Oh, I don't mind that at all. I love to talk about them, as many around here will attest to.

DD is 7, and DS is 2 1/2.

Only if you begged SubTv to at least give us a choice of disliking Ent or not. I did, they ignored me.

So that's three of us in Finland, you, me and I noticed a guy named Timo somewhere around here. With a name like that, you know he's Finnish.

I think when you're in Finland and a trekkie, you tend to appreciate it more because it's so rarely on tv.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

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!"

I'm still pestering them for TNG S3 and forward. Or was before I was forced into boycotting them for Big Brother.

Aye.
Oh you mean you haven't subscribed to the Big Brother channel?

Subtv was the reason we got the dvd's. They left off at the end of season 2 and it was like... and??

So everyone else take note, we are seriously deprived in Finland!

I'm cooleddie74. You all know me by now. If you don't, ask the fine folks in the Movies and ENT forums.

And if THAT doesn't scare you away, then rest assured in the fact that---while I don't get as much of a kick out of TNG as I used to(DS9 has since surpassed it in my eyes and I'm also an enormous ENT fan)---I still thoroughly enjoy the series and watch it whenever I can. The 1701-D still rawks. :thumbsup:

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hi everyone. I go by the name Kestra (or Kes) online, and TNG is my favorite Trek series. I'm more interested in Trek literature and fan fiction than ship designs or some of the other aspects, but I do like looking around at everything.

When I'm not online I'm a 22 year old English major trying to figure out something important to do with the rest of my life. I think that's all you need to know for now.

There are people that don't know you on this board, cooleddie?? Nah.

As for me, I started watching TNG when I was about 12 years old or so--I was instantly hooked. I loved the way it looked--the sleek design of the ship, the lighting, everything. I wanted to live on the 1701-D!

I had trekkie friends in high school and we had a good time together--I wouldn't have made it through without those guys. One of the reasons I like TNG so much is because it reminds me of good people and some very fun times. I guess it's psychological!

My favorite character is Data, my favorite episode has always been Data's Day. I wasn't in contact with any other trekkies over the internet until last year when I signed on here to try to find out what the heck was going on with Enterprise. Because of this, a lot of the popular opinions on TNG issues are things I never even thought about before. I thought Wesley was okay, I liked Lwaxana and Q, I enjoyed Imaginary Friend, I never 'shipped for any of the characters...I don't know no better!

And finally, in real life I teach anthropology. I blame TNG entirely for getting me interested in how other cultures operate. Seriously, I was always interested in archaeology, but TNG was my introduction into many of the anthropological principles I would later come across. :thumbsup:

Ooh, okay. I'm 26 and a nursing student in California and I've been a TNGer since the tender age of 8. My dad was (still is) a huge geek and he raised me in the grand geek tradition, making sure I got to comic conventions and was sitting there with him the night Encounter at Farpoint premiered.

I'm a Bev-head. Less now than I was at 13 and 14, when I was quite the obsessive over her as well as a P/Cer (although I never attained the mastery of either subject as High Priestess Naraht has!). I have calmed down over the years, but Bev is still my classic fave.

My favorite episodes are Cause & Effect and Timescape. I hate Seasons 1 and 2... I'd almost rather watch ENT! Other episodes I love are Frame of Mind, Power Play, and Remember Me.

I have to say, I probably technically prefer DS9 to TNG, and TNG is tied with VOY as my second fave. But TNG will always have a special place in my heart. I grew up with it!

You know, since it's Halloween today I figure it's an ideal time to post a pic of me dressed up as Bev on Halloween sixteen, yes, sixteen years ago. It was S3. I was so overjoyed to have Our Lady of Sickbay back on the show I had to celebrate.


This is the closest pic of me I have to STNG's premiere that's handy. I was 15 here, not 17. I never wore a uniform though.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I have an off/on interest in TNG. Essentially I prefer stuff from the first three to four seasons, but I have little to no interest in seasons five, six and seven. And I care nothing for the TNG films. TNG is one of those things where I feel the producers were so close to getting where I'd hoped the series would go yet rarely did it get there. That said in retrospect it comes across much better than the Trek that followed over the years.

Star Trek was at its best in TOS and some of TNG and only a scant few episodes of early DS9. The rest is drivel.

TNG I've liked:
Where No One Has Gone Before
11001001
Conspiracy
Where Silence Has Lease
Elementary, Dear Data
The Schizoid Man
A Matter Of Honor
The Measure Of A Man
Contagion
Q Who?
Up The Long Ladder
The Emissary
Yesterday's Enterprise
The Offspring
Sins Of The Father
Captain's Holiday
Sarek
The Best Of Both Worlds


Those aforementioned are my preferred episodes while there are others from the first four seasons I feel are okay and watchable. Measure Of A MAn and Q Who? Are my favourite TNG episodes that I rank up with my cherished best of TOS.

Oh, and this is me.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I’m a big fan of TNG, but it took some getting used to in the shows early days. I started out hating TNG and then ended up loving it. I own all seven seasons on DVD and enjoy the majority of all the seasons except for the first one. There were some good shows in season one, but they were few and far between for me. My favorite episodes are listed below. Of course, this list may change from time to time. Old age, ya know.

The Measure of a Man
Yesterday’s Enterprise
The Offspring
Clues
First Contact
Best of Both Worlds
Family
Darmok
Ensign Ro
The Inner Light
Rascals
Relics
Tapestry
Masks
Lower Decks
All Good Things

Here I am at work about a month or so ago.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I am the Sho-Rin, master of the Mutai and clearly a big fan of Babylon 5. TNG is second, though, followed closely by DS9 and ENT. I refused to watch TNG at first due to the derivative title but was talked into watching an ep by a trusted friend. It turned out to be "Measure of a Man" and I was instantly hooked. There are too many favorites to list.

I guess I'm about the only guy around older than Spider1. I'll turn 60 next May. IRL, I'm Technical Training Manager for a major maker of electronic security products. Born in Louisville, KY with stints in Lexington, KY, Atlanta, GA, Pleasanton, CA and now live in Orange, CA. I travel about 150,000 miles each year on average. I'm a car buff, unfunded audiophile and occasional pilot (900 hours). The Lady Sho-Rin and I are very active in our church.

If you ever meet me IRL, call me Bill. Mutai is a virtual character only.
