Weldome to the BBS! Don't let the negative propaganda against ENT spoil the opportunity. I watched it from the beginning and really enjoyed it. The stories are interesting and the characters are compelling.

BTW, your written English is excellent. Is it a course you studied in school?

Absolutely right.

ENT wasn't perfect, but it's been consistenly underrated from the day it first premiered almost...wow...eleven years ago. A solid show with a lot of good and even great episodes as well as one of the most memorable and worthwhile story arcs in Trek history.

And welcome, Louigi and Use of Time. Great to have the both of you on the boards. Hope the two of you have lots of fun around here.

Thanks! My spoken English is also not bad they tell me

I lived in New York USA for 4 years when I was a kid. Since then I use English every day.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Long-time BBS member (2001) and TNG is where it all started for me. The TNG-R project has brought me back to the boards after many years away, and it's amazing reliving the entire series again as never seen before.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I had to take a look at my profile to see how long I've been on this board. Turns out I've been a member since March 2002. More than 10 years! I was 19 when I joined the board, and 30 now! Oh my!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi, I'm new.
TNG was my first Star Trek series and is kind of special to me because I had to watch it illictly. I wasn't allowed to watch any TV as a kid. One day my mum went to the post office and my bro and me turned on the TV and there was this incredibly sexy, bald man stepping out of the turbolift...... Well, meanwhile it's turned out that my personality is quite similar to Picard's and I've gotten over the inappropriate daddy crush Anyway, my brother and me kept watching Star Trek secretly whenever my mum did the shopping and eventually we persuaded her to watch it with us.

I like most of the characters (including Wesley!). While Picard and Data would have to be my favourites, what I enjoy most is the interaction between the different characters. I'm currently re-watching TNG (for the 5th time?), so the jury is still out on my favourite episodes.

Same here. I was 29 when I joined the BBS and I'll be 41 in less than two months!

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello, GuinansDaughter here. I'm 27 and a freelance writer from southern California. When I was a kid my father would watch TNG every week...I hated it because it usually interrupted some cartoon I wanted to see. But now that I'm older I've blossomed into a sci fi/fantasy nerd with a very deep appreciation for TNG and all its amazing storytelling. I watched every single episode on Netflix and became enthralled. It's when I started listening to the Enterprise D ambient engine noise on youtube that I realized I needed to seek others out like me. So here I am.

I can't say enough about captain Picard...I have so much respect for him that I wish he were real just so I could wait on him hand and foot. Data is so funny and insightful when it comes to the human condition. Worf has a special place in my heart as he constantly battled with his identity as both klingon and a federation officer. I've also struggled with my own identity as an African American, since I don't act "typical" (whatever that is). People have often thought me strange for not conforming, but I've always just been myself. I think we've all struggled with identity at one point and Worf embodies that struggle.

And of course Guinan, she is the wise mommy I wish I could have. I've always been intuitive and a bit matronly just like her. She has a beautiful spirit that I can relate to.

I could go on and on but I guess that is enough for now. I'm very glad to be here.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hello... New to this board although LONG time lurker... I'm 34 and I started watching TNG when it first aired on BBC2 in the UK and i was hooked which is surprising considering how dire most of season 1 is!!! That said i can still happily watch even the worst episodes. I love TNG, it will alway be one of my favourite series of all time. That said, i also love DS9 and will happily watch Voy and Ent too...

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

After starting to rewatch TNG Season 1 I have to say I really like it as well. I don't think I can choose a favourite series anymore!
