Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

Welcome spacemonkey and Randy1012! We do have a lot of fun over here on the ENT board. Just jump right in and make yourselves at home.

spacemonkey, there are quite a few of us here who think Scott Bakula is pretty droolworthy (even some of us that don't like Archer all that much still LOVE Scott!)

And Randy, as a former Boston resident may I just say WOO HOO to your choice in sports teams! I'm a big Sox fan myself. Just don't let Ligeia find out. She roots for the evil Yankees ... hisssssss.....

And to quote my old post from the previous board:


I'm TJinLOCA, which means TJ in LO, California. In real life I'm a champion skydiver, an international supermodel, and I raise award-winning purebred ferrets.

Oh, all right, I'm a 44-year-old mother of three, retired software engineer and technical writer, a lifetime ST fan (I used to publish fanzines and run conventions, back in the days of yore) and I've got the hots for Connor Trinneer so bad that it's starting to interfere with real life.
Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

Just saying the show is growing on me, Liked Scott Bakula in quantum leap (when i was so small - i still think of "oh boy" when i see him!), thought he'd make a good trek captain when i first heard.
Scott Bakula is very hot. And I never watched Quantum Leap when it was first on, so it wasn't until ENT that I was first exposed to his hotness. Once ENT finished its run last May I started catching up on old QL episodes to get my fix.

Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

Welcome to the new posters!

I posted long, long ago in the old thread, but I'll reintroduce myself anyway.

My name is Char, I'm 23 and I live in Dublin, Ireland. I've just finished college after five years (BSc and then an Msc in Statisics - I still can't believe I got through it!) and have just entered the big bad world of employment.

I enjoyed Enterprise's four year run tremendously. My favourite characters are T'Pol, Archer and Phlox, and my favourite episode is season three's Twilight.

Besides Enterprise, other obsessions of mine include The X Files, Smallville, Neighbours (Aussie soap - it's brilliant!) and, very recently, Harry Potter of all things (never thought I'd see the day when I'd say that). On the music side I'm very into Hanson (MMMBop) and grant everyone free mocking rights on that one. I even mock myself sometimes. It is Hanson after all.

I was a long-time lurker at the TrekBBS before I plucked up the courage to register (let alone post), so any other lurkers please feel free to join in!



One more thing: I believe in Severus Snape.

Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

A few weeks ago I read a fan fiction piece that managed to bond Harry and Snape and make them friends instead of enemies. At first I was put off by it, but it was so well-written...

I've now been sucked a new 'ship. Not romance, mind you, but stories where Snape ends up being Harry's substitute father figure/friend/mentor. I'm completely disgusted with myself, but I can't help it. I love it. Most of the writers set the stories pre-HBP, I think because they're scared of trying to fix THAT ending. I'm still looking for someone with enough guts to attempt it.

So yeah. Go Snape.

Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

I almost hesitate to take this completely OT, but as you can tell I'm also a Potter fan with my own favorite ship that only lives in the realm of fanfiction. When I first heard of these stories pairing Hermione with Snape, I was like, "Ew." Now I can't get enough of them. Heck, I even wrote one.

Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

I don't ship at all for anyone in Harry Potter (so refreshing after Enterprise), but I have read some Snape/Hermione fics. I am tempted to write a Snape romance (I previously went for the other popular subject of choice when it comes to Snape fics - long lost child ) because the idea of Snape in love is somewhat fascinating.

I've even found myself reluctantly conceding to the "Snape loved Lily" theory, although I'm horrified on poor Harry's behalf!

I'm also setting a very bad example by chattering on like this, so I'll stop now.

Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

You mean us oldies get to introduce ourselves again? Sweet!

I'm somebody, (I have to get to know you better before I share my name) and I'm a 29 year old mom of 4. As to my profession, I'm a mommy. I am an aspiring writer and a crummy cartoonist, though. (Yeah, I'm not gonna show you so don't ask. )

I got into ENT when a friend told me that it was getting good in the third season. I started at "Countdown" but I don't think I became an avid fan until "Home".

My favorite characters should be obvious from both my avatar and signature--and if that's changed sometime: it's Soval and Trip, but I thought the show had a decent cast all in all. And I [whisper]even like Archer--a lot![/whisper]

I have sinced watched the entire first and third seasons and am working my way through the second. It's a good show. And I'm sad it got cancelled!

Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

Okay, if we're doing the intro thing again for the older posters too...

My name is Katie (hard to guess with a handle like Jedikatie, right? ). I'm 34 for two more days, then I turn 35 on Thursday. And eight days after that my dad turns 70. And the day after that my youngest niece is 2. And four days after that is my brother's 34th birthday. Can you tell November is the birthday month in my family?

I have 3 nieces, one (frequently annoying, smart-aleck) brother, and an almost 14 year old Pekingnese/spaniel mix dog. I have a bachelor's degree in Classics (which was easier than aerospace engineering, my original major, and didn't require calculus ), and have wanted to be an astronaut since I got my first telescope when I was about 8 or 9 years old.

I've watched Star Trek since I was a little kid. I also love Alien Nation, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Farscape, Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time books, Ghostbusters, Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series, and Colleen McCullough's First Man in Rome series, among many others.

Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

I guess I classify as an older poster now...weird.

Right, my handle is Rigil for reasons too unnecessarily complicated to go into here. I'm a 33 year old ex-infantryman who was in Desert Storm. Been a sci-fi and fantasy geek forever. Until ENT, I had dropped out of Trek almost entirely because I didn't like TNG-era stuff. Liked a lot of the characters on ENT in season 1, quit watching in season 2 (like, unfortunately, too many people) but came back in season 3.

Aspiring writer who has never written fanfic before...now I've got two actual stories under my belt and I'm working on the third. :thumbsup:

Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

Well, I guess I'll throw my weight around here too!

I'm 37 years old. Got hooked on Star Trek when I was a wee lad in the 70s and they aired some original series episodes in my country. My nick reflects that. I was already a huge space and sci-fi geek so Trek was just up my alley. Spock was the favourite character and I have had a fascination for Vulcans ever since, and as I got older I seemed to appreciate the pointy-eared gals as much (T'Pring, Saavik) and now I'm hopelessy devoted to the Vulcan goddess T'Pol!

I got pretty tired of the über-perfect TNG era in Trek but I watched what I could of that show and of VOY. When ENT came along it was a breath of fresh air. I love the prequel setting. Although season 2 was less than inspired I stuck around. For one I learned online that things were going to improve in season 3 and, well, if I could stomach 7 years of VOY then I should survive one measly season worth of ENT. Besides, I wanted my T'Pol fix.

Never in a million years would I have considered myself a "shipper" by any stretch so imagine my surprise when Trip and T'Pol sucked me right in. Now I cannot imagine ENT without them! :thumbsup:

I guess i should introduce myself properly

Hello, my real name is err... no i wont give that! anyway im 24 years old. Currently single (heh - should i have said?) I go to university in Scarborough (part of Hull uni). I study the Environmental sciences. Im getting into the marine sciences a bit (not just marine biology) because we share the first year with marine biologists. This is the only other forum i post on and id love to work out if anyone else in bbs posts on that other *snigger*.

Im getting into Enterprise as i said. Favorite characters? not watched enough to determine but i do like Archer (one man and his dog), T'pol seems to be cool, Trip... oh heck i like 'em all! Big Trek fan since i was small. but not a proper Trekkie though id love to go to a conference one day, not to meet the stars (im shy!) but to see what its like.

Anyway... before i start babbling incoherantly like i always do (even in real life).. i better stop.
