Welcome, Colibri, Rhaven and GulGoneCrazy


LOL I think I never got around to properly introduce myself outside of the lounges.

I'm another Niner/TNGer. Besides Trek I like Galactica as well (but I liked the old series better than the new one) and am a big fan of the Highlander Series and Star Wars (the 3 old movies only. The new ones are not quite my cup of tea).

You'll never catch me without a book, particularly very old SciFi like Verne, Heinlein or McVicar. A few months ago I purchased an ebook reader which currently holds some Highlander Fanfiction, Sun Tsu's 'Art of Warfare', Plato's 'Symposion', 'carry on, Jeeves' and a couple of fairy tales.
My taste in music is just as versatile: I like Rainbow and all the spinnoffs (Dio, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath etc.), Rush, the Beatles, music from the 60s, baroque music (particularly Telemann and Purcell), Gilbert&Sullivan operas, renaissance music, Gaelic Folk, Jazz (esp. Fusion) and Blues.

Other than that I do a lot of needlework (embroidery, knitting, sewing, quilting/patchwork and tatting), cook not all that badly and am friends with every single dog in a radius of 5 miles As a general rule I get along better with animals than with humans.
I grow my own lettuce, radishes, tomatoes and herbs in pots and flower boxes and try to convince my eccentric hamster that neither lettuce nor rolled oats are poisonous, while he tries to make it clear to me that the ideal diet for a hamster consists of mealworms, sunflower seeds and mozzarella cheese exclusively.

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

Hi everyone. I've been watching Star Trek since I was a child in the TNG era. TNG remains my favorite of all the series. I'm also one of the few people who seem to like Enterprise, in spite of all its flaws. Right now I'm in the midst of re-watching the entire series, just for the fun of it.

My favorite movies are TWOK and TUC. I hate J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, and I am not afraid to let it be known. I look forward to many spirited (but civil) arguments with some of you over the reasons why.

Thanks!

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

welcome I love civil arguments and loathe the uncivil kind. With the movies, I liked the very first one and Insurrection best. I deeply dislike Kirk and dare to say so openly (though never in the TOS forum - that'd border suicide at best and start a (very un-)civil war at worst )

I love TOS but have never liked Kirk much.

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

yes, same here. When I was a kid and TOS aired for the first time, all of us kids wanted to be Spock, Bones or Scotty, but nobody ever volunteered to be Kirk.
I deeply dislike his thoughtlessness and his never listening to advice. This way he got countless redshirts killed and endangered ship and crew in almost every single episode.
On the other hand, nobody is perfect. I wonder how many illegitimate kids of Riker might populate the Alpha and Beta quadrants...

Greetings. Enjoyed the BBS so far. Some good well mannered discussions take place on these boards. It is refreshing. See you...out there!

Re: stalkin' my peeps - Welcome New Members thread!

hi there
I'm afraid there are a few not-so-well mannered discussions as well, every now and then, but lately there have been blessed few. In my experience it's impossible to completely avoid flames and quarrels on message boards, regardless of whether you moderate with a light hand or heavyhanded (as an old Admin saying goes: if you make it idiot-proof, someone will upgrade the idiot), but a respect for each other and a subconscious sticking to the Prime Directive might both be featuring in the comperatively peaceful discussions here.

Still, I'd consider it suicide to casually mention in the TOS forum that I think Kirk ought to have been fired after his third mission, the very latest.
