Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hey, I'm WitchbSword, Witch for short. I don't want to give my real name because I'm paranoid and I also don't like it. lol!

Anyway, I'm a new Star Trek fan and I've just started getting into all the series by watching a few random episodes from each one. The only one I haven't seen yet is Deep Space 9. Is that any good? TNG seems to be better than Voyager and Enterprise, but all three so far have been pretty cool.

Anyway, this forum seemed very friendly, so I thought I'd sign up, say hello, and learn more about Star Trek!

P.S.- This is probably in the FAQs or something and I'm not that great at forums, but can someone help? I would like to have an avatar, but when I go to "Edit Avatar" it won't let me "unclick" the option for "Do not use an Avatar". do i have to be at a certain level or use something special?

You need 50 posts (and a certain time of membership) to be able to upload an avatar. There should be a text above the forum listing which explains that. But don't worry, 50 posts go by pretty fast.

Lol! thanks.

yeah, i've always been a scifi fan in general, but never watched ST. But it's all over pop culture and parodied everywhere, so I thought I'd give it a try. I caught a few episode of Voyager on Spike TV and I've enjoyed ST since then! My friends and family laugh, but they're used to my quirkiness by now.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

TNG is classic and though some of the styles and effects on the show are wearing a bit thin due to time, the stories are still relevant and I enjoy watching TNG even now 20 years later.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello, everyone. Dawn here from Minnesota. I'm old enough to have watched the original series on network tv. (Although I didn't discover Trek until the 70s.) Been a TNG fan since 'Farpoint'. My favorite character is Picard, with Q second.

I really miss TNG on tv. But thank god for Trek books and fan fiction, of which I am an avid reader.

I definitely do NOT like CBS's attitude towards any Trek that's not the new movie. The 40th anniversary of Trek and the 20th anniversary of TNG could have been better celebrated.

But, anyway, it's nice to find a place to chat about TNG.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi all!

I'm 29 years old I personally think that the TNG has good visions for the future!

Captain Picard is definitely one really good actor! He's good! Although I personally think that Mr Data is the most interesting character. He's authentic interest for intaking high volumes of information from databases is intriguing, also at which speed he is able to do this.

I spend a lot of time on the net and I often find very interesting material. I personally share Mr Datas view on the interest for new knowledge and new information.

I have seen many episodes from the TNG and I watched it for the first time several years ago when it was on television here in Sweden.

I think this is a good forum and I hope to get some more insight into what people think about Star Trek, because I honestly don't know enough about this. I know that Star Trek is a big phenomenom and that millions of Americans have been watching Star Trek with a very big interest.

I myself is definitely a Star Trek fan and I also think that the way they have done things for example in the quarters, that it should be able to influence how we are living today. Of course, everything isn't possible with todays technology but the technology is going forward all the time and I often get inspired about things. I can take an example: To be able to click on a button so that the computer screen goes down in the desk is very futuristic and this is one of those things which IS possible with our present technology. So many things about Star Trek is very interesting and to get inspired makes me feel better, actually. Holographic screens is also interesting and this is under development in the real world, so I guess they might have borrowed some visions from Star Trek, perhaps? :-)

Hi everyone. TNG is my favorite Trek, but I don't spend enough time in here. I think I will try to fix that from now on. I'm definitely a big time Patrick Stewart/Picard fan. The man can ACT! I also enjoy Spiner as Data, and chuckle everytime Jonathan Frakes does that trademark Riker Swagger walk, with his head tilted.

So in the immortal words of Q, "If you're very lucky, I might even drop by to say...hello...from time to time. See you...out there!"
TNG is my favorite Trek as well. I'm a 47 guy from Warner Robins, Georgia and have been fan of all TREK since September 8, 1966.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I'm Cali and have been on TrekBBS for nearly six years. I got into Trek through Voyager, then started watching TNG and fell in love with it. I'm nearly 21 so was only two months old when TNG first started.

I am a P/C and Riker/Troi 'shipper, and don't like season two because of Pulaski. Beverly Crusher is probably my favourite character and I love the appearances by Q. I have seasons 1, 3, 4 and 6 on DVD.

TNG is my 2nd favorite series, behind Voyager. Especially the Borg.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I don't know why I've never posted here before...

I remember the first time I saw TNG. As a kid and fan of TOS, I waited eagerly in anticipation of that first episode. I remember that spectacular scene with the Enterprise and Picard. The size of the ship was hard to comprehend at my age at the time. I loved how they used the familiar theme music, and kept the uniform colours from TOS that the movies strayed from. It seemed so much larger then life.

And I remember the very last episode and it felt like that was a perfect way to end it. I actually didn't want any movies with these characters. I wanted to remain content knowing that they were continuing to explore new worlds and new civilizations- Boldly going were no one has gone before- together.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello!

I'm 20 years old and I'm from Croatia.

My first Star Trek series was Voyager, you could say I grew up with Voyager and I still like it very much.
Few years ago I have seen for the first time all the rest of ST on television. I started with TOS and I liked it very much. But after that I have watched TNG and I really loved it from the beginning. Even more then Voyager. TNG really made me a Star Trek fan. I watched almost every episode, I loved all the characters, especially Data. (I have a crush on him every time I watch TNG again. *blush*) I'm rewatching TNG these days on television again.
I have watched DS9 and ENT too, but they were pretty different and a big disappointment after TNG, especially DS9. I never liked it nor really cared for the characters. And the war didn't really fit in the ST world for me.
Of the films, my favourites are First Contact and The Voyage Home, in that order.

That's my ST history. I could write it more in details if I were better in English. I understand all your posts, I even watch films and series in English without subtitles, but writing and speaking English is much more heavier than understanding it for me. So, I'm sorry for my English...

My entry is probably out of date, so here goes! I'm a fan of STNG and ST in general. I've been married 4 years with a stepdaughter and live in NJ, USA. I'll be 38 in June. I'm an account manager for a large corporation and I just passed my certification test for personal training. I also owned my own business for a time. I have a two year diploma for commercial art training though I rarely dabble with artwork anymore. I have done some Photoshop design work for advertisements. I enjoy science fiction, computers, technology, history, sports, and hiking/walking and bodybuilding. More info and silliness is available on the mostly outdated myspace page here:
