    Hello Everyone! Welcome to the Enterprise Forum!

    We thought a who's who in the forum thread might be a fun way for us all to get to know each other a little better. If you're new, come in and tell us about yourself. If you've been around forever, please take a moment to share a few things about yourself.

    Feel free to say as little or as much as you want! :D

    I'll go ahead and start:

    My (screen)name is Top41. My real name is Kristine and I'm twenty-six years old. I've been a Trek fan since the ripe old age of seven, when I discovered TOS in syndication. I'm pretty sure the first episode I saw was "The Lights of Zetar," because I remember that funky light effect. I was hooked, and I've watched every Trek show since.

    Outside of Trek, I like Buffy, Angel, 24, and yes, Friends (which, for some reason, isn't too popular around these parts! :eek: ;) ). I also do a lot of reading--my favorite authors are Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen, and Alice Sebold. If you ever want a book recommendation, come to me! I work as a freelance book reviewer, so I read tons of books in every category--contemporary fiction, sci fi, horror, and general nonfiction (as in, interesting books about geisha, dwarfs, and screwed up twentysomethings; I probably couldn't help you with the latest economics tome or physics text).

    So, that's me! Who's next? :D

    I'm Stewey, 24, from England, and have been a fan since about 1988 when I first saw TOS on a rerun, later the same year TNG premiered on BBC2 and I was hooked ever since with my favourite Trek show being DS9.

    My real name is Nick. I'm 21. I've always liked Trek, and my favorite is DS9.

    I got hooked when my local UPN affiliate decided it'd be a good idea to show DS9 and Voyager reruns back-to-back five times a week late at night.

    I'm a female, age 52, and I live with my husband and a cat. I watched TOS in the sixties, but no ST after that. I came to Enterprise strictly for Scott Bakula; he's been a favorite of mine since Eisenhower & Lutz in the late 80s.

    How did you get started in that? If you couldn't guess from my screen name, I'm a freelance proofreader/editor. And most of my work is technical--I just finished an economics text, and am now in the middle of a Calculus book!

    I read a lot for pleasure, too, anything from ancient history (especially concerning Alexander the Great and the Persian wars) to mysteries (nothing graphic). Also contemporary fiction if it isn't too angst-ridden.

    My name is Luanna, I'm 33 years old, I'm married and, as you can guess by my user name, I have a three-year old named Joe. I credit my husband with getting me started on Trek. He's been a fan since TOS and has watched each installment of Trek faithfully. I liked TNG, but ENT is the first Trek I've really gotten interested in.

    Apart from this, I enjoy reading, cooking and activites in my Church. I love old movies, especially the old monster movies! I know they're terrible but, when you've had a bad day and need a good laugh, there's nothing better! Right now, however, a good chunk of my time has been devoted to helping my husband in his new business. He's been in Electronics and home entertainment sales for 15 years (MOL) and he and his long time partner finally have their own store, which is doing very well so far. So, you see, if I can handle the stress of starting a new business, the things that go on around here are a walk in the park!! :D

    My name is Jason, I'm 35 and I've watched Trek in every incarnation since the seventies. I teach highschool chemistry and biology. TOS and TNG were part of the reason I went into the sciences. I like all versions of ST but I am basically a space junkie. If it has space travel, I will watch it.

    OK, tag me, I'm in....

    My name is Rich, I'm 39 years young (don't mind the grey hair, I've told it's distinguishing)and have been a Trek fan since I can remember. My older brother has told me that I watched TOS "first run" on NBC as a tot. I have to take his word for it; I vaguely remember it then. I've seen every Trek incarnation and movie. I'm on my second marriage, have two boys of my own and two step kid's. Star Trek is just about the only TV I actually make time for in my busy schedule. My wife and boys sometimes watch Enterprise with me, so I guess you can say that Enterprise has three new fans because of me. I came to this BBS because of wanting to have others to discuss Trek with. Most of my Treks fiends at work have moved on and you can only discuss Trek with you brother-in-law for so long before the wives start giving us the evil eye. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it...

    Hello, my name is Geoff -

    Hello, Geoff!

    - and I'm 43 years old.

    Omigod, an ancient guy on the board!

    My first Trek experience was the first broadcast of TOS' "The Savage Curtain" at a cousin's house, which, at 9 years old, made a pretty powerful impression. Up until then, the most I really knew about science fiction was Tom Swift (ah, those were the days) -

    Tom Slick? The cartoon? Was that science fiction? :eek:

    - no, Tom Swift (Junior), with His Jetmarine, His Flying Lab, His Triphibian Atomicar, and His Repelatron Skyway. Basically, like the Hardy Boys for real geeks ;) Although I also got - and get - a big kick out of Tom Slick, too.

    Yay.

    In real life, I'm a data manager for a litigation support company based in the D.C. area (although I work from home in the heart of Indianapolis). Okay, that's what I do, not really what I am ...

