive to be.

My name is James & I'm a Star Trek fan, the only one in my family, guess a few of you know how that goes!
I gotta tell you when TNG first aired I didn't like it but somewhere along the way that changed, I can't say when but TNG became one of my favorite Trek shows.
TOS is still the best but TNG is right there with it!

Holodeck doorway and arch constructed from 9600 spools of thread

My solo exhibition opening March 20, 2008 in NYC includes a fully functioning Holodeck constructed from 9,600 spools of thread. Fully functioning you ask? Well.... on a conceptual level it is. The perspective of the installation places viewers inside the Holodeck so the gallery becomes a fully functioning Holodeck simulation program.
Images and more info about the exhibition:

Re: Holodeck doorway and arch constructed from 9600 spools of thread

Hi everyone.

This seemed the best place to say hello.

Some of you will know me from the Misc forum, which I've modded for a while now. I'm going to be moderating in here as well from now.

TNG's my favourite series and I'm really looking forward to discussing it a bit more again. I used to post in this forum a fair bit years ago but kind of drifted away for the last few years. But TNG remains the only Trek forum I kept on my Favourite Forums list on the old UBBThreads software and on my Subscribed Forums list here on vBulletin. I still read it regularly.

TNG's a great series with some truly wonderful characters and some of the best episodes in the entire Star Trek canon.

Hope you don't mind me joining the forum; I'm really looking forward to it!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Huge TNG & DS9 fan here! TNG will always be special to me because it’s what got me hooked to Star Trek and interested in sci-fi in general. DS9 was even more amazing than TNG coz it took Star Trek to a whole new level. Terrorism, politics & war were never really explored in great detail in TNG and that’s what made DS9 so good.

I’ve seen the first five seasons of Voyager but that was at least 5 years ago so I really don’t remember all that much. But I thoroughly enjoyed Voyager & plan on watching it again eventually. As for Enterprise after the first few episodes I lost interest. I haven’t ruled out the possibility of giving it another go at some point in the future.

TOS believe it or not I’ve never seen! However it’s at the very top of my must-see list of shows.

Oh btw I’m not a new member, have been with Trekbbs for almost a year, just thought I’d introduced myself briefly as a fan!

Thx,
Maniarek.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi there, My name is Bridgette and really I've only been a Star Trek fan for about 2 years. My ex got me interested and now I am hooked. I have only watched seasons 2, 4, 5 and 6 of TNG and a few episodes here and there. I love everything about TNG, it was really the first I saw of Star Trek. I have since watched seasons 1 through 6 of Voyager and catch Enterprise every Monday night.
I must say that I am glad to be here, I have been to other sites and to make a long story short...I decided to leave them behind and by luck I found this place. I am looking forward to getting to know more people and talk about S.T.

Welcome Bridgette. Always good to hear coming of a new fan. However, you should repost this as the start of a new thread, rather than having it buried here. You will get a lot more replies that way and a much warmer welcome.

Maybe the mods would do the good ensign a favor in this case??

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi everyone!

I'm new here, just signed up today. Big fan of TOS back in the day of early re-runs and a bigger fan of TNG!

Picard, as others have said, to me epitomizes what Trek is about. He is certainly my favorite character in the philosophic sense. Great role model.

When it comes to comedy, I think Data and Worf are just priceless. I have never been a big Klingon fan, finding them (as did GR) basically "un-Trek", at least originally. Fortunately, Worf was handled in a way to rectify this and I love that!

Starting watching TOS in 1974, hence my handle. Was reading the Blish adaptations at the same time and it was heaven. One of the old covers can still evoke some of that special feeling.

But TNG surpassed TOS, in my opinion, in the all-important philosophical area.

Question for the forum: Haven't gotten into Voyager much. Given what I have said above, do you think I would like it? It is not possible to rent it here (Yokohama) so I would like some heads up about it before I buy.

Thank you all. Glad to be here. Good therapy for my Trek-addiction! ;-)
