    Hi all,

    Been a fan since around 1991 (when I was 11) and have been a fan since , though it has waxed and waned over the years. I am now set a goal, to watch every star trek ever made. Watched almost all of DS9, a lot of TNG, and not much else except for the movies. Still confused on how to make a avatar on this board.

    I've also decided to watch all of my Trek end-to-end and gapfill the series I don't have: TOS Remastered, The Animated Series, Voyager and Enterprise. I'm still not getting Star Trek V or the TNG films, and I'll likely skip all but the last couple of TNG S1 episodes but it should be fun.

    UserCP>Edit Avatar>Choose File. Pick a picture you like (or make one), save it to your documents, and then upload it following the above pathway. :)

    I don't view the avatars myself; animated gifs make me queasy.

    Indeed, though if you have not seen them, The Battle, Where no man has gone before, and the Big goodbye are worth watching from the first half of TNG S1.

    I can go as far as UserCP>Edit Avatar but it has no option to choose file. Aha, I have not been a member for two weeks, so no avatar for me (yet) :rommie:

    I have seen them, that's why I don't want to watch them again. Honestly I'm impressed TNG survived with a first season that bad!

    Hi! I'm brand new here. Just a Trek fan, mostly TNG and beyond. I'm presently living in an 18-wheeler with my Papa while our family recovers from a financially disastrous 2010. To me it's a shuttlecraft, lol. This site looks like lots of fun and I'm looking forward to making some new friends here. But it may be several days between visits since I'm on the road alot and have to find wifi. -Robin

    You have made Ensign as of today, so rank will come to you.
    Hi, Dancer, welcome aboard! Things have been tough lately, but I wish you fortune and happiness!:techman:

    Should I take that to mean I shouldn't be here?
