    I joined a few days ago thanks to Yeoman Randi who sent me a link!

    I love TOS and watch the episodes obsessively -- usually while working on projects around the house.

    I have sketched out almost all of the women's costumes from TOS and have started to recreate them for Barbie dolls (yes, I'm a geek and proud of it!).

    Yeoman Randi has a couple of pictures in her album. I don't think I am advanced enough in rank to have an album yet, but when I do, I'll put in pictures of the costumes I have made.

    In the meantime, I am slowly working my way around the board, posting here and there and still trying to figure it all out! It makes much more sense than it did a couple of days ago so perhaps at some point I will start a thread.

    Plus I need to watch more of the other series and movies!

    Hi everyone! I just joined. I've been a big fan of Star Trek, TNG especially. Started watching during season 2 if I remember correctly and was immediately hooked! Looking forward to being a part of this group and chatting with other Trek fans.. hopefully make some friends too. :)

    Greets! I'm SSgt Baloo, and I've been a Trek fan since they were still making new episodes. I'm not quite a stereotypical Trekkie, but I have owned a large amount of Franz Joseph designs merchandise and similar items.

    My hobbies are drawing vehicles of various and sundry sorts, including, but not limited to Starships [click HERE and HERE to see examples]. It may be heresy on this board, but I like Star Wars, too, but I'm mostly interested in the fascinating variety of vehicles in the movies.

    I also like Role-playing games, even though I haven't played in almost 20 years. My favorite genres are Superheroics and Science Fiction.

    Right now one of my projects is a rewrite of a fan booklet on how to do Star Trek with the Hero Games system. I'm also writing a Wold-Newton-inspired timeline for a superhero campaign and revising the Superheroes in WW II supplement I wrote when the official Hero Games one kept getting postponed. (The first version I wrote in 1990, but I actually got to use it before I moved to where there were no gamers.

    Evening SSgt Baloo, that second link you gave has some excellent Airframe schematics. Were/are you a Crab?
    Impressive bit of artwork there anyway.

    Hello to the rest of the forum, I just found this place a couple of days back after watching STXI and googled "Is that cop in Star Trek a robot?". Got linked here, read a few threads and enlisted.

    I like DS9, I drink red wine in a tankard and my favourite quote is "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

    (Might not be from Star Trek)

    I'm new too. I joined trying to make friends who have the same obsession as I. (My sister's word not mine.) I got into Star Trek after the 2009 film. My favorite is the original series. (I think maybe the Enterprise haven't seen to many epis yet.)

    Hi everyone!! I've been a fan of Star Trek pretty much my whole life and I don't know why I have never joined some forums before! I'm in school, studying CompSci and English. I love mostly TNG and DS9, but I've watched all of them. I think I used to read parodies of Enterprise on this site back when ENT was still on the air. Anyway, lookin' forward to talking with all yall!