    We've been wondering ...

    I'm a graphic artist, wannabe inventor, web designer and part-time amateur author. I was initially inspired to write by Trek, of course, but I never really applied myself to it seriously until ENT -

    But we thought you didn't like Enterprise ...

    ... because this was the first time I really felt like I could do better than what I'm seeing on the screen. Maybe so, maybe no ...

    Probably not, because you never finish anything ...

    ... but I have a lot of ideas, and if I can organize my time to do them and still earn a living and try have a life, then maybe I can contribute something real and substantial. In the meantime, I'm at least having fun.

    Well, we're glad one of us is ...

    The next few months, however, will probably find me less than productive, since it looks like I might be involved in the remodeling of an old house, but the result should be a great place to be creative, so in the long run, well worth it ...

    We'll be the judges of that, mister!

    Thanks for the opportunity to introduce myself, and leave you with a panoply of entertainment that describes me fairly well:

    Quick, how do you spell "panoply," and what does it mean, anyway?"

    • Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure - best time travel movie ever made (at least the most accurate)
    • Firefly - best space Western, and one of the best sci-fi shows in the past quarter century
    • Monty Python's Flying Circus - greatly responsible for my warped-but-erudite sense of humor
    • Wallace and Gromit - Claymation meets its match
    • UFO - highly underrated sci-fi from people who were used to working with puppets
    • Kolchak - The Night Stalker - Funny horror? Cool! "Vin-cen-zo!"
    • Pixar - Can these guys make a mistake? Must be tough being the main reason Disney still has profitable movies ...
    There's more, of course -

    Please don't list it all!

    - but that's all I think I'll list for now. It's enough of a sample to get the picture ;)

    Merry Christmas, all!

    Joyous Novell to you, too :rolleyes: (We thought he'd never leave ... ).

    I'm a Trek fan yes... I was actually drawned to Trek by Voyager itself and completely loved the show ;)
    Ever since, Star Trek in generall became my inspiration which got me interested in 3D graphics... and I like Enterpise completely... the best of all the previous Trek shows in my own opinion (and it's highly inspiriing to me cause of one particular character from the main cast and the show in generall ;) ).

    Other than Enterprise, I don't watch TV at all...
    I did use to like Angel, Smallville, Charmed and Dark Angel but in generall I prefer Enterprise to all of those ;)
    And since I can get to watch Enterprise via my PC only (and get to see Season 1 of Enterprise on air on TV atm) I don't watch TV at all...

    Hey yo. My real name is Al (so boring) and I'm a 19 year old dabbler and tinkerer way out in the boonies surrounding Vancouver, BC, Canada. I've been watching Trek in all incarnations since I was three or four years old, just in time for the first-run of TNG. I've managed to see every episode in the so-called canon at least once or twice, more like a dozen times over for TNG. My favourite series is DS9, while TNG has taken a backseat lately in favour of a growing respect for TOS and my current second favourite, Enterprise. Voyager had its moments, but my problems with the series continue to mount as I watch the reruns.

    Besides Star Trek, I'm also a big fan of Babylon 5, Doctor Who, Buffy/Angel, and Firefly, while Stargate and Farscape have never clicked with me. Outside of skiffy, I mostly stick to comedies, especially The Daily Show, Futurama, and Family Guy. I'm a big fan of Amazing Race when it's on, but otherwise I steer clear of reality TV. I consider myself to be a little too picky and cynical regarding movies and music, and I haven't read much of anything in a while now.

    Online, I have no less than a dozen different screen names - I'm best known as Pchan among the little 'net clique I've assembled (*cough*click-on-my-link*cough*) :)

    Just how do you spot a mistake in a Calculus book :lol: Just kidding - although do you need to know anything about the subject your reading for technical type books?


    *clears throat*

    Well, my names Tina and I just turned 27 on Monday ( :eek: I'm getting old!!!!!). I'm from the land Down Under where we are all upside down :lol:

    My other big obsession besides Trek at the moment is Hong Kong film and pop. That's why the twins are in my avatar - there the latest craze and i'm on the bandwagon :p

    Eddie,29,from Roanoke,VA(U.S.A.). First got hooked on TOS during syndicated reruns in the late '70s and saw TMP the very first month it was in theaters back in 1979. Followed the subsequent films and spinoff series faithfully and energetically until VOYAGER started to bore/annoy me around 1998-99,then regular viewing trailed off a bit. Back in full force for ENTERPRISE's prequel concept and even got a moderate kick out of INSURRECTION and NEMESIS.

    Against my better judgement I post. ;)

    My name's Chris and I'm a computer engineering major at Portland State University. Both my parents were big TOS nuts, so I was brainwashed at an early age. Now at age 23 I review ST:E in my spare time...fortunately my family's taste in Trek seems to be similar, since we all seem to like ENT the best of the TOS spinoffs. So I don't get in too much trouble for monopolizing the TV.

