Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I'm surprised by how many people there are around my age with similar experiences. I'm 24 and I remember very clearly watching All Good Things on the edge of my seat. When that episode was over I had an empty feeling in my stomach for sure. When the DVDs started coming out (2001ish?) I started buying them and after I'd watched them all I was slightly disappointed to find out that I had in fact already seen all of the episodes either first-run or during weekly reruns.
The TNG crew was my other family and I still visit them once a week or so on my ipod.
Oh, Riker of course is my favorite, and Where Silence Has Lease in S2 is my favorite episode. Great Riker line in that episode too-

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I've enjoyed TNG for many years. Data has always been my most favorite character with Q being my favorite guest star. My favorite episode would have to either be Q Who?, Best of Both Worlds 1 & 2, or Yesterday's Enterprise. I also love all the episodes that allowed the characters to be other characters, like when Picard or Data performs Shakespeare, or when Picard becomes PI Dix, Data becomes Sherlock, etc. I've actually met Brent Spiner and John DeLancie. It was quite an experience.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello All! My name is Debbie and I live in South Florida (but I am from San Diego). I have been a fan of all things Trek since TNG came out. I enjoy the whole cast of TNG... no favorite really. I attended the Las Vegas Convention this year and had a great time meeting the cast that were present. I am flying home in a couple of weeks to check out the Star Trek Exhibit in the Air and Space museum in San Diego and I cant wait for that!
I really enjoy reading all of the TNG books.. esp the relaunch ones taking place after the series ended (which I guess would include the Titan books with Troi and Riker!).

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Im a TNG fan, but im a fan of all Trek as well. TNG got a little too preachy for me at times, but overall it was a good series.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Well, I'm just an all-round Star Trek perv, but it was TNG that got me into the show(s) way back in the early 90s. I've always found early TNG, with its supremely 80s feel, campy, almost TOS atmosphere and sense of galactic danger quite compelling. That said, I think the series just went from strength to strength, with TNG developing into a wonderful example of mature Trek from Season 3 onwards. What else is there to say? The show laid the basis for the subsequent series' and I just love it.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I guess you can say I rediscovered STNG. I grew up watching it with my dad. One of my first memories is sitting on my Dad's shoulder because the theater lobby was too crowded at a Khan screening.

When my disgust for George Lucas became too much to ignore, I began re watching STNG in order. I feel in love with it, and it captured my imagination again. So that brought me here.

I won't argue what is better between each incarnation of Star Trek. The only complaint is they killed off K'Ehleyr. You can have Crusher, Troi or Yar but I'll take K'Ehleyr.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I still wish local syndicated stations had the right to TNG reruns because they were such a stape of late 90s television around my parts. You could watch TOS and TNG on the same Fox station on the same night, sometimes back to back depending on the time of year.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

WOW, Quite a turnout this thread has generated, love it. I am 48, which means I was around to see TOS in it's first run, I was pretty young way back then, however it did manage to captivate my imagination, what made it really cool is that just a couple later we actually did land on the moon.

I had to wait 18 years for TNG to make it's debut, I thought it may be just like TOS however it was anything but TOS. I really liked the bald Capt, The Klingon Tacticle officer, (I thought they still looked like the Tribbles Klingons) The guy with the weird Visors, The blonde security officer, The hot Telepath, The Redhead Doc and her annoying kid, and finally the gold skinned android names Data.

Much bigger ship, that could seperate the saucer section from the nacell rear section. Bigger, Better, Faster, Cooler with much better FX. Needless to say I was hooked from the start...LLAP

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi all! *waves* I am a Star Trek Newbie, only been watching since last summer. My husband was a huge Trekkie growing up, he watched TNG growing up so that's his all time favorite series. I started in on what I deemed the "Trek Project" last summer and so far I have watched Enterprise, TOS, the first 8 movies, all of TNG and the first season of DS9. Up next on the plate is movies 9 & 10 and season two of DS9. I hope to finish DS9 and Voyager before movie #11 comes out in May.

So far TNG is a tie for favorite series along with ENT. But out all of the characters that I have been exposed to so far I enjoy Data the most. I think Brent Spiner is a phenomenal actor and I would love to meet him someday (and hopefully do more than be a gushing fangirl).

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

HI everyone!

My name is Lucy, I'm a 29 year old Aussie girl, grew up watching TNG, and fell in love with Ds9 and Voyager when they came out... Voyager and TNG are both my favourites, but I mostly just post in the Voy forums here. I just rediscovered ST recently after a long hiatus, and have just watched VOY from beginning to end, hence why I've been hiding in the VOY forums!

I just bought the whole TNG series off the net and am eagerly awaiting them so I can watch the whole series from top to bottom, it will have been decades since I have seen much of it (I grew up wanting to be Deanna... then Dax... then Seven...LOL). I look forward to posting in here when I get my series in the mail!

Smiles,
Lucy

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I have recently started to get into Star trek, but instead of just reading about it and catching the odd re-run on TV i have decided to buy all 7 seasons of TNG, DS9 and Voyager. As i write this im currently half way through S4 of TNG and im loving every second of it. Picard, Worf, Data and Riker are all equally my favourite characters. Im currently at the University of Huddersfield studying a BA in music production. Patrick Stewart is the chancellor of my university and i think this has had some strange impact on my decision to go and buy all these DVD's =]
