    I didn't have the best start in this community but I'll give it another shot as I surely hope that Star Trek fans are a little more understanding and diplomatic than that first initial experience was.

    My name is Annie (Andrea legally but no one calls me that). I was born on an island called Korcula in Croatia. I went to visit my grandma in Bosnia (town of Tuzla) back in may 1992. The war broke out about a week after we got there so we were stuck in Tuzla for about a year, Sarajevo for about 2 years and then we finally managed to escape to Essen, Germany. I got into Star Trek during the war actually (there were quite a few UN officers who kept themselves occupied at night with various types of entertainment (when we had electricity that is) including watching tv and playing music)

    When I finally moved to Germany I officially became a big fan of ST. The Next Generation and Voyager in particular meant a great deal to me and helped me with my German (ST was dubbed in Germany). I live in Canada now (Vancouver) and am studying at UBC. I recently started watching Voyager again. I didn't watch it since it ended and quite surprisingly I'm as big of a fan all over again as I once was. This show, and Janeway's character in particular, have been such a great influence on my life and oddly enough I didn't even realize it until recently when I started watching the show again.

    That's about all. That's the short story :lol: I normally LJ more and I like to blog on occasion. I think this is my first ST forum experience here since I was 12! Back then I used to post on the Sat 1 forums (a german channel that aired ST had an ST section on their website). Glad to be here :)

    ^Wow, if that's the short story you could probably write a novel!

    Welcome to the forum. :)

    Welcome.

    As for waiting to write until you retire, best to do what Grisham did & write during your commutes.

    Not exactly a new fan. I watched about half of Voyager back during its run but I've just recently decided to watch it in its entirety. I'm nearing the end of S1 now so you'll probably see some posts from me here and there. :)

    I grew up in the early 90's watching TOS and TNG, and a friend from church gave us some DS9 tapes, but I didn't get to see VOY until we got a satelite dish in 2000, my sophomore year of high school. Loved it (actually before that I watched the trailers over and over on startrek.com...) I love all the series (and novels) but Voyager has a very special place in my heart (I can't call it my favorite, like when a parent loves all their kids, they're all their favorite in different ways.) I like to hang out in the TrekLit forum here. Used to post a fair amount about 5 years back, I think I used to be a Lieutenant Commander, but then I don't post in a long time and I lost my account somehow. Stripped of my rank, sigh. Anyways, glad to be here.

    Hi I'm Joel, I'm pretty new to Star Trek, only started watching Next Generation last year, and really got into it. Since then I've watched all of the series up to and including Voyager. Next Generation is my favourite, but I quite enjoyed Voyager especially that it was orientated towards the single goal of returning home. I'm 33, teaching english in China at present. I also enjoy Star Wars, Transformers G1 and epic movies such as Braveheart and Gladiator.
