Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

G'Day All

I've just joined your happy little band of fans. I look forward to being part of this Forum.

My name is Ian, I'm an Aussie (Australian) and just cossed into middle age. I am a Naval Historian and author, and I've been a lifetime Star Trek Fan.

I thought TNG was some of the best Trek out there. The Inner Light, I will admit, still brings a tear to my eye. Yesterdays Enterprise, the Best of Both Worlds, Face of the Enemy and Chains of Command are some of the best sci fi put out, while if you had to end a series, All good things...was the best such episode to end a series run (Those that watched Blake's 7 know what I mean.)

There used to be large Star Trek clubs here in Perth, where I live, but they all got shut down in 1996 by the Authorities due to the clubs broadcasting episodes (yes they did, but we were at least five years behind the US in Trek, it was the only way we'd get to see them before the turn of the century) I used to write fan fiction for the club magazines, some of which might find its way onto this Forum (in the right place of course)

So to end this post...
I love the Romulans, but am cool with Klingons.
I love the Galaxy class starships, hate the Soveriegn class, looks ugly.
And I think Worf is still 'not a merry man!'

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello everyone! I am a nurse (LPN) and have two children, and I've been a Star Trek fan for many years now.

In TNG, I've always related more to Deanna Troi than any other characters. I am very much like her personality-wise (but unfortunately I don't share her appearance. ). Over the years I have come to believe her character was rather poorly utilized in the show, so I can no longer say she is a favorite.

It's hard to pick a favorite TNG character because part of what made that show work so much is the strong chemistry between them all. One didn't really shine over another, the entire cast work well together. They are all excellent actors as well, as we see from the holodeck episodes where they take on different characters.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hiya. I don't really have much to say, as it would sound like most people's here. I like TNG. Have for a good while, and while I'm not as die-hard a trekker as I used to be, and have branched out into other shows, Trek (particularly TNG) will hold a special place in my heart. I'll see you all around. *waves*

I'm sure I must have posted in this thread at some point over the past. Anyway, I've just been reading through the most recent introductions, and I'd just like to say that there have been so many new members lately that have been contributing to the TNG forum and the board in general and I've enjoyed meeting you all.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I've been a huge TNG fan since the beginning. I was young at the time, but my dad watched religiously so I became a fan by default. I still watch several episodes regularly, it's easily one of my favorite shows of all time.

I got tired of DS9 pretty early, but I've recently been giving it another shot, starting with season 4.

I couldn't stand Janeway or Chakotay, but I loved the idea behind Voyager and I thoroughly enjoyed several episodes.

So anyways, I'm SomniumRabidum and I hope to be here for a long time. This is my first Star Trek forum, and judging by what I've read over the past few weeks I know FAR LESS about the Star Trek universe than most of you. I hope to learn more by frequenting this forum and I look forward to contributing where I can.

Oh, and just in case I have any fellow enthusiasts around here, I'm a diehard Steelers fan and a MMA fanatic.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello. I've just joined this forum. TNG was the first Star Trek I got into and I also love Voyager.

TNG got better and better I think, I love the final series with episodes such as phantasms best - I think the writing was fantastic, real suspense, and by then the characters had had a chance to develop. Voyager on the other hand had huge potential, to be honest it's probably my favourite, but I feel a bit let down by the way the most of the characters seemed to stagnate a bit and later episodes aren't as good - it didn't help that I'm not fond of Seven. I wasn't as keen on DS9 as the whole 'stuck on a space station' thing didn't interest me as much, but I think it was well written and got better as it went on. I loved Sisko and was a huge fan of the Kira/Odo relationship.

My favourite TNG Characters - hmmmmm. Definitely Picard, he's great. Not so sure about either of the women, the Doc was a bit soppy I thought and I really didn't like the Counsellor at all. Data is fab, a mixture of humourous with serious debate about what makes a person a person, iyswim, loved him to bits. Worf was good and I liked him even better when he got to DS9. Geordi was well developed you could watch him growing up in a way - I loved seeing him a captain in an episode of Voyager.

I'm not really all that keen on the stuff set after the series, I read Before Dishonour because of the Janeway thing but I prefer leaving the crew of the Enterprise from the tv series together in my head. Similarly the first three films were ok but as for killing Data in Nemesis ... don't get me started! he'd only just begun to embrace his humanity. Pah

Now all I need is more hours in a week and I'll have time to try Enterprise and TOS