    I "work" as a web developer for PSU:ES. This involves posting on the TrekBBS and debating Trek with my Trekkie boss.

    I grew up watching classic SF and horror movies. So I'm very opinionated when it comes to the genre... I'm still holding out for an American movie studio that understands Godzilla! :D

    Hi y'all. Tripsy here.

    My real name's Carol.....my birthday's coming up next week and I don't even want to think about my age. So I will just say I'm ageless. :D

    I'm married and have about 4 cats (hubs and I are their staff). Right now I'm unemployed.

    I can remember watching Star Trek with my parents when it was first run. I've always watched Trek in one form or another but hadn't seen it in years until one night about 2 years ago. It was late and I was waiting for hubs to get home from work....so I turned on the TV, and ENT was on. I got hooked.....so now I'm watching VOY and DS9 again too. While I enjoy the whole cast of ENT, I'd have to say my favorite is Connor. Yes....proud Tuckerite here.

    I also watch football and the soaps, and I enjoy going to movies. I've got 2 I'm waiting to see....ROTK and Cold Mountain. AND I just got my DVD player....so now I can overdo buying DVDs. mwahahahahaha Note to Paramount: Season One ENT on DVD please!! And one more thing....I'm a moron when it comes to today's technology. :lol:

    Happy Holidays guys!

    Tripsy :cool:

    Hello, I'm Per and I'm a Trekker...

    *Hi Per*

    :p

    33 years old Swede who discovered Star Trek in 93 or 94 when one of our channels showed the 13 first episodes of TNG. Later, another channel began showing TOS and the rest of TNG.

    The saddest thing about Sweden is that only the first season of DS9 have been shown here. (1-3 on a pay channel I don't have).

    Beyond ST I like most other SF/Fantasy. Reads a lot too.

    I'm Peter from The Greater Vancouver area, got hooked during the 6th season of Voyager, since then I've watched almost all of the episodes of the spinoffs, never really got into the orignial series. My favourite series is Deep Space Nine, but it's lowered in my opinion somewhat due to the fact that I havn't seen it for long time.

    I like Enterprise, I especially like this Xindi arc, and have been tuning in every Wednesday since The Expanse.

    Bonz (Bonnie, or more commonly, "Bon", in real life). 45 (damn, I had to calculate to remember that age) and have been a Trek fan since I was in 8th or 9th grade (I can't remember which, I only remember discussing it endlessly in choir class with my girl friends, and I took choir both years.) I did see some first run Trek, but I honestly don't much remember it, it would have been from the first two seasons as season three aired past my bedtime. :D

    TOS is my favorite, closely followed by DS9. I like TNG, although it's a bit too P.C. and sterile. VOY started off well, but became erratic and just self-destructed the last few years.

    I was eager to see what Scott Bakula could do, being a fan of his from Quantum Leap. I still like the actor, but am rather disappointed in Archer. I am quite fond of T'Pol (who surpassed my expectations), Tripp and Phlox (although the latter is lamentably underused.) This season has been the best and an episode actually made me cry. However, it suffers from the same problem as VOY, unevenness and utter predictability.

    In real life, I am an editor for a homeschooling magazine (see link in my sig ;) ) It's aimed at all, not only at those who are religious, homeschooling has branched out and is becoming more mainstream. Our curriculum is about historial time periods like Rome, The Great Depression, Victorian times, etc. I love history! And I get paid to edit it! :D

    Other than Trek obsessions: Genealogy. I spend oodles of time (and too much money) on it. I love it and have done it for 25 years.

    I like medical reality type books - such as books on Ebola, viruses, bioterrorism, etc. Yes, I'm a bit nuts but after getting nailed with a virus once that severely impacted me, I developed a fascination with the critters.

    I have three teenaged daughters (two of which can be persuaded to watch Trek in various incarnations, the other will but is not really a fan, and she prefers TOS (good kid!) ). One is in college and two in high school and I have a long-suffering husband (who also likes Trek. We're not quite sure how two people who didn't know that the other liked Trek til after we were married got together.)

    Originally from Pittsburgh, now living in the Ft. Lauderdale area.

    I'm Sally, I'm old enough to know better, and my favorite sci-fi series is DS9, followed by Farscape and Stargate SG-1. I've been hanging around here since Oct 1999, which makes me an old fogey. I think the BBS was just a few months old then.

    I can remember when there was no ENT forum and we had our discussions about "BOTF" in Future of Trek. I remember when TrekBBS was blue! And when there was no TNZ! And people had TNZ fights in the middle of Trek discussions! :D Ah, those were the good old days. I don't remember Core, but I do remember when there were people here who remembered Core. I make all my own avatars with Photoshop and (lately) Illustrator.
