    My single warning ever was after a squabble in a thread about nerds. I called out the mod, Lord Garth, on this and challenged him to a duel with pocket protectors. "Let's see whose is bigger!"
    The scoundrel declined the duel and the warning was rescinded instead. Victory!


    Okay, there were some other details I've left out. But those events did happen.

    You don't need to protect a pocket protector. It does the protecting for you!

    Maybe it should be "usernames have been changed to protect those involved." Listen, if someone takes a shot at Lord Garth, I wasn't here, okay?

    Beverly is just in the warp bubble.

    She'll be back later in the episode.


    I would love to be able to buy my computer parts in a local store. It would make returns so much easier. But the prices online are so much better.

    This. Completely and utterly this. I was in my late teens when TNG came out, and back then I never had the inkling to buy any of the action figures and sets, much to my current regret. The only thing I've treated myself to so far is a K'Ehleyr figure, but I'd like to expand the collection.

    Is it the lifesize K'Ehleyr figure?

    Sorry, no. Good thing, as I'm 5'2". We'd never be able to share a wardrobe.

    Good point, indeed.
    I once accidentially initiated a Klingon bar brawl when I growled at a board member in a Quark's bar thread. It took several pages till he finally discovered that he had misinterpreted the nature of the growl: I'm female and he was handsome :lol:

    :lol:

    Am I not a nerd because I have no action figures, toys, collectables, models? :confused: (Though I've secretly desired one of those neon-y lightsabers).

    Or am I a nerd because I own every Star Trek series and film, at least one Trek game and LoTR (the books and the films?) :)

    Well, there are all kinds of nerd.
    You have computer geeks, toy nerds, and old fashioned bookworm collectors like me

    Adam Sessler once said something against the small dragon figurine in a game. He would rather have the game--I'd rather have the dragon fig...

    I have mine in a box on the uppermost book shelf. But I have a map of the galaxy and a map of the moon (front and back) hanging over my desk. Does that count?

    I have my blueprints too!

    And after reading this thread I may have a few more things to acquire... you now, a few presents for myself, it being Christmans, and my birthday, and all... :)

    but is there a real difference between nerds and geeks?

    Hi. :evil:

    My brother saw a good E-Bay deal on the 1/350-scale Enterprise-A that he wanted me to get him for a Christmas present. I told him money is tight, so he got it ordered it himself because he really wanted to have it...

    ... too bad it wasn't the D. His ship would've gone perfectly with your bridge.
