    This is actually the third time I've joined this forum. Been years since I last posted.

    Star Trek and classical music are my main interests.

    Channel open - Hi everyone
    My name is Toby and I am a Trekker.
    I've seen all the episodes dozens of times, all the films many times over, read all the autobiographies, scores of novels and attended Generations One and Two at the Royal Albert Hall in years gone by.

    Highlight was Patrick Stewart's standing ovation that lasted about 20 minutes!

    I am looking forward to looking around here.

    Firstly id like to say that I thouroughly enjoyed this site when I first encountered it a few years back. I recently created a blog name here so I could partake in the discussions. Recently however I have encountered a group of individuals that have been beyond rude to me. I thought that people that like trek would have been above that kind of mean spiritedness, but I guess not. It was a small group of individuals but enough to make me not want to use this site for quite some time again. Thanks to all those whom made me feel welcome on this website. Happy trekking.

    Hi there. New here. Found ya on google

    My name's Kirby. I've been into Trek for the better part of 15 years. TNG, DS9 are my faves and I'm heavily into roleplaying. Running my own star base now and thought I'd finally get onto a trek forum and commune with some like mideds :)

    Hey all. Just joined. Never posted on forums before but couldn't resist chatting about star trek :) Currently working my way through every star trek book ever written. Much easier now I have a kindle. Some of the older paper backs were a struggle to find or way too expensive, but haven't had any trouble finding everytihing in ebook format (even if some of them had to come off the darknet ;). Birthday is in a couple of weeks and I've got my fingers crossed for the Movie boxset on blu-ray :) Cheers. James.

    Hey Kirsten. The DS9 relaunch books have been epic :) would definitely start there before the other relaunch books. But they are all good.
